Difficulty sleeping while camping? We know the feeling. The day time activities were fun and you're tired so you decided to call it a day, you thought you'll fall asleep instantly but it's already 3am and you still can't get to sleep.
You started noticing the chirp of the crickets, the weird sound made by the wind, and you started imagining things like bear attacks and time seems to tick slower and slower.
We bet even experienced campers can relate, so in this blog we will share tips to sleep more soundly while camping.
1. Choose a flat campsite or settle your tent on a relatively flat area. Look for indications that the area has been a tent sight before, that is always a good sign. Make sure that it is not too close to any body of water to avoid getting flooded.
You wouldn't want to see your self rolling over the entire night and repositioning your self because of a sloped surface right?
To some a slight slope can be manageable as long as you can position yourself along the slope not perpendicular to it.
2. Zip your tent properly, you might wonder why is this even on the list it's common sense to zip up your tent. There are some nights that are just arid. No humidity and the wind is not blowing and the tendency is to open up your tent to let more air in.
Along with the air comes the mosquitos that can ruin your sleep.
So it's always better to zip your tent up and bring a fully charged portable fan with you jto keep you from getting sweaty in your tent.
Also you could check out our Ultralight Tent that has a breathable mesh fabric to let the cold air in and keep the mosquitos out.
