First Aids Basics for Camping

Knowledge is Power

If you are setting off on a long trip, we recommend taking a short course on basic first aid that involves practicing how to clean and bandage different kinds of wounds, dealing with dehydration or stomach bugs, and broken bones and sprains.

A good first aid kit contains items that assist with different first aid requirements. Here are some categories to keep in mind.

Cleaning, Sterilising and Disinfecting

No wound should be considered minor when living outdoors. A small scratch or cut can quickly turn into something serious if ignored. Your kit should contain:

  • A disinfectant like Dettol, to clean dirt from a wound and sterilise it before treatment.
  • Anti-bacterial and anti-septic wipes to wipe small cuts and scratches.
  • Clean water for washing wounds. Drinking water should always be available in plenty to hydrate a patient and reduce stress.
  • Alcohol or non-alcohol-based hand sanitizers are always useful. Prevention is better than a cure, so using sanitizers often can keep your hands clean and prevent bacteria from entering the body.

Wrapping and Bandaging Materials

Outback Tracks highly recommends practicing how to wrap and bandage different kinds of wounds. In stressful situations like medical emergencies, practice and training can help both you and the patient stay calm. Ensure that your kit has a range of bandages and wraps for any kind of wound.

Include band-aids of different sizes and materials to help cover the smallest cut or scratch.

Gauze pads and bandages come in handy for sealing cuts and wounds that are deep and likely to bleed. Pressure bandages are an excellent way to cover serious wounds for a longer period of time, until expert medical attention is found.

Sports tape is very useful for providing stability to sprained ankles or wrists. A mild sprain in the wild can turn into a very painful experience if left unattended and can severely hamper movement.

Adhesive tape if often overlooked but is extremely important to hold dressings in place. Duct tape if often suggested, but this can be extremely painful when used directly on a patient’s skin.

Important Additions For Your First Aid Kit

First Aid isn’t only about cuts, wounds and sprains. Here is a list of other items that should be included to ensure no one in your group experiences discomfort on a long trip.

Sunscreen with a rating of at least SPF 30+

Sunburn ointment is a must to reduce the pain of a burn which can be very uncomfortable and painful. Consider aloe vera for milder burns and itches.

If members of your group are dependent on medication, it is important to check their prescription and carry extra of each medication, stored separately if need be in case the kit is lost or damaged.

Basic painkillers and paracetamol should not be overlooked, consult a doctor to know which over the counter medication you should carry.

Diarrhoea and constipation medicine is a must, especially if cooking outdoors or camping near a possibly contaminated water source.

Mosquito repellant can be a life saver, along with other insect repellants which are non-toxic and non-allergic.

Top Caravan Camping Tips for Beginners

There’s nothing quite like pulling out of your driveway, ready to hit the open road by yourself or with your family with a caravan home in tow. The feeling of endless possibility and powerful sense of adventure can be intoxicating. A caravan adventure is for the whole family, and in preparing for one, certain things need to be carefully considered to make sure things go smoothly. Here are some of our best tips to make your journey as smooth and exhilarating as possible!

The All-Important Checklist

Not the most exciting way to begin planning for a trip, but we can’t stress this one enough. Get a pen and notebook and start making your checklist that you can keep referring to. We are still always surprised at how much we need to buy before hitting the road, so here’s a list of commonly forgotten essential safety items to get you started!

Fire extinguisher

Spare tyre

Wheel jack

Brake-controller

First-aid kit

Medications

Mosquito repellent

Personal Water Purifier

Coolant

Oil

Fan belt

Duct tape

Tools

Tyre pressure

Your checklist is your friend! Make sure you keep updating it, adding to it, and crossing things off only when they are on board your vehicle and ready to go!

The Importance of a Clear Driving Strategy

Patience is the key to a long caravan journey. Driving with a caravan in tow takes some getting used to as both steering and handling feel very different on all kinds of roads. Driving at a slow, steady pace is an excellent way to keep your average speed up and cover long distances quickly. This is also the best way to conserve fuel and keep your costs down.

