Camping Tips: Electronics and Food Storage

Solvej Schou of the Associated Press offers a handful of tips for families that plan to go camping soon. Highlights include:

  • Unplug: "You can always bring an external battery pack and angrily play Candy Crush for hours, but that really defeats the purpose of being outdoors. ... Remember that the Internet will still be there later. Play cards, eat, drink, breathe in fresh air, hike, build a campfire and enjoy the company of others -- in person instead of online."
  • Stow food away: "Never leave trash, toiletries, dirty dishes, food or drinks unattended. Don't leave trash and open containers in your car or around the campsite. Keep your tent zipped up, and keep in mind that bugs and birds also enjoy nibbling on half-eaten peanut butter sandwiches, so don't give them the chance."
