*Tips you need to remember for camping*
*Gear up* you should be aware of how much room you have and how much you can carry. If there is a high distance to hike make sure you are light weighted because no one wants to ruin a nice day in nature with the burden of heavy backpack.
*Sleep well *don’t forget the tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and pillow and extra blankets. The size of the tent depends on how many people you are. A light-weight “3-season” tent is made for spring, summer, and fall conditions designed to keep people dry during light snow or rain. If you are going on camping in the winter, go with a mountaineering tent that can withstand under harsher weather conditions.
*Fire up* if you are going to make fire, make sure you bring along some charcoal, fire starters, matches, pot, utensils, and cups/bowls/plates. It is also necessary to check out that your campsite allows fire or not. Also keep sands and water nearby to put out the fire whenever you need.
*Dress for success* the best type of clothes which you wear is cotton. Choose moisture-wicking clothes and synthetic or wool socks to keep the body dry and sweat-free. Don’t forget to pack waterproof clothes, a sun hat, and hiking boots.
*Be an Eco-tourist *the most important tip while you are camping is: treat as an eco-tourist and do not hurt nature. Do not spread out your garbage or break tree branches for fire. Just make sure you are not contributing in disturbing some pristine areas in nature. *Ultimate checklist for camping*
