Camping Choices

Camping offers so many much needed options to spend your time outdoors. From setting up camp in a tent or backpacking to luxury RV camping; what method do you prefer?

When camping it is important to relax and enjoy your innate ties with the nature surrounding you. As a fellow camper, I recommend partaking in as many outdoor activities as possible. Some of my personal favorites include kayaking, swimming, fishing, hiking trails, observing wildlife, and hunting. In addition, there are many health benefits such as cardiovascular challengers induced when conducting tasks such as setting up and closing down camp.

Nature Trail Hiking

Nature Trail Hiking is an activity most people are capable of doing and therefore it is one of the most popular of activities among people of all shapes, sizes, and ages. Some people may be comfortable with walking longer distances while others choose to walk shorter distances and spend the majority of the day and night at their campsites. Either way, nature trails provide a fantastic means to enjoying time outdoors.

It is very important to be prepared for hiking short or long distance trails. One of the most important things to consider is choosing the proper footwear. This decision may not be something you spend a ton of time considering before going camping however, having the proper footwear is absolutely crucial. When choosing your shoes, you should purchase a pair specifically designed for hiking and that fit comfortably right off the shelf. A good pair of hiking shoes require no break in time-frame before they fit right. It is important that you do not choose a pair of hiking shoes simply based on how stylish they are or look.

Camping in Luxury RV Style

Ahhh… What’s better than having your own mini home on wheels? Recreational Vehicles provide camping luxuries that no other methods provide. These awesome vehicles are the way I choose to camp because they provide most of the luxuries of home such as AC power, air conditioning, heater, refrigerator, shower, bed, toilet, and so much more!

While RV camping is my choice, I cannot speak for everyone because one might conclude that it takes away from the full camping experience. Well personally, I’ll leave the hardcore campers to their bug spray bathes, take the criticism and sleep in my RV comfortably with minimal concern for malaria, West Nile, EEE, or worse. No thank you!

Camping In A Tent

Camping in a tent is an inexpensive and easy way to spend time outdoors with the entire family. It offers the full nature experience with basic shelter needs from rain or snow with the ease of equipment transport with a vehicle of any size.

While tent camping provides a convenient way to camp, there are a few things you should consider before deciding to camp with this method. One important consideration is that it may get very cold at night depending on the location. Because of this, you will want to dress accordingly and have the ability to build a safe campfire.

Another consideration should be sun protection since you will be likely to spend more time in the direct sun rather than inside your tent. I would recommend bring a sufficient sunblock containing SPF 30 or more and you may even wish to invest in a good sun shade sail pole kit. This can help provide an easy temporary way to secure a sun shade when other means aren’t possible.

In Conclusion

Whatever camping method you choose, it is important to always remember to be safe and have fun!

Your baby will need number of newborn clothing and linen items. Hence it is very important that you prepare yourself in advance for everything. Remember that new born grow very fast. Hence the clothes you will buy for them will quite likely have a very short life. So always buy two to five months older clothing. Here are some tips which will help you to make right choices for your baby.

Things to keep in mind while buying

Always buy enough clothes for you’re newly born to cover the three clothing changes in a day. Always opt for soft material, which are comfortable to wear and remove. Buy durable material, which is washable and long-lived. Buy baby clothes, which are durable else just one wash, would make them useless to wear. Always go for elastic waistbands and trousers. They are more comfortable for toddlers and easily adjustable. Try buying loose clothes they give plenty of room for a child to move his legs, such as leggings and sweats. Buy shapeless heels socks as they grow with your child. Avoid buying patterned socks, as the loose yarn from inside can catch in your baby’s toes.

What Baby Clothes to purchase?

Considering the fact that babies grow very fast, you will need to buy:

•             Buy around 4-6 undershirts or ‘onesies’

•             Buy around 3-8 nightgowns.

•             Buy 1-2 baby sweaters especially for the winter season.

•             Always keep a stock of Baby diapers ready

•             Buy 1-2 sets of Baby towels. Since the skin of the baby is soft, always buy soft baby towels.

•             Buy couple of pairs of baby socks

•             Buy 2-3 blankets to protect them from cold.

Baby Clothes to Avoid

Avoid buying Mobile Baby Walkers: They promise many things but are useless at the end of the day. They can be dangerous for your child and also do not help the child to walk.

Avoid Buying Infant feeders: Avoid feeding Infant feeders for a newly born child. Mother’s milk is the best milk at this stage. Do not use solid foods until your baby is able to eat from a spoon. You can also consult your doctor for any information about the same.

