A few simple tricks that make camping easier

  • Apr 17, 2014

Toughing it in the wild is part of the allure of camping, but that doesn't mean you have to give up every luxury. With the right outdoor gear, you can transform seemingly complex tasks, such as making pizza and cleaning up your cooking utensils, into part of the process. Take a look at the following ways you can make your camping experience easier and more comfortable without losing the roughing-it vibe:

Make seemingly complex foods without the fuss
You don't need a stove to make a pizza. While it might seem outside the realm of possibility to enjoy this food over a fire, all you really need is a standard pie iron and the ingredients. Camping With Gus supplied a recipe where the crust is made of biscuit dough you can find in a can, and as for the toppings, it'll be the usual fare: cheese, sauce and other delectables, such as pepperoni and sausage. Layer the iron with the dough with a little bit of butter, spread on the sauce, cheese and toppings, and then close it up. Then, cook the "pizza" over hot coals or a low-burning campfire flame for up to five minutes or until the crust seems browned enough. If you're wearing a watch thermometer, keep track of the weather - the colder it is outside, the longer you might need to cook your dinner.

Don't mess with excess
Sources of water are usually precious commodities, and while you might be lucky enough to find a freshwater stream nearby, it can be a pain to lug dishwater to and fro. If you're nowhere near a source of water, it's even more important to conserve what you have. Rather than spending it cleaning your dishes, consider wrapping them in aluminum foil. It's an elegant solution that won't leave you dehydrated. 

The PRG270B-3 is packed with great features that can help you when you are out on a camping trip. This durable watch is designed for outdoor gear performance. The new triple sensor technology enables faster and more accurate readings. This will leave you with more time to enjoy the outdoors and not be fussing with your watch!
