Bug Spray and Sunscreen Tips

Protecting yourself from pesky bugs and the sun’s harsh rays is crucial.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Apply insect repellent containing DEET to ward off mosquitoes and other biting insects.
  • Consider wearing light-colored clothing and covering exposed skin during peak mosquito activity.
  • Don’t forget to reapply sunscreen every few hours, especially if you’re swimming or sweating.
  • Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to shield your skin from harmful UV rays.

Fire Prevention Tips

When building a campfire, safety should be your top priority.

Here are a few fire prevention tips to keep in mind:

  • Choose a clear and open area away from overhanging branches, dry grass, or flammable materials.

  • Clear the ground around the fire pit from any debris or vegetation.

  • Keep a bucket of water or sand nearby for emergencies.

  • Never leave a campfire unattended, and ensure it is fully extinguished before leaving the site.

Camping Hacks

Sometimes, a few clever tricks can make your camping experience even better.

Here are some camping hacks that I’ve picked up along the way:

  • Use a headlamp attached to a clear water bottle to create a makeshift lantern.

  • Place a foam floor tile outside your tent to keep dirt from entering and create a comfortable sitting area.

  • Fill a plastic water jug and freeze it to use as a makeshift cooler for perishable foods.

  • Keep your matches in a waterproof container, such as a mason jar with a screw-on lid, to prevent them from getting wet.

  • Create a makeshift lantern by strapping a headlamp around a water jug. It will illuminate your campsite from within, providing a soft and ambient light.

With these camping tips from yours truly, Caddy Bear, you’ll be well-prepared to embark on your wilderness adventures.¬†Remember to prioritize fire safety, protect yourself from bugs and the sun, and utilize some of these handy camping hacks to enhance your experience.
