Newbie Fun Camper Basics For Camping Quickly And Easily
By Sam Phillips

Roughing it wilderness camp style:

In the article which is first in this series, "Fun Camping Basics For Newbie Campers Quickly And Easily" we mentioned several things to bring. If you really want to do it right, even before you leave home get a notepad and pen.

Write down the least absolute things you must have but remember.

If you are walking any distance at all, you won't be able to carry much. So strip the list to bare bones.
Learn to use a few things while camping. First time campers tend to over do packing.

TIP: After the first camping trip you'll know much more what to bring and what to leave at home.

One absolute you cannot do without is Commercial Bear Pepper Spray.
Carry 2 cans of the freshest up to date type you can find. Learn how to use it extremely well before you go camping and also make or buy a pouch to wear on your belt to carry it snuggly but removable easily.

Or perhaps you ladies or men may prefer to carry it in a shoulder holster pouch. Just make sure it's snug but easy to remove and get to. Never carry it in backpack. If you need it, you'll want immediate ability to get to it. This can literally save your life.

Lazy style RV Camping:

This is the easy way to camp but there are a few drawbacks such as no pets allowed many times in parking areas. There is sometimes a pretty large charge for camping and someplaces require you stay more than one night.

Some times, depending on state and location, you may have problems finding a parking area unless you reserve 6 months to a year ahead.

There are places that have no hook up, water, nor electricity at all and no bathrooms. So be sure to call the place you desire to go and get complete information first including cost. I do not like to mention this but...

There are places that will try to rip you off especially if they have a good ideal you're a newbie and new at all this. Please take what I'm telling you as only a preventive in case you do run across these problems.

Camping, whatever style you choose is the greatest fun and exciting adventure in the world. Don't be afraid to go, just take precautions until you learn the ropes a bit better.

Oh, one more thing on RV's. They are extremely handy to have certain times of the year as they'll save you lots of money since motels, hotels, bed and breakfast can cost a fortune.

Choose Biking!

Biking is not for everyone of course but if you are used to riding rough terrain, up and down hills and slopes, and around the sides of mountains, you'll have the time of your life. There are a few disadvantages, like flats and knowing how to fix them.

If you don't want to invest in a good seat, you'll pay the price the hard way sometimes out in the middle of no where.

A good quality seat can be worth its weight in gold. Ask any biker who travels on his much of the time. Also a good quality bike pays for itself over and over. Just be sure you're well used to biking before over doing it.

While you're trying to make your mind up as a newbie what kind of camping you want to try out, here are some suggestions if you will allow me.

Being almost 60 and having camped in all kinds of situations there's been some on hands training that maybe you won't have to go through. As previously mentioned, much depends on your comfort zone.

Also, if you're going solo or as a family makes all the difference in the world.

One more point!

Recommend that you never go alone out into the wilderness but that you try to take at least one or two good trustworthy friends with you.

There is safety in numbers. There might be times when you run into an outlaw, and I mean this literally. Several in a group will cause them to avoid you perhaps. Women are not always safe but with numbers it can tip the scales.

Again, I'm not trying to scare you just want you to be safe. That's why it's much better to have at least 3 or 4 together.

Roughing it, RV it, or biking it all can be loads of fun and a world of adventures. As a newbie you'll learn, but learn from others expert camping status.

Make learning easy by riding on the learning curve of others who have been there. Won't be long until you'll have people calling you the expert and you'll teach them camping basics.
