Beginner Camping Mistakes, Don’t Make These.

Beginner Camping Mistakes, Don’t Make These.

Not being prepared for camping can be deadly!

I’m always on the lookout for helpful articles. I ran across an article from Australia about beginner mistakes and thought I’d share it with you. We all still make beginner mistakes, at least I know I still do. So the more we’re reminded what they might be, the less likely we are to make them.

Camping is camping wherever you go, so even in Australia they are making the same mistakes. It’s probably more important not to make these mistakes when your in the Outback with all of those deadly creatures like the Eastern brown snake, the second deadliest snake in the world, and the deadly funnel spider. It’s enough to make you not want to camp anymore. It makes me glad we live in America. LOL
