It is important to establish and set up your shelter before the sun goes down. Once the sky becomes dark, finding a good spot for your tent, necessary firewood and food preparation become near impossible.

Do whatever you can to make sure that you find a safe location for your tent and pitch it before you find yourself in this sticky situation.
Keep in mind that you, your family, and everything you take with you is probably going to be dirty. If you’re ready for this, it will bother you less when it happens. Take this as an opportunity to enjoy the freedom, let your hair down, and get a little dirtier than usual. You can get back to normal after returning home.
