When it comes to outdoor camping, many people only think of what equipment to bring? In fact, outdoor camping is not just about preparing equipment, but also requiring safety and environmental awareness and outdoor ethics to be followed.

1. Practical equipment principle: Since you go camping, tents, sleeping bags and floor mats are indispensable. Headlights and sanitary products such as toilet paper, wet tissue paper, towels, toothbrushes and even a compressed bucket are all necessary. Since camping, you will need a picnic, and gas tanks, stoves, simple aluminum pots and rice bowls are also indispensable.

As for other equipment such as hiking boots, waterproof jackets, trekking poles, and snow jackets, although they are important preparations for trekking, they are not necessarily necessary equipment for camping, because you are going to camp, not to explore. You can Drive the car to a grass dam or a forest clearing to camp. You don’t need to dress up as a snow mountain climber or cave explorer.

Of course, since it’s camping, you have to spend the night. Lighting equipment such as headlights and camp lights are definitely needed. Otherwise, if your eyes are darkened at night, it is not only not fun, but also various safety hazards.

2. Camping environment selection: For the first time camping, it is best to have experienced old donkeys to guide you on how to choose a safe and comfortable camp. For example, when many new donkeys travel for the first time, they often choose to tie the tent on the clean river beach lawn. Although it is a romantic thing to listen to the gurgling water view room, it is very dangerous! In fact, in recent years, there have been many tragedies in China where camping tents were washed away by sudden flash floods. In addition, it is not advisable to tie the tent under the cliff in order to avoid wind and rain, as this may cause a landslide after the rain and cause casualties. It is also undesirable to tie the tent on a raised high ground in isolation, because thunderstorms may be struck by lightning.

In addition, spray sulphur powder or insecticides around the summer camp to prevent poisonous insects. The shoes and other containers placed around the tent in the early morning should also be carefully checked to prevent insects and snakes from hiding in the cold.

3. Food and water: When you go out camping, you should bring your own drinking water as much as possible. You must choose a clean water source to boil or even boil it for drinking after precipitation. Don't see the springs flowing down the cliffs and think that it must be the clean water source of nature, maybe you Climbing up the cliff, you can see animal dung and even sewage from the vegetable plot cultivated by the mountain people by the water!

Don't pick wild vegetables and wild fruits that you are not sure about, let alone wild mushrooms. You must know that even native mountain people who pick wild mushrooms sometimes make mistakes. There is no chance to remedy this mistake. Wild celery also requires considerable experience, especially wild celery is most easily confused with poisonous celery. Don't try it easily if you are not sure.

4. Protect the environment: Try to avoid digging soil and shoveling grass in camping sites, and try not to use hoes and other tools to destroy the original state of nature. Don't just pick the wild flowers happily. Please leave them for later generations to enjoy together, because those wild flowers are public resources and not owned by you alone.
