5 Tips for Camping in the Forest:
1. Research your destination or ask locals. Some of the best experiences we have ever had have been when we stopped in to information or visitor centers and asked for some guidance. They have great suggestions and can give you handy maps for your journey!
During the night and when away from camp we locked the food inside the car that was backed into our campsite. Keep your waste contained as well, either in trash bags or throw it into the fire pit. There is a lot more information that we could give you on this subject so if you are interested in more please let us know!
5. Choose your campsite carefully. This is essential for surviving any over-night trip, especially in the middle of nowhere. This could make or break your trip! I am always on the look out for the perfect spot and am cautious around dead or weak trees. Here in Wyoming the wind can blow up to 90+ mph, trees have been knocked over by gusts - you would not want to be in the wrong spot.
When analyzing the available campsites, you should pay attention to a few other key features. Whether or not the ground is level? If it rains will the water drain towards you? Are you well sheltered from the wind? And, most importantly for myself and Nikita, are you alone yet?
