How to set up a tent for beginners camping

Jan 8, 2024
Many people plan to go camping during the holidays. When it comes to camping, setting up a tent is a compulsory course. Today, let's take a look at how to set up a tent.
There are not many supporting facilities for a tent, so we need to check them in advance before departure:
1. Is the tent fabric intact and undamaged.
2. Is there any rust on the accounting pole and can it be connected properly.
3. Are there any rust on the ground nails and are the quantities complete.
4. Is the rope broken and is the quantity complete.
If you are a beginner camping and setting up a tent for the first time, I suggest you practice it at home, mainly by setting up and collecting tents. Proficient construction techniques can shorten the time you spend setting up a tent at the campsite. During the practice process, you can also learn in advance whether the newly purchased tent accessories are complete, and whether each component can be assembled and installed normally.

After learning the techniques of tent construction, we also need to choose a suitable campsite. The best location is with mountains and water. If there is no such campsite, then finding a flat place is also possible,
1. Try to level off the campsite as much as possible.
2. Remove stones, branches, tree roots, etc. from the campsite.
3. Stay away from dead branches and shrubs, as they are prone to falling off and injuring people, and shrubs are prone to breeding mosquitoes.
4. Don't get too close to the riverbank, beach, etc., in case the river suddenly rises and floods the tent
5. Stay away from the cliff, as the top of the cliff can easily cause falling rocks.
6. Choose a place to broaden your horizons
7. Try to stay away from the noise and find a quiet place.
The tents we purchase are generally divided into automatic construction and manual construction. Automatic construction tents are generally relatively simple and do not need to be built. They only need to be thrown away and opened
Manually setting up a tent is quite professional and complex, requiring learning some building techniques, but it is not very difficult. The operation method is as follows:
In addition, there are also some spare parts that need to be prepared during camping. One is the mat, which is usually laid at the bottom of the tent to provide better protection and prevent hard objects from puncturing the tent.
Secondly, there is a sunshade (canopy), which is usually built at the top of the tent and is used for sun protection. Even in high sunlight, it is not as dry or kept hidden in the tent. If the weather is hot, sometimes hiding in the tent may not be cool and can only rely on the canopy.
1. Open the packaging and take out the outer tent, inner tent, tent poles, ground nails, and windproof ropes of the tent.
2. Connect the accounting poles, connecting each section of the accounting poles into a complete pole.
3. According to the instructions, hang the tent on the tent poles, with two poles in a crossed state.
4. Some tents are directly attached to the tent poles, while others require the poles to be inserted into the tent. It mainly depends on the type of tent you purchase. Note that the tent poles are interspersed with an internal tent.
5. Slowly bend the accounting pole and insert the end into the needle ring or fasten it with a snap.
6. Fix the internal tent with ground nails
7. After setting up the internal account, the external account only needs to cover the internal account. It is important to ensure that the direction of the external and internal account doors is consistent.
8. Fix the outer tent firmly with windproof ropes
Tip: We need to pay attention to the correct use of ground nails. It is necessary to insert the ground nails outward at a 45 degree angle into the soil, and try to insert them into the soil as much as possible to prevent the exposed parts from tripping people. At the same time, try to pull the windproof rope as hard as possible to separate the inner tent from the outer tent, so as to ensure air circulation inside the tent and prevent rainwater or condensation from falling into the tent.
When camping, it is recommended to park the car next to the tent, as the car is sometimes an emergency camping site. If the wind outside is too strong and the tent cannot withstand it, you can withdraw to the car and use the vehicle to block the wind.
