Must Have Products For Your First Camping Trip
Sure we all want to get back to our ancestral routes of forging unexplored land, sleeping under the stars, building a fire and cooking in the great outdoors. For now, Daniel Boone, before we start conquering the mountains of Washington State, lets get you acclimated adidas football to camping in a more normal atmosphere.
If you are going on your very first camping trip there are certain must haves that your list should have written on it to make sure you are well prepared. What? You do not have a list? Ok that is step one. Get a piece of paper out and make a list of the items you are going to bring. Also, as a quick tip, on this list write down what your meals will be for each day and then shop accordingly.
What would camping be without a tent? It would more than likely be miserable if you have never camped before. You would be left either sleeping in your vehicle or on the ground. I have camped without a tent and although it is not a catastrophic event, camping in a tent is a lot nicer, especially if it should rain. Make sure you get a tent that sleeps the number of people plus two that you are going to bring. In other adidas football words if four people are going camping, get a tent that sleeps six. If you get a tent that sleeps four people, you will be crammed in there like sardines.
You can pick these up at any home store like Home Depot. Lowes, or Ace Hardware. Make sure you get the plastic brown or blue tarps not the cloth or clear plastic painting tarps. You can use tarps to string (don’t forget rope or string) between trees to create coverings over the area where you will eat. This is especially helpful if it is raining. No one wants to eat in the rain. You can also place tarps underneath your tent to prevent water from seeping up through the ground and the bottom of your tent. Just make sure the tarp you put under your tent is folded smaller than the tent bottom. If it is larger, the tarp will actually catch the adidas football water and create a layer of water between the tarp and tent bottom. You can also throw a tarp over top of your tent to create an extra layer over your tent’s rainfly. Although most tents today are constructed very well and prohibit the rain from penetrating, a tarp is like having ex adidas football tra insurance so no rain enters in your tent at all.
There are many other items you could and probably will get such as lanterns, coolers, stoves and an endless list of supplies. The ones I mentioned, at least in my opinion, are must haves for first time campers.
