Camping Tent Reviews
It’s a Camper’s Life Indeed
According to Encarta Dictionary, recreation is defined as an activity that a person takes part in for pleasure or relaxation rather than work. In simple terms, if you would like to amuse yourself or do something to relieve yourself from the workload that life sometimes (or even so, always) has to offer, recreation is your the go-to solution.
A lot of activities can be defined and placed under recreation. Sports can be considered a recreational activity, let it be basketball, soccer, baseball, and the like. It not only relieves the body from stress, it also gets those juices flowing, allowing the body to get into top shape while getting rid of the excess fat and substances. Another activity can also be exercise. It’s similar to sports in a way that gets the body moving but also, it targets specific regions of the body that you would like to perfect, so to speak. But if you’re the outdoorsy type, the type that nature and the beauty of the wilderness calls to, then camping is the best bet.
Camping isn’t exactly what you would call a simple activity. You just don’t march up to a spot, claim it as yours, dump your bag on the ground and inhale deeply the wonderful scent of nature. A lot of preparation is needed for this particular adventure, physical and emotional being the top two. First off, you need the basic equipment and what better than to start off with a tent?
A tent is the most basic of basic equipment needed during a camping trip. Not only does it serve as protection from the forces of nature, it also serves as your home away from home. It consists of fabric or different materials, depending upon the manufacturer, propped up by poles or ropes.
Even something as simple as a tent has its parts. Here is a brief overview:
Flysheet. The flysheet or otherwise known as the rainfly can be referred to as the roof of the tent. It is used to further protect the tent from the sun or from the rain. Not There are some flysheets which are manufactured in a way that collects condensation from the inside, therefore providing proper ventilation to the inhabitants.
Inner Tent. Basically, your inner tent is the inside of the house. It serves as both living and sleeping quarters. The size of it usually varies depending upon the brand and the preference.
Vestibule. This could be the receiving area or the patio when compared to a solid house. This is usually located outside the entrance and can be used for storage of food and other equipment. Some tents have this installed while others configured it so it would be removable.
Groundsheet. This is the barrier between ground and the sleeping bag. This provides ample protection.
Poles. The poles are the foundation of the tent. They provide support. This may be collapsible or not, depending upon the manufacturer. It is usually made of metal but some tents use wood.
Stakes. Otherwise known as pegs, these are used to fasten the tent to the ground.
Air vents. One of the most important things to consider when choosing a tent is if it provides adequate ventilation. Air vents are the answer.
Consider size, the fabric or material used, whether or not the tent is waterproof, if it has good ventilation and can provide adequate protection from the forces of nature. No matter the cost, make sure the quality and the size is right for you and your family in order for a wonderful camping experience.
