Urban Camping With TUSHY

Urban camping is a great compromise for travelers who want to spend the night outside while still being close to the amenities and culture a new city offers. This new trend allows travelers to find shelter in parks and on rooftops and it’s a lot cheaper than a hotel.  Here are a few helpful tips for anyone who wants to try urban camping. 

  1. Find the Right Spot

Do your research and see what campsites are available in your city. If you’re looking for a view, rooftops are your best bet. If you want a more traditional camp atmosphere, see if there are any parks that offer camping permits or special camping events. We don’t want you to get arrested or to get mugged. 

  1. Research Your Site’s Perks

There are communities of urban campers out there that offer urban camping programs that include communal meals, guided hikes and public restrooms. Find out what is available to you and call ahead to see what perks you can get. Maybe you’ll find somewhere that offers electricity!

  1. Make Your List, Pack it Twice.

After considering what will be available to you, make a list of all the things you still need. Consider the weather, environment, and activities when packing your bags. The key is to get everything you need but still pack lightly. Get everything together a few days before in case you think of last-minute additions or realize you don’t have something you thought you did.

  1. Plan Your Menu

You probably won’t have access to a fire-pit, so the meals will have to get a little creative. Dry foods like oatmeal are ideal and great for breakfast. Jerky, protein bars, and bagels are great to help you through the day. If you don’t want to go without a hot meal, there are some flameless cooking devices on the market you can check out.

  1. Combat Hard Concrete

Sleeping on concrete is no bueno. Bring some extra bedding and pads to keep you from waking up with back pain. 

  1. Bring A little Extra Juice

As much as we want to rough it out, we can’t live without our phones. Bring a portable charger or two and make sure you use your phone wisely. 

  1. Spruce Yourself Up

You might not have access to running water, so consider alternatives until you can get reach a shower. Dry shampoo will help keep your hair fresh while you camp out on the concrete. 

  1. Keep Your Booty Clean

Speaking of sprucing yourself up, don’t leave home without your TUSHY Travel. You’re going to have to poop out there, and you're going to need to clean your butt and there is no better way to do that than with the TUSHY Travel, the collapsible and expandable portable bidet that fits discreetly in your backpack.
