7 camping tips that will save your back this summer
Posted on July 9th, 2019

Summer weather is here! This means there are more opportunities to go outdoors and have fun. One activity that many of us look forward to in the summer months is camping. The fresh air, a well-lit campfire and a dip in the lake are difficult to resist. But preparing for camping is just as important as enjoying it. Be ready for the unexpected. Camp grounds and parks allow us to enjoy a large variety of recreational activities, which is what makes it a summer favorite. Preparing and organizing packing ahead of time can help you manage the unexpected and tackle challenges as they arise. We want to help out all our campers this summer with some useful tips to follow…

Kombucha is a beverage that is made with sugar and tea and is fermented with a SCOBY. SCOBY stands…
