Sleep under the stars and get a little dirty
When the weather is pleasant, the smell of campfires and pine trees attract many people to camp in the woods and mountains. At the beginning of summer, the day becomes longer and longer, or maybe it becomes colder at night, and autumn when the leaves begin to change is the ideal time to go to the woods.
Sometimes there is nothing better than sitting by the fire and roasting marshmallows. If you need more persuasion, here are 10 reasons why you should consider packing a sleeping bag and heading to the wilderness - or a local campground.
1. You are closer to nature
When camping, you are most likely to be in a national or provincial park, wilderness or national forest. Campsites in these areas are places where you can get close to the most beautiful places on earth.
How about camping on a river in Maine or admiring Mount Whitney, the highest mountain in the continental United States, and camping not far from the blue waters of Crater Lake?
2. You are far away from technology
Most campsites do not have Wi-Fi or even cell phone signals, so you and your children can leave these technologies at home and get close contact with wildflowers, bugs, water pools and the Milky Way. If you need to keep in touch or open a map to plan your next journey, private campgrounds like KOA do have Wi-Fi.
3. You realize how little you can live with
My husband and I have traveled all over the world, but one of our best trips was a two-week trip to the Oregon Coast. We can put everything we need into the trunk of the car and realize that even a few things can make us happy-including planning. You can be a little bigger and camp in a 45-foot fifth round tent, or you can be simpler and set up a two-person tent.
4. Outdoor food tastes better
Ribs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, shortbread and toasted marshmallows-typical camping foods are some of the most delicious foods that taste better in fresh air. Cooking over an open flame or grill will give the burger a strong flavor, while making chocolate sandwiches on the stove at home is not very good.
5. Camping is affordable
Many families can save money by going camping in the forest when they lack money for vacation. Nowadays, you can buy camping equipment from many large stores for very little money, and the biggest expense is usually gas to campsites.
Stay away from private campsites and enter public national forests, which will be cheaper.
6. This is an opportunity to explore your own backyard
You can go to your own state park to make camping more affordable. Learn more about where you live by camping close to home. You can even attend a ranger talk or visit the park’s museum. Hiking on the local trails and going home before Sunday night.
7. This is a moment that makes you feel small and insignificant
Bring a star map of your area, or an app like star Walk, to explore the mysteries of the universe. You will realize that most problems are insignificant compared to the ones above your head. Some campsites and parks even have special night stargazing activities.
8. You will be scared by your panties
Without some scary stories, group camping trips are incomplete. Darkness, lack of civilization, and fear of spiders and bears will make you want to scream. Sites like "Ultimate Camp Resource" (Ultimate Camp Resource) have some quick and creepy stories to tell your tent buddies-all you need is a flashlight.
9. You can really be alone
If you are interested in backpacking, you can carry everything you need on your big backpacks and go to the wilderness. Whether you want to practice survival with some preparer equipment or just want to have some time for yourself, trekking or trekking will take you to places many people have never seen before.
10. Your friends will be inspired
Upload a few photos of your camping trip to the Grand Teton, Moab, or Great Smoky Mountains. Many people will hope that they have also been camping.
