    One very important part of a camping activity is its preparation, if you are prepared, you will not be able to meet problems. A list of what to bring is cool, and a set of good gears is perfect for the adventure.

    Winter camping is lot different with ordinary day camping, of course the weather is colder and you need a lot of body heat in order to survive. One camping material that you are to bring along is the mattress, this will be the material that will make you warm throughout the night.
