Camping at Joshua Tree National Park

Summer's halfway over, but that doesn't mean you can't still plan an awesome adventure out in the wild full of campfire songs, beers, and tall tales. The following are some of my favorite spots to go camping this year, where are your favorite places?

This country is an amazing place full of natural wonders and I love exploring them. In addition to this opportunity to see things that have never been seen before, camping represents an opportunity to reconnect with nature and "be men" without worrying about what "the girls" will think if we fart, belch, or tell dirty jokes. It's also a chance to reconnect with the positive manly aspects of our lives that we might have forgotten about such as climbing to the top of a rock just to enjoy a sunset or sharing man skills with others ranging from identifying constellations to how to start a fire.
