    Preparing for a camping trip on the moors

    A camping trip on the moors can be one of the most scenic and serene staycations that the UK has to offer. Going back to basics, taking in the beautiful, rugged green of the Pennines, a camping trip on the moors can be just what the doctor ordered.

    Yet, if you are hoping to pin down the pegs on a camping trip on the moors, it is important that you prepare correctly. After all, without the right attire and equipment in tow, you will be susceptible to common camping accidents such as slips, trips and falls.

    How to prepare for your camping trip on the moors

    First and foremost, when considered a camping trip on the moors it is important to choose your campsite and become acquainted with the facilities on site. It may be that the campsite has certain wildlife nearby or isn’’t accessible by car. This information is your starting point for how you prepare for your camping trip on the moors.

    Once you have picked and booked a site that is suited to your needs, you can really begin to prepare your pack for your camping trip on the moors.

    Some of the general basics you will need to take with you on your camping trip, include, but are not limited to:

    • A tent
    • Beds: are you fine with a sleeping bag, or do you prefer inflatable mattresses too?
    • Attire: synthetic fabrics, socks, layers, sturdy waterproof walking boots… pack for the weather
    • Equipment: including wood, fireslighters and a stove, cast iron cookware, water carriers for example
    • Food: lightweight shelf-life stable foods are the best option; eat fresh foods first
    • Map of local area
    • List of emergency contacts
    • First aid kit

    Remember to tell someone about your plans too. This means that if you do suffer a camping accident, people will be aware that you could be missing or injured.
