with your neighboring campers for a story telling session and singsong
round the campfire. If you thought a Camping Vacation would be

fishing information, including proper license requirements. Some fishing
opportunities will require overnight backcountry use permits. It is always

problems with the law. Many land owners do not wish campers to be on
their property and some nature reserves prohibit camping due to damage
it can cause to the environment.
Wisconsin for instance has no national park but has some of the best
state parks you could ever want. So, it is not so important exactly where
you go as long as the place you go has adequate facilities and is well kept.

to Survive when Lost in Another Country
Traveling is one of life's greatest pleasures. But especially for trips to
another country, where everything is new and strange, traveling can be
quite a drag.
And if worse comes to worst, being lost in another country could be the
most horrible nightmare of your life. That is when learning the skills to
survive when lost in another country helps. Here are some tips to help
you endure the consequences of being lost in a strange place and live
through the means of survival until you can go back to your homeland.
1. Presence of mind
Being lost in another country is one thing, but not having presence of
mind is another and could be the worst thing that could happen to you.
It is still understandable that you might get lost in another country
because the place is totally strange to you. The only way to survive being
lost in another country is to have presence of mind so you can think of
ways to get a ride back home. Or if luck permits it, you can possibly
discover your way to your exact destination without having to spend
more than what you can afford.
Camping mixed with outdoor activity is a great way to get ourselves
involved with nature. National Parks can provide an excellent backdrop for
some of your outdoor activities.
Therefore in order to make sure that you have a pleasant camping
adventure, make sure that you are fully clothed against all odds.

There are many websites that cater to campers with information on
where to find the most affordable camp gear as well as the most popular
items to buy and use when camping. Get used to cooking over a wood
fire and sharing your space with wildlife, before you venture too far away
from the comforts of home.
2. Stay where you are
If you think you are lost, without the slightest idea where you are, or if
you do not have any clue how to head back to where you have come
from, stay where you are. Attempting to move further or trying to
discover ways to go back will only make matters worse.
Besides being a complete waste of energy, according to statistical reports,
nearly 70% of people who are lost cannot find a way to return to where
they came from.
3. Learn to provide your basic needs
If you really cannot think of a way to find your way back home, maintain
your basic needs by carrying an ample food and water supply as well as
clothing before you leave your place.
You never know what will happen next once you have arrived in another
country. So it is best to carry your basic needs with you in case something
goes wrong, such as getting lost. Keep in mind that traveling to another
country is not all play. You have to keep your senses with you and your
mind clear to anticipate the necessary things that you have to do in case
something occurs, such as being lost in another country. More on

punch, making them great for the trail. If you don't cook a lot at home
