As things start to warm up for those of us further north, it’s about time to start thinking about that next big backwoods trek. Your ride will be tuned up and ready, but how about your actual camping & outdoor gear? This past week we noticed that REI has some sweet deals that will help you enjoy your time outdoors more, and save you money in the process. If you think about it, enjoying Mother Nature is free, so why should being properly equipped to enjoy it cost you an arm and a leg?
