The Airbedz XUV Mattress - a comfy pup

By Sara Baird

Pittman Outdoors designs mattresses for a wide range of circumstances. James Pittman, the owner was inspired to design the AirBedz mattress by uncomfortable nights spent on a regular air mattress in the back of his truck.

My choices included mattresses that would fit in the back seat of our pickup, in the box of the pickup, or read more

The Beanie Sleeper – Because Everyone Wants a Warm and Dark Night’s Sleep

My Beannie Sleeper

By Sara Baird

One of the things I love about camping is a dark and quiet beautiful night’s sleep. A few years ago I was so excited for a Memorial Day tenting trip, I had big plans for a deep night’s sleep. Unfortunately, for sleep, there was the most amazing full moon that weekend and it never got dark. I remember lying awake all night wishing I had a sleep mask along. When asked to try out the Beanie Sleeper I immediately thought of this night. I normally sleep in a hat both when camper and read more

I’m a mom teetering at the edge of an empty nest.

Skin Care with Colorado Aromatics

Colorado Aromatics products

By Sara Baird

Excellent Sensory Experience with No Fuss

When I was asked to review products from Colorado Aromatics, including a knuckle balm, I hesitated. I can’t say that I diligently use beauty products but I only had to give my hands a quick glance to say sure. As a teacher in the midst of flu season with news of Covid-19 just emerging, my over-washed and sanitized hands were a mess and I was hoping for some relief.

How To Be Cozy On the Go – The Mozy

How To Be Cozy On the Go - The Mozy

By Sara Baird

There are many reasons I love living in Minnesota, one is that I could probably list wrapping up in a blanket as a favorite hobby and Minnesota’s climate means that many days are blanket days. I was intrigued when asked to review the Mozy, which is a wearable blanket designed to be worn outdoors and allow mobility. Is it a blanket that I could actually wear camping or would it prove to be the same hassle as trying to bring a blanket outdoors?

The Mozy arrived in a beautiful package read more

A Review of The Windtamer – Enhance Your Outdoor Cooking Experience

By Sara Baird

My son has said since he was little that “everything tastes better when you are camping”. I agree, there is just something about eating your meal outdoors in all kinds of weather that improves the flavor of everything.

As the head chef of our camping expeditions, I’ve faced my fair share of challenges in preparing our meals. I’m an enthusiastic cook and I’ve never shied away from cooking for my family no matter where my current kitchen is located. Even at home, I’ve logged read more

No Box Tools Bell Tent Review

No Box Tools Bell Tent Review

By Sara Baird

My family spent every possible day Minnesota weather allowed at our rustic one-room lake cabin. Because the cabin was so small tents became our bedrooms. This tradition continued as my sisters and I became parents, just expanding the number of tent bedrooms needed. In addition to our time at the lake, we thoroughly enjoyed campouts in state and national parks and wilderness trips. While we just upgraded to a 5th wheel for most of our camping needs I still love to spend the night in read more
