Basic Camping Essentials You Need to Know

Written by Jimmy Rustling

Camping is a great experience to reconnect with nature. It’s your opportunity to detach yourself for a while from city errands, gadgets, life stresses, and social media. Camping provides your body with fresh air and an invigorating atmosphere. Aside from that, it’s an excellent way to build a strong relationship with friends and family while enjoying conversations around a bonfire.

Pack lightly and efficiently

Packing is always a hassle for most when travelling. When camping, it is essential to bring things which you think you will need the most. Leave all unnecessary stuff because this will consume space in your bag. Rolling clothes and placing them inside the pillowcase is a great way to maximise all your bag space.

Bring natural mosquito repellent

Mosquitoes are the expected visitors when camping, and you don’t want them to ruin your night. If you are someone who is allergic to chemically formulated insect repellent, then burning some herbs can help you out. You may use lavender, lemon balm, sage, or citronella.

Beat the eggs

Eggshells are very fragile. They may crack with a simple bump against anything. A great campong hack is to crack the eggs before leaving and place them in a water bottle. There is no need to carry whisking tools and worry where to throw the shells. Simply shake the bottle and you are good to go for great scrambled eggs.

Vacuum seal your food

Aside from clothes, food is the most important thing to bring for camping. Vacuum sealing your meals can help you pack more. It is a way of removing all the air and compressing the food. It is also a perfect idea to preserve your food and keep insects away.

First aid to go!

Do not forget your first aid kit. Camping is fun but also quite dangerous if you go unprepared. Having a first aid kit with you can alleviate a minor injury while preventing it from becoming a serious one.

Safety matches

Matchboxes can quickly get wet or crumpled. It is best to place the matchsticks in a secured small screw cap container to keep them dry. Another top tip is to stick sandpaper on top of the container for more comfortable use of the matchsticks.

The smaller, the better

Pack your condiments in multiple little compact containers. In this way, you can enjoy a delicious meal without bringing all your big, different sizes of spices. Do this also with your toiletries like liquid soap, conditioner, shampoo, and lotion. Pour small, sufficient amounts, into handy containers. Estimate the amount based on how many uses you’ll need.

Use an RV for your next camping trip

Include in your next camping getaway Kilmory Bay in Scotland. Do not miss the valley of Coire Gabhail which is surrounded by rich mountains and land carpeted by beautiful flower meadows. Don’t forget to discover the pleasant experience of Loch Assynt. Have a memorable experience at the Cairngorms National park. Owning your own Motorhome is an asset that makes trips like this a regular option to your holiday schedule. Owning your own Motorhome opens up a wealth of opportunity to enjoy regular short/long term holidays without the hassle and costs of booking hotels etc.  Check out motorhomes in Scotland for a wide selection of models across all budgets that offers you the freedom to travel in luxury whenever you need a break. With your own motorhome, you can also bring a lot more things on your trips to feel like you’re in the comfort of your own home.
