Get comfortable using all of your safety and survival equipment and practice using it the correct way. It is not the time to start learning how to navigate with a compass and map after you are already lost. It`s not the time to learn how to start a fire with a 6 year old flare you`ve been carrying forever in your pack. It`s not time to learn about safe rafting and best survival practices after you`re in danger. Put aside some time to learn about all the features of your camping gear before you head out to your favorite campground. You might be surprised to learn how incredible your GPS really is once you understand how to use the backtrack feature. You will also be mighty thankful when you learn the proper weight distribution for your backpack. Take time to learn about your camping gear - practice around your home before you venture into the great outdoors.
Here are just a few things to consider and think about. o Consider where you`re going what your activities will consist of and how long you plan to stay in order to determine what gear you might need. o Will you be Camping Fishing Hiking Backpacking or maybe you just want to set up camp and chill for the weekend. You can even plan a combination.
Even if you`re on a tight budget a camping trip a day hike a family picnic by the lake or just a visit to your local park does not have to be expensive. Some facilities are free where others might charge a nominal fee that`s normally used to keep the facility more enjoyable. Some facilities are for use only during the daylight hours while others offer everything from day use overnight camping fishing hiking trails nature walks and etc.
Your camping gear isn`t just for outdoor adventure - keep your gear with you and use it as much as possible. It has unlimited uses in your daily life. Never go on a road trip without your outdoor pack. In all likelihood you`ll find an opportunity to use your camping - hiking - survival equipment close to home. It never fails - if you don`t have your camping gear with you you will need it.
