Learn Essential Skills
Camping with friends means there’s usually someone that’s an expert in certain fields. However, going solo camping means it’s all down to us. Learning skills such as how to make a fire, pitch a tent, navigate, and set up a camp will be essential to make sure we have a fun yet safe trip.
You got it. Solo camping means there’s no one else to pick up the heavy bags or help you o the final struggle to make it to the camp spot. It might be time to take a few of those things out of your bag and pack just the essentials if you want to avoid overloading yourself with too many things.
Sure, getting in touch with Mother Nature might sound like a tempting idea, but solo camping might not be the best idea if you’ve never been before. It might be best to head on a practice camp with your friends before you go it alone to make sure that you know what you’re in for before you arrive.
Have An Emergency Kit
Heading solo camping can be a great way to enjoy yourself at your own pace. However, it’s crucial to have an emergency kit just in case something happens. As well as having a backup cell phone and first aid kit, it’s also essential to know how to use everything in the first aid kit in case there’s no one else around.
Nature can be the perfect place to lose your thoughts and clear your mind, but bringing a book or a pack of cards might not be a bad idea. Although hiking can fill your days, it might be nice to have something to keep you entertained when you feel like taking in the warmth of the campfire.
It might sound scary at first, but learning everything you need to know about solo camping should help to take away the fear and give us the perfect way to get back in touch with Mother Nature.
