And what better way to get off the grid than heading out into the woods for a summer camping excursion?If you’ve always wanted to try camping, why not plan your first trip this year? Full-on vacations might not be on your horizon, but safely camping outside is definitely something we can look forward to. You can start out small, spending a weekend at a local campground (many of which offer electricity, bathrooms, and even showers!), and once you feel comfortable roughing it, you can venture out to more secluded spots in the wilderness to really get away from it all.
No matter whether you’re staying at a well-maintained campground or out in the middle of nowhere, you’re going to need the right gear to keep yourself safe and comfortable throughout your trip. A few must-have camping items include a tent, sleeping bag, cooking supplies, bug spray, and a comfy chair for relaxing. Luckily, the avid campers of the world are more than happy to share their thoughts on today’s most popular equipment, leaving thousands of reviews to help you find the right gear.
