    Tent Camping Trip: Good Times With The Family!

    So here we are, this is our campsite! We’re not too far away from where my dad lives actually. Ok, we’re in his backyard. “Say something profound” “It’s a beautiful day in the woods” okay well said! Okay so this does deserve a bit of an explanation. We recently found out that one of our children has become severely allergic to cats. My wife and I decided that it would be easier on everybody if we just turn this into a little camping trip and stay outside, But to our hosts credit they were willing to have their cat stay elsewhere and sterilize their entire house. I also wanted a…

    He Caught a Really Big Fish! Camping Day 4

    – I caught my first fish. – [Jacob] Whoa! – Oh no, oh no! (Jacob screaming) (Chris grunting) (laughing) Oh no! (upbeat music) Good morning, everyone. You probably can’t tell, but it is not sunrise yet. I know it looks bright. The sun has not come up yet. 5:00 a.m. and this guy kept Mommy and me up all night. I decided to come out here and make a fire ’cause it’s really cold and get the day started. (Duncan gurgling) (soft cheery music) All right, we got a fire going, and Catherine woke up. Good morning, Catherine. – Hello. – [Chris] You’re the first kid awake, except for this…

    How to Purify Water for Drinking | Camping

    So, figuring out how you’re going to get fresh, drinkable water when you’re camping is a pretty big concern. If you’re primitive camping, meaning that you’re hiking in a couple of miles from where you parked your car, then you’re probably not going to be able to carry all the water that you need in with you. I did used to do that when I first started camping, just because it seemed like the most comfortable and safest way to go. I had a couple of five-gallon jugs and I would fill them before I left. It meant taking a lot of breaks when we were hiking in, but at…

    How to Set Up Your Campsite | Camping

    Camping poses a lot of challenges. It’s not like you can go into your kitchen and turn on the stove and boil some water, so everything takes a little bit longer, everything’s a little bit more inconvenient, but it’s super fun. One of the fun things about camping is figuring out crafty solutions to all these little inconveniences. So, when you’re setting up your tent and your campsite, you want to think about how to set it up to make it as easy on you as possible. You kind of need to think about six areas in your campsite; there’s where you’re going to put your tent, there’s where you’re…

    How to Pick a Tent | Camping

    Tents are the thing, I think, that you should probably plan to spend the most money on and invest in something pretty good. When I say good, I mean something that is durable and lightweight. You can expect to spend between $100 and $500, roughly. And what you’re looking for is something that suits you and the amount of people you plan to put in your tent. I was really schooled on the differences of tents when I went on a big, huge group camping trip to Asitic Island. There were these super small, little tents that looked like space ships that would fit just one person and their sleeping…

    How to Protect Yourself from Ticks | Camping

    Unlike bears and snakes, which you probably won’t encounter on most of your camping trips, you will come across ticks. Ticks are a serious issue. They carry Lyme disease or they can carry Lyme disease so you want to be prepared for if you do get bitten by a tick and you also want to be prepared and take precautions to make sure you don’t get bitten by a tick. Ticks are spiders. They’re not bugs. They’re actually arachnids and they come in different sizes, or there are different-sized ticks. Deer ticks, which are the ones that can carry Lyme disease are actually usually the size of a pinhead or…

    How to Pick a Campsite | Camping

    One of my favorite parts of camping is picking the campsite. It’s like apartment hunting, but it’s free. It’s super fun. If you’re camping in a campground, then you have to camp where the sites are designated. If you’re primitive camping, there’s just some basic rules you should follow. First, you should really try to pick a site that’s been used before, and you can tell because there’s probably some charred ground. You don’t want to litter the forest or the state park with a bunch of campsites, so you really want to camp where other people have camped. A log, like this one, or a fire pit, those are…
