Be careful when May Day outdoor May Day outdoor camping
1. Close to the water source. Camping and rest must be chosen close to water sources, such as choosing close to streams, lakes, and rivers. However, the camp cannot be set up on a river beach or beside a stream. Once it rains heavily, or the upstream reservoir releases water, or flash floods occur, there will be danger to life, especially in the rainy season and areas prone to flash floods.
2. Choose the shade. If it is a camp that needs to live for more than two days, you should choose a shady place to camp in good weather, such as under a big tree and on the north side of the mountain. This way, if you rest during the day, it won't be too hot or stuffy in the tent.
3. Close to the village. The camp is close to the village. If there is any emergency, you can ask the villagers for help. This is even more important when there is no firewood, vegetables, and food. Near the village is also a short road, which is convenient for the movement and transfer of the team.
4. Stay away from cliffs. When camping, the camp should not be set under the cliff, otherwise once the strong wind blows on the mountain, it may blow off stones and other objects, causing danger.
5. Leeward. When camping in the wild, the leeward problem should be considered, especially in some valleys and river beaches, you should choose a leeward place to camp. Also pay attention to the orientation of the tent door not to face the wind.
6. Lightning protection. In the rainy season or in areas with many thunderstorms, the camp must not be set up on high ground, under tall trees or on relatively isolated flat ground, otherwise it is easy to be struck by lightning.
