Do you love camping? If you do, or you want to go camping, below are some tips that you can use to make your camping trip a lot easier on yourself and everyone else that you’re camping with.
1. Work Chronologically
Do you have a really small space? If you’re dealing with something like the typical trunk, place those items you’re going to need last at the bottom. This way, when you’re pulling into camp at night, your sleeping bag and tent’s on the top and the stuff you need the next day’s on the bottom. This will help avoid you hunting for something you need right away when you’re tired and you’ve been traveling all day.
2. Assign Places and Spaces
If you organize everything at your trip’s beginning, the true challenge is going to come after you have been traveling and camping for a couple of days. You should try to designate tubs for assorted camp parts: stoves, cookware, utensils, and fuel canisters would all go in your kitchen tub. Pads, hammocks, and sleeping bags all go in your camping one. These types of tubs will nicely stack and they also make great tables when you’re camping. You also want to make sure your first aid items and headlamps are handy!
3. Deal With the Awkward Objects
Items that are long like camp chairs and fishing rods aren’t going to fit anywhere well. If you can’t, store those types of objects in a compartment that you put on your roof. Use some durable straps if you’re securing it to your rack and make sure you’re double-checking to ensure that your equipment is secure before you take off. You can also strap down duffle bags that are heavy-duty onto your top deck. Just remember that they’re not completely waterproof and the rain can get in through the zippers.
4. Leave Nature in Nature
When you’re going home after you’ve been camping, chances are that your gear’s going to be covered with silt, sand, dirt and everything else. Any mud can be managed by folding your wet tents and tarps inwards. You don’t want to stuff them. It’s essential that you’re making it easy to get them dry when you’re home. if you prefer to do the kitchen cleaning once you’re at home, just bring your used cookware home in your cooler after your food’s been devoured.
When you plan and when you have stacked everything correctly, camping can be a lot of fun. Plan your camping trip and pack your car accordingly. It will help your trip go a lot more smoothly overall.
