You do not necessarily need to eat just franks and beans or hamburgers. Pack a box with herbs and spices, olive oil, brown sugar or whatever else you like. You can fix meals that have flavor even when you are "roughing" it. Avoid any wildlife you may come into contact with. Bears have become a fairly large problem with campers. In some parks they have been known to rip open the trunk of a car to gain access to food. Raccoons are also a big problem in many campgrounds. Not only are they smart and can gain access to your food supplies easily, but they can carry disease as well.

Before going camping for the first time, make sure you have done some research on tents, wildlife and food survival. It can make the difference between a great trip and a dangerous one. When you are heading out for that long awaited camping trip, don't forget to take along your cell phone.

You can even use it to bandage up injuries. Plan ahead and come prepared. While a sleeping bag is a necessity, you should bring extra blankets. They will provide you with extra warmth, should the temperatures plummet, as well as give you additional cushioning. It is a good idea to pitch your tent on a piece of land that is level. This will ensure you sleep better, which means you will have more energy for the next day. If you have to sleep on an incline, make sure that your head is tilted uphill. Waterproof matches should be added to your camping survival kit. Always store your matches in a container or packaging that is airtight. You also can create waterproof matches yourself by taking regular ones and dipping them in nail polish or paraffin. You can easily find something to hold them, perhaps a film canister or a medication bottle. People who are going camping would be wise to stay away from axes to do their chopping.

The additional tent will make it possible to get some "me" time while at the camp site. It also gives you additional storage to keep animals out of your supplies. Protect yourself from disease carrying ticks while on your camping trip. Always dress in light-colored clothing while in wooded areas so that ticks can be easily seen. Check your body frequently for ticks during the day. Use a tick repellant to discourage ticks and other biting insects. Tuck your pants into your socks for added protection.
