10 Unusual Camping Items that You Will Either Love or Hate…
By angelamontana


When you think of camping, chances are you do NOT think of any of the following items…and if you do, then I would high five you for being unique:

1. Flameless, Portable Marshmallow Roaster….I guess it is for those places with fire restrictions–which is definitely a reality in Montana, but um….doesn’t technology usually defeat the purpose of camping?

2. Fashionable Canoe Dress…yes, you read that correction–a canoe DRESS.  This dress actually turns into an inflatable canoe…. …… …………

3. Multi-Vented Sleeping Bag…you know when you’re hot, but you’re cold, too?  I think the idea behind this sleeping bag was to allow ventilation for the parts that were hot while keeping the cold areas warm…or something…

4. Camping Stove and Oven….well, this can be handy (for some I suppose), that’s for sure, but do you want to pack this on a four-mile hike into the mountains?  I don’t.  But, it might be great for car camping…if you’re against cooking over campfires…and you want to bake something…

5. Hiking Stilettos…you can re-read that all you want, but take a look at the picture–these are real.  For the woman who just can’t fathom wearing flats…check out these hiking high heels made by Teva!  Who am I kidding?  These may be ridiculous to us in Montana, but they are a real thing that people buy…um…….

6. Picnic Table Cloth Dress…another double take for ya…this dress doubles as a picnic blanket.  Don’t bother bringing a cloth with you!  Just sit and chow down…. ……………………………..

7. Portable Ice Cream Maker…Yes! Finally!  A portable ice cream maker made just for camping! …..said no one EVER.

8. Electric Marshmallow Turner…seriously.  If you aren’t physically able to turn your own marshmallow over with a stick, the solution more than likely won’t include adding something electric to the experience…but, that’s just my thought.

9. Flamingo Tent Stakes…Ah yes…it just isn’t camping without your flamingo tent stakes.  Wait, I meant it isn’t camping if you have them.  Unless you’re trying to give your camping buddies a good laugh, maybe you should reconsider your camping gear?

10.  Cadaver Sleeping Bag…I like off the wall things, but I can’t figure out if the footed part are slippers you can really put your feet in….

And there you have it, folks.  If you want to really get into some unusual or uncommon camping gear, maybe you should check these things out…I just can’t get over the high heel hiking shoes.
