Well, you know that we all like to spend time with our family, our friends…In holidays or special occasions. And one of the best ways to enjoy a great time with them is camping, I suggest… To prepare for a perfect camping requires lots of things, but in this article, I will show you how to choose a specific tent for your camping in the next holidays.

People

How many people

First up you have to estimate that how many people would join in your camping. This is a very important step because it can affect your perfect camping plan.

There can be a group of three or even more. In this particular situation, I would say 10 people for example.

10 man is a big group so to be able to make plans, or aggregate all the ideas may take times, but don’t worry all the problems will be solved if you arrange them orderly in your mind.

Preparing

Choosing a tent man tent might be difficult. Obviously, that 10 men altogether in a small area but you still want them to be comfortable,  cozy. Well, how can we do that?

You should ask the seller (who sell camping equipment) to bring out all the choices for you. There could be different kinds of tent but with his (or her) support you definitely can choose the right one. Give him/her all information about your camping group( how many people will join, which material of the tent you like,…)

10 men tent can be very big but you should choose the one that can easily be disassembled because your group may have to carry it all the long way. So the lighter the tent is, the more energy you will save on your journey.

Material and structure

Material and Structure

Choose a tent that first up, have enough space for 10 people. All 10 people can all fit in it without any struggles.

A 10 tent can be disassembled or assembled easily by bars and nylon sheets. So that when your group gets to the camping destination, you guys can build the tent together.

You should choose tent made with denier fabrics, nylon, etc. to avoid having rain, wind, and snow. The door of the tent should have a mosquito net to avoid insects in case when you camp in the forest, the bottom should be sealed with seam tape to avoid leakage

The structure of the tent is really important because when you choose the wrong one, your tent may not be able to stand on the ground or stay in shape. So remember to take the tent which has iron or steel frame.

Set Up

It is obviously that setting up a tent may require lots of skills.  You have to be really careful to build a perfect one and to combine all the little part if the tent. It is even harder to set up a tent which contains 10 people.

The bigger the tent is, the harder setting it up will be. First up you and your friend have to find a flat position on the ground, spread up the seam tape and start to build your own tent. All the bars should be connected to each other for making the frame. Next up, spread all those bars through nylon sheets and spread it all up. When finishing it, you should pile driving all four corners of the tent to keep it fixed.

That all you need for your next camping with a group of 10 people.Take note all the directions above and start to realistic your camping plan.

As I’ve said before, you could find many good incubators on the internet by doing some research. Or you could build one on your own, there is also many guides for that option. A little advice for you if you’re looking for online products, it’s always better if you do some research about the product online and buy or test it in your local store. For home users, an incubator with the price range around $50 would be more than enough to satisfy your needs. And it doesn’t matter whether your incubator is purchased or built yourself, here are some basic requirements that it must meet: Temperature: The temperature inside the incubator must always stay at 99.5oF, the eggs need a stable heat for it to be able to hatch. Too much or too little heat could damage the embryo inside. Humidity: The ideal humidity is around 40 to 50 percent on the first 18 days; and on the last day, the humidity should be around 65 to 75 since the egg temperature get higher in these days. Ventilation: You may not notice this but the egg shell is porous, therefore, it allows air to circulate and the fetuses could breathe easily.

Step 2: Choose your fertile eggs

Another important step when incubating eggs is choosing which egg will you use for incubation. The fertile egg must have these factors to be able to hatch. First, the shape of the egg must be even, it should have a round head and a little pointy head. It is the ideal shape for a fertile egg. And second, your egg shell must in a perfect state, there shouldn’t be any cracks on it. You must pay a good attention to this.

Step 3: Incubation

It usually takes about 21 days for the incubation process to complete. Although it only takes 18 days for the chick to take shape but it still needs time to complete its development. During the process, there is something you need to remember: Check the environment inside your incubator: Make sure your eggs are provided with enough heat, humidity, and air circulation. Hope you enjoy these little information that I’ve provided, check out more good stuff about chicken egg incubator by click here. Remember to turn the egg on the first 18 days, you could mark one side of the egg with an “X” so you’d know which one has been turned. The egg needs to turn so that the heat can be evenly distributed on both sides. Leaving your egg without turning it could damage the embryo and the egg shell. In final days when your egg is ready to hatch, you must stop turning the egg and lower the temperature inside since its temperature rise higher in these days.

Some tips to choose the most suitable mattress for you.

Choose mattress

A mattress is one of the most important items in your house since you will be spending about 7 hours a day on it. Choosing the incorrect one will have you wake up with neck or back pain and a not so good feeling. In this article, we will give you some small tips and things to look out for when buying this sleep equipment. They certainly won’t help you choose the best there is on the market, but rather, they will prevent you from making a bad choice. Here they are:

1/ Research online

Research online

The internet is a really powerful tools and using them just to look at pictures of cat really devalues its capacity. Do a quick tour around the web to find out about the types, brands and popular price range currently on the market. This will help you get a better idea of what you are going to buy and avoid being scammed into buying it at a “discount” price.

