Can I take my family camping using only the cheapest camping gear from Walmart? Will it be a disaster or a bargain? So I set out to buy ONLY the cheapest sleeping bags, tent, knives, food, ect. from Walmart and take my family of five on an overnight camping and fossil hunting adventure.
**Update: Thanks to some smart comments, I wouldn’t recommend keeping a used bandana in my food pot. Something I’ll change moving forward. Gear I took on my thru-hike attempt of the Appalachian trail, what I thought, and recommended changes. With some video from my time on trial.