Always plan to leave early in the morning. This may be difficult for some, and there are always delays, but it is best to be on the road during daylight hours for better visibility. We recommend driving during the hours when you are most alert, wrapping up your drive for the day as evening sets in so you can rest and recuperate. Night time journeys take a lot more energy per hour of driving and mistakes become much more likely.

Involve Your Companions in The Journey

Interpersonal dynamics are fascinating to observe on long journeys. A road trip can bring out the best and worst in all of us, so it is important to be aware of and attentive to not only the needs of others, but yours as well. Consider what each person brings to the table and let them take ownership of a particular task or responsibility during the trip. If someone is navigating, help them with everything they need to make their job easier. Give children small responsibilities that keep them engaged and occupied on long journeys. If you are the only one driving, don’t load yourself up with too much to do. Make everyone part of the process of turning the trip into something truly special.

What are Door Latch Extensions Used For?

What are Door Latch Extensions Used For

Modern caravans have come a long way in the last few decades. With better technology and more amenities than ever, they are designed for long range travel and different levels of comfort and luxury.

There is, however, a seemingly small but common problem in nearly all caravan designs. The main window is difficult to keep open when the main door is also open. When the weather is beautiful, its nice to be able to keep the door and windows open for extra ventilation, and being unable to do so can make this small design issue a frustrating feature of your trip.

Luckily, an incredibly simple solution to this problem is the Door Latch Extension available at the Outback Tracks store. Here’s how it works!
Standard design in most caravans means that the window of the main living area is too close to the door frame. Most manufacturers use a short latch that fits perfectly into the door frame, but are too short or have no system of adjustment.

Door Latch extensions like the ones we stock give you the ability to extend the length of your door latch, allowing you to keep your door and window open at the same time, without any modifications.

Although they look simple, the Door Latch extension is made in Australia from 30% fiberglass, making it incredibly durable and subtle in appearance.

Each Door Latch extension comes with an easily adjustable twist lock nut that lets you shorten the length of your latch just the way you like it. Designed with a spacer ring which allows it to be fit on any sized caravan door latch, the extension was designed with all kinds of caravans in mind. It fits neatly into the wireframe latch found on most caravans and has enough adjustable clearance for even the longest caravan windows.

Once you use this simple extension, you won’t be able to imagine life without it. Use this to open up your windows and doors on a humid camping day, or give yourself plenty of ventilation when cooking in the kitchen. Enjoy up to 280mm of latch extension, allowing you to open a caravan window to its full length. Sometimes, a simple, subtle piece of equipment can add something special to your camping experience and put a smile on your family’s face!

Ultimate Guide to the Most Useful Camping Gear

Camping Gear, Recommended by Experienced Campers

You could spend many hours (and far too much money) looking through endless lists featuring attractive new camping gear. We’ve been through it ourselves, making purchases that seemed perfect at the time, only to realise how impractical they were in the field. Outback Tracks saves you time with a short but sweet list of useful camping equipment that we absolutely love.

Personal Water Filter

No matter where your journey takes you, it is always recommended that you carry a supply of fresh, drinkable water stored in an appropriate container. Even with a good supply of water, things can always go wrong and you may find yourself in a situation where extra measures have to be taken. Dehydration can set in quickly and can cause the mind and body to deteriorate quickly, impairing the ability to think and act quickly. Always keep a personal water filter handy which filters 99.999% of all contaminants, allowing you to drink from a water from a source that would ordinarily be too dangerous to consume.

High Visibility Head Lamp

Carrying a flashlight for a camping trip is always important. But most of us don’t consider how inconvenient it can be to have one hand occupied with a light while trying to tie down a strap or fix an awning in darkness. A simple solution would be to invest in a comfortable head lamp with a high luminosity (300 lumens is plenty). Head lamps usually come with plenty of battery power and really make life a lot easier by keeping both your hands free.

Solar Panel Charger

We know the feeling, all you want is to be left to yourself in the great outdoors, away from the modern life. But there’s a family waiting at home, a potential work email that needs your attention. You can’t just turn your phone off and tune out. Instead of carrying multiple battery packs, or turning your vehicle on once a day to charge up your phone, consider a solar panel charger with a fast charging port so you can stay connected in a simple, easy way.

