    Ep 61 - Finding the Best Campsites

    Be them paperback maps scribbled with the curves and contours of rural Australia, or online platforms for those following the footprints of fellow adventurers across beaches, base camps, and bucket-list locations – there are many resources that lead the way to the best campsites in our outback-yard.
    In this episode of the Snowys Camping Show, Ben and Lauren detail the various modes by which to identify, plan for, and book into the campsites that best suit your off-grid getaway – from the bayside campsites along sandy coastlines, to Station Stays beneath the pink skies of the bushland.

    Ep 60 - Caravanning the Oodnadatta Track

    Far from the concrete complexes of the metropolitan maze, Kev from the Snowys warehouse recently hit the rough and tumble of Australia’s outback on his off-road adventure along the Oodnadatta Track.
    In this week’s episode of the Snowys Camping Show, outdoor experts Ben and Lauren sit down with our accomplished caravanner to discuss his venture along the sunburnt, red-dirt roads between Adelaide and Alice Springs, bypassing the barren bitumen of the highways.
    Be it suspension hacks, unkempt tracks, or the cons of mud flaps – Kev tells all and leaves nothing in the dust.

    Ep 58 - How To Camp Cosy

    Ep 57 - Weird and Wonderful Camping Gear

    Ep 57 - Weird and Wonderful Camping Gear

    From the products that provide behind-the-bar value beer at basecamp, to Crocs tinkering with gadgets and bracelets fitted with fix-it kits for outdoor dynamics – some camping gear is too weird for words.
    …Until Ben and Lauren find twenty-three products, thirty-three minutes, and two microphones.
    In this episode of the Snowys Camping Show, our outdoor experts unpack the camping gear on the cusp of clever and the tackle that barely tickles normal.
    It’s time to get a little weird and discover a whole lot of wonderful.

    Ep 56 - Will That Stretcher Fit?

    Ep 56 - Will That Stretcher Fit?

    There’s no questioning that triangles are the superior shape. At school, we asked mum to cut our sandwiches into triangular pieces because it improved the flavour tenfold (duh). That goes for pizza too – slicing into square slabs only leaves behind those annoying almost-slices, wasted on the edges. No one likes an almost-slice.

    In fact, triangles are so celebrated that we even have a theory to determine the length of the hypotenuse of an irregular triangle. Thought you’d never need this information in your day-to-day life? Well, if you’re an avid camper who values a superior sleep set-up, room to groove, and overall comfort within your canvas cave – think again.

    In this episode of the Snowys Camping Show, our outdoor experts apply Ben’s approach – established with a little help from Pythagoras – to determine how a standard sized stretcher can fit within the multiple tent shapes, styles, and designs. In doing so they consider height, length, and slope, revealing how much interior space can be lost – and how to gain some of it back.
