Do you remember your childhood days when rolling, wriggling and lying down on ground were parts of having fun while playing with your friends. But, You will definitely not lie down just anywhere without judging the fact whether the place is smooth enough to offer you enough rest or not. On a camping tour you will definitely not like to sleep on a rocky surface with hard stones jutted deep into your skin.
If you are on a camping tour, you must have plans to travel a lot the next day with a loaded backpack. You simply cannot afford to do without a good night’s sleep. No matter how experienced you are in camping, it is an important task to take care about a few things to make your camping tour a cherishing memory. Here are a few things to remember before selecting the apt place for camping.
View: A place with a wonderful view is definitely the first and foremost criterion for selecting it for camping. You will never put up a tent anywhere just to spend a night and make some good coffee for your self. It is important to do a considerable amount of research before zeroing in on a location that enthralls you after you wake up in the morning and leave you craving for more time spent purely with nature.
A Place Close to Water: The place for camping should not be more than 200 feet from any water body. Water is required for cooking washing and even to make a cup of tea. It is not a good idea to depend much on stored water that you carry to your tent and therefore select a dry area for camping just because you like the view around the area.
Remain Safe from Wind: The place you select for camping should be airy enough to keep you cool and dry even in humid weather. But, excessive wind can prove troubling for a safe camping tour. You need to know how much wind your tent can withstand before you buy one. There is no way out other than trusting the reviews by the shop owner. At least you can select a place for camping that does not sweep your tent away from the place or damage it.
Well-drained, Hard & flat surface for erecting the tent: No matter which season you choose for camping, it is a wise decision to remain prepared for puddles if it rains. The surface must be flat and hard enough to provide support to the tent. Clear away debris weeds and rocks from the area you want to put up your tent.
It is true that you need to consider a number of things before packing for your camping tour. It is required as unlike a hotel stay, you are not promised of any room service or cannot complaint for stinking toilets. It is you and the surrounding nature who will be together and will be sharing some moments of serenity.
