I love camping
I graduated this year and got my first job, but to find it's not as great as I expected. Everything seems boring for quite a long time, but now I have found new fun in my outdoor life. It's fantastic! Hope more people will fall in love this sports:)

However, I just got a second-hand backpack and even don't have a tent yet.

I wonder where you guys buy your outdoor equipment, could you recommend some good stores?
I got this from my friend, but not sure if really that good.
Hope we can exchange more useful info here, that's why I join in today.

Take a look at Campmor. I'm sure they have a website now, but we have bought many a piece of camping equipment from the catalog. They have good prices
If you want top of the line, the REI, LLBean, Cabela's are all good.

Don't know if you are close to a Bass Pro Shop but you mght look there too.
Am pretty sure they have a web site...online catalog etc.

They are a few stores based on outdoor equipment only.

If you live in ontario, there is a Bass Pro Shop - i think it's called, at this big mall... haha i forgot the mall name.

You might want to look into Gander Mountain or Cabella's, too. We have a Gander Mountain store in our area. It's packed with just about everything anyone could need for camping, hunting, fishing, etc. It's like a toy store for folks who enjoy the outdoors.

Welcome to DC. I am sure you can find a website for camping equipment.

Good luck and have a wonderful day.

try to find a REI store, they are a co-op so you get store credit at the end of the year, depending on the prifits. There private label equipment is very good, they also carry all of the major lines.

What is you camping style? Day camping w/hiking, primative overnight w/tent setup, RV weekender, comfer buffer w/holiday inn.
New boring job: been there-did that.
Look for some campers in your area. Many of them have sites on the internet and post info about their camping trips.
Day camping is a really good place to start this time of year.
With camping, the possibilities are endless, places to go, things to see, stuff to do.

Well if you are inventive enough you really can get away without all of the fan fair. It truly depends on your comfort level. Go to the good will and you would be amazed at what you can find. Anything in a pinch :)

While I agree with galleywench somewhat, if you are using a tent you really want one that "works". And now, stores like WalMart and Target have a very good camping department.
