(9/3) When I first started camping, I learned a lot of new things along the way. Unfortunately, not all of them were the best memories. I can laugh them off now, but I'm sure I was horrified with some of those embarrassing moments during my first few camping trips. But they were accommodating and had me learn a ton of new things. And I know
how nerve wracking it can get for new campers, which is why I show you some confessions of a beginner camper (myself) to help you know what to expect and what you can do to avoid blunders as much as possible.
Three Confessions of a Beginner Camper
Wondering what mistakes I went through during my first camping trips? Here are the top three hilarious ones:
Not Knowing Where to Do My Business
That's right; I didn't know where to do my toilet duties, which ended up with me getting a ton of bite marks from mosquitoes and other bugs from always peeing in the bushes! Fortunately, I found out about the best
portable toilets and invested in one, so I didn't have to worry about my privacy or itchy bite marks anymore. Always remember to do your business somewhere safe and bug-free, folks!
The problem with me was that I was too scared to begin camping, and when I did, I had everything planned so well, there was no room for mistakes. The nervousness of things going wrong set in, but I soon learned that in camping, you couldn't control nature or the way things flow. Just have fun and be one with what's happening around you.
Remembering All the Camping Songs
No one will leave camp not knowing at least two campfire songs, especially when you're roasting s'mores and laughing about the activities that day! It's one of the most memorable parts of camping, and no matter how long it has been, you'll probably belt out a few songs while you're at home, to the amusement of everyone else.
Camping may seem confusing at first, but it's one of the best ways to explore and push yourself to the limit. And through learning things from fun to hilariously embarrassing moments, you'll get to become even better at camping in the long run.
I hope that these confessions of a beginner camper informed you a bit on what goes on while camping, especially if it will be your first time! So what are you waiting for? Start planning your camping trip now and create some awesome memories!
