Camping Trailer Survival

Going camping is a brilliant way to get out and see the countryside. If you're fortunate enough to have a camping trailer, you'll also be able to enjoy the luxuries of your home as well. However, what happens when the stove stops working or the shower ceases to spray out warm water. It's never a bad idea to have a few camping basics put together in a 'survival box' just in case you run into any emergencies or get caught without basic amenities. 


If you ever find that you're either away from a campsite with access to water or you're in the middle of nowhere, not having access to a shower or wash basin can be a real pain. Fortunately there are portable showers that can actually provide warm water. They come in the form of plastic pouches that are filled with water and have a small shower head attached. They can then be hung in a convenient spot, either in a tree or on the back of your trailer. The heat from the sun will help to gradually warm the water up, giving you a great emergency shower or washing utility. Even if it's a gloomy day, the bag is better than nothing.

Flint and Sticks

If ever your stove breaks down or you run out of gas, its always a good idea to have a small portable backup stove. Failing that, a flint set is an invaluable tool that can be used to spark fires and give you the option to at least try and cook. They are simple to use and perfectly safe, you just need to run the steel across the flint and spark it over some kindling.

First Aid and Emergency Support

You should always have a first aid kit and emergency pack prepared, even if you are used to the luxuries of camping trailers. A simple first aid kit with some gauze, anti-bacterial cream, scissors and plasters are always good and can be purchased from an outdoor shop. With regards to the emergency pack, some vacuum packed food that doesn't require cooking, an emergency blanket, a spare mobile phone and some water purification tablets work well.

Camping regardless of the method you use is serious business and should be treated in the same way as if you were using a tent. The bottom line is to always tell someone where you are going and always prepare for any eventuality.

Recreation and Sports: How to Have a Great Time

Hey! My name is Ella and I would like to tell you about the fantastic weekends I have been having ever since I met my amazing boyfriend Simon. Before I met Simon, I was one of the least active people in the world. I would love to sit around all day watching my favourite TV shows. However, all of that changed. On our first date, Simon took me to a tennis court and taught me how to play. The following weekend, he took me deep sea fishing in a boat. Next week, I don't know what we will be doing but it will be a lot of fun. I decided to start this blog to share my new found passion for recreational activities.
