Camping Gear and Equipment
Thomas Hiram Holding, wrote The Campers Handbook in 1908, so that he could share his enthusiasm for the great outdoors with the world, and is considered by many to be the father of modern recreational camping. His urge to camp derived from his experiences as a boy which date back to the mid 1800’s.
Like Holding, for most of us, the desire to camp usually starts at a young age. It may be that be that as a child you watched John Wayne and Clint Eastwood movies and fell in love with the romantic notion of crossing the country with a horse and a sleeping bag. Or, maybe, on hot summer nights your mom would assemble the Coleman tent in the back yard and let you and a couple friends pretend you were in some far off land - and you were hooked! She gave you a flashlight, a warm sleeping bag, and some cookies, and checked on you every 10 minutes - the camping gear back then was pretty simple!
Today your camping gear consists of a three room Tetragon dome tent, a Coleman propane stove, and an inflatable air mattress. What happened?? Well, I’ll tell you. Over the years camping gear has become convenient and easy. Camping gear is lighter, more compact, and more durable than ever.
