A lot of times a higher shoe is a little bit better, for the more ultra terrain you’re messing with, or if you’re carrying a heavier load, a shoe with more support, is going to be better for you in the long run.

    How to Pack for a Weekend Camping Trip : How to Select Shelter Equipment for Camping

Are you going to take a tent, a hammock, or are you going to build your own shelter out there. The easiest thing to do is to take either a hammock, or a tent. When you pack your tent, instead of taking and rolling it to where it’s a long cylinder, most of the times you’re going to take and compress your tent down. You don’t want to roll it, just stuff it into a stuff…

    Be An Outdoor Ambassador: How To Implement Low-Impact Camping Skills

    We go outside to wander and explore the adventurous spirit within ourselves. As a sea kayaker who spends a lot of nights and a tent, I want to encourage you to be mindful of the impact of your camp, and follow the ethics of Leave No Trace to preserve these outdoor places for generations to come. When camping in a popular area, I choose an established site rather than creating a new location which minimizes my impact.
