'Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.' - Gary Snyder
If you're camping and want to know the temperature, but aren't connected to the Internet, don't panic, nature's got your back. During the spring and summer months, you can calculate the temperature by listening to a chirping cricket. Simply count the number of chirps you hear in 14 seconds. Then, add 40 to that number to find out the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.
