Everything You Need to Know When Topping the Wilderness

Do you love the great outdoors? Do you enjoy getting out there, surrounded by trees and hiking trails? Are you interested in camping but not sure what to bring with you on your trip? If so, this article is for you. We’ll discuss everything from what to pack when going camping to how best to cook a meal over an open fire.

This blog post will take a look at some of the most important things that every camper should have in their backpack before they head out into the wilderness!

Tent – Of course, you’ll need a place to sleep. Most tents are lightweight and easy to carry on the trail

Sleeping Bag – This will keep you warm throughout the night.

Cooking Utensils – Campers should make sure they have pots with lids, plates or bowls for food prep, cups, utensil set, and a can opener.

Matches/Lighter – You’ll need these to start a fire for cooking or keeping warm.

First Aid kit – This is essential in case of an emergency.

Food and Water – Make sure you pack enough food and water for your trip! Most people recommend at least one gallon of water per person per day.

Clothing – Dress in layers to account for changing temperatures.

Sunscreen, Bug Spray, and Hats – Protect yourself from the sun and bugs while camping!

Backpack – You’ll need somewhere to carry all of your supplies.

Now that we’ve gone over some of the essentials, let’s take a closer look at cooking over an open fire.

Cooking Over An Open Fire

There are several different ways you can cook your food if you decide to use a campfire instead of using another method like propane or charcoal grills.

Campfires aren’t for everyone, however! If there is any chance that rain will fall while you’re out camping, you’ll want to be sure that your fire is completely out before heading home.

If you’re not too concerned about the possibility of getting caught in a rainstorm and would like to cook over an open fire, check out these tips for cooking food without electricity:

  • If possible, use cast iron or enameled pans
  • Make sure your pans have lids
  • Bring along cooking utensils that are easy to use over an open flame, like tongs.

There’s nothing better than a relaxing picnic after a long day of hiking!

Lessons I Learned While Camping: A Fresh Face with the Bare Essentials

I had the opportunity to go on a camping trip this past weekend and I learned some new tricks for staying groomed and refreshed without any of my regular beauty products. Why did I need to be so fresh and clean? Well, because we were going camping!

The first thing you should do before heading out is pack your essentials: toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, contact lens solution (if needed), makeup remover wipes or lotion with salicylic acid in it (for breakouts), face wash. These are all things that will help get rid of excess dirt and bacteria from your skin which will keep you feeling fresher than ever!

Use a dry shampoo when you need to. Sometimes, I don’t have the time or energy in the morning for my usual shower routine and that’s okay! You can quickly spray some dry shampoo on your roots before heading out! The best part is that it not only gets rid of any excess dirt from your scalp but also adds volume and texture to your hair.

Why not use a natural dry shampoo? It’s even better for the environment and is easy on sensitive skin! I love using baking soda with cornstarch because it absorbs all of the oil from my roots without leaving behind any residue or white streaks in my hair. You can make your own by mixing them together, but I like to buy the pre-made kind so it’s less work for me.

Another great way to keep yourself feeling refreshed while camping is by using essential oils! I love lavender because it has a calming scent and helps relax the mind. You can either add a few drops of oil to your bathwater or put them in a diffuser. This will help you feel relaxed and at home, even while camping.

I hope that some of these tips work for you! I know if I ever go on another camping trip again, it’ll be much easier to stay clean without having to worry about using any products or running water with my beauty routine!

The Dog Days of Summer

The dog days of summer are here and the mountainside air is getting crisp and cool. This makes it a perfect time to curl up with your pup and enjoy some quality time together. Whether you’re running a mountain lodge or just taking care of your canine companion, there’s lots to do this season – we’ve got some ideas for both!

First and foremost, make sure your dog is always well-hydrated in the summer heat. Give them plenty of fresh water to drink and keep an eye on their panting – if they’re excessively panting, it might be time for a break in the shade. also be careful that they don’t overheat while playing outdoors; bring them inside if they start to show any signs of heatstroke.

In addition, don’t forget the sunscreen! Dogs have thin fur and delicate skin that can easily burn in the sun. Apply a canine-specific sunscreen (available at most pet stores) to their nose, ears, and other exposed areas before going outside.

Another important thing to keep in mind is ticks. Ticks are common in the summer and can carry dangerous diseases like Lyme disease. Inspect your dog for ticks after every walk and remove them immediately if you find any.

Finally, keep your pup entertained with plenty of summer activities! Take them on long walks through the woods, visit a nearby lake for a swim, or head to the dog park for a romp with other pups.
