Camping is an enjoyable outdoor activity. Camping is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while also making your trip more enjoyable. However, you should be fully prepared for all kinds of unexpected events when camping like you would be if you were in your home and prepared for any unplanned event. Camping sites could be the home of wild animals and other intruders, therefore, you should be extra cautious. In order to protect yourself, what should you not bring with you camping?
First, don’t bring a boat dock. Boats can tip easily so it is recommended to have a dock nearby or on the ground. Near the shore is usually an ideal location for a boat dock. However, if you’re far enough away from the shoreline, a boat dock might be dangerous.
Even when the plants or herbs are native to your region it is not recommended to be brought. Some native plants can be poisonous, especially in areas of grass. Some plants can cause vomiting, nausea and diarrhea when eaten. Inform the authorities at the campground immediately if you camp outdoors near poisonous plants or other dangerous substance. The plants as well as poisonous ones are not to be consumed, or taken into the wild.
Do not use any tents or other large portable structures for shelter while camping in the open air. Tents and big structures can collapse easily and injure people. To keep warm in the cold you can make use of small bunks or an improvised fireplace ring.
Outdoor camping requires you to not bring gas stoves or cooking pots. Even charcoal grills could pose dangerous to burn when used in woods. Instead, bring along an assortment of cooking tools that are non-metallic, such as shovels, spatulas, brushes and hoes. Make sure you have plenty of water along with good camping gear.
Rain cover materials and tent poles that are waterproof are recommended to be used as often as is possible. If the weather is extremely hot, a sturdy rain cover will keep you and your sleeping bag safe from sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Avoid wearing any sleeping bag made from synthetic fibers. These synthetic fibers may make your skin get itchy or rashes. Synthetic materials also can prevent your air passages from completely removing oxygen. A well-designed camping bag will allow air to circulate around you when you sleep and allow for air circulation.
