A hint for anyone who suffers from Gastro/heartburn. I am talking about cronic suffers not the once or twice because of what you have eaten.

When setting your shelter (ground Sleeping) pick a site that has a gentle slope so when sleeping your head is always elevated. In bad weather it will be necessary to dig drainage trench to prevent water wash coming thru.

Actually I found that if I sleep in a slope, I would ended up waking with sore muscles.
The body would subconsciously trying to compensate for the fall, and thus the muscles would never completely relax.

Instead, I would maybe dig a slight depression just under where my butt, and back is and tuck myself inside the depression.
Somehow this also helps the back bone a lot, and always woken up feeling a million dollars.
