Guide to Summer Vacation


Hit the road. Pitch a tent. Light a fire. There’s nothing more relaxing and revitalizing than an escape from the daily grind of work, commute, and tedious errands. This is especially true during the long sunny days and sweet breezes of the warm summer months. The whole point of getting away is to take a break from life’s stress, but just planning a summer vacation with your friends or family around work and school schedules could be stressful in itself. The key to a stress free vacation: preparation. Whether you’re going camping, fishing, hiking, or just hitting the road, having the right equipment can make all the difference. We put together this quick guide of products to help you prepare for quality rest and relaxation,  and travel with peace of mind. Bon voyage.
