Are you headed camping? Here are some tips for gathering wood, and other ideas for keeping entertained during a camping trip. Camping promotes teamwork and family togetherness and I highly recommend it.
Fix the fire before you go to sleep for the night with big logs which will slow burn during the night so there are plenty of coals in the morning.
Place all games in a plastic bag with pens so that you have pens to keep score.
A tarp comes in vary handy in a campsite so purchase one for an awing, to cover excess belongings or even hang over tents, which may leak.
Use a tarp to cover wood, this prevents it from getting wet, yet it is easily lifted when wood is needed.
Camping is a wonderful way to relax over the summer, and it is one of the cheapest vacations around. You can camp at a public campground, private campground or even your own backyard.
Battery operated lights from the dollar store are a necessity in a camper or even a tent.
Grilled hotdogs were the name of the game and boy were they great. Grab some extender marshmallow poles from your favorite sporting goods or department store. They are great not only for grilling hotdogs over an open fire, but also for grilling marshmallows for your gram crackers and chocolate confections.
Extended grilling sticks make cooking hotdogs and marshmallows over a campfire safer.
Purchase a used camper. If you can afford one, for a few hundred dollars and it is in good shape, purchase it quickly to sleep in. Make any repairs before you head camping this way you are ready to enjoy camping when you head out.
