In honor of Hayley’s annual summer camping trip with friends next weekend, we’ve gathered some Maine products that will enhance your next camping excursion–most of which will last you a lifetime (but definitely not the doughnuts!). From a high-tech tent to gorgeously crafted wooden stand-up paddle boards, Maine craftsmen and manufacturers offer some of the best products on the market.
For camping at the lake, a world famous Old Town canoe is a must, and with a paddle by Shaw & Teeney you’ll be unstoppable. If it’s a drive-up campsite, bring along your SUP board for some calm water practice, throw a couple of Brahms Mount linen towels in your waxed-canvas L.L. Bean pack, and you’ll be ready to jump right in–literally or figuratively.
Growing up, both Hayley and I attended a summer camp where the out-of-camp overnight trips always included handmade nutmeg doughnuts cooked over the camper stove. So for us, doughnuts are an essential part of camping. The doughnuts you see here are a potato-based dough that is all the local craze. Even though I’m not going camping next weekend, I may just pick up some doughnuts to enjoy from the Holy Doughnut anyway.
Have a great weekend! Blair
