I have two major fears when camping in a tent. Bears and maniac killers.
Everybody knows what to do about preventing bear attacks but what about those maniac killers. Do you sleep with butcher knives or guns? Always have a rape whistle wrapped around your neck? Set up booby traps outside the tent?
Here’s my super secret tip. I take my hiking shoes and thread the laces through the zipper making a lock. Now I only have to worry about maniac killers with nylon cutting knives. Maybe I’ll try the booby trap thing.
