4 Ways To Make Camping Easier

Camping with the family is a fun idea! You can get away from the worries and troubles of the ‘real world’ and bathe yourself in the beauty of nature while also spending some quality time with your kids or spouse (or both). Some people have put off the idea of camping, however, because it seems like there is a lot of things that you need to consider, and a lot that can go wrong. It’s true that you do need to plan before you can go for a successful camping trip, but once you have and you take a look at these clever hacks to make your camping so much easier, you won’t have any issues at all.

Make A Lantern
You can buy camping lanterns in any good supply store, or online, and they are truly useful. Although they’re great for the outside and making your way through your campsite in the dark, they’re not so great for inside your tent as most of them are just too bright. Therefore, it’s better to make your own so you can be more comfortable. All you need to do is full a plastic container with water and strap a headlamp to it, but make sure the light is pointing towards the water. The light will be much better that way.

Use Solar Lighting
Another lighting hack comes in the form of solar lights. At some point, someone (probably everyone) is going to need to get up in the night to use the bathroom. Getting there is not a hardship during the day when you can see where you’re going, but at night it can be difficult, and even with a flashlight you can still easily trip up. If you bring solar lights with you and use them to mark the way to and from your tent, you’ll stop any trips and falls and save plenty of cuts and scrapes from happening.

Pre-Cut Wood
Campfires are a must when camping but, depending on what time of year you are sleeping out, there might not be much usable firewood around. In the fall and winter, for example, the wood near your campsite is likely to be damp meaning it won’t burn properly. You can take pre-cut wood with you and keep it in your truck for when you need it. If you can’t fit the wood in your vehicle or you’re camping during the warmer months then invest in the best splitting axe you can find to ensure that you have enough wood for your all-important campfire.

Less Cooking Equipment
Cooking over the campfire is also a necessary and enjoyable thing to do when you’re camping, but it usually means you have to bring a lot of cooking equipment with you. Even if you’re not sure you’re going to need it, it can often be best to bring it. You can manage with much less cooking equipment than you think you need, though, if you plan your meals and look for easier ways to cook them. For example, eggs can be cracked into a mason jar and shaken hard before they are poured into a pan to make scrambled eggs.
