    Tarp under your tent and tarp or EZ-UP over your tent to help stay dry.

    Air mattress under your sleeping bag is the nuts.

    No shoes in the tent!

    Zip two sleeping bags together if you wanna get, um, cozy.

    Avoid setting up in an open field. It gets really hot, really early.

    If you're in an area with a lot of other campers (festival) bring a flag with a long flag pole so you can find your campsite easily.

    Keep all food sealed up tight. Bears and other animals will get curious in the middle of the night.

    E: thought of another one. Buy a 5 gallon shower bag, (this isn't the name but I can't remember the real name) fill it with water, leave in the sun all day, warm shower at night. Profit!

      Went to Glastonbury a couple of weeks ago and I am so thankful that other people had flags to help navigate. The open field point is a lot bigger deal than you think, I had to sleep with my tent door open because it got so hot.

      This here is number one for me.

        I remember my government issued pamphlet about what to do in case of bears.

        Learned this one the hard way. Raccoon stole a backpack with food in it when I was a child and my dad chased it thru the woods until he dropped it.
