Top 5 Camping Safety Tips
Camping is an exhilarating activity, especially on weekends after a hectic schedule. However, there are instances that all the fun can be ruined with a small example of being bitten by insects or with a heat stroke by dehydration, or a minor accident. We propose some tips to ensure your camping trip is safe for that adventurous week-long trip. Check out the following guide to learn how to make the most of your next campaign trip by keeping everyone safe and comfortable.
1. Stay Up-to-Date With the Weather
have a checkup on the weather forecast before you step out of your comfy home. Pack your baggage for any sudden surprises in the weather, like carrying a raincoat, a warm jacket, spare socks, a scarf, goggles, and sunscreen. Please check the waterproofing quality of the provided tents to ensure you don’t get wet at night if it rains.
2. Practice Campfire Safety
Pitch up your tent about 15 feet away from the campfire. While camp, be responsible for not letting the fire loose and spreading the area. Use a fire pot or make a fire pit to keep it contained. Never leave the fire unattended; keep a water bucket ready if it spreads and you want to extinguish it. After you camp and leave the place, ensure to drown all the embers, not just the red ones.
3. Use Insect Protection
insects and mosquitos can be a significant problem while outdoors. Keep an insect repeller in your backpack To protect yourself from mosquitos, ticks, and other insects. Make sure you check for leeches or ticks daily, especially in unsuspecting areas of your body. Use insect repellent that doesn’t dissolve easily in water. If it is a wet season, look for leaches. They can stick to your body quickly without you knowing it and keep sucking blood all day. Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants during hiking can avoid direct contact with insects. When you return from a hike or any outdoor activity, place your clothes in the dryer for about 10 min on high heat. That will kill any ticks or insects that may have come home on your clothing.
4. Be Aware of Allergies
Packing for first aid kit or other medications for your known allergies is an intelligent way to prepare for unexpected encounters. Keep essential medicines for dizziness, Aches, Cramps, and bites or places where plants or insects may have been in contact with your skin. Keep some bandages and sprays for any injuries related to muscles.
5. Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated means drinking Plenty of water. Not when you’re thirsty — it means drinking water regularly throughout the day, even if you don’t think you’re thirsty. It may be that you’re already dehydrated. Ask for an emergency first Aid box and some bottled water. Watch your pee Colour. The darker your pee is, the more water you need to drink.
