Picture this: in anticipation of the big family camp out, you invested in a deluxe portable gas barbeque.
You’re excited to fire it up at the campsite to feed the hungry kids when you realise, all too late, that the thing doesn’t work. Uh oh.
Failing to test out new equipment is one of the biggest mistakes that campers can make.
With anything you take out camping, you want to make sure you know how to use it before hand; set up a new tent in your backyard, learn how to use that BBQ and climb inside a new sleeping bag to make sure it’s big enough before you set out on your trip.