Portable GPS Device

For the truly adventurous, who like to roam well beyond the reach of cell phone towers, there is nothing better than a dedicated GPS navigation and communication system. A well-built device should come preloaded with maps, high visibility for ease of use during night time, long battery life and easy connectivity to find help during emergencies. No off grid traveler should leave home without it.

Ground Dogs G2 Rollout Awning Anchor Kit

While it may be called an awning tie down kit, we believe that the G2 Kit is versatile enough to make any tie down requirement easy. The convenient canvas zip bag contains 6 marine steel grade screw in pegs, wing and hook collars, strap retaining clips, hi-viz cam buckle straps, safety springs and more. It has everything you need to tie down a tent, awning, roof luggage or even a makeshift tarp in an emergency situation. Never leave home without it!

How to Tie Gear to the Roof Racks

A Word of Caution

A lot of vehicles these days come with roof racks which look like they can carry anything and everything you need. However, each car has a specific loading limit that it can sustain, the owner’s manual of the car should have this weight clearly mentioned.

SUV’s and minivans can handle much greater loads than roof racks on sedans and coupes. Carefully consider the amount of weight that your vehicle can take and always stay below the recommended limit.

How To Tie Gear To The Roof Rack

Successfully tying your gear to the roof begins with choosing the right straps. While many recommend bungee cords because of their flexibility, this is precisely what makes them wrong for the task. Bungee cords can break easily, and their flexibility means that the load can move around from side to side while traveling. Bungee cords tend to become stretched and lose their shape with heavy loads, making them useless for future use.

We recommend premium quality tie down straps with ratchet attachments which provide greater strength and hold over the load.

Begin by placing all your luggage and gear on the rack so that the heaviest load is low and in the middle of the rack. Avoid putting anything too heavy on the sunroof.

Run the tie down strap over the load, looping it down and around the roof rack, to the other side of the car where it can be tightened using the ratchet. Be sure to use a long strap which will allow for a second pass over the load if need be. Be careful not to tighten the ratchet too much as this can crack certain roof racks. The idea is to create a loop, which when tightened, pulls the load down towards the roof of the car.

When you have tightened the straps, step back and inspect your luggage from every side, making sure that the tie down strap is looped through and properly holding down all your gear.

Grab the load with both hands and rock it back and forth to see if it moves around. Remember that the center of gravity of your vehicle changes when you add weight to the roof. If the load moves around on the roof, it needs to be looked at again. We suggest getting used to driving with the roof load before starting your trip, checking whether it is fully secure after a few minutes of driving. Keep in mind that the car will handle differently with weight on the roof, so practice with it to get used to braking and steering, especially on expressways.

If you don’t have a roof rack, using nylon straps which can pass down through your car windows and into the cabin is the best way. However, it is always better to install premium after-market roof racks instead of improvising a tie down system without one. Don’t have any other option? Make sure the straps pass over the load more than once, and give them a twist when extending into the car to reduce flapping and noise from wind.

When Should I Tie Down My Caravan Awning?

Why Do I Need a Tie Down Kit?

An awning tie down kit may sound so simple that it may seem unnecessary. However, experience has shown us that you can never be too sure when it comes to the great Australian outdoors and its ability to throw any number of challenges at you, quite suddenly.

It is very important to keep your awning tied down so you can leave your caravan without worrying about it. Securing your awning also adds extra protection during sudden strong winds which can cause strain on your awning mechanism and damage it over time.

Safety First

Before we share more awning tie down tips, we should mention that it is very important to not leave your awning out in dangerously windy conditions. Always pull an awning back to storage position if the winds are too strong as no tie down kit can guarantee complete stability and protection in extreme conditions. In some cases, an awning can fill with air and become like a huge sail, which can break awning material as well as damage the frame.

Sometimes it just rips the awning material itself, but other times it can even damage the awning frame too.

