How to Make Camping Better: A Guide for the Non-Camper
To those who don’t have any experience with camping, or have very little, it can seem more like a chore than a vacation, however by looking at it with the right mentality and learning a few tips and tricks about camping as a whole, you can achieve a much better time, even without the pool and spa featured at hotels you may spend your normal vacations at.
Camping must be understood – it is not the same as staying at a five-star hotel. Instead, you are out in the wilderness, with only the resources you bring with you to take care of yourself during your time there. Once you know that showers are probably minimal unless you bring your own, and you may have to use the bathroom in a port-a-potty or in a self-dug hole (unless, once again you’ve brought your own) you can immediately kick out any unrealistic portrayals of camping, and be on your way to a better time.
With the following information you can instantly plan and prepare for a wonderful trip in the midst of nature. Just understand the basics, know to bring exactly what you need plus any essentials, and find things within camping that will create the best possible experience for you and your family.
