Going Camping will always be one of the absolute best time of your life, no matter when or how you go, why? Because Life is meant to be lived fully, and part of living is to go exploring and fulfilling your curiosity, since that's what make you Human. And being Human is great and wonderful, if you know how to enjoy life. But first, there are certain things that you must know about any camping environment, such as... Did You Know That:
- Ticks must be connected to their hosts for at least a day and a half–36 hours–to pass Lyme disease.
- In 2009 alone, there were more than 30,000 reported cases of Lyme disease.
- Niagara Falls actually consists of three sets of waterfalls. Canada’s Horseshoe Falls are the longest with a 2,600 foot brink, while the connected American and Bridal Veil falls have a 1,060 foot brink. In total, 750,000 gallons of water run over the falls every second.
- A mouse can squeeze through an incredibly small space thanks to its soft skull. Zip up your tent at night–if there are holes bigger than a ballpoint pen, a mouse can get in.
- It is a myth that fish can be humanely killed with ice water. According to Australia’s RSPCA, the most humane way to kill fish is to strike them in the head with a blunt instrument or to spike the fish.
- You can tell the temperature by listening to a cricket chirping. Count the number of chirps in 14 seconds and add 40 for the temperature in Fahrenheit.
- The record high temperature in the United States was recorded in Death Valley, California at 134 degrees Fahrenheit.
- The record low temperature in the United States was recorded in Prospect Creek, Alaska at -79.8 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Black bears can run at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. They also have an incredible sense of smell, so take appropriate precautions when camping in bear territory.
- The largest wolf species in North America grow to about six and a half feet from tail to muzzle.
- Mosquitoes can smell the carbon dioxide in a human’s breath from over 100 feet away.
- Hardwoods don’t spark, and seasoned hardwoods are ideal for campfires. Many campsites don’t allow you to use wood from the ground, so kiln-treated hardwoods are an essential supply.
