New Campers Biggest Questions

I have noticed taking various friends camping for their first time that there are so many interesting questions they ask (usually ones which I least expect because I take for granted many of the things they wonder about).

What are some of the strangest questions people have asked you in reference to first time camping???

For me the strangest ones are:

  • How do bugs and snakes not get inside the port slit on the tent?
  • How do you start a campfire?
  • Is someone going to pop their head through the rain flap since there is an opening?
  • How do you know someone isn’t going to steal everything you have while you sleep?
