My kids are always acusing me of being Mr. Safety but if you’re miles from the trailhead, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. There a great addition to your camping gear that can also be part of your emergeny supplies - the “forever” or “wind up” technology of flashlights and emergency radios. These can be invaluable out on the trail especially if your stranded for a period of time and can also double as emergency gear at home. It also doesn’t hurt to go a little “green” with these.
Some of it tastes like cardboard or a preservative casserole but it doesn’t have to !!! I like to eat well out on the trail but some of what most people think of backpacking food is that it’s just fair. You like to have good camping gear so why not get good backpacking food? There’s a secret source known as Cache Lake Camping Foods and the tastes are incredible - especially their specialty, fry bread. Yes, this is a blatant commercial for the stuff, but it’s great.
Want a quick and easy way to go tent camping, add a truck camping tent to your camping gear. These tents offer convenience in set up and an easy way to set up camp in a hurry. Great for a cross country trip at any campground.
