Ah, the official “camping season” is here.
I say official, because we like to camp in all weather, even in the winter. Truly. It’s relaxing, and the idea of getting away from it all is just so appealing, even if there is 2 inches of snow on the ground. Here are some of my favorite tried and true camping hacks, along with some great tips from friends of mine to help you get the most fun from your time in the “wild”.
Save your old coffee canisters throughout the year. They will come in handy when camping because they are non breakable, and easy to clean with a tight fitting lid. Coffee canisters can store all kinds of things for you such as:
What about food? You will need to eat while camping, and unless you plan on foraging for/fishing/gathering all your food, you have to bring some along with you.
Of course, you probably won’t want to run around naked while camping, right? RIGHT? So, you’ll need to bring some clothing with you.
What about sleeping arrangements?
You will most likely want to sleep at some point. When we go camping, I like to spend nearly the first entire day “downloading” and just unwinding. That means lots of naps. So, when you sleep, you may need some things to be more comfortable.
