To help you set up a tent, we’ve put together some generic tips & tricks for making your fall camping trips a success.
1. CHECK YOUR TENT
Checking and practicing your new tent is a necessary precaution before setting off, which may save you hours of embarrassing struggle at the campground. You need to check if there are things missing or the wrong components.
2. CHECK OUT THE GROUND
It is necessary to choose the perfect camping spot for your tent before setting up it. Make sure that the ground is as flat as possible, and is also free from rocks or tree routes which will make sleeping an unenjoyable event. And, of course, it would be better when it has the best view and the quietest environment.
3. REMEMBER THE PROCESS OF SETTING UP A TENT
- Unpack your tent, separate the outer rain cover, the inner, and take the pole, pegs, and lines out of the bag. Make sure you do this with care and don’t just chuck it on the ground;
- Connect poles, identify the correct place for each pole, then connect it to the outer or inner of the tent by sleeves or clips (according to the type of your tent); place the ends of the poles into the pole attachments, bending the poles to fit between them; putting the outer rain cover on the tent, make sure the doors of your tent are facing the right way;
- Use a peg or stake to secure the four corners of the tent to the ground.; make sure to push the stakes into the ground at a 45º angle leaning away from the tent and make sure that they are as far into the ground as possible; use the lines to make sure the tent fly from flapping or touching the inner tent, that can keep airflow in the tent and to stop rain or condensation dripping through to the inside of the tent.
4. CONSIDER THE WEATHER
Consider which way the wind is blowing and pitch your tent to make sure the strongest part is face-on into the wind. Car is also a perfect shelter while encountering bad weather, so you can park your car close to your tent to provide some extra protection if needed.
Pack up, and go to the campground! Enjoy a happy autumn camping trip.
