How To Plan The Perfect Outdoor Escape

 During the COVID-19 pandemic, we've spent more time than ever before indoors. While this may have given you a chance to read more books or finally nail that banana bread recipe, it's also likely left you with a thirst for both travel & great outdoors. And, as we continue to fight the virus and restrictions ease, you may be able to get back to traveling sooner than you may think!

With that in mind, her are some top tips for planning the perfect outdoor escape!

  • Choose the right location. When planning a vacation in the 'great outdoors', you must find the perfect space to (literally) set up camp. Here, your location should be based on the kind of place you want to visit and your previous camping experience. For example, while experienced campers may be able to battle rugged terrain (and a bit of bad weather), there are plenty of camping locations for beginners out there for you to choose from.
  • Buy the right gear. One of the biggest mistakes that beginners make when they go camping for the first time is failing to bring the right equipment with them. For example, while you're unlikely to forget your tent, it's also important that you bring along safety tools with you, such as battery-powered torches. Thankfully, you can order these tools, and other useful pieces of equipment online from sites such as EcoGear FX so that they can be delivered directly to your door.
  • Practice putting your tent up first. While every make and model fo tent is slightly different, it's crucial that you know how to set up a tent before you reach your destination. One way in which you could achieve this goal is by setting up your tent in your garden ahead of time. While this may seem like a hassle, it's far better to arrive at your campsite with knowledge and insight than it is to struggle to put it together (especially if you're expecting some bad weather).
  • Be prepared for the weather. One of the best parts of a camping trip is having the choice to get up close and personal with nature. However, this also comes with an element of risk - especially when it comes to weather. For example, while the forecast may say to expect sun-filled skies on every day of your trip, it does not help to be prepared and pack a few waterproof coats in your backpack just in case it does rain. Being prepared for all eventualities means you'll be able to have fun come rain or shine.
  • Plan some fun activities. On a traditional vacation, you'll likely want to spend most of your time sunbathing or relaxing by the pool. However, while they are also incredibly relaxing, camping retreats also give you the chance to be a little more adventurous. For example, you could get your adrenaline pumping by taking a hot air balloon ride or participating in some outdoor activities such as hiking or white water rafting.
