Winter has been warmer than usual this year in Queensland, and that means stories of snake encounters are already emerging. While snake encounters with poisonous varieties like the Eastern Brown are rare, you need to know how to avoid them when you take your first camping trip during the upcoming school holidays. The good news is a camping trailer means you're not sleeping in a tent on the ground, but the bad news is you may still see a snake.
Hello out there. I'm Jason. As an ecologist, I get to travel to some amazing places. I specialise in researching endangered animals, so my job can involve climbing mountains, travelling to remote islands or trekking through forests. Of course, the research can sometimes take weeks or even months. I am therefore always on the lookout for any new camping gear which helps me reduce any hardships. My fellow researchers often follow my lead in which gear to buy. In addition, I have quite a few adventurous friends who beg me to direct them to secret camping spots. I decided that this blog might be the best way to let people know some of the camping tips and tricks I've picked up. I hope that my experience proves useful for your next trip.
