Camping is one of the great American past times, especially during summer. It is inexpensive, and awe inspiring to be in nature. It connects man back to its roots. In the fresh air, among trees, being active, living among animals, cooking outside, and sleeping in the night air…what could be better? There is so much beauty in nature, it’s not hard to see why camping is such a popular vacation choice. It can be a lot of fun, too, especially when there is a big group. Or perhaps you’re the type that prefers to go it alone, or with a significant other. Whether you’re a season backpacking camper used to roughing it, or you’re a once a year camper, or even “glamper,” you go camping to get away from it all. It’s a pull that is within each human being.
