It’s been a chilly winter thus far, so if you’re heading out into the wilderness for a camping trip, you better bring these tips for staying warm! Some of them you may know, but we just want to make sure we cover all of our bases before sending you out on your great adventure!

Bring Hand and Foot Warmers

Hand and foot warmers go a long way, friends! You can find hand and foot warmers at your local drug or department store. Purchase them, pack them, and appreciate their warmth as your cram them into your pockets and into the soles of your shoes. You’ll be amazed at how helpful they are.

Layer Your Clothing

It’s always best to dress (and pack) your clothes in layers. This way, if you’re cold, you can add clothing items, but if you’re feeling a little toasty, you can easily remove layers and cool off. So wearing your clothes in layers is both beneficial for the cold nights, and the warm-ish afternoons! You’ll be so thankful that you didn’t stick to one side of the spectrum.

Keep Your Sleeping Gear Dry

Did you know that our sleeping bag can hold a lot of moisture, causing it to be very wet and cold? Well, it certainly can! That’s the absolute last thing you need! Dry out your sleeping bag during the day whenever possible, and avoid breathing into it at night while you sleep.

Other tips include eating protein-filled meals, eating late, adding more layers to the outside of your tent, and so many more! We wish we could cover it all! But while you’re out there on Lake LBJ having the time of your life, make sure you’re staying warm! We hope these brief tips have helped to jog your memory of more warming tactics!