If you enjoy camping in rainy conditions, keep one side of the awning (the front) slightly lower than the back so prevent rainwater from pooling in the middle of the awning and causing damage to the material and frame.

When To Tie Down

A question we are asked often is, when should my caravan awning be tied down? Our answer is, always! While extreme winds which can damage your awning suddenly are rare, things can change quickly and it never hurts to have extra protection in place.

When choosing a tie down kit, be sure to go with a product which suits your caravan’s Awning. Some caravans and Motorhomes have European style awnings or Electric Awnings that require a different Tie Down kit than the stronger Rollout barrel awnings that can withstand stronger winds and rain.

There are several ways to use your tie down kit to secure an awning.

For Electric and European style awnings like Fiamma & Thule.

The ideal kit required is the Ground Dog Awning Tie Down Kit. These awnings are lightweight and should not be left out in very strong winds. So, the kit required is very simple, Two Tie Down straps, safety springs & two ground dogs are all that are required.

For All Rollout Barrel type awnings, such as Aussie Traveller, Carefree & Dometic

A much more comprehensive Awning Anchor kit is required.

These kits give you the optimum holding power for large awnings as well as allowing you options on how to can set up your awning. The leg Anchor Plates supplied in this kit allow you to stand one or both Awning legs vertically while securely anchoring each leg with two Ground dogs securing each leg. This gives you more room to spread out under your awning as well as removing the risk of hitting your head on the awning legs when attached to the side of your caravan or motorhome.

If leaving your awning legs attached, simply attach the Tiedown straps & Safety Springs & drill in your Ground Dogs around a metre in front of the Awning barrel.

In very rainy conditions where the ground becomes very soft or in very sandy soil the team at Outback Tracks recommend switching over to their Ground Grabba sand pegs, these are specially designed for these conditions.

Remember, while Ground Dogs are designed to be used in the widest range of soil types, no peg will cover every ground type, that is why Outback Tracks recommend carrying a set of Sand pegs in your kit.

In every case, we recommend the Ground Dog awning tie down kit with screw-in pegs which are made with high grade stainless steel and have a wider, tapered thread that allows them to gain a powerful grip in almost any kind of terrain.

A good quality caravan awning frame, held in place by a premium tie down kit can withstand almost anything that mother nature can throw at it.

Camping on the Coast – How to Prepare

Camping on the Australian coastline is one of the most amazing outdoor experiences the country has to offer. Whether it’s about watching the sun go down as your campfire comes to life or enjoying a quiet cookout with family and friends by the ocean under the moon light, camping by the beach has something for everyone.

To ensure a truly memorable experience, the team at Outback Tracks has put together a handy list of things to consider before hitting the sandy beaches. Here’s how best to prepare for a coastline adventure.

Protect Your Phone

Even in the great outdoors, your smartphone will be with you, no matter where you go. It can be a great tool for navigation and your best bet in an emergency situation. Protect your phone from sand and moisture by keeping it in a simple zip lock bag.

Camp

Setting up a camp in sand is easy enough if certain factors are taken into consideration. When choosing a spot, always ensure that the ground below is not too damp or loose. Pick a location which is beyond the high tide water mark. This is a situation where the quality of your tent pegs will really show. We recommend the Ground Grabba screw-in sand pegs which have an aggressive bite and taper to them, making them perfect for drilling into sand. Get your hands on local tide charts and check the weather forecast to know as much as you can about the weather conditions you’re going to face.

Maintaining Your Equipment

Camping on beaches involves exposing your tie downs and Cam buckles to corrosive sand and salt water. Make sure that your equipment is properly cleaned and lubricated before and after your trip to keep it lasting for years.

Sun Shelter

You’ve set up your camp to keep you comfortable at night, but what about finding shelter during the day? Enjoying the coast means being exposed to the sun which can be extremely harsh during certain times of the year.

The team at Outback Tracks highly recommends securing any sun shelter when on the beach weather it’s a Gazebo, Car awning or a simple tarp canopy Ground Dogs sand pegs are the best way to anchor your shelter for shade to relax in during the day.

