Did You Know?

  • Tent companies don’t supply you with all the accessories to setup up the tent appropriately whether it is a $50 tent or $1000 tent
  • If you buy the wrong tent, the inside of the tent will collect condensation and “rain” on you at night inside the tent.
  • Making ho-bo meals are a great way to make simple meals and entertain kids 
  • You can bake over an open fire and make meals as good as home
  • You can rent private property to go camping
  • Most people had a bad experience camping when younger and that stops them from camping now
