Camping Tips Posted by: Rod Ford | 0 Comments

Shop all southern outdoor gear and supplies.

Here in the South, we're always looking for an excuse to pitch a tent and sleep under the stars. Here are some tips to make the most of your camping:

Whether you are hiking in to a remote spot or rolling the RV up to a hookup, it’s all about the gear. Glampers (glam – campers) know how to show up fully equipped with their rolling home-away-from home. Just don’t forget the tarps to cover sitting and eating areas in case of rain. For the rest of us, lightweight tents are easy to put up and take down, and if your back requires support, you can fit your air mattress in there with you. For the adventuring types, sleeping hammocks are great on cool, dry nights.

Nothing says camping quite like grilling. Whether it’s over an open campfire or with your portable grill, everything from steak to roasted marshmallows is game. Just remember to use bear-proof trash receptacles. You don’t want those guys to show up uninvited. Drinks Cold beer is a camping staple, of course. But wine can be refreshing, too, as long as you remember to bring your corkscrew. Speaking of, don’t forget to bring your bottle opener, too. There’s nothing worse than having a beverage but no way to open it.

Last, but not least, remember to relax. Hang out in a hammock, take an afternoon nap, catch up on some reading. Don’t spend all your time tinkering, fixing, and making. Enjoy the fresh air, your friends and family, and the beautiful autumn leaves. It will be winter before you know it!
