There is nothing better than spending a weekend in the great outdoors. Just because you want to “get away from it all,” however, doesn’t mean that you can’t be comfortable while you do it. You don’t have to go so far as to buy a camper that costs as much as a small house, but there are some simple things you can do to make your campsite feel more like home. Keep reading to find out what they are. Six Simple Tips to Make Your Campsite More Comfortable

Note: I do not camp at numbered or prepared/civilized sites: most of the places that I camp take four wheel drive and good, at least moderate traction, off road tires to access.

Pull in and park...
Spend some time wandering around looking at the site; trees, slopes, location of the stream if available, where the campfire ring is/will be and level, rockless, open spaces (potential tent sites) back in the weeds.
Pull the vehicle over to the selected (best) tent site, unload and set up camp

Carry a chair over to the fire ring.
Do some maintenance to the fire ring and clean the site generally.
Check out any neighboring sites for leftover firewood, etc.
Sit down and have a drink and a pastry/doughnut.
Do a several hundred yard radius walkabout looking for standing or hanging deadwood and carry some back to the fire ring.
Chop it into good firewood lengths (bow saw), then do another walkabout to gather more.
After enough fire wood has been transported, cut and stacked; sit down and contemplate/appreciate nature.
Have some cold fried chicken, or a sandwich, possibly with picknickish sides (from the local deli the previous day)..

Relax and...
