Mountain Mama: Make camping at the beach more enjoyable

first_imgWind. Strong ocean breezes have been known to blow away tents. While it’s entertaining to watch others tear down the beach trying to retrieve a tent that’s halfway to Europe, your girlfriend might not be all that amused if it’s her tent. Bring long stakes that will penetrate deep into the sand and hold your tent in place. The wind can also make it difficult to light a stove. Bring a screen for cooking. Also bring pots with lids that fit well to keep your food from being especially crunchy. Biting Insects. Many beach campsites come with their own army to welcome you – armies of horseflies and mosquitoes. But swarms of biting insects don’t have to ruin your beach camping trip as long as you’re prepared. Many swear by heavy industrial strength DEET. Some super resilient beach bugs bite through clothing and tents. Consider buying repellent for nylon and cotton. Citronella torches work well around the campsite and burning sage in a campfire helps to repel bugs.Enjoy the surf!Mountain Mama Dear Mountain Mama,I love the outdoors; my girlfriend loves the beach. She’s never camped before, but I’ve talked her into going beach camping with me. Any tips to make beach camping more enjoyable?Thanks,Beach BumDear Beach Bum:There’s nothing more romantic than the ocean lulling you to sleep and watching the sunrise over the ocean the next morning. Your girlfriend is sure to fall in love with camping as long as you plan ahead for the elements. Beach camping requires the right gear to protect you from the sun, wind, sand, and biting insects.Sun. It sounds silly to say, but make sure to apply sunscreen fifteen minutes before getting to the campsite, even on cloudy days. Cover your feet, ears, and top of your head. Nothing ends the fun of beach camping faster than sleeping on sunburned skin. Most beach campgrounds have little to no natural shade and many find the sun unrelenting. Plan ahead and bring your own source of shade. A screened tent is a nice option, providing a reprieve from the sun and bugs.center_img Sand. Speaking of sand, it gets everywhere when camping at the beach. I’ve never been accused of being a neat freak, and even I insist on bringing a small broom to sweep out the tent. Bringing a ground cover that’s bigger than the tent also provides a make-shift area for wiping the sand off feet before entering the tent. Keeping the tent sand-free goes a long way toward keeping the peace at the beach.last_img read more

Rejuvenated Cameroon, Egypt set for Cup final showdown

first_imgEgypt played their semi-final in Libreville on Wednesday, although they needed extra time and penalties to see off Burkina Faso after a 1-1 draw, veteran 44-year-old goalkeeper Essam El Hadary — already four times a winner of the competition — proving their hero in the shoot-out.Egyptian fans.– Formidable –The Egyptians had won three consecutive Cups of Nations between 2006 and 2010 but missed the last three tournaments amid political upheaval in the country before Argentine Hector Cuper led them to back onto the scene here.Like Broos, Cuper has a young squad, although there are four survivors from the team that won the title in 2010 in El Hadary, Ahmed Fathy, Mohamed Abdel-Shafi and the Hull City wing-back Ahmed Elmohamady.The Pharaohs have not exactly been a joy to watch — they have built their success under Cuper around a rock-solid defence that has only conceded one goal so far in Gabon, while they have relied heavily on the star quality of Mohamed Salah at the other end.“Egypt will not be very different to what we have seen so far, whether people like that or not, whether that means we will be attacking or not,” Cuper told reporters on Saturday.“What we will be looking for is a result and up to now we have had results.”Cuper, who has Arsenal midfielder Mohamd Elneny struggling with a calf injury, is eager to shake off his own reputation as a loser having suffered numerous agonising defeats in finals in his career.But Egypt have a quite formidable record in finals — just one defeat in eight Cup of Nations finals and two wins out of two on such occasions against Cameroon, with the first coming on penalties in Cairo in 1986.“It’s a great way to end the competition in the final but it will be even better if we win the cup,” said Elmohamady.Egyptians celebrateShare on: WhatsApp Action when Uganda took on Egypt. Egypt won 1-0 to march on into the final.Libreville, Gabon | AFP |Cameroon and Egypt are both aiming to cap remarkable revivals by winning the Africa Cup of Nations when they meet in a final that few thought possible in Libreville on Sunday evening.These are two of the most successful nations in the 60-year history of the competition, with Egypt unrivalled on seven titles and Cameroon, four-time winners, just behind alongside Ghana.But at the outset of the tournament in Gabon it was the likes of Algeria, Senegal and defending champions the Ivory Coast who were considered the favourites, with Egypt dark horses in their first appearance since 2010.Cameroon, meanwhile, came with what looked like their weakest ever squad, handicapped by the refusal of several leading players to accept call-ups from Belgian coach Hugo Broos.Yet the Indomitable Lions qualified from their group at the expense of the hosts and have since knocked out both Senegal and Ghana to make their first final since 2008.Then, with a side containing the likes of Rigobert Song and Samuel Eto’o, they lost 1-0 to the Egyptians in Ghana’s capital Accra.This current Cameroon side has no such big name stars but Broos has transformed their fortunes over the last 12 months and is now looking for them to make history.“For these young players — 14 of the 23 are playing at their first Cup of Nations — it is possibly a unique opportunity in their careers to win the trophy,” he said.Speaking to reporters on Saturday, captain Benjamin Moukandjo added: “Of course when you get to this stage you want to win but I think looking at the run we have had we have already done well.“I don’t think anyone here would have bet a cent on us beforehand and that’s a real shame.”Cameroon, who last won the title in 2002, have had 24 hours less time to recover and ready themselves for the game at the Stade de l’Amitie after second-half goals by Michael Ngadeu and Christian Bassogog gave them a 2-0 win against Ghana in Franceville on Thursday.last_img read more

Guardiola glad as Man City overcome derby ‘fear’ to beat Man Utd

first_imgThe Portuguese boss, in a separate interview with Sky Sports, added: “All three goals are our mistakes. Against a team like City, if you make mistakes you will get punished.”United scored twice in the closing five minutes to win 2-1 away to Juventus in the Champions League in midweek while City continued their campaign in European club football’s elite tournament with a 6-0 thrashing of Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.Mourinho, while not blaming United’s defeat on their exertions in Italy, said: “Everybody has to agree, it is one thing to go to Juventus and play against one of the best teams in the world for 90 minutes, another thing to beat Shakhtar Donetsk at home 6-0 and be very relaxed.“We arrive in different circumstances.”Share on: WhatsApp Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said his side had to overcome early “fear” before the reigning Premier League champions returned to the top of the table with a 3-1 derby win at home to Manchester United on Sunday.Goals early in each half at the Etihad from David Silva and Sergio Aguero left City in a commanding position before an Anthony Martial penalty gave visitors United hope of a comeback.But Ilkay Gundogan put the result beyond doubt four minutes from time with a third goal that crowned a sublime 44-pass move.Victory left City two points clear of Liverpool and Guardiola told the BBC: “We deserved the victory. The first half we played a little bit with fear but football is a game and we didn’t want to lose the ball.”Asked why his team had been fearful, Guardiola replied: “We wanted to play good in front of our fans and we know how important it is to play in this game. But we did well and that goal from Sergio Aguero helped us a lot after half-time.”Defeat left United 12 points behind City just 12 games into the league season, with beaten manager Jose Mourinho accepting there was now a “gap” between the Manchester clubs.He insisted his team were united in reality as well as in name, while saying all three of City’s goals were down to mistakes by his players.“For me zero words against my players, everything is positive,” Mourinho said. “I am with them and they are with me.“There is a gap, Manchester City start playing from the beginning of the season at a certain level that allows them to get a lot of points.”last_img read more
