Camping Tricks & Tips


By Anne Peterson

As the warm weather rolls around, camping excursions are planned, tents are being aired out, and campers everywhere are itching to set out for the wilderness once again. This season promises to be a busy one, with more campers and RVers roaming the country’s campgrounds than ever before. But before you venture out, consider this list of camping tips that will enhance your experience.

• Drink plenty of water when camping in high altitudes (over 7,000 feet). Three to five quarts a day will prevent dehydration and high altitude sickness, which cause headaches, nausea and muscle cramps, and makes you susceptible to hypothermia and frostbite. Not a fun way to spend a vacation.

• Only when you can sift your fingers through the ashes of your fire can you be sure that it is truly out.

• Use a pine cone or a handful of sand to scrub your dishes clean. That way you are not always searching for the dirty, smelly pot scrubby.

• Fill your water bottle with boiling hot water, wrap it in a towel, and put it in your sleeping bag a few minutes before you climb in. This makes for cozy sleeping quarters.

• If you really can’t seem to warm up, and you and your campmate’s sleeping bags are the same brand, zip the bags together to make one bag and cuddle up close. Nothing beats this method on a chilly night.

• Rub a bar of soap alon...
