Camping and Traveling

So often we think of traveling as only done from the side of a hotel room, but not from within the fresh mountain air of a tent. Recently we utilized one of their Utah vacation packages where they taught us about the area and peaked our interest in doing some camping there later. So if you’re one of those who are going to go traveling and camping this year then keep reading as I’ve got some tips for taking car of your tent:

For a newly bought tent, try to assemble and disassemble it before the actual camping to familiarize yourself with it. Normally your tent will have a manual so make sure to follow it correctly.

Make sure that all the parts and accessories of the tent are complete. It is also advisable that you bring an extra part or accessory in case that something will get lost during camping.

Setting-up a Tent

Before deciding to camp out in an area, it is best that you inspect the surroundings first. Make sure that the floor where you will set-up your tent is dry and that there are sharp objects such as twigs or rocks. Also, see to it that the land is not too elevated so you will be comfortable when you sleep.
If you will have a campfire, the direction of the smoke must not be in contact with your tent. Tents sometimes get holes because of flying sparks.
Make sure that you have properly hammered the pegs of the tent to ensure that it will not be blown off by a strong wind.

Maintenance of the Tent

Remove any dirt or leaves from the inside and outside of your tent. You may also use water in cleaning your tent. Just make sure that you don’t wet any non-waterproof part of the tent.

Holes or tears should be repaired by a professional. Don’t try to repair it on your own if you have no experience in doing it; you might even aggravate the damage of your tent.

Keep your tent dry and make sure that it has enough ventilation to give you a comfortable sleep.

So if you are daring enough to do some traveling that would include doing some camping then be prepared. And if you aren’t quite that daring then check out some Utah vacation packages to aid you on your way.

Tips For Building A Safe Campfire on an ATV Trip

Did you know?

Almost 200,000 acres of forest are burned every year, that’s the same size of 375,000 football fields! Millions of dollar have been spent for extinguishing forest fires. Many of these wildfires were caused by campfires. When you go on an ATV tour, or if you’re just taking an ATV out for a nice camp out then make certain you’re building fires the right way so you don’t burn the forest down. We just got back from a Zion ATV tour If you are planning to go for a camping trip and you would use a campfire for your lighting or cooking, then follow these guidelines to keep you safe and to avoid forest fires:

1. Choose a safe site


Choose a site which is not too open and windy. Also, having a source of water such as rivers and lakes nearby will be excellent. Make your campfire above a rock or on a bare soil. Leave an open space, at least three meters, and make sure that it is free from twigs, stumps, branches, and leaves. Leave an open space, at least 15 meters, and keep it free from houses, trees, or tents.

2. Prepare your site


Make sure that your there is a clean and open space around the place where you will make your fire. Remove all leaves, pine needles, twigs, and grasses. Observe your surroundings. Make sure that you have a bucket of water and a shovel to control the fire. Or you may be traveling to the sheriffs office.


3. In maintaining your campfire


Whether your hiking or on an ATV out playing around make certain you maintain your fire and always have eyes on it. These kind of traveling tips are easy to say but harder to keep up on. And keep your fire small. It must not reach 1 meter in height and in width. A small campfire is safer since you can control and extinguish it easily. Having a small fire will also allow you to be closer to the fire without feeling too much heat from the fire. Also, you can cook your food easier if you are closer to the fire.

All About Hiking Boots

These Boots Are Made For WalkingPhoto Credit:jayneandd

Camping is another form of traveling and is a popular recreational activity for many reasons. For other people, this is a sweet and peaceful escape from the abusive civilization and work environment. For others, this serves as a challenge for them, on how they will survive in a place without electricity or any means of communication. For whatever purposes, camping is a sure way to enjoy the nature free from any distractions. We recently went and got set up with the Utah ATV rental place and were able to go camping and had a great time. But it was there that we learned you need the proper boots to make it a good experience.

Fishing, hunting, canoeing, tree planting are some of the activities that you can also while camping. However, of all the activities that you can do, hiking is definitely the most inherent with camping. You simply cannot do camping without hiking; whether you will hike uphill a mountain or just going to your car from your tent, you are already hiking. Therefore, it is needless to say that you will really need a good pair of hiking boots if you are planning to go camping.

Not all camper shoes are created equally so a camper should be expected to be prudent in selecting his hiking shoes or slippers. The first thing that you must consider is the activity that you will do. If you will only be walking around the campsite then a light and comfortable hiking shoes will be enough for you. You may also consider the height of the shoes in choosing. Having a high apex in your shoe will help you avoid dirts and sands from getting in your shoes. Also, this gives additional strength to the shoe as you walk on rocky terrain.

