Welcome everyone and a special thanks to all new subscribers.
Camping is a great recreational activity enjoyed by many of us and is described in different ways depending on your personal choice.
A campsite could be out in a forest or the bush alongside a river or creek.
You can wake up to the sound of the birds singing, a beautiful sunrise, go for early fish, go for a nature walk, relax with a good book, watch the sunset, sit around the campfire and watch the stars shining, look for wildlife by torchlight and go to bed exhausted.
Holiday parks are great if you like the convenience of all the amenities, they usually have a pool, a camp kitchen, groceries & fuel, kids play area sometimes they will have mini golf, tennis court etc.
The variety of ways to go camping is endless here are a few ideas.
Some like to go hiking and survive with what they have in their backpack.
Touring on bicycles, motorcycles sometimes in remote areas travelling long distances each day.
Canoeing or boating down a river carrying your belongings in the canoe/boat and camping overnight alongside the river.
The most popular would travelling in your own car, anything from ‘roughing it’ with basic tent and equipment in the bush etc. up to the large 3 or 4 room tents with all the camping gadgets available on a powered site in a holiday park.
Camping trailers, caravans and RV/motor homes are other alternatives to the tent if you find the tenting part of camping does not appeal, the range of options is enormous, this usually is decided by how much you want to pay and what suits your style of camping and travelling.
Happy Camping Everyone.
