Camping Tip Of The Day

Storing Camping Equipment

Your camping is a big investment, so here's a camping equipment tip that helps you take care when you store your equipment. Never put away dirty equipment. The dirt can grate against fabric or nylon, eventually rubbing a hole in your tent, tarp, or sleeping bag. Rinse off tents, rain flies, tarps, and other nylon items and let them dry before you pack them away. Hand wash sleeping bags, or at least shake them out and let them air before you carefully store them in their storage bags. Better yet, store it flat so the insulation inside the bag doesn't break down over time Wash and dry all your kitchen camping equipment before you pack it away, and inspect all buckles, webbing, ropes, and stakes before they go back in storage. If you clean and care for your camping equipment every time you use it, it will ensure your camping equipment enjoys and long and happy life.For more Camping tips, visit

Buying A Gift For A Camping Enthusiast

Most visitors to this camping blog know of at least one outdoor enthusiast, other than themselves. And, well, each person has a birthday. So, put it together, and that means you’ll have to decide what gift to get them.

The best camping gift is one given from the heart. One where you strongly feel the recipient will adore it. Well, beyond that, there are 5 steps to ensuring your camping gift recipient is left smiling.

Today, I’ll discuss one tactic, to get the ball rolling. Over the next few days I’ll release a few more tips for your perusal.

First of all, conduct some research. Ugh! Research. Oh, no, nothing overly formal. This might be the toughest aspect. Ah, but, get the hard stuff over with first, eh?

Figure out what they want, yet do so without letting them know what your motivation is. Why, after all, the best gift is a wanted item, yet unexpectedly received.

One clue is to tune in to what they’re saying. When you hear them complain about something, or wish they had an “xyz”, you have been given the clue on a platter. Or, maybe they had a bad experience. Maybe their car broke down on a camping trip. Darn battery, yes, that was the culprit. Why, there you go: Buy them a portable battery charger! And, best of all, it’s something they will appreciate, and probably need, yet they will be mega surprised when they get it.

Stay tuned for a few more camping gift buying tips which I’ll roll out to you over the next few days!
