The Ultimate Lunar Camping Trip – Livestream

We are taking a special camping trip to Earth’s moon!

Join us on Facebook Live as we imagine extreme camping excursions at Camp Luna. What goes through the mind when leaving the comforts of home and dramatically changing our environment, traveling a great distance? Together, we can examine how to plan and accomplish the perfect out-of-doors journey, and we can ponder the personal solitude and experience we’re in for, on The Ultimate Lunar Camping Trip.
