There is one activity that many Aussies like to partake in, and that is camping, there are a lot of happy campers in Australia and that’s no surprise. The numerous camping grounds and wild areas of the outback are reason enough to go out and see nature in all its glory, but some times you just want to lay back and relax while being surrounded by nature. There are many ways that one can go camping, you could go on foot and haul everything that you need with you which is the most difficult and dedicated way to camp, or you could always go the easy route and go by way of transportation. Cars, SUV’s or the infamous family cute can take you to your desired camping destination with no problems, granted you have the proper wheels and driving system in place.
Beginners into this activity should always go for the easier and more relaxing method before they even try to go about it with no external machines to help them since you’ll be losing out on all the comforts that a vehicle brings with it. There are many creature comforts such as electricity, cooling, a warm place to sleep in case the surrounding area doesn’t suit you and a lot more. The most important part of bringing a vehicle is safety, if you suddenly have an accident or get injured in some way you could hop in grab a medkit and patch yourself up or have someone else dress your wounds, which will give you enough time to drive back to a hospital.
The preparations for the trip is also important since you’ll need supplies that are proportionate to the amount of time you’ll be staying in the woods. Bringing along food and water supplies and keeping yourself and your companions well fed and watered properly for the duration of your trip. You’re going to need some way to store the food and liquids to cool them over time, ensuring that they don’t spoild during the trip by storing them inside ice box coolers. There are two ways to cool food the ice box coolers or a nearby cold stream which really isn’t possible with food since you’ll still need to put it in a container before you stick it in the water. If you’re properly prepared then you’ll have a fun and safe camping trip which will hopefully turn into a frequent enough occurance that you can start doing some real hiking and survivalist exercises.
