Tahoe Gear Glacier 14 Person 3-Season Family Cabin Camping TentWhen you go on a camp­ing trip with your fam­ily, hav­ing the nec­es­sary gear and equip­ment with you is crit­i­cal. Beyond enough water and food sup­plies, sleep­ing bags and a first-aid kit, the tent is one of the most impor­tant items in your back­pack, and choos­ing the right one for you and your beloved ones can be daunt­ing. Tahoe Gear Glac­ier 14 Per­son 3-Season Fam­ily Cabin Camp­ing Tent w/ Rain Fly has been specif­i­cally imple­mented to accom­mo­date up to 14 peo­ple, which makes it ver­sa­tile and effi­cient if you plan to bring the whole fam­ily with you. Made from qual­ity mate­ri­als that include durable poly­ester, this tent comes with large zipped win­dows that con­tribute to proper ven­ti­la­tion, as well as a fly canopy that extends out over the door for extra cov­er­age. If you are con­sid­er­ing buy­ing a new family-size tent for your camp­ing needs, check our com­pre­hen­sive Tahoe Gear Glac­ier review.

Fea­tures and Specifications

• Tent body made from durable 1200mm poly­ester
• Accom­mo­dates up to 14 peo­ple
• Taped fly seams
• Poly­eth­yl­ene bind­ing floor
• Fly canopy extends out for extra cov­er­age
• Guy ropes for secur­ing the tent dur­ing windy weather con­di­tions
• Solar shield to pre­vent direct sun expo­sure and keep the tent cool
• Open mesh design for excel­lent ven­ti­la­tion
• Includes stakes, pole bag, carry bag and assem­bly instruc­tions
• 7′ cen­ter
• Zip­ping large win­dows
• Dimen­sions: 20′ x 12” x 84”
• Price: $249.00


We can­not pos­si­bly talk about the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier fam­ily tent with­out list­ing its many ben­e­fits. In the first place, this tent is extremely large, pro­vid­ing a huge amount of space that can eas­ily accom­mo­date up to 14 peo­ple. If you plan to bring your whole fam­ily with you, then this option is ver­sa­tile, allow­ing you to get as much room as you want or need for feel­ing com­fort­able dur­ing your camp­ing trip. The tent is divided into two main “rooms,” which can be sep­a­rated through a zipped poly­ester wall, so every­one can enjoy a few moments of quiet­ness and inti­macy.
For those campers who want to go out­side dur­ing the sum­mer, the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier is built with a con­ve­nient open mesh design that will enhance ven­ti­la­tion, as well as a solar shield that will pre­vent direct sun expo­sure and will keep the tent cool. With sev­eral mesh win­dows that can be zipped and unzipped as needed, the tent cre­ates opti­mal con­di­tions for happy camp­ing, help­ing all campers avoid poten­tial issues. There­fore, all win­dows can be unzipped dur­ing the day, when tem­per­a­tures are hot, and zipped dur­ing the night, when the weather is cooler and mos­qui­toes are eagerly wait­ing to bother you.
Fur­ther­more, the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier is ideal dur­ing windy, rainy or stormy weather con­di­tions, because it comes along with guy ropes that will help you secure it into place. Improper secu­rity is the pri­mary dis­ad­van­tage of most tents, and this is what makes the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier stand out among other items of its kind. With a con­ve­nient wall height and a large 7’ cen­ter, the tent will allow you to eas­ily move inside the tent with­out hav­ing to arch your back and poten­tially expe­ri­ence dis­com­fort of even back pain.
Avail­able in two col­ors (green and red), the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier sells for $249.00 at Ama­zon, but can be found on sev­eral other online stores, as well. Due to the many fea­tures it comes with, this tent can be the per­fect choice for your camp­ing needs, offer­ing every­thing it takes to make your camp­ing expe­ri­ence memorable.



In terms of draw­backs, there is not much to say about the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier. The tent fab­ric itself is very thin indeed, which might poten­tially lead to rip­ping or tear­ing it apart acci­den­tally. More­over, the tent floor is made from the same mate­r­ial as a tarp, which makes it rather poor and inap­pro­pri­ate when adults, chil­dren and dogs are around. You might also find it very noisy to walk on, which might suc­cess­fully wake you up in the night when some­one attempts to use the toilet.

