Here in the south, camping season has just kicked off, as the temperatures have finally begun to drop. A few weeks ago, we headed out to a local state park for a multi-family weekend camping adventure. We had a lot of fun... I thought I'd share the biggest hits!
In terms of gear, our roomy tent did the job - though I'd love to have a pop-up camper like I camped in as a kid, or maybe a vintage trailer like this one! However, the show stealer of the weekend was a simple hammock strung between two trees. The kids took turns dreaming, reading, and swinging in here nonstop. As for the grown-ups, we were super grateful to our new stainless steel percolator by GSI Outdoors. Once we got the hang of percolating our morning brew, it was well worth the investment.nature scavenger hunt printed out before we left home. And everyone was excited by geocaching, which turned all our walks into treasure hunts. This is a must do!
