If you have a bad back you may worry about the affects of sitting and sleeping outdoors during your camping trip. Check your favorite camping supply catalog to see if they carry thermal chairs and sleeping pads. These pads add softness and a little support under a sleeping bag, but they are also made of a thermal material that holds the heat, which can help keep your back from stiffening up.
Some of these pads also fold to fit into folding camping chairs, so you can keep your back comfy when you're sitting around the campfire, too. The mats are thin and easy to pack into a backpack, and inexpensive. If your favorite camping supply catalog doesn't carry these pads, look for them online.
