Winding down for a nap or good nights sleep during a camping experience seems as simple as just finding a spot on the ground or in your tent and closing your eyes for a peaceful rest. Is there more to snuggling up with nature?
Sleeping beneath the moon and star filled night is without a doubt a wonderful experience, but it cannot completely replace the warm and snuggly feeling of having your favorite blanket wrapped around you when the night turns cold. If you are a family camper, you can hit a major home run and become your family’s “huggy-bear” for the day or weekend by making sure they can wrap themselves in the perfect blankets.
Have you ever taken the time to do a blanket review to determine what each of your family members considers being comfortable when it comes to getting cozy indoors and outdoors? You may be amazed at what you will learn by paying close attention to the blankets that each one of them chooses to use for comfort at home. Applying your newfound knowledge when you go shopping for camping gear will help you make a few well-educated blanket purchases.
Let’s walk through your camping blanket reviews together. While doing so, also keep in mind what type of weather and the type of terrain that will be in your camping area. If you are planning on camping in the Colorado mountains, you most definitely will want to consider providing more blankets than you would need to have if your family was going to set up camp on the plains or warmer desert areas such as Kansas or Nevada. On second thought, it may be a good idea to have extra blankets available anyway for adding additional padding between everyone’s body and the earth.
Baby Blankets – this review will be the most important to start with because we are responsible for the safety and well-being of these precious little ones. Though babies tend to spend a tremendous amount of their time sleeping, it is of the utmost importance to not forget that they are small bundles of energy and very active both when they sleep and when they are awake. Finding a baby blanket that is designed to allow limited crawling and tumbling, would be a fantastic idea.
Oversize Wool Blankets – I recall that during my younger years, many of us youngsters would refer to wool blankets as “old school military blankets” that would serve anybody and every body very well. These blankets are great to use for laying out a picnic setting with all the trimmings. In the unfortunate event of a vehicle break down, this same blanket can be spread beneath the car or draped over the hot radiator for protection while working to get back on the road.
Body Blankets – these blankets can truly be any man’s, woman’s or child’s best buddy during a camping trip because they are like walking around in a zippered sleeping bag.
There are many more blankets to review, so make sure to cover all of your bases.…
