Now as we all get a little older, having the small comforts can feel like a huge gamechanger. It’s about the little things, right? And the same can definitely be said about camping.

It can be difficult to see the appeal of walking around outside with all of your necessary belongings only to end up further from the place you started from, sometimes intending to sleep in the middle of nowhere. There's more to it than you may think...
