I was 7 years old when my father decided we were going to become a “camping family”. Therefore, the idea of sleeping outside with nothing but a sleeping bag and tent walls separating me from the earth is not foreign to me. But trust me when I tell you – we did NOT start off as experts. There was a lot of trial and error when it came to gear, routines, and how to keep the entire family smiling while temporarily living outdoors.
Over 30 years later, I’m still an avid camper, enjoying the days and weeks where I can exchange my suburban home for a tent in the wilderness.
Below you will find all of my posts with tips and tricks for beginner campers (and maybe even tips for the seasoned pros!). This page is a work in progress, so please check back frequently for new posts!
