5 Most Common Camping Pet Peeves
There’s nothing quite like taking time off to relax and spend time outdoors. Nature certainly has a way to help us loosen up, recharge batteries and regain focus. Whether you carefully planned your trip, or just decided to go with the spur of the moment, you’re probably really looking forward to this trip. Sometimes, things don’t go quite as planned. Here are 5 things that can annoy even the most laid-back camper:
Camping trips are meant to be a time to clear your head, rest and relax, and rowdy neighbors can very easily ruin that. We all want to have a good time, but some take advantage of their time outdoors and get very extreme. Loud, late-night partying happening next door, is not exactly what you signed up for. If everyone practiced camping etiquette, we would all be happy campers.
Lack of Permits
You might be really looking forward to your camping trip, but first, you need a camping permit. When going to get it and the place is packed, you know it’s going to be a tough day, especially when they’re applying the first come, first serve policy. You might need to reschedule.
You checked the weather forecast in advance before planning your camping trip, like any good camper would, and it promised great sunny weather. So, why is it raining? We’ve all been there. Regardless of what the weather forecast tells you, always prepare yourself to adjust to whatever weather condition nature decides to throw at you.
Your trip is off to a great start. The weather is nice and the drive to the campsite was relaxing, but then, you arrive at a dirty campsite. Maybe it was all too good to be true. The Leave No Trace principles are something every camper should live by.
Nothing can throw you off your camping game more than realizing you forgot important camping items back home. Whether it’s clothing, camping gear, food, or anything else, failing to pack those items can have an impact on how enjoyable your trip will be. Before you leave the house, make sure you check all of your camping essentials off your packing list.
