Camping in general is one of the most interesting experiences one can go through. It is a great outdoor activity that can be done with family and friends, or even both. However, camping doesn’t only have to happen in the wilderness, another great alternative is to camp at the beach. This is a great way for you to enjoy nature and relax with the added bonus of being close to the beach. The preparation process for camping on a campground or the beach is similar; however if you are someone that is camping for the first time, then here are some tips on how to prepare for it;
Camping vehicle and gear- this is vital because you first need to have a practical vehicle and appropriate gear before you can prepare for the rest of the trip. The first element you need to get ready is transportation. The ultimate vehicle to have for camping is a Ute. This will allow you to carry a load of good on the back and even use as a make-do tent. Some vehicles have canopies made for them such as a Nissan Patrol Ute canopy.
Canvas Ute covers can not only act as a good place to store all the gears you are bound to be carrying but also a great alternative to pitching up tents on the sand. Depending on how large the camping groups you can decide on whether or not everyone would pitch tents, sleep under the canopy or both. In addition to the vehicle and tent/canopy you will also need extra blankets, sleeping bags, air mattresses and pump, spare batteries, flashlights and also a first aid kit. A first aid kit essentially needs to carry all the medical supplies to treat any minor wounds or injuries. If you do not have a good idea about the essentials, then you could refer from the internet for the basic requirements.
Moreover, a camping trip requires you to pack cooking utensils and gear. You must first make a plan on what food you plan on preparing and see how practical it would be to make it during a camping trip. The simplest items could be hot dogs, sandwiches, marshmallows and other easy to use food. However, if you plan on cooking a bit more elaborately, you would then need to pack a stove, either propane or otherwise, a propene bottle if required, matches and eating essentials such as plates, forks and knives. Last but not the least; make sure that you go to a safe and secure beach that allows over-night staying. If you are not sure of anything, never hesitate to reach out to officials and clear out any doubts as it is always best to be safe than sorry.
