So a long day of hiking has finally come to an end, you snuggle up inside of your sleeping bag and you just cannot get comfortable… it is still too cold! The worst possible situation, at least for me, on a camping trip is being too cold as you are in your tent or tarp structure. There are several ways that you can keep this structure nice and cozy though, from space heaters to heated rocks, so no need to worry!
The first summer I opened up my RV and found mice droppings all over, I wondered how to keep mice out of camper. It took a long time to clean up the camper after the damage from the rodents and I was certain that I didn’t want that to happen again.
Tarps are one the hikers greatest (and oldest) tools to have with them on any long distance hike. Although some trekkers may prefer the more traditional tent, tarps are seen as the jack-of-all-trades. It is light, portable, and can be tucked into a pack without much space needed for it. The most convenient part about a tarp though, that I think you will appreciate the most, is the ability to create a shelter in any situation! You can use anything that is around you, trees, roots, or even your own gear to set up your tarp.