For long hikes that includes walking on riverbeds and streams, you must remember this important fact: waterproof boots does not tighten when in contact in water. Water will not change how your shoe will fit you. If there is a big chance that your feet may get wet then it will be for your best interest to look for camper shoes that will not allow water to penetrate.

If you will walk along rocky trails or up a rocky mountain, then go for camper shoes with metal spikes to make your walk a lot easier. Rocks may be a hindrance to you and may cause abuse and pain to your feet if you will only wear shoes with rubber soles. Metal spikes save you energy and give you comfort in your hike.

If ever you have decided on the kind of shoe that you will need, make sure to get one with a good quality from a trusted dealer. Avoid buying cheap, and low quality boots to avoid any hassle in your hike and to make sure that you complete your hike safely. It would be a difficult chore to fix your boot in the middle of a jungle or a desert. If you have already your good pair of camper shoes with high quality materials, and good fit and style, then you can go with your hike with no worries whatsoever.

Traveling for In Vitro Fertilization

Before we get under way mentioning in vitro fertilization and the steps you would need to take when traveling for it, it’s undoubtedly a wise plan to assess human fertility from a clinic that does pgd preimplantation genetic diagnosis. Let’s start-off using the eggs. Ladies are really born with their life time amount of eggs. From the moment a girl attains teenage years, ordinarily near age 13, a girl carries somewhere around 500,000 eggs for her whole entire life span. The eggs are in fact housed inside a mini sack referred to as a “follicle,” and most of the times in the course of this origin of procreation we utilize the terminologies “follicle” and “egg” conversely. Monthly once a girl experiences her menstruation a set of such follicles is actually let go, and is actually just helpful for the present-day month’s menstrual cycle. Underneath the effect of a bodily chemical known as FSH, (follicle stimulating hormone), which is produced via the pituitary, the follicles initiate to mature. On the other hand, during a regular cycle, a female simply creates adequate FSH for one follicle in order to thoroughly establish and also all the remaining smaller follicles break down. Just after approximately two weeks the developed egg is prepared to ovulate along with an additional hormonal agent termed LH, (luteinizing hormone), is unleashed so as to encourage ovulation. Under the prominence of this particular swell of LH, the follicle breaks straightforward discharging the egg, that is at that time taken up from fallopian tube. Soon after launched, the egg remains in the fallopian tube for approximately 12 to 24 hrs. Which is the lone time period in the course of the month which a female are able to truly get pregnant. Semen must journey by means of the vaginal canal, the womb and all the way down the fallopian tube to the egg so as to fertilize the egg. The fertilized egg, at this moment referred to as an “embryo”, pushes on journeying by means of the fallopian tube to the womb and imbeds around a week later. A week later, assuming that the woman misses her typical period, she can probably anticipate a fertilization check to become unmistakable.

Now I ‘d like to speak about In Vitro Fertilization, likewise referred to as “IVF.” The function of IVF is usually to make numerous eggs so as to improve the likelihood of gestation. Now there are 5 degrees incorporated with IVF. The initial is usually termed “Suppression.” Throughout the Suppression stage we must shut off a female’s regular bodily chemicals. That is commonly helped by oral contraceptive pill, or a mixture of birth control tablets and hypodermic injections. The next juncture of IVF is termed “Ovarian Stimulation.” With this phase females infuse everyday amounts of FSH, (“follicle stimulating hormone”), for them to procure a wide range of egg follicles in order to develop. Currently you may well keep in mind that in the ordinary condition a lady would primarily create sufficient FSH to motivate the development of a single egg/follicle though generally there are numerous eggs obtainable every month. From administering extra levels of FSH we have the ability to procure a number of eggs during an individual month. The following phase is normally referred to as “Egg Retrieval.” It is usually executed the operating room with intravenous sedation or sleep and is really fairly pain-free. A needle is traversed the vagina precisely to the ovary as well as inside the egg follicle from where we have the capacity to acquire, or extract the egg under suction. The egg is usually thereupon given to the embryologist specifically where it may prepare the 4th phase of IVF termed “Fertilization and Embryo Development.” Soon after the eggs are given to the embryologist the eggs are usually combined with semen possibly inside a container, or maybe fertilized through administering just one sperm straight inside the egg (a treatment called ICSI). As soon as fertilized, the embryos are normally enabled so as to increase from two to five days before they await embryo transmission. IVF’s concluding action is simply the “Embryo Transfer.” That is finished in the facility, and is really a swift and also uncomplicated process. According to the client’s age, a specified variety of embryos are normally transmitted by the cervix right within the uterus by using a manageable plastic catheter. The amount of eggs to be moved is really really based upon the client’s age. With ladies less than the age of 35 we relocate one to two embryos, and for females above 40, as far as five embryos. The effectiveness amounts of IVF are usually also hinged on age. With females beyond 40, impregnation numbers are actually around 25 % per embryo transfer, though those for females beneath 30 are better, somewhere around 50 % to 60 %.

