There’s nothing like going camping. The fresh air, the cold waters, the stars and the campfire… ahhhh! If I had unlimited time, money and consistent access to food and bevvies I could probably live camping forever. If I don’t get outside often enough I start to go a little stir crazy, and I plan camping trips as often as possible. This winter I got to the point I couldn’t wait any longer and we went out for New Years and my birthday. I had never winter camped before, and while it was a bit chilly it was still really fun and exactly what I needed. The stars were amazing and the tree that fell in the night didn’t hit us so I counted them lucky! Just thinking about it makes me want to pack up and head out again right this second! Haha! Actually though, I have been planning an epic adventure for this summer, super stoked!
I’ve finally have almost all of the gear I need to take off and live in the woods whenever I feel the need. I’m pretty much good to go any time any place, and it’s all about having good reliable gear. A partner who loves the outdoors as much as I do really helps too! I love hearing about cool new inventions and outdoor tricks that make the trips just that much more awesome. While I’m not the type to run out and buy new gear all the time, I love hearing about whats new and exciting in the camping world these days. I ran across this video a while back, and some of the inventions are really awesome! My personal favourites are number 3 and 4. I’ve been waiting for a solar powered generator to come out for quite a while now! I knew it was just a matter of time till someone figured it out. The possibilities are endless with what that could be used for! I’m super stoked about it! lol!

Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature’s darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
