My name is Nushin, and I’m a freelance reporter. During my career, I’ve covered a number of beats, but mostly focused on energy and environmental reporting. I love the outdoors and believe that everyone can benefit from being outside. You don’t need a lot of experience or fancy gear to have a great camping trip.

The purpose of this blog is to help families plan for trips to the great outdoors. While the National Parks are meant for everyone to enjoy, planning a trip can be intimidating for those of us that didn’t grow up camping and hiking. I hope the information in this blog is helpful to folks.
