Camping: Good for the Solstice

Camping gear rental Portland

The first day of summer arrives with the solstice on Friday, June 21st at 11:54 a.m. EDT. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, this marks the longest day of the year and the moment when the sun reaches its highest point. Just thought we’d drop a little solar knowledge on ya! 

To celebrate the Solstice, the people of Ålesund, Norway, set a world record in 2016 for the tallest bonfire with their 155.5-foot celebratory inferno. While we don’t recommend you build a massive rager, we do encourage you to get outdoors this weekend and take advantage of the longest days of the year.

Pods are still available for this weekend, and if you book between now and Friday we'll give you 15% off with code:
