Camping was once simply a way life in America. The campsite was either a dwelling or just a place to bed down for the night. Early explorers, hunters, travelers and "cowboys of the old west" set up camp every night and certainly didn't think of it as the recreational pastime we enjoy today.

Part one of this program features a family that rents camping equipment from Geared To Go. Part two is a shopping trip both on the cheap at an army surplus store and then at a top notch outdoors gear retailer. Coastal naturalist Cathy Sakas takes us coastal camping in part three.
