Camping 101, VI: Setting up Camp

Here’s a few tips for picking a proper campsite:

First, is it on high ground? “…lead me to the rock that is higher than I.  For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.”  Psalm 61:2

and is the ground level? “Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm.” Proverbs 4:26 

You might need to clear away some brush and debri: “…let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”  Hebrews 12:1

How’s the view? “Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Thy law.” Psalm 119: 18

“Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.” Luke 10:23

Are there lots of animal tracks?  This could indicate a high traffic area and should be avoided: “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith…”1Peter 5:8-9

Ok, Camper, now you’re ready to pitch your tent.  Do you have someone to share it with?  It’s best, for safety reasons, to have a partner on your trip.  The Camper’s Guide has provided a camping partner free of charge:  Camping Partner