Building a Camp Fire on the Beach

Building a campfire on sand can be challenging because of the strong winds that blow across the beach. To get your fire going, dig a large circular pit about half a foot deep and line it with rocks to create a wind barrier that will give you a chance to get your fire going and prevent it from burning out too quickly.

If you have a fire pit it’s also a good idea to place it in a hole and form a mound of sand on the side the wind is coming from to ack as a wind break.

How to Care for Tie Downs and Cam buckles

Most of us are city dwellers, which means that experiencing the great outdoors is something of a special occasion, something we get to do once in a while to get away from the drudgery of urban spaces. At Outback Tracks, we are passionate about everything camping related. We encourage our customers to go for the best quality equipment that their budget allows, to reduce maintenance and replacement of gear. Having said that, regular maintenance of your equipment will help it last longer, and prevent unwanted surprises when you go camping.

Tie Down Straps:

Regular maintenance and cleaning of tie down straps will ensure that they maintain their strength and safety for several years.

Begin by inspecting the straps closely. Look for obvious signs of damage like holes, knots and tears. Make sure to look for more subtle wear and tear. Broken stitching may not seem like much at first, but can get significantly worse over time. Check to see if the fabric has been faded by sun damage. Inspect the stitching at load bearing points carefully, ensuring that the ratchets and buckles are not cracked or rusted. Unusual wear patterns in the webbing, especially at load bearing points could be a sign that replacement is necessary.

We believe that the best way to maintain straps and reduce maintenance is to keep them clean. No need for expensive products, we recommend a mix of mild detergent and warm water. Use a good scrub brush to dislodge dirt and debris. Always avoid bleach or any product that could corrode the straps. Here’s a pro tip, after washing, don’t forget to hang the straps so they can dry thoroughly, this will help prevent mildew and fungus once they’re in storage. The best way to store straps is to roll them up and store in your kit bag.

Cam buckle Maintenance:

Cam buckles are an important part of any tie down setup. They come in many different types, sizes and materials.

Cam buckles are usually galvanized or made with stainless steel.

Make sure to check load bearing points for cracks and dents regularly. For those living near the coast, stainless steel is a better option since saltwater can corrode galvanized turnbuckles within no time.

Cam buckle maintenance can be very easy if carried out immediately after use and stored correctly. We recommend a simple combination of WD-40 and a fine microfiber cloth to wipe away debris, lubricate the mechanism and also prevent rust and corrosion.

Tips for Tying Down Your Camping Equipment Properly

Tie Down Your Awning The Right Way

Setting up camp can seem a bit intimidating at first. You find yourself standing there, tie down kit in hand, wondering where the first peg should go, how the straps are supposed to tie to the awning that’s above your head. Luckily, Outback Tracks has you covered. We’ve been through it all in the Outback, so here are some tips on how to secure your equipment with the easy-to-use Ground Dog awning tie down system.

Make sure your caravan or motorhome is level, use levelling ramps if necessary. This simple step can make all the difference to your setup.

Make sure you use the stabiliser legs before continuing to set up your awning.

Before raising your awning attach the shorter tie down strap over the Barrel or Cassette part of the awning, by passing the cam buckle around and through the pre-made loop at the end of the strap.

Choose the right angle for your awning, remembering to angle it downwards slightly if there is a chance of rain. A straight awning could fill up with rainwater in no time and collapse.

Attach Safety Springs to the long webbing strap by passing the looped end of the strap through the one of the loops of the Safety Spring then passing the other end through the webbing loop & tighten.

Attach Tie down strap retainers to the end of the strap that will go through the cam buckle.

Now attach the free end of the strap to the shorter one making sure you put the strap through the cam buckle the correct way. Don’t tighten it yet.

Decide on the position of the Ground Dog screw-in peg and Hook Collar, Around 30cm in front of the legs on Fiamma & Thule Type Awnings and around a metre in front of barrel type awnings.

Once the Ground dog screw is in the ground, connect the Safety Spring to the Hook Collar.

HOT TIP: Sometime the ground can be as hard as concrete, keep a 12mm Masonry Bit with you and simply pre drill the hole! 

