Camping on a budget

It’s summer, the weather is being kind to us and we’re having urges to get the tent out and get away. Camping can be really expensive before you even go due to the essential pieces of equipment that you’ll need to buy if you don’t have them already. If you go camping often, invest in decent gear and look after it then it’s not so bad as after the initial expense it can be very cheap to book a campsite for a week and pitch up.
