Many people view deserts as nothing but a place of heat and exhaustion. They are right about it as well. However, with advancing technology, a new method of camping has been introduced. It is a thrilling new experience for those who are willing to try it. It is called “Desert Camping”. Below, the method is explained for how this experience is possible without any negative side effects.
The first thing that must be kept in mind is the obvious, lack of water. The desert is a vast expanse of dryness. Taking along extra water is a must. Experts have said that almost one gallon of water should be drunk every day spent in the desert. Breaths should be taken through the nose and fatty foods should be avoided. Now the possibility of heatstroke has become a minimum. Sunglasses should also be worn to protect the eyes.
The next safety measure involves a proper tent without any holes at all. While it may not look it, the desert is home to animals that are adapted to it. Be sure to seal up the tent properly before sleeping, otherwise a rattlesnake might be crawling into it.
The main problem that will be faced is battling the climatic elements. A strong tent capable of withstanding the heat, wind and cold should be brought while devices like mobile phones or LED televisions should be kept at home to prevent damage to them from the heat.
Style or fashion is not something you will need to be concerned about in a desert. Synthetic fibers are mostly recommended. Some people still prefer cotton clothes, as they have the ability to absorb and retain water. This ability could be useful to keep the body cooled during the day, but it won’t be beneficial at night.
The desert is not only about heat and boredom. There are also many nomadic tribes that are constantly moving around in the deserts. Some might even be willing to share their well water. A new experience could be obtained from their way of life, how they dress, how they find food, what they do for entertainment and the list go on.
The tribesmen might also have valuable pieces of trinkets that catch the eye many people. Camel riding is a small but nevertheless a piece of entertainment. It is not only about learning their way of life, but experiencing it.
So, the dare devils that are willing to embark on this journey should start packing their bags and go tent shopping. When they have retained, their friends will be amazed at their stories of the battle against mother nature, the valuable pieces brought from tribesmen, and also the tricks to how they survive every day of their lives in the desert. A new experience is available for everyone.
