We finally did it. Work and weather co-operated to let my son and I spend a night under the stars — for real.
We’ve been fans of uncamping the past few weeks. We just get out of town for a day of hiking, s’more making, fishing, and adventures before returning home before bed. It was great to have a real night with nature.
I’ll admit I’m a city slicker.
While I enjoy camping with my son, I do like my creature comforts. I’m not so crazy as to go out and spend $100 000 on a huge RV or trailer—we stay in a tent when we camp— but I do add some tricks so we don’t totally “rough it” in the woods.
Check out the things I use (and wish I had) to make camping feel, well, less like camping.
