This will probably come as no shock to those of you who know me in real life, but before I met A, I wasn’t terribly outdoorsy. I may have liked being outside, but something like camping would not have even been in the realm of possibility. Until A convinced me to go camping. We had the best time and it’s something we plan to do regularly when he gets home. The whole planning process of this trip did take some time, but if it wasn’t for looking into van insurance companies, finding out they work directly with the underwriters, planning the whole trip and making sure we had all the necessary tools and equipment before we set off, I don’t think it would have ran as smoothly as it did. Although we did nearly forget the camping hatchet which would have been disastrous. If we were to go again, we have agreed that we would like to go in an RV. One of our friends owns an RV and was recently telling us everything you need to know about buying an RV of your own. There are so many different things to consider such as what to know before extended warranty and how best to look after your vehicle.
Another important consideration is insurance. You will be on the road for a long time and you would want your trip to be eventful for all the right reasons. That said, a proper camper van insurance can cover for most if not all potential damages or accidents. Do your research accordingly and you are ready for the fun times on the road.
Nonetheless, I definitely cannot wait for the next camping trip. I tried to capture all the fun of that trip in my new camping care package.
I selected shimmery blue paper for my night sky and think everything really pops against it. The sparkly stars remind me so much of our weekend in the woods and catching glimpses of the sky through the trees. In our case, we had both dogs packed into the tent and made a lot of s’mores over our campfire.
I love this entire camping care package so much, but my favorite part may be the two decorated flaps. The hammock and deer are just so stinking precious! They add a touch of romance to the box because when you’re camping (and don’t have two dogs in the tent with you), it can be a little romantic.
If your loved one enjoys the great outdoors and is excited for their next big trip (with links to https://www.rent.is/blog/driving-in-iceland/ constantly shared with you as they put together their next adventure), then this would be the perfect care package for them. You could send trail mix, beef jerky, s’mores flavored snacks and even a pine air freshener to make them feel like they’re relaxing in the forest.
This camping care package is available in my shop right now. As always, it ships free and 10% of your total is donated to an organization that supports military families.
