Camping is a great way to get in touch with nature, and a safer alternative to licking a slug or hugging a cactus. Touch friendly, safe nature with today's Groupon: for $150, you get $300 worth of outdoor outfitting and rentals from Piragis Northwoods Company in Ely, Minnesota.
Located in the heart of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, Piragis Northwoods Company outfits excursioneers with all the necessities for embarking into the wily wilderness of northern Minnesota. Before outfitting adventurers, experienced outdoorsmen assist in planning routes and campsites to meet outdoorsy goals and wolf-man-sighting desires. Campers then rent accoutrements such as lightweight Kevlar canoes ($30+/day), solo or tandem kayaks ($30+/day), and Kevlar paddles ($6/day). Alternatively, woodspeople can be fully outfitted with canoes, paddles, packed food, tent and tarp, packs, witch repellent, sleeping bags, and a plethora of other gear ($100/person/day).
When planning tricked-out excursions, patrons can select comestibles from a prefabricated menu, allowing for customizable cookouts over provided burners. Outfitting and rentals are available by the day, week, or quarter-century; decked-out swashbucklers may see a variety of wildlife from eagles and loons to moose and the occasional lone wolf.
