Headed into the Woods? You’ll Need Great Camping Supplies

December 1, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

You can “rough it” in the woods, while still being comfortable. The key is to bring the right camping supplies. They can allow you to take in nature, without turning into a victim of the elements.

Camping tents can be as basic or as fancy as you want. There are family tents, if you’re travelling with a big group. Or, there are dome tents that are made for two people. And, the right camping tents can hold their own against virtually all types of weather. In fact, there are even tents that protect you from the elements, while also keeping you cool on a hot summer night!

And, of course, you’ll need to eat – meaning you’ll need a portable stove, a lighter, and extra cans of fuel. But, you don’t need to chow on canned pork and beans. You can eat like a gourmet out in the woods! Chances are, camping stoves have come a long way since you last went camping. Now, they come with much better accessories. And, if you want to get really fancy, you can get a portable grill, a tiny roaster, a portable oven, and even a special camping wok!

But it’s not just about tents and stoves. There are other camping supplies that can make your trip to the woods an enjoyable one. You can get just about anything you want for your camping trip – like special pots, pans, and utensils, sleeping bags, air mattresses, chairs, tables, lanterns, flashlights, axes, binoculars, GPS systems, two-way radios, heaters, and even sanitation equipment! That way, you get all the comforts of home while you enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of nature.

Phuket, Thailand

If you can afford to miss out on snow this year, travel to the sunny coasts of Thailand. While everyone else is keeping warm in front of the fireplace, sipping hot choco and roasting mallows, you’re skinny-dipping in any of Thailand’s glorious beaches, soaking up some healthy sun, and ultimately experiencing life. It’s indeed a wonderful way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life that you’re used to. This holiday season, don’t get worked up in the kitchen. Instead, indulge in sumptuous seasonal fruits and feast of Thailand’s native delicacies.

African Safari

While reindeers and polar bears fill the heads of little ones back home, you’re seeing gorgeous wild animals live. Exotic safaris have so much more to offer than just animals, mind you. You will experience a vacation-of-a-lifetime with the most perfect mountains, streams, grasslands, lakes and rivers as your backdrop. While you may not encounter the astounding annual wildebeest caravan, which happens sometime during the summer, you can still witness how wild African animals really are in real life.

Tysfjord, Norway

While everybody else feel like running away from water this winter season, you’re actually going snorkeling and wildlife watching in Europe! The Christmas season is the perfect time to swim with amazing orcas, or killer whales in Norway, because they arrive during the fourth quarter of the year, and stay until January.
