Camping at Black Rock Desert, NV

Black Rock Desert CampingBlack Rock Desert in Northern Nevada is like a different planet. The giant salt flat, or Playa, has always fascinated me and when I’m there, I can’t help but pretend I’m on Mars. Its a perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the real world. It’s a place that makes you feel so isolated, you forget all your problems and obligations, and just exists in the moment. And sometimes when I go camping, I want that type of quiet. That’s why Black Rock Desert has been a regular camping spot for us and we always look forward to returning.

coastline view on kalalau trailThe Kalalau Trail stretches 11-miles along the Na Pali Coast on the island of Kauai.

Though it’s a difficult trail to hike, and in some sections, almost extreme, hiking the Kalalau Trail reveals breath taking views of the Na Pali Coast and is well worth the effort. (more…)

Dehydrated Apples Slices

Dehydrating your own food has many benefits, especially for camping. One of the biggest benefits of dehydrating your own food is being your own chef. You get to choose delicious and nutritional foods that are portioned to your appetite and are conveniently packaged by you, so cooking is made easy and light weight.  And most important, your not left at the mercy of the pre-packaged backpacking meals that lack flavor and are loaded with chemicals and preservatives.
