Planning to take a holiday in the great outdoors

Posted on August 21, 2009 by dorisch

Planning to take a holiday in the great outdoors is a wonderful thing to do as you get a chance to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You’re able to breathe the fresh air and bond with nature. Preparation is key to enjoying your camping experience since there will usually be no opportunity to buy necessities at your campsite. Packing the right clothing for your trip is essential to enjoying to vacation.

Before setting off on your trip, check the climate of your camping area. Even if it’s only a few hours away, a higher elevation can have severely colder weather. Also check the weather report and plan accordingly. Plan for rain even if the weather report doesn’t predict it; better safe than sorry, according to an outdoor camping expert friend who sells classroom desks.

If you’re expecting warm weather then choose clothing that is lightweight and allows your skin to breathe and sweat to evaporate. You should only wear shorts where there is no tall vegetation since you may come into contact with poisonous plants, insects and brush that can cause scratches and cuts.
