I’ve been in the USA for a while now, exploring the different places and checking out new sites each month. You might be wondering what type of travel and stay I think is best, and that’s easy. It’s camping. Camping gives you the type of freedom that no other holiday can. You can stay wherever you want, slip into a comfy sleeping bag with a liner and wake up in gorgeous destinations without paying a fortune for a hotel room. If you’re brave enough you can live off the land. Or, take a quick hike down to the nearest store. There’s nothing quite like it and for a blogger like me, it’s the perfect travel choice. Here are my tips for planning your own perfect camping trip.
Rent A Trailer
I know when you say camping, automatically you think about packing a tent and carrying it around on your back. But I would actually opt for a different type of camping. I’d buy a trailer. By doing this, you’ll get all the luxury of an RV without the hefty asking price. You’ll have all the facilities you need to let you feel at home while you’re halfway up a mountain. You do need to get a good one though so have a look online at some of the best trailers available to buy.
Packing The Right Gear
You never know what opportunities might be ahead once you get out and explore the open road. That’s why it’s important that you pack for every occasion. First, don’t forget to pack clothes for different types of weather and climates. You’ve got a lot of space behind you in your trailer so you should be using it. You might also want to think about investing in a portable power generator. This will ensure you have the power you need, even if you’re not on a registered campsite. I know that many people love the idea of getting into extreme sports when they’re travelling. If you think you’ll be heading to a place where you’ll get to try out rock climbing, pack the safety gear. At the very least you should ensure you have a med kit in your trailer. Last but certainly not least you should take a camera. You’ve seen the amazing shots I’ve taken on my travels. If you want to do the same, you need the equipment.
Prepping The Car
You will need to check out whether or not your car is ready to travel. Remember you might be travelling a great distance so it’s a good idea to get a new set of tires. If you like, you can also get your vehicle fully checked out by a mechanic. The last thing you want is to get halfway down the road and have it break down. Getting a full checkup of your vehicle can put your mind at ease.
Writing A List
While I love the freedom of camping, sometimes it’s a good idea to write a list of things you want to do or see. That way, you can guarantee you that get at least some of what you planned to accomplish. Once you get out on the road, it’s easy to lose your way and you’ll be surprised where you could end up.
