Ah, the great outdoors. Amid a global pandemic, it’s one of the few safe places where folks can get away and take a break from their routines. 

And that also means that there’s a lot of first time campers hitching tents, driving up windy roads and stoking fires, even if they’re not supposed to because of fire advisories. 

If you went camping for the first time because of COVID-19, we want to hear about your mishaps as well as your triumphs. Where did you go? What were the toughest or funniest experiences you had? And was it worth it in the end? Call us at 866-893-5722.
