One cannot help but be impressed launching off (or cascading off) of one’s self-inflating, pop-up tents. You feel a gratifying sense of accomplishment and possibly a little anxiety, too.ulerel and hypothermia. Things can always take a worse turn, however.
It takes enormous skill and patience to stay both safe and well-prepared for the inevitable bad weather. First, the less you have to do to “pop up” your way into town, the better. Always proceed with caution.
In today’s strikerless world, there seems to be an endless choice of tactics for staying dry and warm. Here are five ways to stay just that.
Inflatable pads. These are the old-school comfort tools. They hang from beneath your sleeping bag, secure it snugly to the ground with a roll cord, and tightly fit to your body. They enable you to roll out of bed, roll over and jump into the amaranth (or whatever) and face the world.
Collapsible tent. Made from heavy duty fabric, these structures can be erected for compact storage. When not in use, the tent is easy to take down for storage. They are popular with hunters and campers.
Stakes. These items are used for fastening the tents, as well as for anchoring other equipments. They also can be used as clotheslines, chairs, and tarps for under the tents.
Tent hardware. Pins, straps, and other equipment are made to order, and can be done online. In addition to easy and fast set-up, various configuration options ensure that the tent of your dreams will fit your needs, too.
Once you have all the basic, essential camping and equipment pieces ready, you will be able to choose from the following:
– The tents are the most important, so you will need to choose based on the number of people in your party and the amount of equipment you will be keeping inside the tent. For this reason, consider purchasing a tent with a capacity rated two higher than the number of individuals who will be using it. For example, a family of four should choose a 6-person tent.
– The second most important equipment in camping, at least by me, is the cold-weather sleeping bag. Get a bag that is rated at least 10 degrees F colder than the temperature you plan to tent in. You can find the pad and liner as well as the sleeping bag all atonto eBay.com. In addition to the rating for the bag, be sure to read descriptions of how well it protect you from the elements. The listings will inform you which is best for your needs.
– I would also recommend that you have additional rain ponchos to use in the tent, especially if you are planning an extended camp out in the tent. These Ponchos can stand up to the weather just as well as a tent does.
– Lastly, I would like to give you a brief overview of some other camping equipment that can make your camping experience a better experience.
– A camping stove makes cooking and serving food a lot easier when camping. There are many greatcamping stoves available on the market.
– Coleman coolers are a must have. They help keep your food colder and your drinks easier. You can find them in many different colors and styles.
– Lanterns are also very useful when camping. Bring extra batteries for them, just in case you lose your electricity. You can get extra batteries and lanterns at any outdoor sporting good stores or even at Wal-Mart.
– And of course, just like in life, you will need clothes. and that means bottoms, shirts, caps, socks, underwear and sweaters. Remember to bring a bathing suit in case the weather is too cold. And don’t forget to bring 3M Scotch- Tape – it comes in handy for a lot of things.
