Camping, Overlanding, & Lifestyle blog

We're the Staples

We’re Sonya and Necota, your outdoor experts and friends on this journey into the outdoors. We started our camping journey just a few short years ago and it quickly snowballed into off-roading and overlanding. With our newfound love of glamping, we wanted to share it with our friends and family, but no one understood why we wanted to “rough it” outside. So we started making YouTube videos to educate and encourage friends, family, and the Black and Brown community to experience the life-changing effect of the outdoors.

Follow along on our journey for insight into our favorite gear, destinations and to learn more about how we live our a life InTents.

Hold up!!!

We’ve picked up several new friends, and wanted to take a moment to reintroduce ourselves.

We are college sweetheart, who met and fell in love @ncatsuaggies. #aggiepride💙💛

We’re based in #atlanta, a place that we’ve called home for 20+years🏙

We are city people, but In 2016, in an effort to “Say Yes” to each other, we “discovered” camping and saved our marriage❤️🏕 

In just a few months, we knew we had to share our new found love of the outdoors and created #staplesintents.

From our camping trips at our first state park, to each journey around the US, and abroad, we’ve grown to who we are now…

We are full time #overlanders, passionately working to create a more diverse and inclusive outdoor.

We share our our life and adventures via our #YouTube channel, to educate and inspire others about travel and outdoor adventure.

During our signature event, The Gathering, we create safe and welcoming space where everyone can feel comfortable and become more confident and curious about outdoor adventure.

This year, you have two opportunities to join us @thegatheringbysi:

August 18-22 @campvco (Vancorum, CO) 

October 14-16 @reebranch (Asheville, NC)
