The cabin life isn’t for everyone, but if you’re being dragged on one of your significant others fishing trips to Alaska, there are ways you can make it more enjoyable for yourself. Here are just a few ideas for the camping-phobic that can help them make the most of the cabin life.
Bring Some Creature Comforts. – Part of the appeal of camping is to escape all the screens for a while, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a few things along. Bring your e-reader and catch up your reading list. Take your iPod for some tunes, and even a small battery powered speaker to help you set the mood.
Feast Your Heart Out. – Camping is a vacation, so treat it like one. Enjoy yourself, and break away from your diet. You don’t have to look hard or far on the Internet for great cabin food ideas. There are camping recipes out there for such great foods as breakfast burger biscuits, pizza nachos, cinnamon sugar donuts, potato boats, Coconut Curry Soup, and even Fire-Roasted Salmon With Herbs and Lemon.
Maker Sure You Have a Comfy Place to Sleep. – The place you sleep is a place you don’t skimp on. Invest in a quality sleeping bag, one that’s well padded. Speaking of padding, you should also take a sleeping bag pad with you. There are foam ones out there, as well as air mattress ones, too. Both are comfortable, but usually people find one to be more so than the other. Also, sleep with the windows of your tent or cabin open. The crisp, clean, fresh air of the night is incredibly relaxing, and will help you sleep better.
Just because you didn’t initially want to go on any Alaskan fishing trips doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the cabin life. If you know of any other ideas to make the most of your time outdoors, feel free to share in the comments.
