13. Bedding Location is Very Important
A lot of people make the mistake of making camp and merely laying on the ground. While it is true that a good fire can help rid you of most bugs, there are many other creepy crawlies that come out at night too. From things like scorpions to fire ants, even lizards, and snakes. It’s quite clear that being on the ground can be a bad idea.
The best thing to do is make a platform off the ground, which can be easily done by finding sturdy branches. To make it softer for sleeping, merely find leaves to put across it. You may not have them, in which case you can cut parts of some trees off with your knife and weave together bedding.
