Budget Outdoor Adventures
Camping is so inexpensive for the sheer entertainment factor. Reconnecting with nature can be so rewarding and good for your health. Sleeping outside doesn’t need to cost anything really. Stargazing, campfires, and listening to the wildlife are all still free.
Outdoor Gear – these purchases will be the most expensive part of your trip, but you’ll be able to use this same gear for decades of travel exploring the outdoors.
A whole weekend for under $100, seriously?
