As we head into the summer months and states slowly begin reopening economies, campsites are beginning to open as well for use again as well. In California,28 state parkshave opened up limited campground availability. While limited, this is a welcomed reopening that many campers and adventurers would be pleased to see, including us.
Camping can be an intimidating activity for someone who has never done it before or for someone who has had bad experiences in the past. After all, why would any sane person want to spend a weekend away from their perfectly secure home, stocked fridge and comfy bed in exchange for sleeping on the ground, exposed to wild animals?!
When it comes to camping, one of the things we love most about it is the food. You’ve probably heard someone (or us) say before that everything tastes better when you’re in the outdoors, and it’s absolutely true. But the one meal that really trumps them all while camping is breakfast. There’s something about waking up at sunrise, stepping out of your tent into the brisk morning air and cooking up a warm and hearty breakfast.
After the first few weeks of shelter-at-home, Americans seem anxious to start traveling again. But with airlines reporting a96% drop in air travel, the likelihood that things will return to normal this Summer seems like a far away future. This is why when it comes to leisure travel, we believe the future is road trips, not air travel.
Just last week, the State of California released an odd and specific list of outdoor recreational activities that are safe to partake in during this time in addition to somewhat vague guidelines around how to safely spend time outside.
Sheltering-at-home has kept us indoors, and to further encourage social distancing, majority of county, state and national parks have closed their gates to camping. But that doesn’t mean your camping adventures need to wait until everything returns back to normal. But how can you go camping when everywhere you might go is closed?
