Campfires Camping Tips

Planning to have campfires? It may be tough to start one if everything is damp. Carry a fire starter or two, to make it easy. Pieces of cardboard soaked in candle wax work well, even when wet.
Dried peat moss can be used for insulation to turn a light jacket into a warm coat. Just stuff the jacket full without removing it. It can also be used as mattress material or toilet paper.
Sleeping bags should not be stored in stuff sacks. This constant compression will eventually crush the insulation, making for less loft and therefore less warmth. Store bags unpacked on a shelf or in a large cloth bag.Camping and Backpacking Tips
