We tend to be creatures of habit, we go about our everyday lives not changing a thing. A great way to change our routine is to plan a weekend camping trip. What a great way to enjoy a couple of days, getting out of the city to enjoy the outdoors and explore what nature has to offer. However, you will need the right kind of camping gear to make your trip a little easier. First you will need a tent for shelter and security, while you sleep. It is best to test your tent before heading out, by setting it up in the backyard, to make sure there are no holes and mildew, while it has been stored away.

When you finally get to where you chose to camp, you will want to set-up your tent as soon as you get there, so you can relax and enjoy the wonders of nature. You could also, take a walk to really get the best of outdoor camping and experience all that nature has to offer. The fresh air, the trees and the surrounding mountains, or there may even be a nearby lake.

It is important to get a good nights sleep camping outdoors. For you to sleep you will need some bedding and sleeping bags are a great choice for you to stay in the comfort of your room. We also have to eat well, to keep up our energy and strength. A camping stove is a good way for cooking great meals, just like you do at home. However, make sure to keep your food locked up to keep bugs and animals out. If you do not want to get caught in the dark you will need some lighting, flash lights or lanterns are a good source of light, if for some reason you need to get up in the night.

So to be more prepared for our next outdoor camping trip, it is best to have a list of camping equipment made out before hand. Also a good quality tent to make your trip a more pleasant one.
