7 Items to Level Up Your Camping Menu (Plus a Giveaway!)
The following is a sponsored post brought to you by Stanley.
Food can be as much of a draw to the outdoors as solitude, fresh air, and majestic mountain views. The quality of your camping menu can make or break a backcountry getaway. After all, who doesn’t love a steaming cup of coffee on a cold morning, a lovingly prepared meal after a long day of adventure, or a campfire cocktail with friends? But if you want to craft the ultimate backcountry menu, you need a plan—and the right equipment for the job. To aid your quest for camp cuisine perfection, Stanley is offering Trek readers an exclusive giveaway this week. Intrigued? Read on for details.
7 Items to Level Up Your Car Camping Menu
Start the morning off right with a fresh cup of coffee brewed in your very own camping French press. No need to bring a separate pot to heat the water, either: this bad boy can be used to boil the water too.
Everyone needs a decent vacuum-insulated water bottle. This one will keep your drink hot or cold for 20 hours and will hold ice for nearly four days, so you can always have your beverage at the right temperature no matter how far you are from the nearest microwave (or fridge).
Take the whole “great outdoors” thing into the stratosphere with this six-piece nesting stainless steel shot glass and flask set. All you need is a few friends and a campfire for ambiance to have the makings of a legendary camping trip. Just remember to drink responsibly and be considerate of fellow campers. No one likes an obnoxious neighbor.
Backcountry beer is awesome. WARM backcountry beer? Not so much (unless you live in England). The fanciest camping menu in the world won’t do you much good if you don’t have a way to keep food and drinks fresh. This cooler is big enough to accommodate all your goodies and should keep ice for four days.
What’s better than beer after a day of adventure in the mountains? These space-efficient stackable pints are insulated to keep your brew cold for hours. Cute doggo not included with purchase.
Load this food jar up with three quarts of the delicious grub of your choice, and it will stay hot for 12 hours. Meanwhile, cold food will stay chilled for 16 hours.
This is pretty much the high-end designer kitchen of the camping world. Your friends will be so jealous. The 21-piece set includes everything you could need to prepare, serve, and clean up after a gourmet camp dinner—and it all nests together in one compact, adorable package.
Now, about that free stuff we mentioned! Stanley is giving away an Adventure Full Kitchen Base Camp Cook Set, an Adventure Stay Hot Camp Crock, and an Adventure Beer Pint (if you’re counting, that’s a $163 value) to three extremely fortunate Trek readers.
