Step 2: Secure your shelter

Unless you're staying in a trailer or some other built shelter, you'll need a tent. You'll also need a sleeping bag for each person. A drop cloth will protect the tent floor from wear and you from wetness. Pillows and sleeping pads or air mattresses can make your night more comfortable.

Tents, drop cloths, sleeping bags, and pads can all be rented from camping supply stores if you don't want to invest right now. Before you leave, make sure you have all the tent pegs and poles. You should also practice setting up the tent at home to familiarize yourself with the process.
