EVERYONE, whether they know it or not, has had at some stage, experience with camping. Maybe the last time you added to that experience was when you were eight and created that tent with your bedsheets and the kitchen table, but it’s there in your life resumé nevertheless.

Camping is just day-to-day living stripped down to it’s most basic level. It is shelter, water, heat, food, first aid and entertainment. But what makes camping addictive, or at the very least enjoyable, is how you deal with each thing. And no matter how skilled a camper you become, there is always something new to try in each of those areas.

That’s why I created this site–so that there is a place where everyone who is interested in camping can visit and learn about the new stuff they haven’t tried yet. Maybe it’s a new tent. Or perhaps you want to know a really great knot to tie in your rope when putting up tarps. You may even be really, really tired of eating canned beans and want to know easy recipes or menus for yourself or the crowd that’s going to show up. Whatever it is, I’m hoping you’ll find something new here to try. And hey–if you have a great idea, feel free to share in the comment section below, or email me. You’ll be benefiting all like-minded outdoor people that visit here. Thanks for dropping by! email: max@campingandhikingideas.com Share on Facebook
