Emergency Food To Bring To The Wilderness
by Barry Jaie
A little forethought and organization will payoff in a great memorable adventure for that next outdoors excursion you may have planned. When you go camping you will need a camping lantern , camping stove and a camping cot as well as a flash light.
That sounds pretty good eh! Can you smell that fresh air go on fill your lungs with it and oh! what's that lovely smell, somebody's cooking up a treat it always smells better outdoors don't you think.
Lets see first you will need some type of shelter a plastic trap 8 by 10 will make a good tent some rope 50 ft will be lots the ? inch nylon rope will work. Tie the rope between two trees and place the tarp over the rope. Stake down each side of the tarp with screw driver numbers need 6 to 8 I buy them at flea markets and garage sales. To make the most of the camping experience, it’s important to consider the weather before packing up the camper or travel trailer. Cycling is an excellent and convenient way to explore the national park or area where you are staying. Bringing along bicycles allows you to just get up and go wherever you are.
Campers will also bring a sleeping bag and various accessories like torches, portable stoves, knives, food, etc. Some prefer to make a camp fire but this must be done very carefully and is prohibited at some sites.
Where to go is the big decision. Some are lucky enough to live near national parks. These are national parks because they are very special areas. Don’t have a tent, or even a backyard for that matter? That’s no reason not to campout. Just spread out your sleeping bags, or even just some blanket in the living room. Turn off the TV, radio and video games. If you have a fireplace, build a fire. Otherwise, order some pizza and pop some popcorn and you can even make smores in the microwave.
Emergency Food to Bring in the Wilderness
Experienced campers know that it is always necessary to take some emergency food along on any trip. This will come in handy should the group get lost; and has already finished the existing supplies before rescuers are able to arrive and get the people out of harms way. Why is bringing emergency food in the wilderness important even if the campers can hunt for it instead? This is because not everyone can successfully kill an animal especially if the only piece of equipment available is a survival knife.
But what is considered to be emergency food? Is it an extra slab of steak that is cooked before going on the trip? The answer is no.
These items are either a bar of chocolate or some canned goods since these will not spoil; unlike other items that will do so after being kept in a sealed container for more than a few days. Chocolate is important because its ingredients are able to keep a person warm in very cold conditions. It also provides a sudden jolt of energy because of the sugar concentration.
Once your kids (and you) recover from the shock of having no television or Internet access, you'll all have an eye-opening experience. Whether you have a tight budget or believe sky’s the limit, you will find many camping supplies that range from as little as $20.00 all the way up to the hundreds.
It’s important when traveling to bring along the proper clothing. Always include some rain and windwear, a fleece jacket is also a good idea. A first aid kit and plenty of drinking water should always be available. Of course if you are planning on doing any outdoor activities in the winter you will need more clothing etc. More on Camping Outdoor.
The most common material that you can choose when you go camping consists of the technologies that will permit the water to pass through the material yet it doesn’t allow the water to go into it. The National Recreation Reservation Service? (NRRS?) - From this one site, you can make reservations for the USDA Forest Service, Army Corps of Engineers, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Reclamation outdoor recreation facilities and activities. With over 45,000 sites at over 1,700 locations, any camper will find a great place to relax and unwind.
The thought of camping alone can be very intimidating, especially if you’re a woman. Ideally, it is not something recommended to women new to camping. Be sure the lantern you buy is weather proof. If you are camping in colder weather the gas type of lanterns would be your best choice because not only do they give of a bright light they also give off a fair amount of heat. Never use the gas lanterns in the tent.
