It’s also impossible to know in advance just how energetic or tired you’re going to feel, and when you’re going to want a rest. However, such requirements simply have to be lived with in order to visit many National Parks and other popular parks and wilderness areas.
If you’re taking a trip from the campsite and won’t be back by lunchtime, you’ll probably want to pack a lunch. The easiest time to do this is at breakfast, while the food is out. Most people on the move eat a cold lunch. If you’re remaining at camp, lunch can also be cooked if you want. A stove could be brought along on a day trip, but many of us don’t bother because of the extra weight, bulk, and unnecessary trouble involved.
When you leave camp for the day or even a much shorter time, remember to make sure your food is hung or otherwise properly secured, the tent is closed up, and nothing of importance is left outside in case it rains. Always pack raingear, extra clothing, food, ample water, a flashlight, and emergency items to bring along on any day trip. If there’s a campfire, make sure it’s completely out before you leave.

Tobacco cultivation was hard on land and labor. San Francisco Subway Map The indentured servants who initially worked in the fields gave way to African slaves as the seventeenth century progressed. A Dutch ship brought the first Africans to Virginia, and while their legal status may have been slightly murky, the legal status of Africans in late-seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Virginia was crystal clear. They and their children were permanent chattel, or movable property. A rigid, caste-like system grew to maturity in the Tidewater’s tobacco-producing areas. At the pinnacle of this Tidewater plantation society were the great planters. In addition to dominating the region economically and culturally, they controlled Tidewater politics tightly. Their fathers and grandfathers had worked the land in the Tidewater and struggled to survive in a harsh and alien environment, but by the eighteenth century many of the leading planter families, such as the Byrds and Carters, had begun to establish themselves as a new Country aristocracy, one whose powers in Virginia surpassed those possessed by the English aristocracy across the Atlantic. This class of men shared one defining characteristic: they were first and foremost tobacco planters, and this label carried a fair amount of cultural baggage in eighteenthcentury Virginia.
