Summer - the favorite time of endless picnics and all sorts of attacks on the environment. What is the route you are accustomed - chalet, cottage or just a trip out of town - not just in principle. Much more important is the organizational part: the more thoroughly prepare, the better the rest.
If a friend came in the way
Some people prefer to noisy gatherings, others like - travel in close family circle, and someone generally feels like a fish in water in any company. Remember, if the number of guests is too large, it is unlikely to truly relax in natural surroundings. In addition, sometimes it happens that seems to be the number of those present, there are not small, but fun this does not make ...
What we take
Tent, boat, fishing, biking, ball, racquet or tennis, for example, a samovar ... List all the possible components of the equipment is unlikely to succeed, to the same preferences to all, again, totally different. Not to forget that without which rest may be boring and not so interesting as we'd like, think in advance that you would normally take with you on a trip or whatever you like, the last time was not enough.
For the usual feasts in the fresh air will not prevent mats (ideal - insulation), bedding, tent or blanket. Table (in his absence) will serve as an ordinary disposable cloth or oilcloth. Dishes are also more convenient to take a plastic or paper. Do not forget about napkins, plenty of space as they do not, and without accounting for tight ...
Campfire and meat
Someone carries with it a set of barbecue, others recognize only the traditional way - BBQ or ordinary bricks. With regard to fuel, the increasing popularity of charcoal, which is available in all supermarkets. Will fit the usual dry branches, if you believe that recently there was no rain, and they are not expected in the near future, and that foundation in place for the fire will be found without any problems. For example, in our steppe areas, is sometimes faster to get to the nearest store for a packet in the coals than to find at least a minimal amount of twigs and sticks. Accordingly, do not forget money ignition.
What is the marinade for shish kebab to choose: the mayonnaise, vinegar, mineral water or wine - a matter of taste. All the recipes at once, and you name it. While your company probably find someone who will take on this important matter and pampers you with delicious chunks of excellent meat. That's just be careful with the ingredients, do not forget, sometimes it's better not to report, rather than vice versa.
What to eat
At present, the range of the food market is so large that restrict the list of some specific products rather problematic. How to take an edible stocks, depending again on the number of people, vacationers appetite (as in nature, as we know, has always eaten a lot more), and of course the time you expect to spend on the trip. Picnic can be soft, but take a moderate amount of beer, wine or something stronger - it is not forbidden. The main thing - do not lose a sense of proportion.
To eliminate all the possible unpleasant situations that could pose a rest in the field, do not bring perishable foods that are very rapidly evolving pathogens and harmful bacteria - warn doctors. To those in the first place include meats, dairy products and eggs. If something like that was among your inventory, try to eat it within two to three hours. Otherwise - it is better not to risk it and ruthlessly discarded.
All products that will make your menu during the holiday should be well done, preferably at home. Safer to cook the main dish itself. If you buy them in stores - be sure to save the temperature regime, which is indicated on the packaging or labels. Do not be lazy or take food containers termosumki. They will extend the shelf life is taken from the product. Be careful with tucked salads, which are also perishable products.
I do not want to think about sad things, but still worth to insure and take on the road with a first-aid. Composition of the kit may vary, but there must be a place with bandages, plasters, medicines for the prevention of intestinal infections (activated charcoal or smectite), and antipyretic drugs for colds (acetylsalicylic acid, paracetamol, a combination of drugs in powder form). In addition, the arm will not prevent the funds from insect bites. People who suffer from allergies, be sure to carry antihistamines in the form of tablets and nasal sprays. If you still do not trouble you went around the party not too lazy to seek help from medical professionals.
