Winter is nearly here and for most people camping is the last thing on their mind. Camping equipment gets packed away until spring and it’s time to hibernate, but there are many reasons why you should consider camping this winter.
As long as you keep yourself warm and comfortable, you too will see that camping in winter is the best!
Ahhhh campfires, the number one reason I love to camp in winter. In summer fire restrictions are in place in many places, so you can’t enjoy campfires.
There’s nothing better than sitting around the campfire with friends drinking, telling stories and keeping warm. Plus campfire cooking is delicious and you can’t forget about how good it is to toast marshmallows!
Avoid the crowds
If you are camping in the southern part of Australia where it’s cold in winter, you will have less people to compete for the best campsites. With fewer people around you will absolutely appreciate the silence and the world seems to slow down even more.
Insects, like flies and mosquitoes are often the reason people don’t like camping but in cold weather insects stay away keeping your camping trip bug free.
Cooler in tent or camper trailer
The summer heat in Australia can be harsh making camping unbearable at times, so winter camping can be a blessing. It’s much easier to keep yourself warm in the cold weather than trying to cool down in the heat. Here’s some excellent tips on keeping warm if you choose to camp this winter > Camping in Comfort
Hard floor camper trailers are also an excellent way to keep you off the ground and you’ll find them warmer than tents.
Kick those winter blues
Winter and the lack of sunlight can affect people’s moods, but camping and the outdoors can help you kick those winter blues. Natural light and exercise stimulates the production of serotonin, the hormone that affects your mood. You spend most of your time outdoors when camping and generally are more active, making camping the perfect solution.
If you’ve chosen to brave the cold for the first time do your research and be well prepared and we are sure you will love it just as much as us.
For more advice feel free to give our Adelaide showroom a call on 08 8281 6696.
When planning your next camping trip you may wonder how you are going to power some of your essential appliances and accessories? Camping is a time to get away from it all, but these days there are some valuable accessories; such as fridges, camping lights or even your mobile that can make your camping trip more comfortable.
Generators have always been a popular choice for camping enthusiasts but that seems to be changing. Generators require fuel, emit harmful fumes, and often require maintenance. Plus they can be extremely noisy disrupting the peace and tranquility for anyone near them. In fact generators are not allowed in national parks and even some caravan parks ban their use.
That’s where solar power steps in. Portable solar panels kits are ideal for camping and give you flexibility to camp where you want and for how long, without having to use a generator. If you haven’t considered using portable solar panels while camping, then have a quick read of some of the benefits, they may change your mind.
- Solar power is a renewable carbon neutral source of clean natural energy, making them environmentally friendly.
- They are a silent source of power so you and your camping neighbours can continue to enjoy the tranquility while running your appliances.
- Saves you money as it’s free power from the sun, there are also generally no maintenance costs and you can avoid fees for powered sites.
- Using solar power can give you greater flexibility when camping as you can camp wherever you want without sacrificing using your appliances.
- Solar panels are easy to use and convenient solution to power. They are available in portable kits so you can take them camping with you and set them up easily.
- Having a power source when you are in the middle of nowhere can help keep you safe. If you happened to get lost or there was an emergency, solar power will allow you to use a communication device to get help.
It’s important to think about whether you need power when camping and we understand that it can be quite confusing with all the options now available. We are more than happy to help you work out your energy requirements and find the best solution for you.
One popular kit we recommend is the 120 Watt Monocrystalline Portable Folding Solar Panel Kit from Kamper King, which we currently have in stock. Feel free to visit our showroom at 1421 Main North Rd, Para Hills West or call us on 08 8281 6696.
