Hello and welcome to my website The Tent Kings. Camping has been a passion of mine since the very first time I went camping at 10 years old. Staying up late fishing, roasting marshmallows, or just swapping stories under the moonlight has always been my favorite pastime. There’s something magical about waking up to the smell of the fresh outdoor air.
Over the years I’ve had countless experiences outdoors that weren’t so magical however. From failing tents and lanterns to just complete unpreparedness, and let me tell you, its never fun. A lot of times camping is a very ambitious task, especially in mountainous areas and especially deserts as well. But camping can always be a fun and magical experience no matter where you are if you just know what to expect.
This is why I want to take my mistakes and turn them into your pleasure.
Growing up in Akron, Ohio has always had its ups and downs but being just about twenty minutes from the world renowned Cuyahoga Valley National Parks definitely added a bit of serenity. From trails to rivers to ski resorts, it’s an outdoors lovers paradise.
Living where I do has provided me with years upon years of camping and all around outdoor living experience. I personally take my family camping multiple times a year. Truly whenever possible. I have 3 young boys that also love the outdoors (Which is a relief to me not seeing them sit inside on their phones all day).
In my years of camping I’ve always been fascinated with making camping as primitive as I can while still keeping the comfort ability and ease of being in your own back yard no matter where I happen to be.
People don’t enjoy the outdoors like they used to.
Whether it be time or money problems people just aren’t enjoying the outdoors like they used to. Instead, we sit inside or go to big chain resorts because we think it’s much easier to do nothing at all then to go enjoy being outside because it always seems like it will be too much work. But that’s just not the case. Especially today where everything is made for convenience and comfort ability.
I want family’s to be able to spend time together in a world we are losing more and more every day. Camping brings closer connections, traditions, and all around escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.
Our goal here at The Tent Kings, is to provide knowledge and accessibility to everyone. We want you to be able to enjoy being outdoors again. To get out and fall in love with the planet we call home. I want to share my years of knowledge with you so the next time you take a trip outdoors you have everything you need to have a safe beautiful adventure.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below or email me at email@example.com and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
Founder of The Tent Kings
