20 Practical Camping Tips You Haven’t Seen Listed on BuzzFeed

As head of content & marketing at VITCHELO, I spend a lot of time monitoring what people talk about on the social media sphere.

Along with a short list of blogs and influencers, I keep up with daily with what people are sharing that can be of a lot of value to you.

One of my favorite blogs to follow along with is Explore The USA.

Using the hashtag #campingtips, the platform regularly shares some very insightful camping tips.

Since my job as Content Manager is to bring value to our audience, I know I would discover new gems from their Twitter feeds that are not listed on BuzzFeed.

And that I did!

Here are just a handful of their best camping tips along with those of other influencers and outdoor adventurers.

#1- Never dump or bury food scraps. Flies and animals will find it, and so will the next person to camp there.

#2- Black-bottomed pots and pans heat up quicker than shiny, reflective ones.

#3- If weight is not an issue, get cast iron pieces. A deep frying pan and a Dutch oven can cook 90 percent of camp food.

#4- Slightly polish the connecting joints of your tent poles with super-fine-grit wet sandpaper for an easier fit.

#5- Just buy a new tent? Practice setting it up once at home before you leave to ensure you aren’t missing any parts

#6- Organize all your goods before you set out on your #adventure! E.g: keep your sleeping goods together.

#7- In bear country, cook and eat at least 100 feet from your sleeping area. Nobody wants to be woken by a wear.

#8- Camp where the morning sun will strike your tent or trailer. It makes those chilly mornings a bit warmer.

#9- A head torch is a must. That way you can still keep both hands free to set the van up, even in the dark

#10- Although it feels warm at first, drinking alcohol just before bedtime actually robs you of body heat later.

Try this one with you are going winter camping.

# 11- Keep the next day’s clean socks and underwear inside the foot of your sleeping bag. They’ll be warm for the morning.

#12- Save your dryer lint! It makes a great fire starter. (But you already knew that)

#13- Never camp under a lonely tree

#14- You don’t need to go shopping! We have hot dogs and cereal,that’s breakfast lunch and dinner lmfao

#15- Seal the seams of your tent – you’ll have a drier night. Many tents come with a tube of sealer.

#16- Choose an inclined spot to set your tent and then sleep with your head uphill.
