Rayovac wants to dedicate this blog post to all of the brave men and women who have served in the US military both past and present. Yet again the time has come to celebrate Memorial Day, a magnificent holiday marked by a 3-day weekend where US citizens come together and cherish the freedom provided by veterans.
Memorial Day weekend is a special time of year when you can rid yourself of all distractions and spend quality time with the ones you love. Seize the moment by making a family trip to the nearest campsite. A weekend away from responsibility may be just what you need to regain a little sanity. Remember the golden rule of camping? Be prepared. Pack the flashlights and power needed to light up your surroundings.
For some, camping is like therapy for the soul. The sanctuary known as the Great Outdoors is the perfect environment to toss aside your worries and bond with your family and Mother Nature. Unfortunately, 21st century gadgets can hold your family hostage by distracting their minds with relative ease. Items like cell phones, laptops and iPods are a nuisance to scheduled family time across the nation.
Distractions can come in many forms: Parents who fight the urge to check their work emails, the lustful teen swept away by a summer romance and the stir-crazy adolescent who without a television nearby can suffer from cartoon withdrawals. Curing the spell cast by the latest technologies and other distractions is no easy task, but luckily a weekend remedy exists to reclaim your quality family time.
Rayovac lends a helping hand by providing the necessary camping essentials to appease even the techiest of families. Lanterns, flashlights and glow wands all provide family fun without causing a distraction. The “unofficial” start to camping season begins in just a couple of days. Prep yourself for the weekend trip with help from Rayovac.
