Camping Tips & Tricks
Use a checklist and include items for the climate. By writing down items ahead of time and checking them off, you will be more prepared for your adventure.
Line your cooking pan with foil. This will make cleanup quick and easy.
Premake food and vacuum seal it. Coming prepared with premade food will cut down on the amount of meal preparation time while outdoors.
Store matches in a sealed container. Even if it rains, they will be dry and ready to use. You can also glue sandpaper to the top of the container as a striker.
Hang a pocket-sized lantern in your tent to illuminate it at night and keep your hands free.
Seal your trash in a container at night to keep animals away.
Use a belt and "S" hooks to hang pots and pans around a tree for drying.
Roast a bundle of sage over the campfire to keep mosquitoes away.
Microfiber towels are absorbent, compact and dry quickly.
Freeze jugs of water instead of ice cubes to keep beverages and food cold in your cooler.
