Tips for Camping While Pregnant

Renting Rvs before Buying Helps You Choose the Best Model

Posted by on Jul 17, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Renting Rvs before Buying Helps You Choose the Best Model

One way to help make up your mind about which type of RV to buy is to rent each of the styles you’re considering. Then spend a weekend or longer in each one. If you haven’t done much camping in trailers or other types of campers, you can learn a great deal by making various rental vehicles your home away from home for a short time. The Rental Strategy Expect to dedicate some time to this project. A good strategy might involve starting with the most luxurious of the campers you’re considering and then downsizing with each subsequent rental. That way, you’ll discover which features you can live without and which are must-have options. For instance, you may decide that you prefer a camper you can detach from the main vehicle and leave at a campground don’t need a separate bedroom in back but do need a toilet and shower need very little indoor cooking space greatly prefer a certain floor plan in a trailer must be able to get to the camper interior from the driving area Important Considerations Before you commit to buy, learn whether you cannot bring certain types of RVs to some places you want to camp. Some campgrounds don’t permit larger trailers or motor homes. Some allow the bigger rigs but charge higher parking rates for those spaces. Also learn insurance rates for the various campers. In general, premiums will be higher for larger ones.  When you contact businesses that sell RVs, ask whether they apply any percentage of rental fees to a future purchase. Some do. The Importance of Not Skimping As long as you can afford the features you want, it’s important not to skimp. You’ll likely spend many hours of traveling and camping in this RV, and you don’t want to continually regret not choosing the one with options you really liked. An Enjoyable Adventure By renting different RV models, you’ll learn which features are most important and how much room you need. You’ll find out whether certain types of campers are too big or unwieldy for the types of trips you like to take. You’ll discover whether you feel too crowded in certain campers when you have friends or relatives along. You’ll probably learn that there are features you never imagined would be really important, but that you absolutely love. Make the rental process an enjoyable adventure that leads you to the camper with the best features for your particular preferences. Try contacting a business like Camping World of Ocala to get...

Reasons Why Layering With Merino Wool Is Good When Camping

Posted by on Jun 22, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Reasons Why Layering With Merino Wool Is Good When Camping

Staying warm when camping is essential during cold weather, so choosing the right insulating clothing is vital to your comfort and health. The best way to ensure you’ll stay warm enough to enjoy your camping trip is to dress in layers. The four main types of layers are base layer, mid layer, insulating layer and outerwear. Since the base layer is the foundation for all the other layers, it should be given careful consideration. Merino wool makes a good base layer, mid layer and insulating layer. These layers should then be covered with waterproof outerwear. There are several reasons why merino wool is a choice for a base layer for tops and bottoms. As a Base Layer, Merino Wool is Comfortable and Odor Resistant The base layer is the clothing that is worn next to the skin, so the material chosen must be comfortable next to the skin. Although many people find regular wool to be too irritating to be worn as a base layer, merino wool is different. It’s very soft, lightweight and it wicks moisture away from the skin. It’s also constructed of thin fibers that doesn’t retain odors easily, so odors are less of a concern if you have to wear your base layer for more than one day between washing during your camping trip. As a Mid Layer Merino Wool is Warm But Doesn’t Overheat Merino wool is so versatile that it can be worn during all but the hottest days. This lightweight fabric can keep you warm during cold months, yet keep you cool during the warmer months because it doesn’t overheat. During colder weather, wear a base layer with a heavier weather as a mid layer. When camping during warmer months, you may not need a base layer during the day, but you can wear a lightweight pullover or vest that can be easily removed, when needed. As an Insulating Layer Merino Wool is Effective Even When Wet Although wool takes longer to dry than synthetic fabrics, it retains its ability to keep you warm, even when wet. Because of this, you may want to carry enough insulating layers to rotate in case one gets wet. This will allow enough time for the wet item to dry. This renewable, biodegradable fabric is good for people with allergies to man-made materials. Merino wool is also machine washable and fire resistant; not bad qualities to have during the rigors of a camping trip. To learn more about merino wool, visit a website...
