Let’s Go Camping
Last year when our summertime activities were severely limited, I rediscovered one of my great loves: the outdoors. Of course, I spend plenty of Pacific Northwest days on the water or taking a morning hike, but it had been too long since I pitched a tent to stay a while. Faced with little else to do, my friends and I assembled our packs and set up camp most weekends, and I was hooked all over again. Now that the weather has ushered in another camping season, I’m heading straight to the woods.
My girlfriends and I don’t tend to truly rough it. We bring wine and oysters to host our own happy hour (shout out to Yeti for keeping them cold), but we also forage around for firewood, see who can toast the best marshmallow, and hang out in hammocks during the day. More serious backpackers will love compact gear like the VSSL First Aid kit and North Face Wawona tent. I’m holding out for the inflatable geodesic dome. Whatever your style, we have the gear for camping in comfort all season long.
