How to choose a camping mattress/sleeping pad
We have known how to choose tents and sleeping bags, it is also necessary to choose a suitable sleeping pad. A good, suitable sleeping pad can make you more comfortable during camping Life. When camping in the winter, campers often wake up from the cold because they sleep directly on the floor mats. Sleeping pads can not only improve sleeping comfort but also prevent heat loss and keep warm. So when camping out overnight in winter, be sure to bring a suitable sleeping pad. How to choose a sleeping mat? Before answering this question, let’s solve some campers’ questions. Why can't you just wear a sleeping bag and sleep on the floor? Evaporation, convection, conduction, and radiation are four ways of losing heat from the body. The convection and conduction heat dissipation most because while you sleeping, you are lying down. If you sleep on the floor directly, you will feel cold whatever how thick your sleeping bag is, because the ground is constantly sucking your heat away. There is a large loss of heat, it may let you weakness on the second day, and the worst is direct loss of temperature at night. 1. Type of Sleeping pads Common sleeping pads can be roughly divided into three types: Foam sleeping pad Inflatable sleeping pad Self-inflatable sleeping pad Foam sleeping pad → Naturehike Potable Foma Camping Sleeping Pad → Naturehike Foam camping Mattress Foam sleeping pad is made of foam/high-density foam material, does not need to be inflated, just unfold it for use. There are many closed air holes inside the foam. They can be rolled up, or Z-folded.  The biggest advantage is that it is not afraid of being punctured, even if it is damaged, it still has the ability to block cold. Fold-able for storage, lightweight material, very suitable for mountaineering use.  However, it is not suitable for use in winter or cold mountains because of its thin thickness, relatively poor comfort, and average heat preservation effect, which cannot well isolate the cold and damp air. It can be used in combination with inflatable sleeping pads and automatic inflatable sleeping pads to achieve better thermal insulation and moisture-proof effects. Advantages: Lightweight, Low price, Durable Disadvantages: Relatively large volume, Poor comfort, Hard Inflatable sleeping pad → Naturehike Ultralight Lightweight Pad Camping Air Mattress → Naturehike 2P Multifunctional Camping sleeping pad Inflatable sleeping pads are becoming lighter and lighter, making them very suitable for backpacking. Many inflatable sleeping pads now also use warm materials or reflective materials to increase warmth.  The inflatable sleeping pad must be blown into the air by itself, or use an inflator(like air Pump/ Inflatable Bag) to inflate. If the air bed is larger, it can be matched with an electric inflator to facilitate inflating and deflating.  In addition to fabrics (some use thermal insulation materials), only air supports the internal structure and load-bearing capacity. In addition, it is easy for moisture to enter the mattress and shorten the service life.  The air layer can slow down heat conduction and insulate the body from contact with the cold ground, making it more suitable for use in cold environments. The storage of inflatable sleeping pads is also very simple, and the body is small, which is more convenient to carry than self-inflated mattresses.  This type of air bed is very light and suitable for backpackers, but it is not comfortable enough to cater to people who are used to sleeping sideways. Advantages: Relatively comfortable, Lightweight, Small footprint, and Easy to carry. Disadvantages: When the temperature is low, the ordinary air bed is generally insulated. The outdoor dedicated air bed uses a special insulation layer. If you have purchased an ordinary air bed, you can lay a layer of insulation under the air bed to enhance the insulation performance. If two people share an air bed, it is easy to interfere with each other. After all, one person turning over will directly cause airflow and affect the other person's sleep. Self-inflatable sleeping pad → Naturehike Single/Double Self-Inflating Camping Mattress The biggest difference is that in addition to air, there is also an insulation foam filling material, which plays a role of comfort and warmth. The body heat at night is less likely to be dissipated from the floor through the mattress. The self-inflating sleeping pad has an open-hole foam, which can Self open the sleeping pad so that the sleeping pad can inhale air to produce thickness. Usually, there is an air inlet and outlet. While you open the sleeping pad it will start to inflate automatically, and then lock the airport so that the air will not escape when you lie on the mattress. When storing, open the airport to squeeze out the air while rolling up the sleeping pad, and finally to lock the airport to prevent air from entering the sleeping pad. There are two types of Self inflatable sleeping pads: thin and thick. The first one is lighter and suitable for mountaineering, but it cannot keep warm. The thick sleeping pad is larger and heavier after storage, which is more suitable for general camping and family camping, and the comfort is much higher! Self-inflating mattresses on the market range from 3 cm to 15 cm. If you want comfort, especially if you like to sleep on your side, it is recommended to choose a thickness of 7.5 cm or more. Advantages: Warmth and support are better. Inflation is simple, just open the inflation valve and unfold the mattress. The air will fill itself through the inhalation valve. The comfort of the cushion can be adjusted by adjusting the air pressure. Disadvantages: The weight is relatively heavy, usually more expensive than ordinary foam cushions, and it is small without inflatable sleeping cushions. They are easily pierced or torn 2. What kind of camping? The sleeping mats used in different camping types are different. If you are more frequent mountaineering and camping, it is more suitable to choose a lightweight foam sleeping pad or a thin self-inflating sleeping pad. But if you are general camping or family camping, you do not need to carry sleeping pads when driving to the camp, and you want to sleep comfortably with your family and friends, then choose inflatable sleeping pads and thick inflatable sleeping pads as the main consideration. 3. Sleeping Pads size Choose the right size according to yourself, the number of people, and the camping situation. According to the number of sleeping mats that can be put in the tent, the width should be appropriately smaller than the inner account. This choice is safer Summarize So when choosing a sleeping pad, we need to consider these issues:  Type of Sleeping pads Size of sleeping pads Type of camping The same as choosing a tent and sleeping bag, it's better to experience it in the store. Hope it can help you to choose a suitable sleeping pad.

