A wonderful way to invest in your familiesí treasure trove of memories is by spending time inrepparttar great outdoors. Camping trips can be an excellent tradition that your family will look forward to and in time, look back upon with fond memories.

Whether you plan to camp atrepparttar 144867 same place every year or seek out new places doesnít matter as camping is always filled with new adventures. Your family might have a favorite place you go to every year mixed with a new spot you select together for another weekend or extended holiday duringrepparttar 144868 year. There are so many national parks to explore; your options really are quite limitless.

Camping doesnít have to be an overly expensive expenditure. Again this all depends on how youíll be camping. Camping in a tent carries a completely different dynamic than camping in a fully equipped camper. Camping in a tent is also relatively inexpensive. Perhapsrepparttar 144869 camper is something youíll decide to invest in after a few years of tent camping, then again there are some who prefer to only go tent camping. Thereís something to be said aboutrepparttar 144870 rustic quality of sleeping in a tent, you can hike to far off remote spots where you couldnít get to with a camper in tow.

Regardless of how youíll be camping youíll want to haverepparttar 144871 proper camping gear and accessories. First off you want to haverepparttar 144872 best tent and sleeping bags you can possibly afford. As your tent will be your home away from home for your trip and your sleeping bag will keep you warm and covered for those long nights underrepparttar 144873 stars (there are tents available that have mesh roofs for star gazing, of coarse if it starts to rain, you can just cover it up with your tent fly), youíll want to be sure that both these items keep you appropriately covered so to speak.

Next youíll want to have proper camp accessories; a trustworthy camp stove, a lantern, flashlights, a first aid kit, tarp, cooking and eating utensils, a little axe (for chopping firewood, also doubles as a hammer for hammering in tent pegs), some rope (for clothes lines and securing tarp), and cooler. Along with your sleeping bag youíll want to remember comfy pillows (unless your backpacking then you might want a convenient inflatable pillow) and very importantly a good sleep pad. An uncomfortable sleep experience on hard ground may steer you off tent camping altogether, so come prepared, a good sleeping pad is worth its weight in gold.
