Everything You Need to Celebrate the 4th in the Backyard or Backcountry

July 4th is an american time of year. We take the day off work and get outside with our loved ones. Yes, there’s grilling and fireworks involved–but most importantly it’s a time to be with your friends and family. Today, celebrate the  independence and freedom we all share in this country. So whether you’re bringing the party to your backyard or the backcountry, make sure you have the essentials!
