When it comes to outdoor camping
, the first thing many people think of is what equipment they should buy. In fact, camping equipment is only a part of outdoor camping. We also need to have the awareness of safety and environmental protection and abide by the code of ethics of outdoor people.
1. Camping equipment
Since we are going to prepare for outdoor camping, tents, sleeping bags, moisture-proof pads, etc. are essential. Headlights, sanitary supplies, wipes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, compressed buckets, etc. that can be used in the camp are necessary. Since we are going to camping for picnic, gas tanks, stoves
, pots, tableware
, etc. are also indispensable.
As for other equipment, such as mountaineering shoes, assault jackets, assault pants, mountaineering sticks, snow covers, etc., they are very important outdoors, but they are not necessary for camping. After all, we are going camping, not exploration. You just need to drive a car, take all your camping equipment, find a camping site, or grassland, or a small river, and then set up camp and bury a pot for cooking. You don't have to dress up as a donkey friend at all. But you can wear one because it is windproof, rainproof and warm. These can still be used outdoors.
2. Lighting equipment
Since it's camping, you should consider staying overnight in the field. Lighting equipment is necessary. You can prepare a headlamp or a professional camping lamp. I introduced some common outdoor camping lighting equipment before. Those who are interested can find it in the previous chapter. Lighting is very important. In case of any accident at night, it won't be dark. Some people will lose their sense of security without lighting at night. In addition, the lighting of the mobile phone is too limited, and it is not recommended to use it outdoors.
3. Safety matters
For the first time camping, it's best to have an old donkey. Camping in some places needs to be judged by experience. You should judge and find a suitable place for camping. Some novices camp for the first time and put their tents on the clean river beach lawn. Although the gurgling sound of water can be heard when they sleep at night, it is also very dangerous. If there is a rainstorm in the upstream, the river water in the downstream will rise and inundate the tents. What's more, flash floods will occur. In addition, in order to avoid the rainstorm, some people put their tents under the cliff, which is also undesirable, because there is a possibility of collapse at any time. It is also not advisable to put the tent under the highland or tree in rainy days. It is easy to be hit by lightning.
If it's summer camping, you should carefully clean the camp before camping. Don't put the tent near the snake hole, or press the snake hole with the tent carelessly. After setting up the camp, you should sprinkle snake repellent powder around the camp. If your shoes, tableware and kettle are all outside the tent, you must check them the next morning to avoid snakes and insects.
4. Water source safety
When you go camping, you should carry the fresh water you drink. If the camp is close to the river, you can take the water locally. It is recommended that you carry a bucket. In addition, if the water is taken from the outdoor river, you must boil it for disinfection and sterilization. Don't see that the water flowing down the cliff is spring water. You should first pick it up by hand to see if there are small insects in the water. Sometimes the water flowing out of the mountains is unreliable. You need to fully understand that some water flows upstream of various animal bodies.
5. Food safety
As for food, we must carry it by ourselves, even native locals are no exception. Although there are many wild ingredients in the field, we don't know whether it is poisonous. Wild vegetables, wild fruits and mushrooms should not be eaten easily. Once poisoned in the field, it is difficult to see a doctor in time. Now there are abundant biological species. It is difficult for ordinary people to judge whether these plants are poisonous. Some plants will fish in troubled waters. For example, wild celery and poisonous celery are easy to be confused. If you are not a wild child who stays in the mountains for a long time, don't try.
6. Environmental protection
There is also the need to protect the environment. Camping will inevitably produce a lot of garbage, and some people will take engineers to shovel large-scale construction. My personal suggestion is not to destroy every plant and tree in the camp, so as to experience the original nature. Don't pick beautiful wild flowers when you see them. Once you pick them, the flower may die in an hour, If you don't pick, you can enjoy it during camping, and so can those who come back.
In addition, when camping, try to carry a garbage bag and take away the garbage generated by camping with the car. I think this is the cultivation that a camper must have. As an outdoor lover, we don't care about others. Just do it well. Don't think it's cool to litter casually.
