    Backpacking & Camping Tips : Staying Warm in a Sleeping Bag

    Hi, I’m Richard Fields. In this clip we’re going to talk about how to stay warm in your sleeping bag. Of course, zipping it up all the way is, number one. Your bag needs to be on a, a good quality pad to insulate you from the ground, where you’re going to loose most of your heat. Having done that, it’s a good idea if you have some kind of long underwear, polypropylene or wool, top and bottom. That will increase the warmth of the bag quite a bit.

    How to Purify Water for Drinking | Camping

    So, figuring out how you’re going to get fresh, drinkable water when you’re camping is a pretty big concern. If you’re primitive camping, meaning that you’re hiking in a couple of miles from where you parked your car, then you’re probably not going to be able to carry all the water that you need in with you. I did used to do that when I first started camping, just because it seemed like the most comfortable and safest way to go. I had a couple of five-gallon jugs and I would fill them before I left.
