Fun at Your Base Camp

There’s a lot to say about the basics you need at your base camp: tents, stoves, tables, chairs – we’re going to talk about all those things another time. Right now, we’re just thinking about one thing: play.

Naturally, camping, hiking, canoeing, climbing, and whatever else you’re doing out in Nature is fun. Still, there are times at the end of a long day when you don’t need challenging fun. You need low key, nearly brainless fun that can be enjoyed while kicking back and relaxing in a hammock.

Here’s what we at Uncle Sam’s recommend:

  • Cards are especially good for camping because they’re small, lightweight, and can be used for a huge number of different games. If you get tired of rummy and poker, you can play Bezique, Skat, or Gleek.
  • Sturdy, water-safe cases like the EcoTerra Boombox from Grace Digital let you carry your tunes with you.
  • Funky Flames makes your campfire into a pretty light show – even more than a normal fire. On those days when you’ve gotten yourself into such a state of satisfying exhaustion that you want to sit still and stare into the fire, this stuff gives you something special to look at.
  • Hacky Sacks and Frisbee can’t really be played well from a hammock, but after you’ve rested up, they’re great for rounding off the day. We have glowing Fisbees so you can play in the dark.

All these toys are easy to carry with you, and you’ll be glad you have them.