Final Thoughts

Even if it has a cou­ple of draw­backs, the Tahoe Gear Glac­ier still remains a solid and reli­able tent to choose when you go on camp­ing. Pro­vided that it comes with so many ben­e­fi­cial fea­tures and a con­ve­nient price value, the tent will offer you pro­tec­tion and com­fort, enhanc­ing your expe­ri­ence and allow­ing you to spend mem­o­rable moments with your beloved ones. Be sure to order it from a depend­able online seller, to avoid mak­ing point­less invest­ments and get the high­est quality.



What To Bring Camping


What To Bring Camping


If it has been a while since your last camp­ing trip or if you have never been camp­ing before then a com­mon ques­tion is What to Bring Camp­ing?  There are some things that are a neces­sity, a few that make camp­ing a lit­tle eas­ier, and some items are just for the spoiled among us.






The Camp­ing Essen­tials or the Camp­ing  Necessities:

  • A tent, or some type of shel­ter. You will need pro­tec­tion from the ele­ments. Insects and other pests can make it dif­fi­cult to sleep. The weather can also ruin a camp­ing trip if you are not well shel­tered. and don’t for­get the tarp.
  • Food: Make sure you pack enough food and water to last for the entire trip. Peo­ple need a cou­ple thou­sand calo­ries a day, so pack enough.
  • Sleep­ing Bag and Camp­ing Pil­low: these items will make sure you rest well.
  • Water­proof Matches or a Good Lighter: or both to make sure you can start a fire when needed.
  • A Com­pass: Just in case you decide to go wan­der­ing in the wilderness.
  • Toi­let Paper: You will def­i­nitely need it at some point.
  • Flash­light and/or Lantern: How else will you get around in the dark when nature calls?
  • Insect Repellant/ Off: There will be insects. But will you be ready for them?
  • Proper Cloth­ing: This can vary depend­ing on your planned activ­i­ties and the sea­son. Make sure you have warm clothes in cool weather and cool clothes in warm weather. Also remem­ber to bring your swim­ming gear if swim­ming is in the plans.
  • Sun­screen: to pro­tect your skin from the sun’s harm­ful rays.
  • A watch: your cell phone may die and you may need to know the time of day.
  • A Tooth­brush and tooth­paste: That feel­ing of going unbrushed should be moti­va­tion enough.

Nice Items to Have Handy while Camping:

  • Extra bat­ter­ies: For the flash­light, or the Hand­held video games if your like some of my friends.
  • Sun­glasses: it’s nice to be able to beat the glare
  • Hatchet: For cut­ting some fire wood.
  • Chairs: Because sit­ting on the ground can get old. there are many good fold­ing chairs out there.
  • Soap: If you plan on stay­ing clean while camping
  • Comb or brush: you will want to keep your hair look­ing good.
  • Aspirin: Just in case
  • Cook­ing and Eat­ing Gear: You will need to serve the food some­how. there are a lot of good and easy to travel with stoves and dishes that are made just for camping.


These were just a few things off the top of my head for those that have trou­ble remem­ber­ing what to bring camping.

This video also has some good advice as to what to bring camp­ing.

Camp Chef Explorer Series EX-60LW 2-Burner Mod­u­lar Cook­ing Sys­tem Review

Camp Chef Explorer Series EX-60LW

Camp Chef Explorer Series EX-60LW

Cook­ing while camp­ing can some­times be a dif­fi­cult task. Cook­ing on the open flame of a camp­fire has sev­eral issues, the biggest of which is tem­per­a­ture reg­u­la­tion. Most BBQ grills are too large to take camp­ing. Although, there are a few good ones out there. Lately my favorite method of cook­ing while camp­ing has been the Camp Chef Explorer Series EX-60LW 2-Burner Mod­u­lar Cook­ing Sys­tem . It is fueled by propane, which makes achiev­ing the desired tem­per­a­tures easy.



I would like to cover some of the appeal­ing  fea­tures of the Camp Chef Explorer Series EX-60LW 2-Burner Mod­u­lar Cook­ing Sys­tem. First the legs that sup­port the stove can be indi­vid­u­ally adjusted, mak­ing it easy to get a level cook­ing sur­face. This is not a com­mon fea­ture with grills intended for back yard or patio use. The three sided wind screen helps block the wind and keep the burn­ers lit. The burn­ers are 30,000 btu burn­ers which means you can cook just about any­thing you like. The  Camp Chef Explorer Series EX-60LW is very easy to travel with,  mak­ing it not only good for camp­ing, but also for tail­gat­ing, can­ning, or just gen­eral use like any other grill. But my favorite fea­ture of all is that it is mod­u­lar, mean­ing there are a ton of acces­sories avail­able for it. Grab a Camp Chef Explorer Series EX-60LW from Ama­zon now!
