Overnight in the open air

When he comes to spend the night in the field, first choose a suitable camping spot, and then prepare a shelter – it can be a tent brought in a backpack or a self-made hut. In the polar regions, the shelter or tent sometimes needs to be replaced by an ice igloo, while in the equatorial jungle a bed placed above the ground on a structure made of branches. When you already have a shelter, you should think about arranging and lighting a fire, where you can warm up and cook food. For this you need to collect dry wood and brushwood or other kindling material. In some cases, you should also be able to kindle the first spark yourself. Once you've pitched your bivouac, dig the latrine and mark the place, where is. You should surround the entire camp with a rope. When leaving the camp, you should carefully remove all traces of your presence, unless you leave signs for a rescue trip on purpose. Your activity in the field is determined by the natural rhythm of the day and night. Try to get up at dawn, to use the time, that nature gives you, before it gets dark. Impose a lifestyle adapted to the rhythm of sunrises and sunsets in your place, rest around noon. Plan your day like this, to always make it to the camp before dark. Also remember, that no one here imposes any deadlines, so you can forget about the frenetic pace of city life.

You can sleep under the stars in many places around the globe, but it is much more comfortable to live in a tent or other shelter. You can always carry a tent with you, you can also erect a makeshift shelter made of natural materials available in a given area each time.
