Modern Camping

Two ordinary Joes, shaken by the idea of sleeping separated from the elements only by a thin skein of canvas and awakening daily to dew on the grass, created this blog because there is more to camping than camping.

We wondered what camping really was, whether it was defined by the presence of a tent or is a state of mind. We wondered how you got started and why anyone would want to do this. We wondered what technology had changed and whether there was a typical modern camper. We wondered how to camp with babies and what extreme camping would be like.

In other words, we couldn’t find a platform to discuss the interesting things about getting out to sleep in a damp field, so we are in the process of creating it.