2/ Consult your doctor

If you have any particular health condition, it is a good idea to ask for some advice from your doctor. They are certainly not experts in this field; however, they do know very well your physical condition and give advice based on that. Then, you can tell this to the clerk and he or she will single out the most suitable options for you.

For example, if you have a back condition, it would not be a good idea to choose a firm mattress or box spring. This is because research indicates that for low back pain, medium firmness is a much better option

3/ Test it

Testing mattress

You should do some research online but you should always buy this in person. This is so that you can test it yourself to see how it feels. Our advice is to lie down for 10 to 15 minutes. This thing will cost you a lot so take all the time you need to make sure that it is right for you. Don’t pay attention to everyone else in the shop or the clerk telling you to hurry up. If you are going to buy a bed for two, both of you should test it out together.

4/ Adjustability

If you want to adjust the firmness of your bed according to your mood, this is the way to go, i.e. an air mattress. This will allow changing the firmness by decreasing or increasing the level of air inside. If your partner’s sense of firmness is different, there are even beds with two different air containers. This will allow each of you to adjust the firmness according to your personal preference.

5/ Ask everything

If you want to know something just open your mouth and ask the clerk. You are in a position of power, not them. Ask them about the warranty, the trial period (if any), and other additional costs (e.g. shipping). Read everything to the words to fully understand your rights and obligations.

6/ Investment protection

If your mattress is damage beyond what is stated in the contract, you will lose the warranty. Therefore, do purchase some kind of protective cover for your mattress. It is much cheaper than losing your warranty, right?

For this type of exercise, you will need something that increases your heart rate. The most popular choices are stationary bike, treadmill machine, jumping rope or trampoline.

As for treadmill machine, depend on your budget plan and personal space, you can choose to have a big one or a small one. Right now there are machines that have many diverse workout modes that allow you to train according to your fitness level. They also have a monitor displaying all the body statistics such as: calories burned, duration of training, heart rate, etc. If you want to see how well you perform over time, do consider buying this type of machine.

As for stationary bike, there are two types: a regular bike and a recumbent one. A regular stationary bike is for everyone while a recumbent one is better suited for people with back problems. Like the treadmill machine, it has many different modes of workout and a monitor indicating your progress. Please take a look at this recumbent exercise bike reviews to get a better idea of what to buy.

Regarding the rope, if you are just a beginner, any rope will do you just fine as long as it is durable. The details don’t matter until you get more advanced. At the level, you should choose a light one to train your speed or if you want to add more strength to your feet, go with a heavier rope.

Trampoline: A great exercise for training rebound and a fun one at that. If you don’t feel like walking or running, jumping on a trampoline will give you a brand new feeling. Therefore, you will be more likely to stick to it.

2/ Weight exercise

Dumbbell: the amount of exercise you can do with this equipment is endless; therefore, a pair of these is your top priority. You should look for hexagon shaped dumbbells with rubber coating instead of round ones as the latter tends to roll away. A set of 3 – 5 dumbbells of different weights is highly recommended for a wide range of exercises.

Pull-up bar: a very effective device for increasing strength. You could have it mounted on doorways or on your wall. If you can’t do even one pull-up just yet, buy a resistance band to facilitate the process.

Barbell and plates: you cannot call it a home gym without these. This will train your coordination very effectively. You should look for a sturdy one and, if you have small hands, pay attention to the thickness of the handle.

Notes

You should also purchase a music player. This will make your workout more exciting and give you additional mental power to carry on.

Bury an above ground pool

Do you want to own a swimming pool right at home? Are you lacking the financial means to pull it off? Do you prefer your pool to be in ground rather than above ground despite the cost?  If so, then you ought to consider buying an above ground pool and sinking it to the ground. Sounds good, right? If you want to hear more about this matter, please keep on reading.

To properly sink an above ground pool into the ground, there are some basic guidelines that you need to follow and they are:

1/ Halfway only

Halfway only

When you only put it halfway down, you will have less risk of the dirt caving in when you want to drain the pool. If you have a strong foundation in the yard, then go down as low as you want. If not, going down halfway is your best bet.

Some people even build the supporting wall around the pool, but that kinda defeats the purpose of saving money when sinking it to the ground. What you need is just a wooden deck around the pool. It is cheaper while provide the same security level for your pool.

This will also help the pump to work properly. Above ground pump cannot draw water up. If you put the pool all the way down, you will have to buy another in ground pump. Therefore, to save cost, go down halfway only

2/ Bigger hole

It needs to be this way because an above ground pool is assembled on site. If there are no space left, workers cannot set it up properly. As a guideline, the hole should be 1.5 times bigger than the size of your pool and it has to be bigger evenly on all sides of the pool. If your ground is loose or unstable, make the hole a bit bigger than 1.5 times. This will make room for some accidental caving in halfway through the process.

