It’s funny - when you start a company that even is vaguely related to travel, you learn a lot about how people plan their vacations. Yes, getaways are for the most part made for recharging, but the actual planning process is still kind of a hassle. (Does anyone else have a million tabs open?)
Camping season is just beginning here in Northern California. We just got back from our first local excursion. This was the first time we took out our full kit in 2016 as our last trip was more of a hybrid camping-luxury-hotel-culture excursion. Getting your gear in order and planning for a trip especially the first time during a season has a few special quirks, but I think there is a pretty standard 5 step process to get ready.
