Heading out into the wild outdoors is a regular pastime for a lot of people to enjoy on a yearly, monthly, or even weekly basis. If you’re the kind of person that loves to pitch your tent in a new camping spot every other week, then you probably have plenty of tips and tricks for staying comfortable and packing your food.
But what if you get stuck somewhere dangerous? This collection of tips has the potential to keep you safe when things turn sour on your next camping trick. You’ll be more comfortable, be able to start fires quicker, keep yourself dry, and much more. Pick up a new tactic for your next adventure.
If you go out camping for a few nights, there's no need to do laundry. But, those who go on longer camping trips will know that doing laundry is an absolute necessity. This obviously means that besides finding a place to do your laundry you'll also have to hang it out to dry.
That's when the quest for a solution to the getting your laundry dry begins. But fortunately for these campers, they found the perfect resource which came in the form of an abandoned camper van. They could use it to set up their clothes line which certainly helped their clothes get dry.
Gone With the Wind
Venturing out into nature, an open field becomes your playground, and your tent becomes your sanctuary. However, as some of the previous photos can attest to, even the sturdiest of tents can be blown away when the wind gets strong enough. And here we see another man trying to stop his tent from blowing away.
This tent is quite literally gone with the wind. It should be no surprise that campers will be challenged by the elements of nature at some point in an outdoor excursion. One can only hope he eventually ends up catching it so he can enjoy some peace and quiet.
Lay Down a Soft Layer
If you like to take a nap in a tent every once in a while, you know that where you set up can make a big difference. You have to go around and get rid of all the sticks, sharp stones, and other bits and pieces before you set down your temporary home. However, here’s a handy way to make things quicker and more comfortable.
Bring along a bunch of those interlocking foam pad tiles that are so common in preschool rooms or the like. You’ll want to trim them down to the size of your tent so they don’t get rained or snowed on, but they both add comfort and can block the cold ground from affecting you more than it has to.
Make Tin Can Bread
Hopefully, you’ve never been in a situation when you needed to find a fast food source. It’s not fun, and we’re here to make sure you have plenty of options if it ever does happen. If you happen to have the supplies for bread but nothing that you think can serve as an oven, try using a simple tin can.
You’ll need a smaller can, like a soup can, and a bigger one, like a coffee, can, big enough so the smaller can doesn’t touch the sides. Make your dough, and while letting it rise, layer some small stones on the bottom of the bigger can. Generously grease the interior of the smaller can and tip your dough inside.