3/ When to backfill

Backfill

Common sense will tell you to backfill right after the pool is full of water. Indeed, backfilling the dirt when the pool is empty will cause the ground to cave in and distort the pool. Nobody wants that to happen. Therefore, fill the pool with water and then backfill so that the water pressure will keep the pool intact. Leave some piles of dirt close to the hole so that you can do it easier

That should be everything. For reading this article, we present you with the list of the best above ground swimming pool. We hope it will be of use to you when deciding which pools to buy.

Down comforter is famous for its comfort and warmth. A good quality comforter can last for 2-3 without a wash or dry clean. But eventually, you’ll have to clean your comforter. So the most common question that I’ve been asked is “can you wash a down comforter at home”. The answer is yes, you can do that but it’ll take more time than just going to a dry clean store. In this down comforter at downcomforterguides, I’m going to show you how to always keep your comforter in good shape and how to clean it at home.

Keep your comforter in shape

Put away when unused If you aren’t going to use your comforter for a long time, you should wrap it up and put inside the comforter bag. Store it somewhere clean and dry. The next time when you use it, you won’t need to dry clean or wash it.

Clean the cover frequentlyThe cover is where it has most stain and scratch. You should often care for your cover. And clean it immediately when you see any stains.

Don’t sit or lay on your comforterThis will flatten the down fill inside. And doesn’t matter how good is your down fill, sitting on it will still cause the down to fall apart.

Clean your comforter once a few yearsNormal down comforter needs to be clean after 2-3 years of use. For high-quality products, you only need to clean them every 10 years.

How to clean down comforter at home

Step 1 – Remove the down comforter

Carefully remove your comforter from the bed. Put it in a dry, clean place to start washing. You could hang it on and give it some taps to remove the dirt.

Step 2 Use a front-loading washing machine

Make sure that your washing machine is big enough for your comforter. Consider the weight before you put it in. Better use a large washing machine to do this. If you don’t have it, you should go to your local laundromat. Remember to choose the largest washing machine to leave a little space inside.

Step 3 – Gently wash your comforter

Add in mild laundry detergent, use warm water to wash your comforter. Hot or cold water can easily damage the down fill. Add bleach in if your comforter is white. But you wouldn’t want to do this if your comforter is colored. Choose the soft fabric mode, rough spin can easily damage the shape of the comforter.

Step 4 Use the rinse cycle twice

This is to make sure that your comforter is clean and to remove any extra excess.

Step 5 – Dry your comforter

You shouldn’t use the spin dry in the washing machine. It’s not good for your down fill. Doing this can make your comforter loose its softness and fluffiness. Consider air dry it in a dry and clean area.

But if you want to save time by using the dryer machine, remember this. Set the temperature at a low setting to avoid your comforter from shrinking. You can do this couples of times to make sure that it is all dry. Use your finger to feel for clumps. If there are clumps inside your down comforter, it is probably because the down fill inside hasn’t dried yet.

Step 6 Fluff it out.

After fluffing your comforter, place it back to your bed. The whole process would take about 4-6 hour. Make sure you have enough time for it.

football-shoesIn football, a pair of cleats accounts for half of the gear you are going to need in order to play the game. With importance like that, spending money on a pair of good shoes for yourself is never a waste. What’s left is to know how can you buy the most suitable pair for you because there thousands of models, brands and styles on the market right now. In this article, I will show you some information you need to keep in mind when purchasing this piece of footwear.

Firstly, the money

the-moneyHow much money are you willing to spend on this piece of equipment, which you are going to use very often for a very long time? I’d say a reasonable amount, not too expensive, but not too cheap either relative to the thickness of your wallet. Since you are going to use it very often, spending a few extra bucks for a high-quality pair is not a waste, not at all. A high-quality pair like giay nike or adidas can make your feet feel comfortable and aid you a lot in the game, so why not?

Personal preference

Because you are going to spend money on them, might as well choose the pair that satisfy all of your personal preference such as style, color, brand, etc. That way, you will be more satisfied with your purchase and maybe, as a psychological effect, feel much more confident in them as well.

Style of play

Do you prefer dribbling the ball with stunning speed down the wing or do you prefer long pass over the defenders? For each style of play, there are hundreds of pair of shoes designed to do the job. The difference may not be much but it does give you an edge over your opponents, only a slight edge but still better than nothing. Therefore, keep this in mind when you go and search for your pair.

The surface of the field

Again, for every type of field, there are hundreds of pairs of shoes that are suitable for the job. If you intend to play mostly on soft, grass field, a pair with long studs or spikes at the bottom is highly recommended as it will increase friction with the surface, which will increasing your balance. For harder surface like artificial grass, a pair with shorter studs is more advisable. Now, if you have to switch between the two types of surface all the time, do consider buying both types. You money won’t go to waste, I can assure that.

With countless of models and brands currently on the market, choosing the perfect one will not be easy, I’d say. Sometimes, many people just go in the shop, try a few pairs, decide right away which one to buy and gradually learn to like it by slowly adapting to it. You could do the same but taking the time to do some research beforehand will keep you better informed of what you are going to buy. You could even find some promotional campaign for the product that you are going to buy.

That was it from us. Have fun playing football!
