So, they told me to tell you some stuff about camping gear here, but I'd really rather talk about armadillos. I can't stop thinking about them. I Googled it, and I can't find anything about armadillos using tents and camp stoves or anything so I guess I'll just say some really super serious and boring things about camping gear. I'm already over this.
First up, there are tents. Tents are really boring. I almost just fell asleep. Obviously, what kind of tent you need depends on what kind of camping you plan to do and how many people are going to sleep in it. I told you it was boring. If you're planning on doing some laid back weekend car camping with a few friends and a bunch of armadillos, I'd check out some of the larger family camping tents
. There's space for all your gear, and since you aren't planning to carry it in your pack, you can get away with the heavier weight. Plus the zippers are really fancy.
For your camping stuff collection, you'll probably also need a sleeping bag and sleeping pad. Sleeping pads make you more comfy while you sleep, but they also help you retain your body heat. So, a sleeping pad is a must for colder weather camping. As far as sleeping bags go, there are like a ton of different kinds, like down sleeping bags and synthetic fill sleeping bags for a whole bunch of temperature ranges, and I don't feel like getting into it, so check it out yourself.
As for all the rest of the stuff you need to sit around and sing Bob Dylan songs around a fire with your parents, there's a bunch of that, too. Check out camping storage like stuff sacks and compression sacks: I don't really know what they do, so ask somebody else. If you're going to eat while you're striking out wilderness-style, and I guess most people do, check out some camp cookware. By cookware I mean camp and backpacking stoves, pots and pans, dishes and utensils, and water bottles and storage, not those funny chef hats.
