Camping Alone: How to Make the Most Out of It
Tips for the Solo Camper
Organizing a group sometimes is very complicated. So, if your work schedule, gear lists, and time to coordinate with your friends and family is keeping you from getting outdoors and setting up a tent, consider the revolutionary idea of solo camping. It’s one of the best ways to truly admire nature!
Many people will wonder what the point of camping alone is. But if you’re up for the challenge, solo camping can highlight some parts of the wilderness mysteries you might otherwise miss in a larger group. Besides, when you are alone with only your thoughts and the landscape for company, you may get to experience and enjoy a feeling of deep inner peace, silence, and the tension of stressful work weeks can be released.
How to Enjoy a Solo Camping Trip Safely
- Keep any necessary medication and a complete first aid kit handy.
- Wear protective clothing.
- Use a saw instead of an ax or hatchet, and watch where you walk to avoid tripping over.
- When handling firewood, protect your hands with gloves.
- Properly secure your footwear.
- Avoid eating unknown plants and animals.
- Pack a little extra food and water.
- Make sure you are safe from poisonous creatures, large predators, sick or disturbed animals, and even human threats.
- Bring a map of the area and take the proper equipment.
- Keep an eye on the weather.
