  • Tent, set of pegs, cord.



Choose a place
Stay for the night before sunset. Look for a dry and level place. It is desirable that it be protected from the wind by natural obstacles: rocks, trees, hills. Try to avoid the neighborhood of thick bushes, tall grass and large reservoirs in summer, so that mosquitoes and mosquitoes do not reach you.


If you are in the woods, make sure that there are no ants and no animal paths nearby. Avoid placing a tent under tall old and rotten trees that can simply fall on you.


Lie down in the chosen place and go for a drive onBack to feel and remove all protruding knots and stones. On an uneven surface, place the tent in such a way that the head is above the feet. With a very steep slope, put large stones or logs at the entrance so that your feet rest against them and you do not slide down.


Check the soil for dryness by pressing on itWith the palm of your hand. If there is moisture during this, it is better to look for another place. But even if you are surrounded only by swampy land, do not despair. Do the flooring under a tent of thin trees.
