    Camping Sleeping Bags & Pads : Sleeping Pads in Camping

    I’m going to talk about sleeping pads and a lot of people don’t think they’re that important but they kind of are. If you’re out there getting some sleep at night, you can really mess your time on your vacation backpacking if you can’t get enough sleep because you’re not comfortable. Some people can go with a closed cell foam pad. The advantage of this is it’s light but the down side, it’s not quite as cushy. Depends on if you’re a real heavy sleeper and it’s easy for you to get to sleep this is definitely a nice way to go. Another down side, it’s not very compact, so…

    Stealth Camping at Tunnel Bridges / Washouts – Bicycle Road trip Tour Vlog #12

    Bicycle Touring Road Trip Eastbound Across the Southwest USA – Vlog #12 Tunnel and Bridge Stealth Camping and Tips there were many times during my cross country travel that I couldn’t find any trees or bushes to stealth camp at… eventually I figured out that I could go down around the base of the tunnel bridges, or washouts some call them, and pitch a shelter which was usually my tarp or military poncho… as you can see, I could camp in these locations undetected from passers by on the road above… this first location was a pretty good sized bridge that made for easy bicycle stealth camping. There was a…

    Camping Sleeping Bags & Pads : Mummy Sleeping Bags

    Here’s a mummy bag. This is probably the most common backpacking bag. It’s thermally efficient, often they’re light. You can get all different weights in this so of course the more you pay the lighter it will be, but this one you’ll notice is tapered at the foot so there is not a lot of space to heat up before the bag starts doing it’s job. A zipper runs along the length of it. You’ve got venting options from the bottom. Some people if they get hot they’ll stick their feet out the bottom there. At the other end of the bag you have a hood. The hood is nice…

    Camping Sleeping Bags & Pads : Types of Self-Inflating Mattresses

    Now I’m going to talk a little bit about choosing self inflating mattresses. So you’ve got to look at the specs on the packaging and the outfitter will help you with this. Looking at these two pads, they look different but they are actually kind of the same pad. They are both twenty inches by seventy two inches, they’re a half an inch thick, and here?s the difference, two pounds, one pound eight ounce. With this one you can knock half a pound off and also it takes up less room in your pack. Now you pay more for a pad this light but this is the type of hobby…

    Camping Gear : Camping Gear Insect Repellent

Depending on which one that you like a basically with the Permethrin you hang your cloths up you spray it till its damp you let it dry and the clothing is actually repellent. For up to six washings.
