There are cold days ahead, but still plenty of time to enjoy the great outdoors! With fall in full swing, and winter quickly approaching, many people are packing up and going home. However, September and October are gorgeous months to be out camping. The foliage lends a beautiful pop of color to photos, and there is nothing better than sipping hot chocolate in the crisp, Fall air. For those of you who are going to tough it out, here are some ways to keep warm this season.
1. Bundle Up!
Make sure to bring plenty of warm blankets and supplies. A favorite pastimes of many is wrapping up in a downy blanket, and watching the stars with some warm treats. If you like to curl up with a heated blanket with the window open for fresh air, you’ll love this idea! Flannel in particular is a material that is good for weathering the cold. It helps that it is currently very much in season, too. Nothing beats a nice, flannel fleece and thick socks on a cold day, after all!
2. Keep The Fire Alive
One of the best things about camping is the time spent with family and friends. So, take advantage of the cold! Keep the fire roaring all night long and huddle around it. This is a perfect time of year for stories about witches, ghosts, and ghouls. Play card games, roast hotdogs and marshmallows, stargaze; there are so many activities for people of all ages to enjoy! Combine that with the sweet smell of burning wood, and you have a perfect recipe for Fall themed fun.
3. Explore The World
They say that the best way to keep warm is to keep moving. So, get up and go! Take a hike, and enjoy the beauty of nature before Mother Nature takes her yearly slumber. Any place that you camp is bound to have several trails for your enjoyment. Pack a picnic and sip cider while you wander through the forest. This is, without a doubt, the most magical time of year. Enjoy this short season while it lasts!
4. Always Have Quality Equipment
You really have to make sure that you have durable equipment. The last thing anybody wants is to wake up in the middle of the night to a deflated air mattress! It’s cold, after all, and fumbling around with numb fingers is never fun. Worse yet, you don’t want to toss and turn and get up in the morning sore, and unrested. There are many options, but we think the LivBright sleeping pad outshines the competition! It’s a durable, lightweight option that offers all the benefits of an air mattress. Whether your sleep on your side, stomach, or back, the pad is thick enough to keep you off the ground. With all of the extra weight you’re carrying for a fall camping trip, this option keeps you packing light!
So, you are now ready to undertake a cozy, warm fall camping trip. Make sure you make a list, check it twice, and don’t forget your new LivBright sleeping pad!
