Going camping as an adult really gives you a newfound appreciation for your parents. Think about it: While they were busy doing all the work—figuring out where to camp, how to set things up, what to eat—you got to enjoy nature without worrying about all the logistics of your camping setup. Those were the good old days.
Now that you’re an adult, you’ve probably realized that a good camping experience doesn’t just happen by accident. Camping is all about having fun and reconnecting with nature–two things that can be difficult to accomplish when your camping setup is disorganized and impractical. This guide is meant to help you create a more comfortable and convenient camping setup so you can spend less time being stressed out and more time enjoying the great outdoors.
