Camping is one of the most popular ways of travelling these days. It is very important to know how to prepare for one. Listed below are some of the must have gears when camping.
Use Microfiber Towels
These towels are small but very absorbent so it doesn’t take up so much space but is very helpful especially when camping near bodies of water.
If camping in spots with no basic amenities, then make your own emergency toilet with a milk crate, a bucket and a plastic. Place the milk crate upside down and make a hole in the middle just the size of the bucket’s hole. The crate will serve as the toilet seat and the bucket as the catcher. To use, place a plastic large enough to go into the bucket. Once done using, remove plastic, dispose of properly and add a new plastic for the next user.
Keep Mosquitoes Away
You can keep mosquitoes at bay by adding bundles of sage into your campfire. The smell of burning sage is a mosquito deterrent.
Mini First Aid Kit
When camping, you will be busy with so many activities that at times you will find yourself away from camp most of the time. So, it is only prudent to have a mini first aid kit that you can bring anywhere with you. By using an old Altoids tin or an old prescription bottle, fill it with band aids, alcohol prep pad, and ointments.
Hand Wash Station
As part of your body protection, hand washing is an important way to protect yourself from illness. Being at camp doesn’t mean you have to forgo washing your hands because of difficulty getting water. This is easily remedied by making use of an empty laundry detergent dispenser.
Make Single-use Soap
With a peeler, peel a bar of soap. Each peel of soap becomes single use soap. Perfect for hand washing use and even for washing mosquito bites to relieve the itchiness.
Single-use Ointment Packets
Bringing those whole tubes of ointment can be bulky. What to do? Cut up a straw into 1 to 1.5 inch lengths. Seal one end and fill with ointment, then seal the other end. Voila, you now have a single use ointment packs. You can even color code them for easy identification. Add to your mini first aid kit and you are good to go hiking and camping.
