If you love camping but can't help but feel frustrated at the cost of all your outdoor equipment, then the Outdoor Exchange subscription service might be of interest to you. Currently seeking funding as an Indiegogo campaign, The OX sharing platform makes camping less expensive. This entrepreneurial endeavour would allow you to borrow camping gear including tents and kayaks.
Not only would the Outdoor Exchange make camping more affordable, it would also free up some of your storage room. As fun as camping is, all the equipment takes up space when you aren't experiencing the great outdoors.
The OX members would pay a flat annual fee of $100 USD until July 2014 for their basic package, which would entitle them to one item per week. Two other packages are also available.
