I got these tips last night wile I was watching Without a Paddle on TV. The host had the editor from Backpacking Magazine with him. The host asked the editor about some tips to pick out your camping site and here are some camping site tips:
- Look up. If there are dead limbs do not camp under them.
- If bugs are a problem move higher. Mosquitoes cannot fly in winds greater then 7 MPH.
- If bugs are not a problem and it’s getting cold at night camp at lower elevations.
I admit I never thought about the first one but that is a big one. The editor said someone had been killed by a falling branch. Stay safe while camping!
