by Stella Marin 3 years ago in product review

These camping accessories will afford you more time to focus on enjoying nature.

Once upon a time, roughing it in the great outdoors meant just that, roughing it. A tent, sleeping bag, and a pan to cook with over the fire were all you really needed to go camping, and while keeping it simple is still a good idea when packing for your next camping trip, it doesn’t hurt to bring along some of these modern gadgets to make the trip more convenient and enjoyable. If you plan on camping for more than a night or two, these camping accessories will afford you more time to focus on enjoying nature instead of wrangling with erecting a tent for an hour or wishing and hoping your evening bonfire will ignite.
