Camping as a recreational activity entered into popular society over 100 years ago, before then it was an activity only carried out by the military. It is widely accepted that Thomas Hiram Holding was one of the first proponents of the activity, which is gaining in popularity every year and will continue to do so, through the effects of the current economic climate. Through his literature, Thomas Holding not only popularised camping for leisure, he also, designed the first truly portable tent, and founded what has now become the camping and caravan club.
There’s no doubt about it, camping is hard work. Organizing gear, taking the right equipment, preparing food for several days ahead and making sure there is enough to do to entertain the whole family—it can easily overwhelm. But it’s worth it! You’re guaranteed to make lasting memories, enjoy lots of laughs with the family, and get plenty of outdoor time.
When choosing a sleeping bag that is the best fit for you, it can be very overpowering due to all the different sizes and features which you must consider when buying your perfect sleeping bag.
