Make sure you know which plants are poisonous. These plants don’t come with a sign that says “Warning: poisonous,” so you need to know how to distinguish them from normal plants. You can learn about poisonous plants by reading a book or Googling “poisonous plants.” This can help you to avoid the wrong plants.
Don’t waste flashlight batteries. Flashlights often get turned on by accident when you are driving to your destination. Put the batteries backwards into the flashlight. You’ll have the batteries but you won’t have to worry about turning your flashlight on by accident.
Review the medical coverage that you have. You may need to purchase additional coverage if you will be camping in another state. It is even more critical if you are camping outside of your country. Make sure you have prepared yourself, just in case of an accident. Be sure to pack plenty of water, drinks and food in the camping supplies. If bears are common in the area of your camp, make sure to store any food away from your sleeping area. If it is safe to do so, burn garbage so that bears do not follow the smell of food to your campsite.
Take along things to do while you are in the wild. Entertain yourself by taking cards and fishing poles. If you are bringing children on your trip, you should bring a few more entertainment supplies than you think you’ll need.
