Plan Ahead For Your Next Camping Trip
Summertime is here and it's time to start planning your next camping trip! Camping is one of life's joys, but it requires some preparation. Whether you're camping with family, friends, or on your own, knowing how to plan a camping trip is important. So, before going out on your next adventure, Traveling Breeze has some tips for you to ensure a smooth and fun camping experience!
Envision your ideal camping experience
Knowing how you want to spend your camping trip will help to determine a lot when planning your trip. Do you envision yourself sleeping in a tent or an RV? Do you need to reserve a campsite with RV hookups and amenities or will you be roughing it? What kind of activities are you wanting to do? Consider who you're camping with, and what their expectations are as well. Your ideal camping trip may be a great adventure full of hikes off of beaten paths, living off the land, and sleeping beneath the open sky, but your friends and family may have a more conservative idea of "roughing it" - which includes showers, indoor bathrooms, and close proximity to civilization.
Plan your menu ahead of time
Sure, this may sound like a silly suggestion, but there's only so much of eating hot dogs and s'mores a person can take before getting burned out on it - especially if you're planning a week long camp trip. Make sure your meal plan has a healthy balance of foods for everyone's taste. You can meal prep some easy and healthy grab-and-go meals that don't require cooking or can be cooked over the campfire to avoid having to pack the entire kitchen. Also plan accordingly to be sure there's enough food to last the entire trip. Don't rely solely on the idea that you're going to be eating fresh caught fish during your trip, because even the best fisherman has their slow days and comes home empty handed.
Make a checklist of gear to pack
In the excitement of starting your camping trip it's easy to run off and leave essential items behind. To avoid this headache, make a list of the things you will need during your excursion. Be sure to pack them the night before you leave and to double check as you're loading up the vehicle. To make this easier, keep your designated camping gear in totes and stored alongside your tents, lanterns, air mattresses, and Breezy Buddy Fan-Cooling Camp Chairs. By having the basic camping stuff already packed, all you'll need to focus on is what doesn't fit in the tote - making your packing time and odds of leaving something behind minimal.
When it comes to planning a camping trip, there are a lot of details to dial in. A little advanced planning can make the difference between a positive camping experience full of great memories and one that goes down as a “bad time had by all” kind of trip. Plan ahead, be prepared, and have fun!