How To Pack a Carry On For a Month – Part Two

Part Two:

Now coming towards me with the tail of the shirt, sleeves still going where the pants legs are going on the opposite direction. So lay these out, have them buttoned, you don’t have to mess with the little tags like we have from our store and I just keep stacking these up.
Let’s count what were going to have in here; we’re going to have four pairs of pants, one skirt, one dress, that’s four pants or four bottoms and one dress. Tops; we’re going to have nine tops packed and then don’t forget that the TSA has gotten a lot tougher with the security, they want us to go in the airplane with our clothes on we got another short, another bottom, so six bottoms, ten tops. Multiply 10 x 6 you’ll have 60 combinations or if you plan perfectly with the coordinated outfits to where all these garments work together and here’s our nice jacket, let’s show them that Ji, this is our nice warming layer.

If you plan it perfectly where every top goes with every bottom it’s 10 x 6, that’s 60 combinations and never wearing the same combinations twice. So that’s how we come up with 2 months worth of travel clothes in one wardrobe. Now pay attention; this is as complicated as it gets, you take the second garment and fold it up over the top one. We are going to bury this nice jacket that perhaps we might want somewhere along the line, this is a bundling method, it’s the most efficient use of space because the clothes are aligned flat. So you take that second from the top, fold it up over the top one.
Now that top garment can fold up over it and basically keep it simple. I’m inter twining the top two garments that we’ve stacked here. If you want to get around and not having to peel all these off and that is the number one concerned that people do announce to us and we can understand that. If you’re on the move everyday perhaps this bundling method wouldn’t be for you. You don’t have to dig into it.

So what we ask people to do is perhaps to two bundles. Tomorrow I know I’m going to be putting a nice destination for a nice couple of days, I lay out a couple of shirts, a couple of pants, inter-twine them in this bundling method and now I don’t have to dig into the suitcase every time I want something. At the end of this I’ll pick up our bundle and I’ll show you it comes right out of the suitcase, you put it on the bed, you can hang your garments up if you wish because I don’t know who likes to live out of their suitcase, that’s no fun but really, we want to kind of hang them up if possible they’ll stay in better shape but it’s up to you.

The main point is that you’re not having to dig into the suitcase every time you want something. If you plan ahead, put a couple of garments at the top and the bottoms to the top bundles so you won’t have to dig every day. I’m getting down to where I have the full length dress and the skirt, fold those up and I kind of work my way back down in the bag in the same order or the close to the same order as I sacked them in the first place. If you get out of order like I often do, that’s okay.

I folded up the skirt, I folded up the dress and now the pant legs come up and over and we start to form our nice neat bundle. It looks like I might be able to get these clothes but I guarantee you it’s worth many many times, we’ve done this demonstration for years, it’s a bundle method, I kind of like to call it the gussy method, that was my mother’s name, she originated this, you bring the sim straps and over and we don’t even have to jump up on the bag to close it.

There is it, it’s a soft sided bag, it will close easily, remember we started with 6 pounds 5 ounces in this suitcase, we’ve added … let me see, we’ve added 15 garments and a couple of pairs of shoes, we’ll wear a suitcase and we’ll see how much we have at the end. And there we are; 21 pounds. So you filled up your carry-on with a lot of clothes, we have outfits for two months and now you’re ready to pack light and do more, thanks for coming to

How To Pack a Carry On For a Month – Part One

We’re going to show you today how to pack in a carry-on for months at a time. 60 days and nothing but a 22 inch carry-on, it weighs 6.5 pounds and at the end of our demonstration we’ll show you how much it’s going to weigh when we pack in … Ji show them, we have 16 garments we’re going to pack in this little carry-on. This was helpful for us when we packed for rafting the Colorado river this year.

So pay attention, it goes fast. Keep in mind that second piece, that second carry-on that you’re allowed on majority of airlines is carrying your make-up, toiletries, rain gear, medications, all the other basics of life are in your carry-on tote. The 22 inch; we like to fit in all the clothes, the underwear, the socks, the nylons and so on are going to go into our hanging organizer.

First we start with our two pairs of shoes, we limit it to two pairs of suitcase, one on our feet and gals you can usually find a little place for your sandals. So if we have two pairs we cover them with our shoe covers, we got two pairs of shoes, for the flats it’s against the side of the foresides of the suitcase. We put in our organizer as I mentioned before.

