I love to camp. In fact, if not for work obligations, I would be backcountry camping every week of October (as well as a backpacking trip the first week of November). Camping—especially in the backcountry—is a serious hobby. Not just in that I take it seriously, but that one wrong decision could be life-changing. As I result, I’m very interested in camping gear and can easily spend half of a Saturday browsing at my local REI.
