Going camping is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of life, but it can sometimes be quite a daunting task.
Being stripped of all your creature comforts is not nice for anyone, even the most seasoned of tent-dwellers.
Today, however, a number of technologies are helping to bridge the gap between the campsite and home, and they are making everything about being close to nature far less stressful.
Here are four gadgets that are taking the stress out of camping and if you’re camping with kids don’t forget to check out this Family camping essential guide.
1. Solar Powered Fairy Lights
If you want to avoid the hassle of remembering to bring batteries on your camping trip, then simply pack some solar powered fairy lights instead.
They will charge themselves up throughout the day and then provide your camping area with light at night.
They are eco-eco-friendly and economical, too, which means nothing will be impacted by their usage (just, whatever you do, don’t forget to bring them home with you so as to avoid them becoming a potential strangling hazard for wildlife).
2. Backpacking Gps
There’s nothing more stressful about camping than getting lost in the wilderness. At the very least, it’s a massive inconvenience that could see you miss out on camp supper and the chance to roast marshmallows around the fire — at its worst, getting lost could put you in serious danger.
When lost in the wilderness, especially when you are alone, you could face any number of problems, such as a drop in the temperature or the prospect of angry wildlife.
For this reason, knowing how to get back to your campsite at all times is paramount.
Fortunately, GPS technology makes that possible. By having one of these mapping gadgets on your person when you find yourself lost, you’ll find it incredibly easy to find your way back to your makeshift home.
3. Water Filter System
Having a healthy supply of drinkable water is essential if you want to stay safe and stress-free on your next outdoors experience.
By bringing a water filter system along with you on your trip, you’ll have just that. Such a device will allow you to clean water, meaning you’d never have to worry about drinking anything that is unsafe or bad for your health.
4. Pressure Shower
When you spend time outdoors, it’s nice to know that showers are available. You can ensure that this is the case at all times if you bring a portable pressure shower along with you.
All you’d have to do is fill the shower bag with water, apply pressure to the foot pump, and, as if by magic, you’d have high-pressured water that you can use to clean yourself. If you leave it in the sun, this water will be warm.
The four camping gadgets listed above are really helping campers feel at home in nature, so make sure to pack them and bring them along when you next head outdoors.
