Propane vs. Gas: The Camper’s Debate

Eat Well While Enjoying the Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors is a stunning place to hike, explore, and commune with nature. It is also a haven where you can stop, take a breath, and inhale everything Mother Nature has to offer. However, the one thing many do not understand is that they can also ‘inhale’ come extremely good food, if only they had the right information and tips when it came to planning and preparing food for their backpacking trip. Even the backpacking fan knows that, other than water and some extremely comfortable shoes, food is something you have to have. It is a piece of the outdoor “gear” that must be taken into consideration before venturing outside, because your body needs that fuel to keep going in order to enjoy each and every step of your journey.

Where to Vacation? Go Big or Stay Home!

We speak about luxury vacations, budget vacations, vacations that are fun for the kids, and many more areas of travel at this time of year. But there is also a category that many do not touch upon because they “assume” it is far too difficult for those on a budget to be able to enjoy these jaw-dropping wonders. However, whether you are a backpacker looking to “become a journeyman” and all you need is the price of the plane ticket; or one that is saving up for that “ultimate trip,” these are locations where either can go to create memories that will be among the greatest and grandest of their entire lives.
