Sleeping under the stars, in a hammock, sounds like a remarkable outdoor dream—and that it is. Well, at least it can be. Truth is, many campers hike out with hammocks and nice, light packs with the expectation of falling soundly asleep to the relaxing sound of crickets. While the nature soundtrack part is guaranteed, many campers aren’t falling asleep (and staying asleep) in their hammocks as easily as they’d like to. Why?
A good hammock bug net can mean the difference between a good night’s sleep and a night full of heat and frustration. On hot nights, many campers prefer to sleep outdoors. A hammock is the perfect way to enjoy a hot summer’s night outside. But what about the plague of insects that are buzzing about during the warmer summer months, especially during dusk and dawn?

Heading out on your first backpacking trip and scanning around the internet for what to bring? We’ve all been there. First-time backpackers may feel a bit nervous about bringing too little, or too much. No one wants to leave something behind, just like no one wants to carry something for days that they never end up using. But worry not!
The tent is at the forefront of many campers’ minds when heading off into the woods for a weekend. After all, sleeping in a tent (as opposed to a house or fancy RV) is really what makes camping, well, camping! Truth is, having a tent-option is important. Packability, comfort, warmth, and convenience are all components of a tent that are highly sought after.
Weight is always on the mind of thru-hikers. Ever been out on a long multi-day hike with a backpack that’s obviously overweight? Shoulder pain, winded lungs, a straining neck—it’s no fun. These are all-too-common complaints about lugging around too much stuff. So how can we ensure lightweight treks that don’t cause stiff, over-encumbered legs and backs?
Hammock camping, as opposed to conventional tent camping, is sometimes the most ideal option for campers. If you’re trying to save weight on a backpacking trip, or if you’re heading into the thicket of a forest during a warm summer weekend, you may want to avoid the usual frustrations of tent camping.
Pets are a big part of the family. That’s why when you go camping it’s hard to leave your furry friends at home. Taking a pet on any outing will have challenges, but if you prepare, prepare, and prepare some more, it will be the adventure of a lifetime!
