Backpack, Sleeping Bag and Tent: Prerequisites For Survival
When you think of going for camping or mountaineering to some adventurous place, there are so many things you need to list down that you will require to survive during the days of adventure. Survival tools like instant food, pocket water filters, first aid kit, fire starters, pocket knife, backpacks, tents and many other items which merely depend on the kind of trip you are planning to go to. You must familiarize yourselves with the survival tips before you plan out one, so that you may not endanger your life during the trip.
Survival backpacks are very useful to stuff in all that you need during the trip. All the tools for safety and survival will easily fit in the backpacks and you need not carry too many bags for all that you wish to carry along. Usually these backpacks are custom-made and you can design them according to your usage. There are different panels in the bag for all the necessary items like first aid kits, water bottle, food, hygiene supplies, clothes, knives and other tools. Carrying a huge amount of water won’t be easy, so you can carry the minimum required quantity like a litre. This will easily fit in your bag and won’t make it heavier for you to carry. The survival backpacks need not be filled to the brim as this would make it difficult for you carry such a heavy bag all throughout the journey. Make sure whatever you carry must not be heavy like water bottle or food. You can have food packets that can be consumed without preparation like peanuts, wafers and biscuits. These things need no preparation and thus you can have them while moving without wasting time in cooking them. Also this will avoid the need of lighting fire and collecting apparatus for it.
Apart from backpack, another prerequisite for camping is tent and sleeping bag. Walking throughout the day on odd paths and uneven routes you need time to relax and accumulate some strength for the upcoming survival days. For that you need a well-ventilated sleeping bag, capable for covering your entire body from head to toe so as to prevent you from cold climatic conditions, if you are hiking in snowy region. They must also have easy grab-pull tabs to make you come out and get in with ease. There are over hundreds of models in which the sleeping bags are available according to the place and temperature you will be exposed to.
If you are not comfortable with sleeping bags, you may even carry tents which will also provide you with a comfortable sleep. Tents will keep you away from the malevolent weather, teasing bugs and other dangerous predatory animals. There are many poisonous bugs found in the stray regions and you must protect yourself from them so that you can have a healthy trip ahead. The tent you select must not add substantial weight to your backpack. They must light and so designed as would easily fit in the bag without any botheration on your shoulders.
So, whenever you think of going out for camping, make sure you have all the essentials in your backpack.
