Winter Booting Tips

Thursday, September 17, 2009

If you choose to have a fire at your river camp, please do so sensibly.

The gathering of driftwood for fires is only allowed from first October to April 30, and driftwood is the only wood that may be gathered and burned in the Ground. Driftwood should only be gathered close to the water in areas where the river is still actively depositing it. Wood found far from the water's edge may be significant or from past flood events, and should not be gathered. Driftwood is found near the strand line at the water's border and has been clearly worked by the river. So, please stay close to the water when collecting.

In several parts of the country, the collection of dead, dry and down wood is encouraged. This is prohibited in some of the areas, so be careful of about camp site information. This wood is important for the stabilization of delicate sand dunes and the ecological endurance of the area. At popular camps, dead and down wood is often used to restore impacted areas; so it may be protecting susceptible resources. Never collect dead, dry and down wood and don't tear down or cut living trees, even if they are in outdoors.

Prepare for a Backpacking

Friday, September 11, 2009

Preparing for a backpacking camping journey involves a tiny more preparation than usual campground camping. Read on for more tips on getting ready for a backpacking camping tour.

  • Invest in a good backpacking frame
  • Pack small and light
  • Plan your route
If you are a more experienced backpacker, it is still an excellent idea to plan your route in front of time, instead of wandering off on the trails on your own. Having a planned route will help you avoid any hazardous geographic features you are not prepared for just like rivers or gully and will help rescuers find you, should you become missing.
  • Practice makes perfect
Once you have assembled all your gear, apply unpacking and repacking it all several times before you start out on your trip. Your first night on the trails is not the best time to discover that it is not so easy to fit your tent back into the small bag it came in. Also, it is important to get used to the feel of the rucksack on your shoulders before you get on on your trip. Try walking around the block a few times with your backpack on and loaded to be sure it is adjusted accurately to your body.

How to build a campfire

How to build Campfire

How to build Campfire

A campfire is very important when staying in the great outdoors. Here are some tips and techniques to build a campfire, including safety defense. Camping is fun, but it is not without its challenges. If you came prepared, it will be much easier, but if you have forgotten some little important items for your trip, you could be in some sort of trouble. It is not a hard to build a campfire if you have all the right components such as dry wood, small limbs, paper and matches or a lighter. But when one or more of these items are missing, building a fire can be very difficult.

Before starting a fire, ensure you follow certain safety rules. First thing is never throw gasoline or other flammable fluids on a fire. The fire can blow outwards, burning skin and catching clothes on fire. Second thing is clear a space of about six feet, all the way around the planned fire spot to prevent the fire accident, once the fire started, from ending. If it is a grassy area, remove the grass and build the fire on the dirt. And also be sure to completely quench any fire or hot coals before leaving from that area.

There are certain ways that you can assemble the sticks and other fire catching materials which will help to get the flames going quicker. A good way to begin a fire is to stack firewood or small, dry sticks in a teepee type arrangement. Place paper inside the teepee, and then light the paper with a match box or lighter. The teepee set-up allows air to flow under and between the firewood, starting the fire more quickly.

Another method to get a fire going well is to place two woods, about a foot apart, on the ground. Lay smaller sticks on top of the two woods, about three to four inches apart. Place paper or pieces of dry bark between the two large logs, under the small sticks. As the fire begins, start laying more sticks in a cross pattern on top of the other sticks which is burning.

Sometimes there is no paper to help start the fire. In such situation, you can gather dry leaves and small pieces of sticks to help start the fire. Another thing that helps is to pull out any loose threads from clothing. Thread catches fire quickly, and so does pure cotton fabric. Cotton balls and wool will also catch fire rapidly.
