Be good to yourself–go camping and have a little refreshment in your life.

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 bed sheets and the kitchen table, but it’s there in your life resumé nevertheless.

Why do people camp?  The reasons are as varied as the campers themselves.  Some want the challenge of surviving in the wilderness without endangering their lives. Others just want the peace and quiet, without technology hemming them in. Others want to teach their children there’s more to life than video games. And on, and on, and on.

What is camping?

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, you can always learn something new to try in each of those areas.

That’s why you’re at this home page, and why I created this site–so that there is a place where you and your friends and family can visit and learn about the new stuff you 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, 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! Now that you’ve read our home page, browse a little.   email: max@campingandhikingideas.com
