Essential Family Camper (Ragged Mountain Press Essential Series) (Paperback)
The vast majority of tent campers - or those thinking about trying it for the first time - would prefer the convenience, cost and comfort of a weekend family camping, often at a prepared tent site at a campground, with the support of a nearby car or van. This type of camping blends effortlessly into the lifestyle of a busy family wanting to get away from it all without competely cutting the cord. The Essential Family Camper, as with other titles in the Essential series, presents an engaging, thorough and highly visible introduction to the joys of sleeping and eating under the stars. Longtime campers Zora and David Aiken have gleaned hundreds of tips from a wide array of campers around the United States, and combined them with lessons they've learned during their own transformation from novice to experienced campers.
