Things to think about before going camping alone:
Learn to enjoy the solitary fun of going camping alone so that others can enjoy themselves without hindering others. In this era, almost everyone needs to learn together.
Different from the excitement of general camping in the form of a group, one person goes to the camp to enjoy the other extreme. In the peaceful space of the individual, they are slowly emptying out, quietly reflecting and accumulating the details of life. In addition, under the epidemic, the general public is encouraged to maintain social distance and learn to enjoy being alone. Having fun without hindering others, in this era, almost everyone needs to learn together.
However, camping alone is unique, and everything can only be done by yourself, and you cannot expect assistance from someone around you. You must be more careful about what you need to prepare and consider before setting out. You must make sufficient preparations before you travel, and you must first collect relevant area and route information and understand your route and station location. Before departure, you should also pay attention to the weather forecast and notify your relatives and friends in advance. At least someone should know your itinerary, just in case.
Many people will share it on social platforms on the road or in the camp. When one person goes, this behavior adds practical significance. This is the same as the principle of notifying relatives and friends before departure. Share pictures on social platforms, or share with others in different ways, leaving more of your whereabouts. In the unlikely event of an accident, it can also add more clues for search and rescue. When feasible, it is better to make good use of information technology and share your GPS location from time to time, but this will increase the power consumption of the mobile phone. Therefore, preparing a backup power supply with guaranteed performance and good allocation of power usage is also one of the things to consider.
You can't share and share equipment with others. Camping equipment that one person goes to needs to be more targeted than ordinary camping.
In addition, because the equipment can no longer share some shared equipment with friends, the camping equipment that one person goes to needs to be more targeted than ordinary camping. Regardless of tents, cooking tools, etc., try to choose one person as a unit of lightweight equipment. In the normal state of camping equipment, which is usually lighter and more expensive, the consumption of equipment by one person will never be economical for multiple people.
If one person is missing, the carrying capacity will be at least doubled, and you can only rely on yourself. Therefore, when packing up, it is best to list the equipment and choose the lightest necessary items within the scope of the ability to avoid accidental care. People in the wild may not be allowed to replenish them in time. In an emergency, you can only rely on yourself. Swiss army knives, first aid supplies, headlamps, and other items are indispensable. How to choose is a question that needs careful consideration. List it and think clearly.

Need to pay attention to camping alone:
First, the choice of camping in the wild is on flat land closer to the water or closer to the stream. Ensure that there are no gravel slopes around the site and that the drainage conditions are good, and there will be no water accumulation problems.
Second, the camp's location should also be in a bright and dry place with sufficient sunlight. Don't choose a dark and humid place. This can help to dry the clothes, and it won't be cold at night in places exposed to the sun for a long time.
Third, when setting up a tent, try to set up a tent on flat, hard ground. Sand, grass, or cuttings with good drainage are ideal campsites. The entrance should be leeward and as far away as possible from the hillside with rolling stones. Don't camp on river banks and dry river beds. The four corners of the tent should be held down with heavy objects such as big rocks. Keep air circulation in the tent.
Fourth, when choosing the camp's location to build a tent, the tent's exit must be at a downwind position. Then, at each corner of the tent, find some larger stones and other heavy objects to hold it down, and then inlay four iron pins on the ground in four directions and use ropes and iron inlays on the four corners of the tent. The sticks are fastened to ensure the wind resistance of the tent.
Fifth, pay attention to safety at night when camping in the wild. You can set up a fire near the tent and then sweep the wood ashes around the tent. This can play a role in repelling insects and mosquitoes. The firelight can scare away snakes, mice, and The beast will be safe at night and night like this.
Sixth, when camping in the wild, we must pay attention to protecting the natural environment. We must not destroy the environment. Dispose of the garbage. It can be burned when the fire can be regenerated. The fire should be extinguished when preparing to leave. Make sure that the fire is completely extinguished before leaving to avoid fire.
Camping alone, it is more necessary to draw up plans for evacuation or emergencies in emergencies.
After arriving at the camping site, a person should pay attention to when going camping are not much different from those of ordinary camping, and the skills and knowledge required are similar. When choosing a camp, pay attention to the terrain to see if the grass slopes are flat, the soil is soft, the location can be drained, etc., to avoid precautions to put yourself in danger. In any emergency at night, such as sudden changes in weather, violent storms, or sudden temperature drops, everything can only be handled by individuals alone, and it is reasonable to minimize the troubles that may be encountered. Therefore, Shantou himself should also draw up plans for evacuation or emergency response in an emergency. If you are a less experienced camper, you should choose a preliminary site that allows emergency evacuation when camping alone. Only when you are familiar with the operation should you consider increasing the difficulty.
Finally, the mountains and wilds are natural, and everyone has a part. No matter how free you feel in nature, you should always remind yourself of the self-discipline of taking care of the environment. Respect other campers, keep the countryside clean, take away your trash, etc. These basic mountain qualities are common to any setting.
