Everything You Need for The Occasional Camping Trip:

In depth reviews and comparisons of the latest gear with none of the sales-bullcrap. When it's time to give an honest review, we don't mince words.

We're not huge fans of hiking or getting sweaty. But we LOVE camping. We show you how to cook, camp, and survive in the wilderness while maintaining a sense of luxury.


Stories and recollections of our personal adventures and mishaps.

"Camping is fun, as long as there's wifi and my car is less than 30 minutes away."
