Camping’s all about having the grandest time in the outdoors.
Whether it’s just in your backyard or somewhere in the middle of a forest, it’s definitely an experience we highly recommend.
If you’re about to go on your first ever camping trip, then you’re in luck. We’ve prepared some of the best tips to turn you into an instant pro.
- Make a list beforehand
Camping is better if you’re prepared yourself for it. For one, creating a list ensures you’re not forgetting anything. Plus, it helps you become more ready for the adventure. So go right ahead and write down every single thing you need to bring. You’ll pat yourself on the back for it.
- Forget about the ice
There are nifty tricks to effectively packing for your trip. One, you should freeze those water bottles instead of bringing ice. This way, the rest of the food in your cooler stays cold. Plus, you don’t have to do too much heavy-lifting and you’ve got cold, icy water ready for you anytime.
- Wrap tape around bottles
Tape is a camper’s best friend. You’ll never know when you’re going to need it but you definitely will. So instead of bulking your pack with rolls of tape, wrap them around containers or bottles. It will save you so much space.
- Learn to make a fire
Nope, lighter fluid and coals don’t count. I mean, what’s the fun in camping if you can’t make a proper fire from scratch? Go ahead and learn how before your trip. There are tons of videos and instructions available online.
- Cook with tinfoil
Next to tape, tinfoil is another one of camper’s best friends. It holds well against the fire, locks in moisture and flavor and doubles as a serving tray. Foil pack cheesy fries, anyone?
