What is camping? Camping is an experience living in the wilderness, surrounded by godís nature, to find adventures and excitements or peace and tranquillity to each individual. It is also about acquiring the independence, self-reliance, and satisfaction that come from knowing how to take care of one's own daily needs and the needs of companions in the deep woods. How do we get these benefits mentioned about camping? We get it by doing activities that are available during a camping trip such as rock climbing, canoeing, exploring the woods or having a swim by the waterfall. Communication between each camping member is also vital for a successful camping trip. Even though if we did all those things mentioned earlier, it would not be as enjoyable as to be well prepared before going for a camping trip. Thus, to prepare for a camping trip, we must plan our camping trip before going, know some basic guides for camping, and our body must be in good shape.
How to Prepare for a Camping Trip
To start off, we must plan our camping trip before going to the woods. We have to decide with whom we are camping with. This is a vital step because we donít know whether we are camping with our family that have a lot of little children or with friends which is mostly female. By knowing whom we are camping with, we can easily be aware if they are prone to danger in the wilderness. We also have to plan how long to stay and which location is the best for camping so that we can maximize the viewing point and the safety of the location. Bringing the right type of food and packing the appropriate amount of food is also crucial. Bring less perishable food such as chicken, cheese, and milk because it can be easily spoiled and always bring a lot of water when camping since it is hard to find water that is safe to drink in the woods.
Apart from that, having some knowledge about the basic camping guide can be really helpful for us. One of the steps in a camping guide is to bring some basic survival tools such as a knife, a magnesium stone, a whistle, some matches, some chords, and so on. These items are very helpful when building something or in an emergency situation. Other than that, steps such as finding a water source and how to purify the water are very important if we ran out of clean water to drink in the woods. The ability to make a fire without matches and only with tinder and sticks can be really helpful if you ran out of matches or any fire starter.
Last but not least is having a healthy and a fit body would be the most important thing before going on a camping trip. It can be troublesome for everyone if we have a weak stamina and cannot catch up with the other when having vigorous activities during camping. Furthermore, without a healthy body, you cannot do most of the fun activities since you are too sick to play. Other than that, people might catch your flu if you are sick during camping and it will be a lot harder for the healthy people to take care the sick people during camping.
Having a great time is essential during a camping trip. It can help us pertain with the elements that were mentioned earlier. In order to have a great time on a camping trip, we must be prepared for everything before going camping. This is important to avoid any unwanted events that can disrupt the enjoyable times on a camping trip so that you can have sweet memories rather than a forgettable event.
