But that was for our own convenience.
It is much more comfortable to camp while it's cold than while it's hot.
If you are lucky enough to camp while it's cold, wear a hat to sleep but still expect to have a cold nose. Sleeping bundled up and still being a little cold is part of the deal.
You can see a gazillion stars when you're out in the woods away from the city lights. This is a great reminder of how small we are in the big scheme.
It's pretty smart to keep a flashlight and a pair of shoes at the tent door, oh, and some toilet paper.
Always keep your tent door zipped shut.
If your tent isn't waterproofed, waterproof it!
Every meal tastes better when you're camping.
Are any of you campers? Any bits of wisdom you'd care to add?
