A girl’s guide to planning your pack for a camping trip

Posted by on Mar 31, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

If your boyfriend or significant other has convinced you to go on a camping trip, and you are decidedly not the outdoors type, it’s time to get smart about what you pack. Here are the essentials to keep you feeling your best when you are on your camping trip. A hiking bag If you don’t have a hiking bag already, head into an army disposal store to get fitted. While you can always borrow one from your boyfriend, hiking bags need to be fitted and adjusted to heights and you may find that your partner’s bags are very uncomfortable for you to carry for a long period if you are different heights. Many women need shorter bags, to fit their shorter torsos. Baby wipes You may not get a chance to shower for a couple of days when out in the bush. Bring some baby wipes to wipe down your face, and other sweaty areas before bed. It won’t be as nice as a hot shower, but will be better than trying to sleep with a grimy face. A scrubber bag One of the best ways to feel fresh is fresh clothes. Scrubber bags let you agitate and clean clothes on a flexible rubber washboard, and fold down to a small and lightweight package, which is easy to fit into any storage item. This is a great way to wash out small items particularly like socks, underwear and singlets so you don’t have to carry as many clothing items on the trip. These are often available from army disposal stores. A quick dry towel Camping towels or chamois are very quick to dry so you don’t end up needing to cart around a heavy wet towel if you do find a shower or just go swimming. They are also a great way to dry off wet hair in the colder weather and can be hung from your bag to dry out as you walk. These are often available from army disposal stores in a range of sizes. Sensible shoes While your standard athletic shoes are fine on established and relatively flat paths, if you are heading into rockier terrain if can be sensible to pick up a pair of hiking boots which offer ankle support if you take a tumble. Rolled ankles have put an end to many camping trips. For more supplies and information, contact a company like Centenary...

Five Businesses You Can Run from A Caravan Trailer

Posted by on Mar 25, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

You’re plagued with wanderlust and want to explore the country, but you need a job to support you along the way. Luckily, there are many jobs you can take on the road, and with the right caravan trailer, you can essentially haul your business behind your caravan. Here are five businesses you can run from a caravan trailer Food Stand Whether you make the best waffles in the world, amazing chips or world-class hotdogs, you can easily pull a food trailer behind your caravan. When planning your travel itinerary, plan to stop at lots of fairs or contact cities to see if you can get permits to sell on their sidewalks or beaches for a few weeks. Creams and Potions Shop Just as a trailer can be converted into a food truck, you can convert a trailer into a small shop for creams and potions. You can create a tiny space into which people can walk to browse through your merchandise. Alternatively, you can have displays visible in the trailer and on outside shelves, and people can place their orders through a large window. If you love to make your own lotions and creams, you can craft your own inventory. Otherwise, you can join a multi-level-marketing company and peddle their wares. Ideally, you want to book yourself into bridal shows, expos and other events as you travel to attract customers. Telecommuting If you already have a telecommuting job, you can actually pull your very own office on a trailer behind your caravan. For example, if you have a large caravan, you can pull a small pop-up trailer. When you get to your location, your family can hang out in the caravan while you set up the pop-up trailer to work. For internet service, you can get a caravan antenna that connects you to satellite internet service or you can use your mobile phone as a “hotspot”. Professional Racing Business If you love speed, consider turning it into a career as a BMX racer, a race car driver, a motorcycle racer or a similar pursuit. You can haul your racing equipment in the caravan trailer, and you can schedule your journey around races and competitions. Crafting Company If you love to knit or craft items, you can turn that into a business. Convert your caravan trailer into a trailer that works as a sales stand, but also ensure you have room to work on new creations in there. You can take the trailer to Renaissance festivals, art fairs and anywhere else people buy crafts, but you can also make items to sell online.
