We all need to have some fun.
Some of us choose to do that by camping in tents on the hard ground. Which is definitely the wrong way to have fun.
But then there’s some of us who like to hang from the trees in our hammocks. Which is definitely the right idea of fun.
Now if you’re looking for some of our more lighthearted articles take a look below at the stuff we wrote for fun.
If you haven’t noticed this whole article on this page is also a little satirical in nature.
Just thought I’d let you in on that if you are a little slow to catch on like myself sometimes.
As mentioned earlier there are those that try camping in tents on the ground.
Or even worse, they sleep under a tarp inside a bivy. Gasps
But no need to worry we’re going to detail all the ways not to camp to ensure maximum fun on your next trip.
There’s the inevitable obstacles that Mother Nature presents, and when sleeping on the ground these obstacles are even worse.
Yes I’m saying it.
It’s easier to stay dry in a hammock during a rainstorm than it is sleeping on the ground.
If you’re on the ground you have to worry about finding high ground, if the water is soaking through the bottom and the top.
Mind you if you seam sealed that tent/tarp to begin with you probably would have a lot less to worry about.
Also for your information if you have any tarp that isn’t Cuban fiber or already waterproofed at the time of purchase I would definitely waterproof it yourself. Yes this goes for you hammockers too.
But back on track, you still have to worry about finding high ground to set up on.
And not only does it have to be high, it has to be flat, clear of any roots, and rocks too.
Because sleeping with a tree root sticking into your kidneys is definitely not comfortable.
