Once I got started on the article on Senior glamping I found that if I included everything in the first article it would be so long no one would want to read it. So I focused on camping in general and then covered types of tents, mattresses and flooring. I also added information about travel CPAP machines. I found there was more I needed to cover for you if you still tent camp. So, this article I am covering things such as solar powered items, that include lighting, fans, laptops, heaters, air conditioners and the like. Now, I am no expert on all these things. I do a lot of research and then I start adding them to my own camping experience.
Solar Power while camping. For this I do not have a perfect answer. You should do your own research on how much power you will need. That all depends on what you plan on needing to supply power for. Initially for me I started with just wanting to have solar powered lights. The first things I bought were for fun. It was to solar powered lightning bugs. The give off light but not enough to read by. I bought these at Bed Bath and Beyond
Solar blankets for comfort. One way to help keep your tent cooler in the summer is to use a solar blanket on top of your tent.
Solar panels to power your stuff is an option as well. You will need to figure out everything you want powered and then figure the wattage to know how many solar panels and the wattage they can produce and what size battery you will need. This subject can get very detailed.
Then I found the red lantern that looks like a flame is burning but the top of the lantern has led lights that make it brighter. (it is great for mood lighting and in the tent but again not bright enough to read by) I found my lantern at Scheel’s.
I do bring a bunch of flashlights. I have small ones to take with me for when you have to make a bathroom run.
For those of you who want to glamp instead of just camp I found a chandelier with battery operated candles with a remote that I will be adding for my next campout. This can be found on Amazon. The chandelier alone is 26.93 the battery remote controlled LED operated candles is also found on Amazon is 20.90.
There are so many kinds of lighting available for camping. There is even glow in the dark things to use to help you not run into or trip over. Glow in the dark tent stakes and glow in the dark rope to name a few. I also included glow sticks you can drop in bottles for lighting.
I also threw in the horse shoes. Glow in the dark yet. Might be fun for everyone at night.
I have bought or will be buying much of what I am showing you. I keep searching for items that will make it very comfortable to tent camp and ways that I won’t trip and fall. I hope you enjoy your next camping/glamping trip.
Till neste gang, (till next time)
