In part one, Kylie talks about where to set up your tent by following guidance from one of the seven Leave No Trace principles, travel and camp on durable surfaces.
In part two, Chelsea talks about the bearmuda triangle, to discourage bears from visiting your tent. What’s equally, if not more, important is proper food storage when you’re camping.
