If you are new to the world of camping, you might be confused by all of the different types of equipment which are on offer at your local camping store. When I first started camping, I would spend hours walking around the store, trying to work out which type of sleeping bag would be best and if I needed a two-man or three-man tent. Thankfully, on an early camping trip, I made friends with the guy in the next tent. His name is Mark and he is a real expert. He soon taught me everything that I needed to know about camping equipment.
