Hiking Checklist: Essential Things


3 Best Campsites and Glampsites In The Philippines

“Day Hiking Checklist” is essential for adventure time. If you are a hiking lover at heart, then this checklist will help you to have a smooth trip for sure.

Camping may sound very exciting and thrilling altogether, but without proper planning and arrangement, it can turn out to be a mess. As the urban advantages are not generally available in a remote camping area, you must pack and sort carefully before the trip. Firstly you must pack proper camping gear from home. If you are taking your kids to the camping, then you must take extra care while packing. Give the kids separate color duffels for each of them where they can put their toys and other kinds of stuff. If possible, let them do their packing under proper supervision. In this way, they will also remember the details about their preparation.

If you are a frequent camper, then keep a separate camp box beforehand and fill it with all the essential things for camping. In the case of car camping, thoroughly accessorize your car as well. It would help if you never packed the trip emergencies at the last moment. Pack strategically and keep emergency light, first aid, insecticide, dry foods, etc. on the top of your bag.

Day Hiking Checklist: The Complete Menu

Always carry your water with you and don’t drink from an unknown source while camping. Never keep your food unattended, as wild animals can attack your tent following food scent. Collect your food scraps and dump them away from your tent. Stay positive and flexible. You will surely not get all the urban facilities while camping. But to be in sync with nature, you can not always expect to go by your daily routine. Use flipflops inside the tent, and after the sunset, put a hanging light outside the tent. It will keep the wild animals away and help your campmates to identify campsite from afar. Also, carry navigation tools with you to be on the right track.

Camping is all about living alongside nature, some trekking, some playful cooking, some peaceful walks, etc. But you have to be flexible and organized throughout to enjoy its beauty.

Some Other Tips

Hygiene is another essential thing to be careful while camping. Because dysentery or stomach infection is the last thing, you want to happen with you at this time. So these are some things you need to maintain. Always wash your hands: make it a habit to wash your hands after using toilets. In maximum cases, the bathrooms or bio-toilets are in stock with fellow campers. So there’s a high chance of infectious diseases to spread.  Carry your hand wash sachets. If not possible, use hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes. Never eat any spoiled food and remember food often gets spoiled in storage or cooler. Don’t eat raw or spoiled meat under any substances. Rely on vegetables in this case. Also, try not to carry dairy products like condensed milk, soy milk, butter, cheese, etc. they tend to go wrong often. Try cooking at a distance from your tent so that the odor doesn’t attract animals to your tent
