Well friends, the summer is fast approaching (stop, breathe, breathe again) and that means it's time for the CampHacker Podcast to break for the season. 

We know, we're sad too.

That being said, you know that we'd never leave you in a lurch. Especially not at this time of year. As our parting gift to you to keep you cool until we meet again in the fall, we have the whole team together to fill the last few pages of your spring journal with our top tips for this time of year. We hope that this episode gives you what you need right now whether it's a reassuring helping hand, or a fire under your rear. Either way, Dan, Joe, Gab and Travis brought their A-game for this one.
