Beat sore muscles

A long day on the trail can mean slow going in the morning if you aren’t quite up to the workout.  It makes it tough to climb out of your sleeping bag in the morning, especially if it’s cold out.  Stretching those muscles before and after your trek is important, but so is keeping those muscles warm through the night.  Be sure to dress warmly for bed, and take a water bottle filled with hot water with you, leaving it at the bottom of your sleeping bag to warm your feet and legs.