This is our great tool for hanging the underwear, the socks, the nylons if you have to have a tie guys in here, scarf and so on, all go in this organizer with a clear panels, it’s our roaming dresser on the road. On the back side your dirty clothes go back here so it’s sort of your laundry basket, it rolls up and lies flat in the bottom of the suitcase, we’re adding about 12 to 14 ounces with this organizer, it’s a very worthy investment, we push the air out and so it fits in between the shoes and fills that cavern. If you decide you like our method, remember a couple of key things; we’re going to have our order of things are being pants, shorts, for women the skirts and the dresses next and then our tops.

For guys who keep it simple; pants and tops; so we start with our pairs of pants first, we have to alternate the direction every time you put a garment in. Zipper button is everything to its fullest so it holds its shape and with the pants that are long and narrow we put the legs together and this happens to be a zip off pair of pants so we’re actually kind of packing a pair of shorts and pants in one, put the legs together with the waistband up against one into the suitcase and let that hang out, alternate the next pants going in the opposite direction with a waistband here laying out the two garments.

So far we got our brown and our kaki and it kind of a dark siege color, this is going in the opposite direction and at home when you’re doing this you’ll find that if you got your wardrobe picked out on a doll on your closet then it go just as fast. I happen to have my friend Ji here helping me but it can work for you as well at home just taking this and having the wardrobe set aside and then put them in the suitcase.

We put our pair of jeans next, we don’t really like to have jeans but we’re going to allow one pair because you know you’re going to sneak them in. So we got 4 pairs of jeans laid out like this. We have our skirt and our dresses next, this is a full length skirt that can zipped off and become a short skirt so it’s again multiple outfits for packing with one garment, with the skirts and the dresses’ put the middle skirts in the middle of the dress in the middle of the bag, use the width of the bag now just like with your tops.
So the next skirt that I’m going to have passed to me we’ll lay out just like this skirt did here, the dress for lay out full length and if you’re neat about it, hand comb the wrinkles out then the tops come next, the tops go with the collar up against one side, the sleeves going where the pants legs are going, go back to it alternating the direction of the garment every time you pull one in, collar up against this side.

Tips of Flying with a Sick Child

Traveling with a child can be challenging enough, flying with a sick one is certainly twice the challenge. If there is no other option that to fly with a sick child there are things that you should do prior to the day of the flight. These are things we learned before flying with a sick child on our Yellowstone Park tours trip.

Here are some helpful and sensible tips you should do:

  • Take the child to the pediatrician and discuss the upcoming flight schedule. The doctor may give the go signal to travel but may also prescribe a few medications. You should buy what’s necessary and always heed the doctor’s advice.
  • Do not give your child aspirin without prescription from a doctor. If you are used to self-medication, do not do the same thing with your child. Guessing the right medication and the right dosage is not the most sensible thing to do. If you want the child to get well soon, then go to the medical professional.
  • Put all the medications and first aid kit on your hand-carry bag along with other remedy and treatment essentials for other possible ailments such as; motion sickness, food allergies, gas pain, constipation, teething and allergic reactions. Nasal sprays can be handy too as well as lots of tissues.
  • Make sure that you have all the things your child will need are easily accessible. Though the airport of the airline may have some medications and comfort items for a sick child, you should not rely on that. It is still better if you have your own supplies.
  • Have a blanket ready to keep him/her warm during the flight. The child’s favorite blanket and pillow can also provide additional comfort.
  • Bring the kid’s favorite toy too; sometimes, having something familiar eases discomfort and pains. If the child is old enough to read, then a favorite book is another option. It may not be advisable to let a sick child read while flying though.
  • Dehydration worsens the condition; therefore keep the child highly hydrated before and during the flight.
  • Be vigilant in taking the child’s temperature even during the flight, inform a flight attendant if the temperature goes over than manageable.
  • As much as possible, try to stay away from the rest of the passengers. Ask the airline people if they can seat you at the farthest seats.

Having a sick child on a plane is a very stressful situation to be in. It will take a lot of patience and energy. You also cannot expect the rest of the passengers to be totally understanding of the situation.  The airplane is a close space and the air only moves around. This means that the virus your sick child is carrying will be in the same air that everyone else is going to breathe.

You may hear complaints regarding your sick child, and this is the time when your patience could be challenged. So, a good tip is to cancel the trip if your child is sick. If cancellation is not possible, then take all the necessary measures to ensure that the child will be very comfortable during the entire journey.