Tighten the Tie Down straps firmly being careful to only distort the Safety Spring slightly.

Repeat the process for the other end of the awning.

For Barrel type awnings, if you decide to stand you Awning legs vertically, use the leg anchor plates, simply attach the plate by passing it through and over the attaching bar on the bottom of the Awning leg then screw in a Ground Dog with Wing Collar through each hole in the plate.

If the ground is so hard that the you can’t drive the Ground Dog all the way in, don’t worry its doing its job, simply wind the wing collar down to the plate.

The World’s Best Tie-Down Camping Gear

When it comes to choosing the right gear to secure and hold down your campsite, settle for nothing less than the best. That’s why at Outback Tracks, we provide the best equipment and expertise to help you experience the best that Caravanning and camping gear can be.

Different types of Screw-in Peg kept on grass ground

Benefits of a Screw-in Peg

Common Types of Tent Pegs

It might not seem like much, but choosing the right tent peg can make or break your dream camping trip. Here are the pros and cons of the most common pegs on the market.

Bent Wire Pegs

These are the typical, stock pegs which come with every tent and awning. Bent wire pegs have a simple design and come in different lengths and thicknesses but they are limited in what they can do.

They are versatile enough to handle some of the challenges thrown at them, but come up short when used in sand. Heavy loads can easily bend them, especially when driven into hard ground.

Strike-Through Tent Pegs

Some strike-through pegs are designed to look like bent-wire pegs, giving them extra surface area to hammer down. But these are often no less prone to bending than a traditional bent-wire peg. All in all, not that much better than bent wire pegs. They are bulky and difficult to store.

Why Are Screw-In Pegs Better?

Probably the best innovation in camp set up equipment, screw-in pegs have excellent grip, are easy to insert, and smaller in size.

Screw-in pegs need a driver to be inserted, like a battery drill or impact gun, making them much easier to set up.

They come in plastic and metal, with different diameters, for various soil types. Screw-in pegs come with loads of attachments, so whether you’re looking to set up a ground tarp, tent, or awning, these attachments make it all possible.

Types of Screw In Pegs

Batten Screws and Coach Bolts have a small shaft that is small in diameter. The narrow thread and lack of tapering doesn’t provide sufficient traction in loose ground. The threads wear away easily and rust is a constant problem. Batten screws require constant replacing, and for all that effort, they’re not very effective.

While plastic screws might seem like a better option because of their lower weight and apparent ease of use, they just won’t last very long.

The head begins to wear away easily, the threads are not cut very deep, giving them less grip, and if you’re trying to camp in hard ground, they could simply snap.

Benefits of Ground Dog Screw-In Pegs

G2 Ground Dogs (our second generation) have been designed in Australia by Outback Tracks from the ground up. They can be used in the widest possible ground types, from soft sandy grass covered soil through to the hardest ground.

They are unlike all other so-called “screw in pegs”

They are not batten screws or coach bolts dressed up as screw in pegs!

Ground Dog screw-in pegs are purpose built to get you through any situation. The idea was to keep it simple, and improve upon a familiar screw-in design.

  • Made from marine grade stainless steel.
  • Tapered shaft allowing peg to “lock in” as it penetrates the ground.
  • No need to drive in at an angle.
  • Self-drilling tip for better penetration in hard ground.
  • Large LEFT-HAND thread for better holding power in.
  • Thread stops 20mm below head to allow Hook Collar to free rotate.
  • 19 mm head, so same socket as stabiliser legs can be used.
  • Manual winder for stabiliser legs can also be used.
  • Easy in, even easier to get out.
  • Each Ground Dog comes Cocomplete with a Hook Collar.

Ground Dog Screw in pegs are 250 mm long, making them the right length for all kinds of conditions. We prefer to travel light, so a length means we’ve got all possibilities covered, with less to carry.

Ground so hard you’re only able to get the peg in halfway into the ground? No problem, No need to try and force it in any further, it’s locked in, simply wind the locking nut down to ground level and you’ve got all the support you need.
