You will place your sleeping bag on top of the pads.&#13;<br><br>If you are new to camping or hiking, you should choose summer as the ideal season for you. If such is the case, you will not need an expensive sleeping bag for your outdoor camping gear. A lightweight rectangular sleeping bag will be comfortable for you. &#13;<br><br>If it is too warm, sleeping <a href="">Sleeping Bags</a> on top of it with a sheet or blanket is recommended. Of course, you need to bring pillow and blankets for a good night sleep. Hiking or camping is more enjoyable when you have complete outdoor camping gear.&#13;[[/html]] - Comments: 0

Camping - Fun And Adventure - 10 Jun 2016 13:48


[[html]]Camping for most people means a tent and sleeping on a mat on the ground. If that doesn't really appeal to you, then camping in an RV is what you need. It is the ultimate camping adventure. <br><br>RV's come in many sizes and shapes. They start with campers that fit in the back of a pickup truck. These can have full kitchens, beds, a shower and toilet in them. <br><br><img src="" width="371" /><br><br>Next there are van conversions called Class B motorhomes that are basically a cargo van converted into a camping vehicle. These can have a raised roof for more head room. They also contain the same amenities as the truck camper. <br><br>Next up is the Class C motorhome. The front end looks like a pickup truck, but the similarity ends there. There is a sleeper extension over the cab and the back end looks like any motorhome you are probably familiar with. Basically a cargo box with windows, but much prettier. The Class C has all the amenities of home. A kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room. You could live in a Class C. <br><br>The next step us is the Class A motorhome. This is roomiest of all motorized RVs. These motorhomes are like a mini one bedroom apartment. They are fully self contained. From the queen sized bed to the dinette that seats four people you find luxury. A refrigerator and stove are complimented by a microwave oven. You might even have an ice maker capable of making over 20 pounds of ice a day. Party ready! <br><br>If that weren't enough choices, there are still the trailers. First is the travel trailer you can pull behind a larger sedan or SUV. Then the 5th wheel trailer that hooks into the back of a pickup truck. Both of these trailers are equally as luxuriant as the best motorhome. An advantage is they cost a lot less. <br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>You can buy new or used. Whichever way you choose, you should do a lot of research on the internet first. Learn all you can about RVing. There are RV forums that you can find by doing a search in your favorite search engine. <br><br>When you decide that an RV might be for you, attend an RV show or two. There are major RV shows at fairgrounds and stadiums where many dealers and <a href="">Hiking sleeping bags</a> vendors are selling every type of RV there is. There are also local RV shows usually put on by one or two dealers to show and sell some of their inventory. <br><br>If you really are not sure you would like to spend $40,000 or $250,000 on a hobby you are not sure you would like, buy a used RV. You can get into RVing in a 34 foot used Class A motorhome for under $10,000. <br><br>The older and larger the motorhome the less fuel efficient it will be. You may get 5 to 7 miles per gallon on many older motorhomes. 7-9 mpg is realistic for mid 1990's motorhomes and up to 12 miles a gallon on new ones[[/html]] - Comments: 0

10 Really Cool Sleeping Bags - 09 Jun 2016 14:37


[[html]]Sleeping bags are an essential piece of kit for any camper. However, they can be pretty boring, the following article is a list of really cool camping bags that will put the Fun into camping. The will be really great to show your friends and who knows, you could end up sharing it with someone.<br><br>There are customer comments - warnings, really -that one female customer was mounted by a real bear during a camping trip with this sleeping bag. I can see <a href="">Camping sleeping bag</a> the slogan now - "So lifelike that a bear might rape you…" Kidding aside, this is a really fun, amazing comfortable sleeping bag that's truly one of a kind.<br><br>Source<br><br>For less than a C-note you can count sheep in the belly of a Tauntaun - the strange omnivores from Star Wars. The attached 'light saber' disembowels the Tauntaun and leaves a cozy space for you to slide into. What's funny is created this bag as a practical joke…but visitors actually wanted to buy one, and who is to deny them? I would personally drop the $100 for one of these in a heartbeat.<br><br>Source<br><br>This is like a Snuggie 2.0. You slip into your sleeping bag to catch a few Z's, and don't even have to take it off to make your way to the outhouse! About $120 scores you a SELK sleeping bag of your own.<br><br>Source<br><br>For the big ballers with outdoorsman characteristics, this is the sleeping bag for you. Full steam sauna…water jets…misting device… all designed into the sleeping bag. I haven't tried one on myself but it must feel like heaven on earth (no pun intended).<br><br>Source<br><br>This sleeping bag is the stuff that nightmares are made of. Then again, I'm pretty sure the boogie monster himself doesn't have the chutzpa to mess with Jabba the Hut. For the record, the head is detachable so you can actually sleep in this thing without suffocating.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Source<br><br>This is the Transformer of sleeping bags, it starts as a dress but when you're ready it inflates into a sleeping bag. Get a dress and a sleeping bag for the same dollar (who can beat that?). Oh, and don't ask why a guy was chosen to model a sleeping bag dress.<br><br>Source<br><br>Alyona Makkeva has a good heart, even if she does have a dirty mind. Her idea for supporting newlyweds is to sell these "nude" sleeping bags. You can even write love letters right on the pseudo private parts of your significant other. Definitely worth a closer look.<br><br>Source<br><br>I'm just not getting how this could be even remotely comfortable, but in an emergency (which is what Cocoon is designed for) it might be helpful. Especially in snake infested areas. Or if an army of midget zombies are after you. Not on the market (yet) but when it is I'll be the first in line.<br><br>Source<br><br>Once that campfire dies out, it can get chilly fast. If you travel with your netbook, like I do, that's when you start to worry. Instead of snuggling up to you laptop, get it its own sleeping bag… which is fittingly called a Naptop.<br><br>Source<br><br>Lap dogs lose body heat like drool. So, in a way, it's the humane thing to buy your dog a sleeping bag. In another way, you might be a bit neurotic, but no point in barking up that tree.<br><br><img src="" width="271" /><br><br>Source[[/html]] - Comments: 0
