Camping for Beginners 1

Camping, doing or not doing?

The idea of camping is a very attractive, if not, you would not be reading this article, true? The direct contact and very quiet with Mother Nature, the smell of fresh grass, the trees and all its creatures, to survive with the resources that you brought with you… and have you thought about a reverse of the medal? If it comes to rain and turn this green paradise into a pool of mud, if the insects have decided to share with you your tent (or worse your sleeping bag!), not to mention the fact that there is a BATHROOM with bath salts relaxing or breakfast buffet! Do not forget that, for camping, you need the specific material of camping, which means a good initial investment. So, before excited and buy everything and anything, think well in what you are getting yourself into… or have the equipment loaned to someone for their first experience.

What is your style of camping?

Already decided that you are going? Great! But now there’s another decision to make: what type of camping will you do? One of the great advantages of camping is the freedom to choose your destination which may include, or not, various natural landscapes: from the mountains to the sea, to parks filled with other fans of this type of natural tourism, or even a jungle for the more experienced in this matter! Although different, all have one thing in common: they are a retreat from the bustle of the cities, and this attests to yourself when you lie down in the company of the stars, and waking to the sound of silence… or of the birds! If you do not know, is to know that you can camp in three different ways:

  • Camping light – style camping easier, traditional and popular does not exist, being that this practice-in campsites where, after a prior reservation, you move up to there car and equipped the accuracy. However, a reservation is not always necessary, or may leave without a destination and stop at the first or in the tenth park in that spot, after all this is the spirit of the campers! The only drawback is that the park can be full. As a general rule, you will have your own parking place and space to pitch the tent. The amount charged is per night and is calculated based on the number of cars, people, tents, and electricity. Currently, many camping sites offer a variety of extra services, in addition to the sanitary facilities, may include laundry facilities, a supermarket, a games room and swimming pool, among others. Needless to say, this kind of vacations are very economical, whether for a couple, a group of friends or a large family. Ah! And is excellent for beginners (practicing!), as well as for families, due to its excellent conditions and levels of security.
  • Wild camping – as the name itself indicates, it is pitch the tent in an isolated area, such as a forest or a jungle, and (about)live solely with what he took with him, or with what Mother Nature has to offer. Not advisable to this style of camping to beginners, unless they are accompanied by campers to the more experienced.
  • Camping on wheels if the camp is to walk literally with the house to the back, this kind of camping is done with a home on four wheels, which can be one of two ways: with a caravan (a small “house” that is tied to the car) or an auto-caravan (a house with a car included!). Available in various sizes, this type of camping can be considered “luxury”, since it brings together many of the comforts of any home – multiple bedrooms, living room, kitchen and TOILET! The prices are high and normally, those who purchase this kind of transport is because it makes camping whenever she can. In develop, both the caravans such as the auto-caravans can be rented and will be always a excellent experience within the style of vacation that is camping.
