Afternoon and Early Evening
If you’re spending the day away from camp, plan to arrive back at the site by late afternoon if possible, or at least with an hour or two of daylight remaining, so you’ll have time for dinner before it gets dark. It’s good to leave some extra time in your schedule in case something unforeseen arises, or it simply takes a lot longer than expected to return.
Bring a flashlight with spare batteries and bulb just in case. Without it you could be stranded in the event of a serious delay. This might mean that you’d have to spend a night away from camp, presumably minus your sleeping bag and tent, and with only the clothing and gear you’ve brought for the day.
Even with a flashlight, progress is usually slower after dark. This isn’t an ideal way to travel, since trails are often harder to follow and it’s easier to get lost. Returning to camp and having supper while there’s still daylight is certainly preferable. If you’re someone who’s inclined to make ambitious daytime plans, however, there may well be times when you’ll be eating by the light of your flashlight, lantern, or campfire.
When moving on to a new area, leave ample time in the afternoon to look for a campsite and set up your tent. Finding a good site can take time, especially if you’re in a hilly or rough area, or one with dense vegetation. It’s never much fun if you have to hurry because of dwindling daylight.
Whenever possible, it’s always a pleasure to allow for a bit of leisure time before dinner. If you’re on an extended trip, once in a while you may want to stop by midday and take the afternoon off. This will give you some extra time for rest, and perhaps for cleaning up, washing some clothes, and/or swimming.

Tobacco Tobacco, used extensively for curing and in religious and sociopolitical rituals by native peoples across the Countrys, was introduced to Europeans in 1492 though they got its name wrong. As tobacco burned its way into our modern history, spreading rapidly across Europe, Asia, and Africa, doctors extolled its virtues as a medicinal panacea, while popes denounced it as the devil weed and world leaders encouraged its spread in order to tax it and add to their treasuries. Tobacco use rose, spiraling upward like the evocative smoke of the burning herb, then began plummeting to smoldering ashes as, in the last half of the twentieth century, its use was irrevocably linked to cancer.
