Family outdoor adventure is something I love, but I have to admit that I was never really itching to sleep in a tent. It didn’t take me long to realize that I better re-embrace the tent camping tips of my youth if my family was going to experience wilderness areas and get away from the crowds.
Lessons from 10 days on the road in a rented RV.
A vacation in an RV rental seems like the perfect getaway. What could be better than an epic road trip to an amazing destination, enjoying nature that surrounds you without the need to set up a tent or stock a cabin?

Now that you’ve read up on Backcountry camping, your next question might be “what types of backpacking food am I going to eat out there in the woods?”

I love a great guidebook. But, lets be honest… It's getting more difficult to find a truly outstanding guidebook. I didn't expect to love the USA National Parks Guide by Moon – but once I opened it and started reading I was hooked!
