Planning a Camping Trip

Basically, camping equipment can be divided into three general groups: shelter, sleeping accommodations, and cooking equipment. The first group includes camping tents, which of course ensure basic protection against outdoor hazards. The second group consists of sleeping accommodations such as sleeping bags, small cots, comforters, and pillows as just the basics. The final group includes cooking essentials such as a cooking stove, water container, cooler, a can opener, Swiss knife, utensils, and of course, charcoal. After all, camping would not be as fun without an outdoor barbecue.

Camping Tents

Choosing the right tent depends on the number of campers and the main purpose of the camping trip. There are many different kinds of tents out there, and among those being sold, Coleman tents boast of a wide range of products to choose from. There are tents made especially for backpacking, which is why these are made from lightweight materials that can easily be assembled or dismantled in virtually seconds. There are also freestanding dome tents that are easier to set up compared with others, and there are also cabin-type tents that can provide utmost privacy and comfort. As was previously mentioned, the trick to choosing the right kind of tent to bring is to count the number of participants and what kind of camping trip will be carried out. Check if your old tent is still in top shape; if not, consider buying a new one by checking out the range of Coleman tents sold today, among many other choices.

Comfort in the wild

Just because you and your family are outdoors does not mean that you sleep in less comfort than you would at home. When it comes to sleeping essentials while on a camping trip, you must bring with you sleeping bags and pads as well as comforters. You may also choose to bring a cot if any family member feels uncomfortable sleeping on the ground. If you are camping near rivers or on high altitude camping sites—places that tend to be a bit cooler—consider bringing extra comforters to ensure protection against cold weather. Next to camping tents, sleeping materials are the next most important equipment you should have with you. Furthermore, if you have small children with you, consider bringing these essentials in extra amounts because you will never know if you will be needing extra for any member of the family.

Having a picnic

Again, just because you are outdoors, that does not mean that you have to eat less comfortably than when you are at home. So that you and your family can comfortably eat out, you need to bring with you a superb set of cooking equipment that will allow you to whip up a feast easily. For example, your mess kit must be complete (cooking and eating utensils, pots and pans, can opener, etc.). You must also have enough food and water supply securely placed in airtight and spill-proof containers. Next, you need a basic stove through which you can cook your food. Finally, what good is a camping trip without a bonfire? Thus, ensure that you have enough supply of charcoals.