Avoid using Swings hanged to door frames: Avoid using swings, as they might be dangerous for your child.

Features Common to the Best Tactical, Police and Military Sunglasses

Military Police Sunglasses

What Are The Best Police Tactical Sunglasses?

Tactical sunglasses made for the police and military have many things in common.  All of the high-quality sunglasses have full UVA, UVB and UVC protection.  They go beyond this with many additional features that suit these professions.  The best military sunglasses have durable frames and ballistically tolerant lens.   They are designed for members of these professions to be able to use them on the job but are often used by other sports enthusiasts. Because of their snug and face forming fit, they are a great accessory to add to your workout clothes and can be a great asset to add to your workouts.

There are many types of durable frames made with various materials depending on the manufacturer.  Some use military grade aluminum with stainless steel hardware, titanium or even a highly flexible metal called Flexon.  Others use various types of plastics and polymers that offer varying degrees of flexibility such as XR-90.

How are Military and Police Sunglasses Different?

Arguably the most important component of the military sunglasses are the lenses.  The main reason they can be called military, police and tactical glasses is that the lenses are ballistically rated.  The minimum standard is the civilian standard ANZI/ISEA Z87.1. This is a standard for safety glasses, face shields etc., that is a minimum OSHA standard.  Technically for them to meet military standards you should see the MCEPS GL-PD 10-12 standard which superseded the MIL-PRF-31013.  Either one of these may be advertised, however or you may just see “meets MIL PRF standards”. 

In addition to the ballistic qualities, since these professionals are often wearing these glasses while they shoot, they should be form fitted, close to the eyes providing protection to the entire eye.  Most of these will also be polarized sunglasses.  This will help reduce the glare, increase the clarity, and make it easier for job performance. There are many companies that have these types of sunglasses. 

What to take away from this?

As always, do your homework.  Take some time to research the products.  Buy from reputable sunglasses companies that are known for making military and police style tactical sunglasses such as Oakley, Ray-Ban, Wiley-X and more. The US Army even puts out an approved Authorized Protection Eyewear List (APEL). It is a small list and is not all inclusive of the many brands that produce these specialty sunglasses.

The Art of the Sunglasses selection

Sunglasses The Art Of Selection

High End Brands vs Luxury Brands

Choose your sunglasses wisely.  Don’t just grab a pair off the rack based on style, brand, durability and cost.   These are all important considerations but we only get one pair of eyes in life so we should protect them!  In my humble opinion choosing between popular brands such as Raybans, Oakley or Maui Jim sunglasses is a difficult decision. In addition, you may decide to go all in with luxury shades with brands such as Ferragamo, Gucci or a full faced pair of Versace shades. Brand is of course important but should be of secondary importance to ensuring the highest UV protection your money can buy.  Keep in mind though, spending a lot on a pair of high-end designer sunglasses doesn’t mean the UV protection is the best.  You can just as easily get high quality UV protection in an inexpensive pair of glasses as well.

Why choose sunglasses with high UV protection?

First, why is UV protection so important?  Just as the UV rays can cause damage to your skin that can lead to cancer these harmful rays can also damage your eyes.  In the short-term exposure to UV rays can cause short term inflammation and redness similar to sunburn of the skin.  In the long-term UV can damage the retinas, corneas, can cause the development of cataracts or even cancer on the surface of the eye and around the skin of the eye.   Dark glasses with little or no UAV protection may help with the brightness and squinting but can be worse than wearing no glasses at all as your pupils will dilate letting more of the harmful UV rays in. While brand is not the most important factor, one of the better sunglasses we’ve found are the Salvatore Ferragamo SF 609 001 Black 130mm Sunglasses.

Back to UV protection

Sunglasses can have a plastic lens coated with a film that protects against UV rays or UV protection can be embedded in the lens.  Your best bet is to look for sunglasses that advertise 100% UV protection from both UVA and UVB rays.  This also may be expressed by the term UV 400 protection. In addition, large lenses are better than small round ones, wrap arounds or glasses close to the eye are a good choice too.  Color/mirrored sunglasses, Dark shades, polarized sunglasses and high/low cost may provide other benefits but don’t affect UV protection.  Make these choices after you have chosen high quality UV protection. 

The Conclusion

Whether you choose the high-end designer glasses or just need an inexpensive replacement pair – don’t overlook their UV protection value.  One final note, once you have chosen your pair of sunglasses, if you want to ensure they offer full protection, take them down to an optician and many will check them for free in a matter of minutes.
