It’s late August, and already the mornings are getting cool and the Aspens are starting to change colors here in Colorado. That means that the masses will soon be sitting outside around fire pits roasting marshmallows.
Are you looking for the best camping tents for your next camping adventure? Then you probably know that picking one out isn’t that simple: There are tents for summer, tents for winter, tents for all seasons, tents for backpacking, tents for campgrounds…and on the list goes.
It’s getting harder and harder to make S’mores on camping trips these days. Back in my day when all the hangers were metal, all you needed was a bit of hand strength to bend said hanger, and a campfire.
I like to camp, but in Texas we have only two seasons- hot and August. In August, ole Beelzebub won’t come to Texas. Considering it was roughly 197-degrees yesterday, camping is out, but if you live somewhere that you can actually play outdoors without bursting into flames or stroking out, you can now eat pizza while you camp.
If you’ve never liked going camping but don’t want to sit any trips out because you might miss out on all the bonding, then here’s a sort-of compromise for you: get the Camping Hammock.
It’s basically a hammock/tent combo that will let you relax and chill out, even when you’re supposed to be roughing it.
These days, the conventional and traditional birdhouse might not be enough for our avian friends who want their homes to get an upgrade.
Wood-worker Jumahl was happy to oblige and he designed what looks to be a vintage camper for birds.
As I’ve said before, I’ve never been big on camping. One of my constant complaints is the lack of hot water. I always take a bath with hot water. If the heater’s broken, I’d rather go without my daily bath.
Most people don’t expect comfort when they go camping. Most outdoor gear and equipment are manufactured to be tough and durable so that they can endure even the harshest of storms. But just when you thought you’d really have to rough it out in the wild, here comes the Zippered Vents sleeping bag.
Your camping trips, as they are right now, happen to be a bit lackluster. Scouring the ground for bits of old possum meat and sleeping in a couple of quilted blankets is only fun for the first couple of days.
I have never been big on camping, but the Tentanic might just change my mind. In case you’re wondering, the Tentanic is a tent of massive proportions, with a name that was drawn from one of the most well-known cruise ships in history: the Titanic.
Dangerous animals lurk on the forest floor at night, and centipedes aren’t exactly the most cuddly creatures in the world. You want to camp out, but not be bothered by nature. Before, people would have said you’re not a real outdoorsman.
If you tend to use your iPad 2 pretty much anywhere but on a desk, you’ll need to find a comfortable way to hold it. This new stand/case from X-Doria is supposed to make things easier when you’re sitting or lying down.
When you’re outdoors, either for camping or because the Great Zombie Apocalypse has finally begun, you need to drink clean water. As such, some of the portable filters and water purifiers are a bit annoying to use, which is why I think that CamelBak’s All Clear UV water purifier is so cool.
