When you are setting your tent up for the first time without knowing what to do, it’s going to be hard. This could possibly happen – you might get all so excited and pack your camping gear but you haven’t done one thing, which is to research how to set up a tent. Aside from knowing how to set up your tent, do you know what your camping location is like? Is it rocky? Is it near the lake, or the mountain? These are the type of questions you need to have in mind. All these factors can contribute to the success of your camping experience.
Some first time campers actually set their tent up at home. Treat this activity as a house construction inspection or frame inspection. This is a good idea because you, as the camper, would know how hard or easy it would be to do this process. At this stage, you can already estimate how long it would take you to set it up and settle down when you are in the campsite already. List the steps down or have a checklist if you work better that way. Better yet, list the instructions down for backup, you will never know when you will need it.
Another thing to consider is the type of ground where your tent will be placed. Again, like with frame inspections Melbourne, checking the surface of a house project is a must to ensure stable and solid grounds. So in this case, you have think, “Is the ground high enough?”
We don’t mean that you must camp in the mountains, but you have to make sure that the spot is elevated in some way to avoid floods when it rains. Yes, you wouldn’t want to sleep on a soaked up sleeping bag would you?
Check the place or research about it. When you check it personally, you’ll how if you have to get rid of branches or some kind of a debris. Is the place under a huge tree that bears fruits? Or a pine tree? Sometimes, it’s dangerous to have your tent under trees because you’ll never know when a fruit would fall off and hit your tent and startle you in the middle of the night. Remember, this is where you’ll be sleeping for the night and your goal is to make this adventure as safe and as comfortable as possible.
These simple steps could make a difference in your camping activity – it will contribute to having a safe and fun experience.
