If the great outdoors is calling your name, this service is making it even easier (and cheaper) for you and your forest-loving pals to head into the woods. Ashwinn’s Upstate Roaming Co. understands the troubling questions New Yorkers face whenever they get an inkling to go camping. “How do I get upstate?” “A tent costs how much?”
Unless you’re a mountain man or woman by nature, this service is perfect for folks who have no idea what tools or supplies they need to survive a night in the wilderness. Here’s the gist: You and your crew pick a date and time to go camping, and Ashwinn delivers a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited packed with tents, sleeping gear and camping necessities for cooking (there’s even a first aid kit!) to your door.
All you need to bring are clothes (if you want), booze, food and personal toiletries. We know what you’re thinking—this sounds expensive. Well, it’s actually pretty reasonable: You pay either $275 or $375 a night. Split the cost between five friends, and you’re looking at the same amount you’d spend on dinner and drinks in the city.