Home Gutter Maintenance
Cleaning gutters can be a daunting and dreaded task, but as we'll see in this article, it's a must! So read on to know more: How do I know if gutters need cleaning? Maybe the easiest way to see if your gutters need cleaning, without going up onto the roof, of course, is by looking up on a rainy day! If you see that the rain is flowing from anywhere except the drainpipe. If so, gutter cleaning is needed. But let's look at the other telltale signs: 1. Gutter sagging: You need to clean your gutters, so they don't clog with leaves and other dirt. Once they are blocked, the water can no longer flow away. So for every litre of water stuck in the gutter, 1 kilo is added. On long gutters, that, plus other debris, can sum up to a lot of weight! That extra weight causes extra stress, which can eventually break the guttering and cause it to sag. 2. Stained walls: After a rainy day, if you see streaks of dirt or unusual stains under your gutters, then chances are that the water is running over, bringing dirt along with it, as it has nowhere else to go. 3. Larger than usual puddles: The whole point of gutters is to take the water away from your house. If you see big puddles around your home, it could be a sign that the gutters are no longer taking that water away! 4. Birds and other animals: What do birds use to make their nests? Twigs? Leaves? Exactly, and a dirty gutter is full of both of them! So if you see a lot of birds coming and going from your gutters, especially around nesting season, you can be assured that your gutters need cleaning! What about other animals? They might not make the same nests, but many rodents will love to bunk down in a leaf bed! And what do rodents attract? Snakes, another good reason to clean your gutters! 5. Roof garden: If you see that flowers and other plants are sprouting from your roof guttering, the chances are that it's time for a clean! Why? Rotten leaves and other natural debris like dust make good makeshift compost. Compost and water = the perfect environment for your new roof garden! How often should gutters be cleaned? This is a more difficult question to answer. What if I asked you how long is a piece of string? (Twice as long as half its length, but that's for a more philosophical article!) Generally speaking, gutters need to be cleaned twice a year, but certain factors, like if you have overhanging trees, will mean you need to clean your gutters a lot more often! What happens if you don't clean your gutters? It might seem like a trivial matter, but if left uncleaned, it can cause significant problems! 1. It can cause foundation damage. In addition, heavy rains falling on the same stop will soften the soil and even erode the soil surrounding your foundations. This will cause cracks to appear. In the colder areas where it freezes, those cracks can fill with water, which will cause much more problems! 2. Trapped water + wooden building are a recipe for disaster! The dampness can cause the wood to root, weakening the structure. It can also allow rodents and other vermin to enter your house. 3. Creepy crawlies. The same rotten, humid debris that can make you a not so lovely roof garden can also attract all kinds of insects. Of course, if the weather changes for the worse, they'll look for a dry place to hide out, which will probably be inside your house! But that's the least of your insect worries! Insects like termites and carpenter ants are also are attracted to the rotten leaves, and once they've finished the starter, they will probably move on to the main course, your lovely wooden walls, windows, etc. 4. Roof and basement leaks. The excess water has to go somewhere, and that might be your roof space or even your basement! But, of course, this can cause more problems: rotten roof timbers, black mould, water damage, flooding, short circuits and so forth. How to clean your gutters? First of all, you should know that gutter cleaning can be a dangerous task! For example, did you know that 4.5 Australians die every year in ladder-related accidents? And many more are seriously injured! So make sure your ladder is safely placed. If you want to read more about height safety systems, take a look at my other article: Beginners guide to height safety systems or, better yet, talk to a professional about ladder brackets. Now I've warned you about being safe, let's get back to the subject at hand, gutter cleaning: 1. Wear the right clothes! Gutter cleaning is a dirty job! So it's best to wear a long-sleeved shirt, work trousers, and of course, gloves! You don't know what you're going to find up there. 2. You must also make sure that the ladder won't be leaning on the gutter, which could cause it to crack or push it out of place. And as we said before, make sure your ladder is safe and won't slip while you're working. 3. Slowly but surely, remove all debris from the gutter. Be careful not to use anything that might damage the gutter as you're cleaning it. You can buy specialised tools, but you can use an old rubber spatula from the kitchen. • TIP: You might want to place something on the floor below where you will be working, making cleaning up more straightforward once you've clean the gutters. 4. Once all the solid and semi-solid material has been removed, rinse the gutters with water, preferably using a hosepipe. Doing this will also help you find any leaks. 5. Does anything need repairing? Sagging or loose gutters? Leaks? Maybe water damage in the roof itself? 6. Once everything is in tiptop working order, you'll need to clean all the mess you will have made on the floor below. Is it better to call a professional? Now that you've read the dangers and steps needed to clean your gutters, you probably know the answer to this question. There are multiple factors you need to think about before making a decision. First, do you feel up to the job? Second, do you have the right tools? A long enough ladder? Before you decide, why not ask for a free quote? Once you hear the price, you might decide that the DIY path is not worth the trouble!
