Modern Day Camping Gear

Camping in this modern day and age can be a lot of fun, with so many new products to choose from, no need to worry about getting lost anymore, did you know that the most basic GPS device on a phone does not need a cell phone signal? I know I was surprised to see the GPS working just fine on my iPhone the other day whilst up in the mountains far away from civilization.

Solar power has come a long way in the last few years, some very creative people have come up with some ways to ensure you can recharge your small appliances far away from any normal power supply. Filter water from streams and rivers is another thing that is now easy to do. Below you will find a selection of ideas that will enhance any camping trip allowing you or your loved ones to go just a little farther in to the wild without sacrificing safety or comfort.
