How to find the perfect place to pitch your tent

A good night’s sleep can make or break a camping trip. This is why it is important to find the perfect place to pitch your tent before going to sleep. Once you decide on a campsite, make setting up your tent the first priority.

It’s much easier to find a good spot while it’s still daylight. Many factors go into the perfect spot, so it is important to look around and weigh your options before making the final decision. Flat ground

Arguably the most important factor when choosing a tent spot is how flat it is. It’s hard to get a good night’s sleep when you’re waking up in the middle of the night to readjust yourself on your sleeping pad. Normally pulling yourself out of the bottom of your tent is a surefire way to wake yourself up and cause you to lose valuable sleep time

Environmental benefits of camping

We camp because we love nature and the environment. And because we love it we want to protect the environment we find ourselves in. As campers, we learn to leave no trace and minimize our environmental impact so that we and future generations can continue to enjoy the outdoors.

What camping teaches you

Camping teaches us to be good stewards to the environment by reminding us of the beauty of the outdoors. If we leave a place trashed, it won’t be the same to come back to. When we camp, we will in some way impact the environment. This is why it is important to reduce our impact by following the leave no trace principles.

 

When camping you consume less water and electricity than at home. This is a reminder that you can use less electricity in your daily life and help reduce your carbon footprint. Without running water, you will naturally use less of it. Let this be a reminder to turn off the water when not using it at hom…

Camping in the snow how to get a good nights sleep

Camping in the snow

There’s a lot of people out there that have no idea that Australia even has any snow, the idea being that all of Australia is covered in a barely habitable stinking hot desert.

This is of course not the case as we are blessed with many different weather biomes, including snow.

For those of us that love to camp, we love to do it in a variety of environments so for us snow is no barrier to getting out and enjoying the great outdoors.

Camping is perfect for getting out amongst the snow and really seeing all of it, especially since you’re probably going to need to hike a great distance and if you’re only going to hike as far as you can go in half a day, then turn around and come back, you’re not going to see much.

Camping gives you the opportunity to s…
