We enjoyed an amazing Indian summer this week, with temps in the 70s and even low 80s yesterday. For Michigan at the end of October, that’s a very rare treat. It felt weird to be raking and sweating!
Had it been a weekend, we might have tried to get out camping. We’ve always wanted to do an autumn camping trip to enjoy the fall colors, have hot chocolate and spiced apple cider, soups, and cozy afternoons around the fire.
Even though it was 81 just before dinner yesterday, it’s 39 degrees this morning. I think that pretty much marks the very end of the camping season in my locale, so I figured I’d have an end-of-season clearance sale on The Family Camping Handbook – ONLY $3!
The Handbook has three major purposes:
- To encourage and teach you how to successfully go camping with very young children
- To share the basics of camping/packing/etc. for backwoods camping, off the grid
- To make real food possible while camping, tailgating, or out in the woods
You do not have to rely on hot dogs and white buns for a camping trip! “Kitchen Stewardship in the Big Woods” has a total of 36 camping recipes and techniques to make sure you don’t need food processing companies to make your meals for you.

A Camping Success (?) Story
Every so often I get fun emails for ebook owners telling me of their camping experiences. Here’s a small part of one I received this summer:
I wanted to tell you that my family is going camping this coming weekend, for the first time ever as a family. … I was pretty apprehensive at the idea until I purchased your ebook- the family camping handbook, which I thought would be helpful for learning about camping AND real food.
And it has been…REALLY!! I am actually getting excited to go.
THANK YOU!! Obviously we haven’t gone yet to actually put it into use, but your ebook is inspiring me and easing some of my anxiety over the details, which is so helpful.
After the trip, which was a disaster due to rude neighbors and a sick child, she updated me:
Despite the bad experience, I honestly believe that the part that was good was due, largely in part, to the investment I made in purchasing your ebook.
I was prepared for most stuff- we had packed many things that we needed that my friend, who has more experience with this did not pack but needed, and we ate very healthily while we were there.
Also, my friend’s kids loved all the food we brought along and shared, which is unheard of- particularly the granola bars.
Made my day!
If you’d like to buy The Family Camping Handbook for only $3, down from the regular price of $6.95, use the code “3FORTREES” now through Halloween at midnight.
Tuck it away for winter reading and planning for next summer if you live in a four-season climate like me, or get out there for some autumn camping if you’re down south!
