Not all people like camping in winter, but if you are really outdoorsy, you’re likely to try it at some point or the other. It goes without saying that the cold season might be a pain in the rear if you aren’t accustomed to chilly nights or if you just want to take it easy and go camping in the summertime. I’m going to let you know a series of tips and tricks that you can use to get the most of your camping experience even if it’s cold outside.
The first advice I can give you is to avoid putting your head inside your sleeping bag. Most people hate feeling cold in that area, and so that is why they end up tucking their heads inside the bag. The fact of the matter is that the product is likely to be made out of a material with some kind of insulation. There will be a certain amount of condensation inside from all the breathing that you will be doing, and the whole process is rather easy to understand. So, if you want to avoid doing this, I suggest getting a good-quality hat that can keep you warm.
Make sure you protect your extremities. What I mean by this is that if your feet are cold, you have a high chance of feeling cold overall. I used to have a problem with this issue, and I still do once in a while because I have to make sure I wear socks in the house from autumn to late spring. About fifty percent of your body heat can be dispersed via your extremities, which means that you should wear good-quality boots and a nice pair of gloves that can protect both your feet and your hands.
Avoid sleeping in all of your clothes. Think of it this way. What will you be wearing tomorrow if you are resolute on keeping warm during the night? Let’s not forget that awful feeling that you will have in the morning, when you finally realize that you have to get out of your nice, cozy, and warm sleeping bag and face the music, which in this case means the cold. Get dressed while you are still inside the sleeping bag to try to manage the situation a bit better. If you do fall asleep in all of your clothes, there won’t be a way of getting warm because you won’t have anything extra to put on.
Grab a sleeping bag that’s in accordance with your physical attributes. Normally, I would suggest that bigger is better, but this rule does not apply in this case. It’s better to opt for a sleeping bag that can keep you snug.
