The goal of National Camping Month is to get people outside whether that be a week-long camping trip, a one-night campground outing, or simply a backyard tent. Spending most of our lives indoors can lull us into a false sense of security. Sleeping in a tent allows us to hear the wind blow, the rain pitter patter, and the nocturnal critters go bump in the night. It puts us back on more equal footing with our fellow planetary inhabitants, and maybe it allows us to afford them a tad more respect.
