Just a few tips to keep in mind when you are planning on doing an overnighter. These tips are more about your comfort and less about gear needed: that is an entirely different discussion.
- Take along camp clothes; something different to sleep in then what you hike in.
- Eat a small snack before you go to bed; it will keep you warmer at night.
- Keep a bottle of water handy; makes night time thirst easier to quench.
- Keep a flashlight nearby; for animals invading your camp and all that water you drank through out the night.
