Let's go camping!

I don't know about you but I'm enjoying all of this bountiful sunshine lately. It's perfect for taking weekend family trips in our new travel trailer! And it just so happens I have some awesome camper friendly products to share with you that are great for all kinds of camping!

The Enbrighten Solar Light Bundle from Jasco is the perfect answer to your outdoor lighting needs. USB and Solar Power pair with the included Enbrighten USB Solar Panel for a reliable and eco-friendly power source, or for use with any standard USB-A port or adapter. Either way it empowers you to experience illumination without the need for an outlet. With 14 color modes for atmosphere, special occasions, holidays, tailgating and more – all of which can be selected and timed via the attached controller.  Set features 24 durable acrylic bulbs that are impact-resistant and are designed to withstand year-round exposure to the elements. Enbrighten cafĂ© lights are long-life, cool to the touch and energy-efficient.

Warmer weather is here, which means the mosquitoes and ticks are, too. Luckily, EarthKind® has you covered. Their new Stay Away Mosquitoes® spray is a DEET-free, EPA registered, non-flammable and water-resistant formula made with Picaridin, which is bio identical to pepper, CDC recommended and reliably effective. Stay Away Mosquitoes is unscented and skin-friendly, meaning its gentle on the skin, without the worries of harsh chemicals. Stay Away Mosquitoes® gives 14-hour highly-effective protection from mosquitoes and ticks, while protecting against biting flies, gnats and chiggers for 8 hours. Not only will it protect you from unsightly, itchy bites, but also from more serious diseases such as - ZIKA, Lyme Disease, West Nile Virus, Chikungunya and Dengue.

EarthKind® also has you covered when it comes to those pesky ants and rodents too! Simply remove the outer plastic wrapper and place the Stay Away® pouches in areas you want to keep free of ants/rodents. Do not place directly on furniture or finished surfaces as product may stain. Replace scent pouches when scent has diminished. The product lasts up to 30 days in cold-storage areas. Length of effectiveness depends on air exchange rates and the temperature condition of storage areas.

It’s not a true camping experience until everyone has sat around the fire, and that means plenty of wood. While you usually can’t cut down live trees in state and national parks without a permit, dead wood is another matter. But, cutting those pieces down to size can be a chore without the Pocket Chainsaw from Sportsman Industries. An Amazon superstar, this 3-foot length of actual chainsaw chain has bi-directional, self-cleaning teeth so it cuts in two directions with every pull on the sturdy handles, slicing through a 3-inch branch in less than 10 seconds! Once the wood is cut, use the magnesium fire starter included with each purchase to get the night going.

When you're camping in a remote area without any outside lighting it can get pretty dark once the sun goes down. These two motion-sensor lights from That's Clever are a great way to "shed a little light" on your path.

Stand Anywhere LightThe stand anywhere light, does just that.  Stand it anywhere and you now have motion sensored light to help you find your way.

Waterproof, with no moving or glass parts, it is the perfect, dependable light source for car camping, RVs and anywhere else you don’t want to rely on batteries, cords or the sun.
