Having spent most of my life within a couple of miles of the beach in pretty windy areas, I have learned some tried and tested things you can do (although I have never found it much of an issue in any case) Always point the opening of your tent downwind so sand doesn't blow in. This will prevent the majority of your sand-related problems. Keep sand from ...

Private camping is both allowed and nice on Masonboro Island which is North of Carolina Beach, NC and south of Wrightsville Beach, NC. You are close to civilization but the island is only reachable by boat which cuts down on the population - especially on weekdays and during off season. I don't know if you consider this Mid-Atlantic since it would be quite a ...

I'm not familiar with your specific tent, but you typically don't block ventilation in a double walled tent. The outer rain fly will collect condensation from your own breathing and the tent needs to breath to reduce it. You also need to seal the seams on a tent if the factory doesn't do it for you, and sometimes even when they do. You can find lots of ...

There is one thing about tents in general (well, at least I don't know any exception) - they are absolutely not waterproof!. The outer part simply soaks with water and leads it down to the ground. But if you touch it - you have a rain inside. It's just like touching the surface of the umbrella from the below. So there is one thing you must take very ...

If you are into sport climbing, Thailand has got to be the place. Specifically, check out Krabi or Railay, also anywhere that offers deep water soloing. The downside to Thailand is that you'll spend half the year looking for rock that isn't wet (i.e. during rainy season).

I go camping in the sand all the time. (see Rainbow Beach, QLD, Australia) The two best things to have are. 1) Small dustpan/brush - (or just the brush really).. use it to wipe dry sand off your feet before going into the tent, and as you're packing up, wipe things down. 2) Shade cloth - Used as a ground sheet at the door of your tent, or other areas of ...

If possible, don't pitch your tent on the sand - get back a bit into some vegetation. Then apply these strategies: set up your cook area well out of traffic and impose a strict no-running rule anywhere near the cook area. keep lids on everything you cook, to keep sand out keep a clean plate near the stove to put in-use (wet, sand can stick to) items like ...

There are two options. You could buy a 2-season tent, that would be light(er than a 4 season for sure) or a tent fly. A tent fly would be ideal as it would be very light but I wouldn't use in some places where there are animals dangerous wandering around during the night. A 2-season tent you can zip it up and sleep without the problem of snakes, scorpions ...

Have you looked into Assateague? It's just south of Ocean City, Maryland.

Popup tents are also known as 'festival' tents, and are frequently regarded as single-use disposable items! Shroptshire Star: Volunteers clear up V Festival debris - in pictures Most Vango tents are at the cheaper end of the price scale - They aren't all bad (my first proper camping experiences in the UK were in a Vango tent), but the 'popup' end of ...

Sand will be an inherently trickier environment to camp in successfully I would imagine, since it retains moisture well and isn't as solid as earth. Personally I've never camped in sand, but I would imagine even a bit of sand piled on the tent walls could be the cause, that would be the first thing I'd try to eliminate. If the sand is moist (or becomes ...
