We’ll test it for you: camping at Lake Tahoe with Outfittr outdoor gear

You know how much we like to share with you local travel itineraries and rental outdoor gear tips… Well, this time, we plan to go on a camping expedition at Lake Tahoe next week (maybe my last expedition before the baby is here…) and we plan to rent our outdoor gear via a brand new company’s service: Outfittr!

The whole adventure sounds already good: the Lake Tahoe, its blue water, its trails, its amazing landscape (I assumed because I’ve never been there before), and its natural campground sites… What else?… Good gear, especially when you are 8 months pregnant!

Well, this escapade could end in a bad story if we don’t have the right outdoor gear. In fact, even during the summer, nights in Lake Tahoe can be very cold (forecasted around 40° for next week). So, being prepared, we’ll go camping with warm sleeping bags, pads, lamps and a waterproof tent.

This time, we’ll try the Outfittr company service. We’ll let you know if it is a good solution for your outdoor trips, but so far, it looks pretty convenient.  You go online and choose your gear.  These are delivered by UPS with free shipping AND return shipping (the company provides you with a prepaid UPS shipping label). You even don’t need to go to a shop, which I adore…

Rendez-vous in 2 weeks to know more about our coming trip!
