2. Always hide a snack!

3. Careful where you put your tent.

I once put mine on an ants nest and they tried to eat me for their tea! Make sure it’s nice and flat and dry.

7. Make sure you peg your tent down properly

Pull the ropes nice and tight. You don’t want it to fall down in the middle of the night.
