Pop Up Tents Make for a Hassle Free Camping Experience
No matter how much technology seems to have changed the world, and the tendency to turn us into slaves to electronics because it’s present in every aspect of life, there’s still the undeniable connection between humans and nature. Being part of the hustle and bustle of overcrowded cities wakes the urge for escape in greenery so it’s no surprise the number of campsites keeps increasing. Though we might think it’s only in recent years that camping is gaining momentum, it’s actually long been present as the chance to be at one with nature and we have Thomas Hiram Holding to thank for it, the man known as the father of modern camping, a travelling tailor who used every opportunity to explore more of the world and published his handy Camper’s Handbook in 1908.
Even the wish to lead a healthy lifestyle that is emphasised nowadays due to our incorrigible sedentary day to day activities was not foreign to Victorians. In fact, it’s this wish that brought to the opening of the first campsite – Joseph Cunningham’s camp at the Isle of Man. After all that time, the nomad kind of vacationing is still very much popular. Along with taking you away from the concrete jungles, you get to spend quality time bonding with your loved ones. Great news is you don’t have to own a campervan to be able to join in on the camping frenzy, a tent will do. Though it might sound as a simple variant, setting up a tent can be quite the hassle and instead of fully enjoying your journey, you’d be wrapped up in all the tent business and find yourself on the edge of feeling overwhelmed. If you want to make the most of your camping experience, look no further than pop up tents.
Unlike other types, pop up tents are lightweight (most don’t even weigh more than 2kg), they aren’t bulky and can be easily carried even in a backpack, they are waterproof and UV resistant and won’t give you any trouble erecting and folding them as you’d do that in seconds. These tents can be true pop ups and hybrids with poles, either way they’re pretty user-friendly. Though they might seem too lightweight when compared to other tents, they still provide all the proper camping conditions, keeping you safe from the weather and mesh windows for ventilation so you can enjoy the fresh air without having uninvited bugs disturbing you. For more coverage you have the option of attaching a tarp tent.
It’s important to consider the number of people who would join you so you’d know beforehand if there’s going to be enough space for everyone in the tent. There are certain models that are fit for one, others for a family of four or six so make sure you purchase wisely. A good camper knows it’s not all about the tent either and always makes a list of camping equipment, taking care of the sleeping and eating primarily, with the proper air mattress or sleeping bags and the cooking supplies and ingredients to stay nourished. Get your pop up, create a list and get in the company of nature.
