How to Stay Cool During Tent Camping?
If you are going for camping in warm seasons or the climate is warm and humid, then you should take care of making proper adjustments for staying cool in your tent.
If you have no experience of living for a week in a warm, humid weather, then you may not understand how important to carry cooling equipment and accessories while going for tent camping. It may become difficult for you to spend night and days in your tent in such conditions. You may aware or not, but tent air conditioning is not any difficult thing to adapt while camping.
Let’s take a look at some solutions for staying cool during tent camping.
Ice Cooler Fans
For having an on the spot cooling, an ice cooler fan is a good option. It is a small unit which is powered by a battery which fits on the top of an open ice cooler. It blows the air first from the ice reservoir and then over to you which results in an instant cooling.
The ice cooler fan will blow cool and humid air inside the tent because it passes through a melting ice first. It is a better option for dry weather than the humid conditions, because it may increase the humidity level inside your tent.
There is a good number of portable fans of 6-volts and 12-volts are available in the market which will provide enough breeze in your tent to make you feel comfortable. Such powerful fans can be operated via D-cell alkaline batteries which can last for several camping trips.
Portable fans can be attached to the tent ceiling or can sit on the floor depending their size and your comfort. They may occupy some more cargo space, but they are handy to have a breeze in your tent even without the electricity.
Portable Air Conditioner
A portable air conditioner is my favorite and is a perfect option for staying cool during tent camping. If you are going for camping in very warm and humid weather conditions, then the ventilations and fans will not have enough to make you cool. Because it is not the hot air which flows from outside, but it is the humidity inside the tent which makes it worse to stay in a tent.
In the humid climates, tent camping without portable air conditioner may become too uncomfortable to live relaxed and cool. Only a thing which needs to take care is, you should bring a 12-volt electricity supply for operating such portable A/Cs because such powerful things cannot get enough supply from portable rechargeable batteries. An extension cord of heavy duty is also needful to carry with a power supply. All you need to do is take required accessories and read the campsite electricity manual to place and operate such portable A/C easily.
After doing this, you will need to do only one thing, stay cool in your tent while doing other indoor tasks without worrying about the humidity and warm weather.
A tent camping in wild environment will help you escape and live some relaxing time from the everyday stressed life. There is nothing hard-pressed to find a TV show which contains something or everything about camping. But, after the cameras are turned off, the life is totally different in the live wilderness. So, you need to know and follow every type of cooling tips while going for tent camping in a humid climate.
