Base camp is a term used in the outdoor world to establish a semi-permanent home from which adventures begin. It is defined as a main encampment providing supplies, shelter and communications for personas engaged in wide-ranging activities, such as exploring, reconnaissance, hunting, hiking, mountain climbing and even in the film industry. It is essentially the home away from home and why this month I will be reviewing a few key points listed below on the importance of base camps.
Recently I was asked by the CEO of Kit Fox Outfitters to start taking over the blogs posts and writing from my own perspective, experiences and knowledge of the outdoor world. Writing on anything from conducting gear reviews, trails to hike and campground recommendations. The blogs will be collaboration between the writer and the reader to both grow and take our outdoor skill sets to the next level.
At the end of January I had the opportunity to hunt at the Lone Pine Pheasant Club. After returning from Shot Show we had the amazing opportunity to get in a hunt prepared by the California Rifle and Pistol Club (CRPA) this fund raiser for youth hunting programs was a great opportunity to get in a hunt at a new club in one of my favorite areas. Joining us was Charlie and Justin from Triple B Adventures
This year’s trip to Shot Show took us on another desert adventure from San Diego to Vegas, last time we knocked out the driving on the front half this time we took a slower approach enjoying and exploring our “back yard”.
Last month I had the opportunity to take a quick trip to Kernville California an amazing little town backed up to the Sequoia National Forest. Located roughly four and a half hours from San Diego Kernville makes an excellent weekend getaway for Southern Californians, offering many recreation and relaxation opportunities. While the town its self might be small there is a lot of adventure to be had.
Last month I picked up one of my favorite new campfire staples and had the opportunity to test it out with Triple B Adventures on one of their campouts in the desert. Now let me preface with the fact that I have been on a cast iron binge this year and picked up my second Dutch oven.
