Camping Adventure – Great for Weekend Getaway
According to Wikipedia, adventure camping is a form of camping by people who race during the day (possibly adventure racing or mountain biking) and camp in a minimalist way at night. They might use basic camping equipment such as a micro-camping stove, sleeping bag and bivouac shelter.
Well, we would like to add that adventure camping doesn’t have to be related to a sport. The adventure could also be related to your destination goal and imagination.
So, where to go?
The perfect destination for camping should be one of your favorite destinations just a few kilometers away in a “wilder setting”. A tent, a few friends, some beer and barbecue is all you need to make great memories. Just don’t forget to bring your camera to capture those special moments!
And don’t think that camping or hiking trips are only good for your physical health. They’re also great for your mental and emotional well-being. When you raise your levels of oxygen, serotonin and melatonin — which happens when you partake in outdoor physical activities — your stress levels will automatically decrease. Plus, it’s difficult to be upset when you’re partaking in an enjoyable activity. It’s one of the best things we can do for our bodies, our minds and our souls.
A camping adventure should definitely be a bucket list item of every adventurous man and woman and done at least once in a lifetime.
But don’t forget to control your fire and to take a flashlight with you!
And, yes for spoiled individuals, there is also something known as “glamping” ie. luxury camping adventure – ohh! The most famous glamping locations are Todos Santos Eco Adventures resort in Baja, Mexico; Dunton River Camp in the San Juan Mountains, Colorado, and Serengeti & Silverbacks touring in East Africa.
So, what are you waiting for? Go camping, NOW!
