Things to Bring When Camping in the Heat

By Stuart Yalethorpe

Beat the heat when camping.

Camping without the proper equipment isn't the best idea.

Those that have already learned the lesson will tell you

this, but why go through the pain yourself?

Check out the weather

If you know that you're going to be heading to a warmer

camping site, then it's time to investigate the weather

conditions and what kinds of temperatures you can expect.

Many places are warmer in particular times of the year, so

you may want to avoid such months.

Needless to add, no amount of research will prepare you if

the weather takes an out of the ordinary turn. However, do

plan, in as far as possible, for worst-case scenarios.

Water-The Camper's best friend.

Don't'tcompromise on the quantity of water that you carry,

as many greenhorns tend to do. The benefits of carrying

enough water far outweigh the inconvenience of lugging the

extra weight.

And that's a fact!

You want to bring at least a gallon of water per person per

day that you will be camping. Yes, this will be heavy, but

it's a lot heavier to carry someone to safety should they

get dehydrated.

Carry a reasonable supply of electrolyte salts with you.

These salts come in powder form, which can be dissolved in

the water you are carrying. Or carry sports drinks that

contain electrolytes. Your body needs to regularly replenish

these essential salts in hot, humid conditions.

Mmm! Tastes good too!

Eating smart

While you may not feel like eating in the heat, you need to

balance your liquids with food. This helps to keep your

body in balance. The human body is a delicate system of

electrolytes that can fall out of balance easily in extreme

weather conditions.

Nibble on something every time you take a swig of water. A

couple of nuts or pretzels will suffice. A salty or sugary

snack is best.

The right gear

Keep you head protected from the sun with a hat or visor.

Try and wear light colored clothes and apply sunscreen on

parts of your body that are bare.

While the heat might feel bad, the heat with a sunburn feels

even worse.

Make sure that you can bring first aid equipment as well

as a way to signal for help if you need a rescue.

Two's company

Of course, camping with someone else is best, especially in

more extreme weather conditions.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
