Charging Phones When Camping
keeping phones charged when camping or on outdoor trips can be crucial for safety in case of emergency, and for those that need to be in touch with work or children, it can be a real headache.
Could this be the simplest way to carry power with you – to have a battery pack, preferably one that can cope with rough and tumble?

This portable heater can be used in a large tent that won’t warm up with body heat, to make getting up in the morning more comfortable. Some one has to leap out and turn it on, so just snuggle up a little longer before making the morning brew!
The Wenzel Klondike is a good family basecamp tent that has been around for some years. The tent has a full mesh roof, a removable fly and an attached screen room. With plenty of space and room to stand up inside, a family of four to six people could have a great time in this two-room tent.
The screen room in front has a floor, can be used as a bug-free eating area, a sun room or as a second sleeping area if needed as the panels can be zip-closed for privacy.
Updated Colours in 2020: Light Grey/Taupe/ and Light Grey/Blue.

You’re reading up on the bits and pieces you might need to have a super adventure in a National Park and then – there’s that word again – you think you get the gist of it but, wait a minute, what exactly is a ‘dilly bushwrap’ anyway?
Don’t worry. I made that one up. There’s no such thing as a ‘dilly bushwrap’, though it has a nice ring to it – perhaps we can come up with something it can be 😉
The point is, sometimes you wish you could just get a quick answer to that question, and I am making something that will help, so do read on…
