Nothing lets you allow camping more than a good fire and that’s why you should make it a point to make a campfire when you are travelling around in a campervan hire Australia. Most people know how to set up a good campfire although there are still plenty of travellers that don’t. In order to make sure you enjoy yourself, it’s important to consider campfire safety as well as knowing how to set up the fire. Here are a couple of tips for you to make the job easier:
• Check on any campfire restrictions in the area. Different places have different rules which means you are either going to have to read up before hand or be prepared to ask the locals where you’re going. If you are going to be in a campground it also helps to ask the campground management so that you know whether or not you are allowed to set up a campfire or which areas you are allowed to.
• Bring a spade or shovel with you. It’s much easier to put out a campfire with dirt than to find yourself a huge pool of water. At the same time it also helps ensure you aren’t wasting any of your precious water supplies on putting out a fire. That being said, it helps to have a large canister of water in case of emergencies.
• Never leave your fire burning unless you are in a survival situation where you are camping on the actual ground. You risk the fire spreading to your campervan hire Australia and potentially creating havoc in the camp area where you are at.
• Remember to bring your own wood or charcoal. Although you may think you have an abundance of wood around you, National parks are actually protected and you aren’t allowed to chop for firewood.
No one goes camping without a good fire. Make sure you are capable of setting up a good fire and capable of extinguishing it as well. That way you can have a safe as well as enjoyable trip in your campervan hire Australia.
