Guest Post Topics

Almost any topic that has to do with travel in the American Southwest or camping in general will be accepted. Send us your pitch for a guest post and we'll let you know if it fits.  

Here are some examples of topics we like:

  • Weekend getaways/multi-day road trip itineraries/outdoor activities in or near major cities of the West

  • Camping how-to guides for beginners or camping hacks that even seasoned campers may not know about

  • Camping etiquette unique to the American Southwest (dispersed camping, going to the bathroom, etc.) 

  • So much more...! Get creative and let us know what you want to write about
