Semi-annual camping trip with two of my favorite campers, Kevin and Maria.

Why I camp with them:

I go places I’ve never been before. And I get in some decent hiking mileage.

I”m guaranteed a “tour guide” type trip with Kevin pointing out every mountain peak in sight because he’s climbed 99% of them.

I learn how to eat in the woods without freeze-dried meals.

I get to try out what it’s like to haul everything of mine on my back and learn to tweak what I need to do and not do to make it more comfortable.

There’s always wine. And views.
