At Gadgets 4 Guys, we determine what is manly and what isn’t. There are a few things we have established as not manly like; Justin Bieber, man purses, flash mobs, cooking (we’re only allowed to grill), reading gossip magazines, crying, talking about feelings, mojitos, dancing, and hugging. What are some of the things that are manly? Beards and facial hair, dead arms, fantasy football, sandals with black socks, whiskey, and any kind of dark beer. There is one rite of passage for every boy to go through before considered a full fledged man though which is camping. It doesn’t matter how you do it but spending time out in the wilderness with men, their gasses, and zero showers is required to be a man in our book.
One thing that we realize is that camping can require you to be in some questionable areas. If you are anywhere that a snake could slither into your sleeping bag, you need to start looking at ways to prevent bites in sensitive areas. Lawson has created the Blue Ridge Camping Hammock which can take care of those kind of issues. The cool part of this camping gadget is it doubles as a hammock and also something to sleep on the ground too. It is covered which means it can keep the nasty things around you out which is vital for camping. The really cool part about the Blue Ridge Hammock is that it allows you to strap it between two trees and sway in the breeze as you fall asleep. When the Blue Ridge Hammock is on the ground, it almost becomes a full fledged tent. We all worry about snakes and bears but one of the biggest worries should actually be bugs. One wrong mosquito bite or the wrong tick latches onto you and a trip to the emergency room could be required. Image source.
