The laughter and merriment of the campers around us has begun to taper off and is gradually being replaced by the increasingly persistent patter of rain on our tent. The once smokey air now heavy with the smell of rain fills my lungs with a feeling of cleansing and renewal.
The children are tucked into their sleeping bags on the upper level of our bi-level tent system and the soft glow of LEDs illuminate the inside enough to let zoe get in a few pages of her book before bedtime.
This my friends is what it’s all about…
I slept on the lower level in my new ground tent from Napier Outdoors that connects to the truck tent via a nylon sleeve.
There is more than enough room in the 8×8 addition and I was comfortable on my cot opposite the folding camp kitchen I setup inside of it. The Sportz Link, as they call it, really enabled us to up our camping game!
With the Link we have extra living space for playing games, watching movies or just relaxing and it really shines as a trip saver if it rains!
With the camp kitchen indoors, food prep was a breeze. I had room to get everything ready for the fire free from bugs and the sink made sure our dishes and hands were clean!
Keeping clean and germ free is very important while camping. Nothing ruins a trip faster than a run in with the “stomach flu”! The huge steaks we had for dinner were delicious and the kids ate every bite! I had no idea children could eat that much meat!
After cleanup it started to rain. We put on a couple movies and got cozy. The tent system kept us dry through the night with no leaks.
The morning found us well rested and hungry. The fair for today was to be hotcakes and sausage followed by some archery time and croissant wrapped hotdogs for lunch!
It was a fantastic trip with good food and fantastic company. As I said at the beginning, this is what it’s all about!
Thanks for reading!
