The Best Way to Enjoy Nature – Go Camping!
Summer is here and Game of Thrones just aired its finale. There’s no more excuse not to ditch your TV for a while, and instead go outside to enjoy some fun outdoor activities. One of the best ways to soak up the sun (yes, you should replenish that vitamin D after binge-watching GOT) and let Mother Nature re-energize your soul is going camping. It’s a great way to spend quality time with your friends and family, it’s relatively inexpensive, and your body and mind will really thank you for it.
If you have ever been on a camping trip with your family for summer vacation when you were a kid, you probably have fond memories of sitting in the backseat of your father’s station wagon (for you Gen Xers) looking out the window taking in all the new sights and sounds. The trunk was stuffed with a clunky tent, giant rolls of sleeping bags, fishing rods, and the Scrabble game. Thankfully, the experience of camping hasn’t changed much since then – the road trip, and anticipation, setting up the tent, cooking over the camp fire, and the relaxation. However, one thing has evolved considerably over time, and that is the technologies of the camping equipment. The modern camping gear has become much lighter, more compact, and much easier to operate to further enhance your camping experience.

Choose the Right Tent Fabric
When planning for a camping trip, the first thing that comes to mind is the tent. Tent plays a huge part of the camping experience because it provides a very important and basic human need – shelter. Over the years the tent fabric has gone high-tech so it is now super strong and durable. There are many types of tent fabric available on the market today – cotton, polyester-cotton, polyester, and nylon just to name a few. Depending on your budget and needs, each material has its pros and cons. Make sure you do enough research to understand the differences between them.
Some people get intimidated by the lengthy tent set-up process. But technology has an answer for that too. The new pop up tent is the latest trend. Like the name suggests, pop up tent takes just a couple of minutes to set up because it simply “pops up” to the final tent structure when it’s released from the bag. What a great invention!
