Top 3 Adventure Hacks
1) Camp comfortably
Whether it may be a tent, an inflatable pad, a sleeping bag, or a hammock, make sure that these are comfortable – being ultralight is a plus factor.
2) Create quality meals
Camping would not be complete without an outdoor cooking device. Make quality meals in between treks, on rest periods, and during camping trips.
