Outdoor Tips

Hiking Safety Tips and Tricks
  • Place your heaviest items in the middle of your backpack, near your back.
  • If lightening strikes, head to low spots away from trees and water. Sit on a sleeping bag or backpack to insulate yourself from the ground.
  • Always pack a signaling device, like a whistle or mirror, in case of emergencies.
  • Warm cold feet by swinging your leg back and forth quickly to rush blood to your toes.
  • If a blister develops, cut an adhesive bandage into a donut shape and place it around the blister to provide a buffer for the wound.
  • Several light, loose fitting layers of clothing are more effective at holding heat than one heavy one.
  • Always carry enough water. Per day, one person will need at least 3 quarts of drinking water.
  • Always carry Potable Aqua Water Purification Tablets in your pack in case of an emergency.
  • Elevate your feet and legs when you take a break to reduce swelling and help prevent aches and pains in your feet.
Safety Tips
  • Check the weather forecast for the area before you leave and pack accordingly.
  • Tell someone at home where you’ll be and when you plan to be back.
  • Always check your first aid kit before each trip. Make sure you aren’t missing components, and make sure none of the components have expired.
  • Consider bringing a headlamp instead of a flashlight so you can keep your hands free in an emergency.
  • Try to drink 3 – 5 quarts of water a day when camping – especially in high altitudes. It will help prevent dehydration and altitude sickness, which can cause headaches and nausea.
Tips for Camping with Kids
  • Teach children to stand by a nearby tree and stay put if they are lost. This is the easiest way to find them.
  • Children over 4 can carry some survival items with them including a whistle around their neck. Three blows on a whistle is the standard signal for “I’m lost”.
  • Pack each day of your children’s clothing in individual zip lock or grocery bags. That way they can just grab a bag with a full outfit in it, and put their dirty clothes into the bag to avoid mixing things up in the suitcase.
  • Make sure each child has a flashlight. That prevents fighting over the flashlight, and makes them easy to find at night.
  • Always plan where to meet if the family gets separated.
RV Camping Tips & Tricks
  • Put moth balls near the propane lines of your water heater and refrigerator to deter spiders.
  • Place dryer sheets in cupboards, drawers, closets, storage compartments, etc, before closing up your RV for storage. It will not only help eliminate that musty smell upon re-opening, but also help prevent rodents from making a winter home there.
  • You can also place trays of charcoal around your RV before closing it up. This will help to absorb that musty smell upon re-opening as well.
  • Always keep a bag of quarters on hand for unexpected things like parking meters, coin-operated showers, laundry, tolls, etc.
  • Get a carbon monoxide detector and change the batteries regularly. It is an easy thing to forget.
  • Don’t forget to change the oil in your generator.
  • Call to check RV size restrictions at campgrounds before you arrive. This is especially important at state & national parks, and at older private campgrounds.
  • Put screen wire in your rubber bumper plugs to prevent bees from nesting.
  • Permanently mount levels on the front corners of your camper so you don’t have to dig out the level every time you adjust.
  • Keep a file in your RV containing maps, brochures, reservation information, and anything else you might need for your trip.
