Desert Delights

Living Beyond The Mirage

Some people just seem to have it all together when they camp. Beyond the basics, they bring gifts to share.

Here are some gifts we’d like to share so you can share them with others. Some we came up with ourselves, while some we just saw and think are cool.

Why not solve a problem with plywood now, and send us your design? We like gifts.
