1. Be one with the dirt.
2. Be friendly with your fellow neighbors. They might share some food, or some beer, or you might be camping next to a group of German teenage exchange students who will entertain you with German camp stories.
4. A waterfall, a stream, a lake, or the ocean- a body of water will make camping even more fun
5. S'mores are a requirement with every meal. Be forewarned however that jet puff shrunk their regular marshmallow when they introduced the jumbo size- I swear!
6. It would suck if one were to get injured in the middle of nowhere, but sometimes the extreme climb is worth a great view and the satisfactory feeling.
