Camping is all about communing with nature and leaving the modern world behind – if only for a couple days. There are, however, some ingenious ways to incorporate just a touch of civilization with your camping trip to make it a bit more comfortable without turning your site into a glorified hotel. Use some of these tips and tricks next time you decide to hit the campground with your Raleigh NC RV rental.
This is part 1 in a 3-part series about some essentials that campers of any experience level shouldn’t visit the campground without packing.
Below are some quick tips to make your next camping experience as comfortable as possible from the Raleigh NC RV rental experts of AdventureQuest RV Rentals.
Fire Starters: Sitting around the fire, swapping stories and roasting marshmallows, is a quintessential part of the family camping trip. Unless you have a Boy Scout, Girl Scout, or outdoor enthusiast handy, getting a roaring fire going can be tricky. Here are just a few fire starters you can make on your own to bring with you to the campsite:
• Round, cotton pads dipped in melted wax (can make up to 30 for under 10 dollars)
• Twist up newspaper pages, fold them in half, and tie them up with twine (easy storage, no messy wax)
• Cut toilet paper rolls in half, fill with dryer lint (we all have some), and roll it all up with wax paper – you can twist the wax paper on either side and use it as a wick
Comfort: Comfort will be the least of your worries when safely inside your RV rental, but what about when you hit the trails for a leisurely hike? Always remember to pack comfortable hiking boots, plenty of water, and a reserve of some high-protein, energy boosting food like jerky or nuts if you plan on spending time in the wilderness. Sunglasses, sunscreen, and insect repellant may seem like pretty basic supplies, but you’ll be kicking yourself the entire camping trip if you forget these valuable assets.
You bring the supplies, and we’ll provide the premium Raleigh NC RV rental to make your next camping trip the most memorable yet. Contact AdventureQuest RV Rentals at (919) 848-8870 to reserve your RV today!
