Camping trip my be one of the best decisions you make when looking for an escape from hustle and bustle of an urban environment.
It may not be at first everyone’s choice for a weekend escape or a vacation trip, but camping, eider adventure camping, backpacking or canoe camping in wilderness, just as in organized commercial campgrounds for more than a day is, still depends on a location, time usually spend in nature with just sufficient resources, while presumably sheltering in the open air wrapped only into a sleeping bag or having as a roof tin liner of a tent, maybe in a motor-home or in some sort of a primitive striped down to bare essentials wood cabin.
No matter what type of a camping you are getting into you will need at least some camping equipment. If there’s no plans for a hard roof shelter than include a tent, sleeping bag, food and food preparation equipment, water or access to clean water, etc.
