Don't wear shorts

    This is my advice to the young campers - don't wear shorts. A camper's primary conern is the skin because camping means going to inhospitable environment. The skin is the first target of the elements hence campers are usually covered well with long sleeve shirts. I enjoy wearing denims or any pants made of thick cloth. That gives me peace of mind on the thought that ny legs are fully protected.

    ...it really depends on the circumstance what one wears. It's not a question what one wants but what one needs. Our neck of the woods is a lot different from yours. People would be scratching their heads and wondering what you are doing in denim on a hot summer's day.
