What is better than camping?


Here at Lone Loon Song, we are passionate about encouraging and inspiring everyone to “get out there!”. Of course, we mean camping. (In the great outdoors. You know. Camping and the outdoors? )

As a result, we’ll be talking about what we have found to be useful stuff when camping.) Because of these and other reasons, we started this blog.

Why are we writing about camping?

To begin with: We would be happy to be useful to our friends, whether they are just beginning, or avid campers. (If you are just camping curious, be sure to check out our cheapskate camping blog.) Secondly, everyone has something to offer, so if you’re feeling so inclined, drop us a line and include your best camping hacks. Nothing would make us happier than to have a community of like-minded outdoors folks like you.

  4. We can’t explain this one, but we firmly believe that food tastes better outside. Call us crazy. Take a number.
  5. We get a great sleep. Something about being away from electricity and screens resets our body clocks. (We’ve expanded considerably on this in “The Benefits of Camping.”)

One last thought (Before you “De-camp”)

(See what we did there? We’re not above a few cheap yucks. You can get away with “Dad jokes” around the campfire. You just can.)

We realize that camping may be a little intimidating if you are starting out, so we are here to help. If we can help you or even inspire or entertain you please don’t hesitate to contact us, ask a question or suggest topics for future articles. This is really helpful for us. We will add content at least once a week. We hope our friends will find this useful, or at least entertaining.

Here are some of our articles that we hope you might find useful:
