Hi there, this is Jo Simon here from Melbourne, Australia, and welcome!

Most parents want to take their kids camping! 

The problem is, camp just once or twice a year and it can take years before they get their camping setup "right".

Over 4 years in fact for me.

That's even if they ever get get started.

What to buy, the cost, the effort, the kids, will they cope, the weather...

If that sounds like you, you don't need to forfeit your camping dreams and confine your kids to the 4 walls of expensive hotel and resort-based holidays (or staying at home).

Or, spend $10's of thousands on some kind of RV an its associated coses.

Check out Settocamp.com and my TentsTalk Email Community for loads of free tips to help you to fully embrace tent camping and all it has to offer and avoid the costly alternatives.

AND, for families or groups of up to 5, we'll show you how you can avoid the need for a trailer to haul it all.
