Unplug and reconnect. Don’t be overly productive and always busy because it is tiring to always be on-call. We are becoming slaves to the digital devices that disconnect us from our own experiences. Instead of always sharing your expeirence with others, connect to experiences yourself on a deeper level, share your experiences through face-to-face conversations. It’s amazing how much space you can find when you let the real world back in. Sometimes it’s a bit of disconnect, that really helps you reconnect.
Conical, or “cone-shaped” bell tents are not unique to the Native Americans. Conical camping tents have been in use by Native peoples around the Northern Hemisphere in varying teepee designs for thousands of years. Whether you call it a Tipi, Chum, Goahti, Lavvu, Kohte, Nentsi, Lotus Belle or any other number of names, a conical shape is the most aerodynamic and weight-bearing in terms of shedding rain, snow, and wind. These concial bell tent shapes are also the most heat, space, and weight efficient camping designs, offering the highest margin of tensile strength with the smallest amount of structural support for camping tents.

New Zealand camping gives many reasons to get outside and go luxury camping. Not everyone thinks about glamping when the seasons change and the leaves start to change color. Schools are in and out of holidays and in Winter we start nesting indoors. However, SNM thinks anytime of year is the best time to get outside camping and enjoy the changes of the season. Here’s our top 5 reasons to go luxury camping.
Cool days. During the summer it can be too hot to get out and explore, you just want to laze around in the shade or go swimming to cool off. Cool days are perfect for hiking and biking. Exploring the desert in the summer can be unbearable under the sun. Now you can take a hike without melting on the trail.
Cooler days bring chilly evenings, and curling up by the campfire is even cozier. Check out our blog on how to build a campfire for all the tips! Sleeping in a tent is more comfortable without hot and sticky summer nights.
Beautiful changing autumn colors. Watching the fall leaves change color is one of nature’s magical moments. It’s breathtaking. The sound of crunching leaves under your feet feels whimsical. Since the foliage is less dense, you’ll have a better chance to see the wildlife. Explore the best places to see fall foliage in the United States and Europe.
Less crowded. The campgrounds are quieter. There’s more space for yourself to unwind and enjoy the outdoors, without overcrowded campgrounds. It’s a perfect time to visit some of the more popular national parks like Yosemite or Yellowstone. Less bugs. Hardly any bugs to bug you while on your campout. Cooler weather slows bugs movements or stops them entirely, so all those mosquitos, no-see-ums, horseflies, gnats, won’t be making you itch. The Price is Right! Many campgrounds lower their prices once the peak, high season is over. Summertime is high season for most campgrounds in national and regional parks. You can enjoy more camping possibilities at more affordable rates.
Take advantage of fall camping when autumn leaves start to fall and the crowds are gone! Pack an extra sweater and enjoy a good meal of fall camping cooking with good friends.

Cotton Canvas vs Synthetic Plastic Camping Tents. What is the best material for a camping tent?
Comparing cotton canvas tents vs. synthetic plastic tents across eight categories helps you consider when deciding what kind of camping tent is best for you:
Cotton: Humidity is the most critical factor in environmental comfort. Unlike synthetics, canvas allows small moisture particles from breath, sweat, and cooking to escape.
Plastic: Non-breathable vapor-impermeable fabric prevents moisture from sweat and breath from escaping. High humidity means sweat won’t evaporate, making it feel even hotter inside than outside.
Cotton Wins! Cotton: Canvas tents can be safely used with wood burning camp stoves keeping you camping in comfort through all four seasons. Plastic: Plastic melts and burns easily making them incompatible with stoves and unsafe to heat.
Cotton Wins! Cotton: Rain causes the fibers of the canvas to swell. The surface tension of a rain drop prevents the water from passing through the tight weave of quality canvas, keeping you dry, naturally. Plastic: Plastics do not absorb water well. Initially rain will shed, but after the fabric has been saturated it can hold moisture and further limit breathability, increasing humidity, making the inside feel damp.
Cotton Wins! Cotton: Canvas is tough, rip resistant, and repairable. Pre-treated and re-treatable, a properly maintained canvas tent can last for years. Plastic: Ripping and tearing easily, synthetic fabric is nearly impossible to repair. Although cheap to buy, any damage can mean a ruined trip and a total tent replacement.
Cotton Wins! Cotton: In addition to the natural breathability of cotton canvas, CanvasCamp tents are equipped with large no-see-um mesh covered vents and windows, and some with 360 degrees of mesh wall. Plastic: Because synthetic fabric doesn’t breathe, plastic tents are entirely dependent on small vents to release humidity and circulate air. Often blocked by rain flys and sleeping bags, vents are often insufficient and inconvenient.
Cotton: A rounded design, robust canvas, and burly steel stakes and poles stands up to high winds, driving rain, and blowing snow.
Plastic: Poles with a smaller diameter than a Slurpee straw, a thin plastic tent membrane, and miniature aluminum stakes simply don’t do the job when you need them most.
Cotton Wins! Cotton: Quality canvas has a protective treatment to withstand sun damage and can be easily retreated to maintain that protection for years to come. Plastic: Damaging UV rays degrade synthetic fabric quickly while canvas endures. Once weakened, plastic fibers are prone to breakage and aftermarket treatments can do little to prolong the life of the tent.
What’s not to love about camping hammocks? They fit two, but is majestic to relax and unwind in. It’s like a comfy, swinging sofa you can take anywhere.
Camp coffee or cowboy coffee is one thing, but having a luxurious cup of French press coffee while camping is a game changer.
