Now we take the time to make at least one camping trip with Cara and our friends each year.
This is why I wasn't surprised at all when I learned about her plans to write a book on glamping. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the book was finally under way. Martinis and Marshmallows: A Field Guide to Luxury Tent Camping is now available through Amazon and I just received my copy last week.
Now, you might be wondering why I am writing about this book on my tiny house blog. It isn't just because it was written by a good friend. There are two primary reasons:
- I believe some luxury tent camping techniques and gear can be translated to tiny house living.
- It can make an excellent and inexpensive hobby/vacation for tiny house dwellers.

Check out the glamping scouts idea - trust me, this was fun to do in real life. I was there!
I absolutely adore some of the products in the 3rd chapter, especially the wrought iron shave and washstand. And the DIY icebox could be a great addition for tiny homes that currently function without refrigeration.
There are also a lot of amazing camping recipes in the book which can easily be adapted to a tiny house kitchen or outdoor cooking space.
Cara's book provides great insight into the art of tent camping and makes it accessible for everyone. If you're interested in learning more I recommend buying the book today and following Cara's blog! You can also follow the Facebook page and join in the conversation.
