Best at 1024 x 768

    Over the years I have gone on many camping trips, both good and bad, and I have learned a great deal.  In this guide, I will try to share some of the lessons and tricks I have learned over the years.
    My tips are divided into two categories: Tips to use before you leave (choosing gear, preparing gear, etc.), and tips to use while you are camping (setting up your tent, cooking, etc.).
