Then, there is “THE nature”; cruel and biting, layered in sweat, and bears attacking humbly constructed tents. So when we were required go hiking the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA for a

Camping in the Atacama Desert, Chile: Outside the Tent

They tell you there’s nothing like the great outdoors: the wild and the beautiful, the remote and the other-worldly. Being under canvas, cooking over an open fire; sharing the environment, respecting and understanding the earth. All of this gives you a sense of coming together - to be one - with nature.

Camping Nevada in Winter: Don’t Just Say It, Do It

I was a Martial Arts Instructor. As such, we tried to keep our students interested in this activity through participation in various events. Almost every month we had movie nights or contests. Our fearless owner even suggested a camping trip. He suggested we go on a camping trip to the Valley of Fire, Nevada in October. This gave us until the end of the year to plan this camping event. Thus, our t

Mosquito Misery and Meyhem!

Every summer, they come. They sneak into the tent and ravage your ankles; they find the one spot on your left shoulder that didn’t get drenched in a layer of mosquito repellent and they gnaw, chomp, and suck away.
