What are the main points of camping?
The selection and construction of campsites is a major issue related to the rest of all personnel. The following matters must be paid attention to:
▲Close to the water: You must choose *near the water source for camping and rest, such as *near streams, lakes, and rivers. However, the camp should not be anchored on a river beach or beside a stream. Once it rains or the upstream reservoir releases water, flash floods, etc., it will be life-threatening. Especially in the rainy season and flash flood-prone areas.
▲ Leeward: Leeward should be considered when camping in the wild, especially in some valleys and river beaches, you should choose a place leeward to camp. Also pay attention to the direction of the tent door not to face the wind. Leeward is not only for camping, but also for fire.
▲Far cliff: You can’t put the camp under the cliff when you set up camp. Once there is a strong wind on the mountain, it may blow off stones and other objects, causing danger.
▲Near the village: Camp * If there is any emergency near the village, you can ask the villagers for help. This is even more important when there is no firewood, vegetables, food, etc. Near the village is also a shortcut, which is convenient for the movement and transfer of the team.
▲Shady: If it is a camp that needs to live for more than two days, in good weather, you should choose a shady place to camp, such as under the big tree and the north of the mountain, it is best to face the sun instead of the sunset sun . In this way, if you rest during the day, the tent will not be too hot and stuffy.
▲Lightning protection: In the rainy season or areas with heavy thunder and lightning, the camp must not be anchored on high ground, under high trees or relatively isolated flat ground. That way it is easy to attract lightning strikes.
▲Construction of campsite: After the campsite is selected, the campsite must be built. Especially for a certain scale of wild campsites, the construction of the entire campsite is particularly important. It is divided into the following steps:
▲Leveling the site: Clean up the selected tent area, remove stones, shrubs and other things that are easy to pierce the tent. Uneven areas can be filled with soil or grass.
