As we approach the end of Summer, many Central/Northern States and Canadian Provinces can expect a break from the scorching heat. With comfortable temperatures, dry ground conditions, and COVID-19 restrictions slowly lightening, let this Fall be the season you take your first camping trip and discover your next adventure. Here are our top 5 reasons why you should take the leap.
After months of cancelled plans, working from home, and self isolation, we all deserve to get out and make some quality memories with our loved ones. Whether it’s taking the kids out for their first s’more, a fishing trip with mom or dad, or hitting the open road for an outdoor adventure with friends, it’s important to find safe ways to reconnect with everyone we’ve missed during quarantine. Taking a camping trip to the great outdoors is one of the safest ways to make lasting memories without sacrificing social distancing.
Since COVID-19 began, our cell phones, laptops, and TV’s have been some of our only sources of connectivity and entertainment. It’s important to take a break from all of the technology (and blue light!). Not only is it beneficial for your eyes, neck, and overall health to put the phone down and opt for more physical activity, but it can be equally important to give your mind a break from the stress of everyday life. Once you get a glimpse of your first mountain or smell your first campfire, you’ll thank yourself for getting out.

Many of us have had to rearrange our budgets over the last few months. Whether reduced hours or layoffs may have changed your plans for luxurious travels, taking a break to explore local trails, campgrounds, canyons, beaches, etc. doesn’t have to break the bank. With Napier’s Backroadz Truck Tent coming in at under $200, you could travel from coast-to-coast for the price of one night in a hotel.
With the state of 2020 – it looks like international travel may be out of the question for the foreseeable future. With many workplaces not allowing for vacation days to roll over into 2021, there’s no better time than now to take the time to discover the beauty your country has to offer! Many people overlook the amount of travel they can do domestically. With our compiled list of regional campgrounds it’s never been easier to plan your next adventure.
Here at Napier, we’re all about spontaneous adventures. When we first designed our vehicle tents, we wanted to make something compact, easy to setup, and highly versatile. If a longer vacation is out of the question right now, don’t let that stop you from getting out and taking a much-deserved break. Get out of your comfort zone this weekend and explore your wild side!
