Go Camping In Autumn - Useful Tips And Instructions

Many campers tend to camp in the summer, however I would like to recommend doing so in autumn. If you love camping just as much as I do, then you will understand why! The temperatures during the day are cool enough to wear hiking gear, but warm enough to still enjoy. The nights are a little colder, but it just makes sitting by the campfire all the more enjoyable (think of those yummy roasted marshmallows). The fall foliage on the trees is extremely beautiful. It's the perfect combination for a memorable camping trip.

Useful instructions:
1 - Pack essentials you will need for the trip such as basic toiletries (shampoo, soap, toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrush, towel, deodorant, small mirror, comb, laundry bag). Bring a compass, flashlight with extra batteries, camera along with memory cards, map of places where you are going, empty plastic bags for litter, folding chairs, sleeping bag and tent. Have food and water, and necessary clothing (some cold and hot weather clothes, underwear, extra socks and hiking boots). Don’t forget any medication you are taking, a first aid kit and a sting kit if you are allergic to bees or snakes. Bring sunscreen and sunglasses as well.

2 - Pack as light as possible. Bring everything you need, but don’t exaggerate! The additional weight will be hard to carry…

3 - Build a fire, roast marshmallows and tell scary ghost stories as you stay warm by the fire. However make sure you select a camping location that doesn't have any restrictions against building fires. Check beforehand with the National Park or campground.

4 - Enjoy the beautifully rich colors on leaves in the woods. Everywhere you walk, you'll see trees turning red, orange and yellow. Don’t forget to take some memorable photos.

5 - Go all natural. Don't bring your radio, miniature TV, etc. Take pleasure in what the outdoors has to offer. Experience and enjoy your camping trip as much as you can.

6 – Be sure to clean up and dispose of all your trash when you leave the campsite. You should NEVER leave anything behind that nature didn't put there!

I just picked up camping and am going on my third trip this weekend. Word to the wise: wear high socks. Last week I wandered into some sort of poisonous something and my feet have been itching since. I found cheap men's calf socks it!-
