I love museums that show how people lived their lives and why I love visiting historic houses, grand & modest. This is another good one. Thanks, Rob.

Re: Hiking Sani Pass, Lesotho, on a Budget

DrFumblefinger ·
That sure looks like an amazing (and very difficult) hike, Travel with Lamb! I wished I'd been using trekking poles starting with my teens. They take tremendous strain off your knees, especially when carrying a heavy load like you were. My knees sadly show the effect of decades of hiking and backpacking. Given how far this is from home and such, I know I'll never do this hike, but you've taken me there so I thank you for that!

Important Winter Camping Trips

Ruby Daub ·
Camping in winter feels like freezing in the chilled atmosphere, and therefore, many people prefer camping in summers. But, if you think otherwise, you can enjoy the real beauty of nature in winter. Trees have shed their leaves, rivers and lakes are frozen and it looks just beautiful outside if you see the scenery. Winters offer a completely different landscape, which adds to the beauty of the surrounding. Even when it snows, winter can be fully enjoyed outdoors. You can find lots of people...

Re: RV Popularity Surges—Here's Why!

Amateuremigrant ·
I guess the experience in the UK in particular echoes this growth but for quite different reasons. We have been seeing RV purchases (and hire), rocket with the windfall maturity of pension schemes related to final salaries - no longer available in most jobs, but the govt and utilities companies have large lump sums and pretty good income for life. The lump sum buys the RV and day to day expenses can be covered by putting your empty home on Airbnb ! Even if you don't have the pension, if...

Re: Important Winter Camping Trips

Amateuremigrant ·
A big temptation among new campers is to dive into your bag with some of your day clothes still on - the insulation value of keeping a fresh outfit just for sleeping is immense. If you have a small fire, put a saucer sized rock in it; when you retire, (after a short brisk stomp around to get circulation going), you can wrap the stone in a dirty t-shirt and put it in the bottom of your bag. It'll keep your feet warm for ages !

The Best Camping Gear to Bring When Camping or Backpacking

harry ·
There is nothing worse than finally leaving your job after what appears like the longest time ever, driving forever and a day to your camp spot and beginning to set up camp... and then realize, "Damn it! I forgot the headlamps within the lightbox in the garage area!" Right now it's getting darkish, your tent isn't yet set up and yes, you forgot the lighter to start out the fire, great. Planning a camping out trip is always exciting and stress filled. I discover that I could hardly ever rest...
