When camping, you must take into account many factors, including trying to get as cold as possible, at least during the night. Do you want to know how how to heat a tent? Keep reading and take note of some keys to achieve it.
Going camping is a good adventure both alone and with family or friends, be they, adults or children. Without a doubt, it is a unique experience that we should all enjoy at least once in life, especially nature lovers and those with children.
- The first thing you should do is take into account the issue of cold since you prepare the backpack to leave. Add an extra piece of clothing that helps you fight the cold, as well as enough spare parts for socks, gloves, and a scarf. It is recommended that the clothes you wear be thermal and synthetic. It is important that you know the symptoms of hypothermia so that you can act in case you start suffering from them. Cold situations can provoke it, so you must react immediately.
- Hydration is essential for many reasons; one of them being able to have the body in better condition to combat the cold. Constantly drink water, especially in hot weather, as it is easily lost through perspiration. Protect the tent from the wind and rain, and you can do it by choosing a good camping site. These weather conditions usually affect our thermal temperature a lot, even lowering it to a great extent.
- Before going to bed, have a hot chocolate, a coffee or a cup of broth, also hot of course. This will help your body to go to sleep with good temperature and to preserve itself better at night. Never go to sleep when wet, as that would make you feel even colder. Dry yourself well and warm your body with a hot drink and thermal clothing.
- Another good trick to avoid being cold in a tent is to always keep your feet and hands warm. They are the most sensitive parts of the body to cold, so wrap them well, and the heat will stay better throughout your body. Heat the sleeping bag by putting a blanket inside that covers it in its entirety or clothing items scattered around it.
- You can also heat a couple of bottles of water and put them in the bag for a couple of hours before going to sleep, and they can keep it warm even up to 6 hours. Do not sleep directly on the floor; use a mat, mat, or even a mattress and also portable heaters, which will further insulate you from cold surface temperatures.
With all these tips, you will certainly not get cold in a tent … or at least keep warm as long as possible!
