8. We find nothing strange about eating multiple hotdogs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner
Hey, it's survival mode out here.
9. Your clothes and hair will smell like campfire for days
Embrace it. This is who you are now. A stinky, filthy, dirt-person who smells like a campfire. It's a great life.
10. Ropes are great. Tarps are better.
You can create a seemingly endless amount of things with a rope and a tarp. For starters, you can easily construct a shelter that will keep you and your things dry and warm. You can (and should) also use tarps for ground cover to keep dew and bugs away from your tent and your things.
11. You’ll need more water than that
As a rule of thumb, when camping for three days you should have at least one gallon of water per person. If you plan on cracking some beers though, you'll want to bring an extra to combat the dehydration that's likely to ensue. You could also invest in a purifier if you see this whole camping thing becoming more than a hobby. Or at least iodine tablets that will purify creek water in a few minutes.
12. You’ll need more ice than that
If you're bringing food and drinks, you'll likely be hauling a few coolers to store it all in. Between cooking and grabbing brewskis, it's amazing how quickly the ice melts from people opening and closing the cooler's lid. Even an extra bag or two can last throughout the night.
