Tips for Cooking while Camping


Ever wondered if you can eat the same luxuriously tasting food, while enjoying the warm blaze of a campfire, under a clear starry night with nothing but silence surrounding you? Cooking while camping is a cumbersome job. As camp stoves can be bulky, and heavy people often chose the BBQ, as it is often the easiest piece of equipment to transport. However, many other methods for cooking outdoors do not require much equipment. Some options are as follows:

  1. Wrapping food in aluminium foil and putting small packages amongst hot coals will lead to success, and is fast.
  2. Use a grill over hot coals for grilling a range of marinated vegetables and meats; this will also yield a tasty meal.
  3. Measuring out food portions before going on your trip will minimise the work once you are outdoors, even pre-cook a dish so you just need to warm it up in the coals.
  4. Managing your fire is essential for cooking while camping; this ensures you get the perfect all round temperature needed.

Have a go and explore some ideas, just remember that meat must be cooked thoroughly. If you are going ‘outback’, do ensure you have done your planning and food organisation, and that you are clear on what your DIY camping kitchen system requires – no shops around the corner for anything you forget.


5 Packing essentials for the Caravan Holiday

Packing essential for a Caravan Holiday

I have always enjoyed going out in a caravan. There are some of my friends who also accompany me and they enjoy every bit. But I need to do a lot of planning before venturing out. A caravan can be parked besides a lake or in between a mountain but there are things which should be there inside. Recently I went for a month-long tour across the outback and missed many things. Then I thought to make an exhaustive list of articles to be carried. Here is the list of 5 essentials for a caravan holiday.

  • A Satellite Phone – Normal phones may or may not work in wilderness. Do not take chances. Carrying a satellite phone is a necessity when you are travelling. There is a new gadget which can turn your iPhone into satellite phone.
  • Power Inverter – Batteries can be charged using the Caravan engine, and to light the interiors during night you would require a power inverter.
  • Portable Solar Panels – This is the free way to charge. Portable solar panels help to charge batteries and also heat water without worrying about the fuel. Here is a nice deal. Use the solar energy which is in fact the original source.
  • First Aid Kit – An essential item for every travel, but for caravan travel it becomes very necessary. When you are camping 100 miles away from nearest town it can help. Make a kit after a check up with the doctor to ensure that the first aid kit is complete.
  • Water – Store at least 80 liter water and refill when you are near a town. Every individual requires 4 liters of water daily just for drinking.

Is there anything you would add to the list? Let me know.
