Tailgating after a hike

After a long day hike, an afternoon climb or a 5 to 6-hour bike ride getting back into the car and traveling back home (usually in traffic) can be a huge downer. You might be hungry for some hot food, or maybe wearing moist clothes from sweating or being caught in a storm - either way - the drive can be quite unpleasant. When planning your adventurous day, the drive home can be the last thing on your mind - but fear not! We have all you need to make that journey back just a little bit more bearable!

Different forms of camping styles provide an array of ways to enjoy the outdoors. From car camping, to backpacking into the wilderness, to kayaking to an island for some solitude, each camping method requires different gear and prerequisites. Car camping is a great way to enjoy the outdoors even if you are in a campsite next to someone else you can still hear the crickets at night and enjoy the stars in the sky. (A nearby bathroom is always nice too!!). While this may be considered an easier form of camping, a decent amount of gear is still required to really enjoy the night in style.
