Free Reading Camper's Guide to Outdoor Pursuits: Finding Safe, Nature-Friendly and Comfortable Passage Through Wild Places –

A witty and insightful, user friendly guide that is vital for both the once a year camper and the rugged outdoorsman The Camper s Guide to Outdoor Pursuits provides readers with thorough information they can use, along with tips and tricks from experienced outdoor enthusiasts Packed full of illustrations, icon assisted tips that provide important summary information, and humorous scenarios, this book is highly informative and very entertaining. So, I m about a third of the way through this book Although it does have some useful tips, the writing style is incredibly annoying An example, from a section on whistles to bring on a camping trip Eric once had a wooden whistle but it wooden whistle Then he got a steel whistle and it steel wooden whistle Then he got a tin whistle now he tin whistle The authors have also been kind enough to create a fictional family, the Stumps, to discuss the selection of pretty much every piece of outdoor equipment An example, as the Stumps try to choose sleeping bags Holly shared her concern that the sleeping bag was roomy enough, I hate that claustrophobic feeling from tight fitting mummy shaped sleeping bags Besides, I never camp in weather below 40F Oh yes she cooed bashfully, I also want a bag that can zip together with yours, honey Enough said, I think.
