A city kid since birth, I've learned to be more and more outdoorsy thanks to an annual weeklong camping trip that became a part of my life a few years ago. But after these yearly excursions are over, I'm left wondering: what the hell am I supposed to do for the next 51 weeks?
Improvise, that's what.

Now, if an absurd adult take on fort-building doesn't sound up your alley, please feel free to move along. But if you like the thought of simulating the wonders of the great outdoors while still getting to laze about in the comfort of your heated home, here's everything you'll need to have the most transportive experience possible.
