Beginner Camping Trip, Third Time's a Charm!


You've been cooped up all winter. Snow stopped being sexy months ago. You work, got kids, gotta keep your hustle movin' and don't have too much time for a major adventure, but you're itching to get out and do something awesome, maybe a little cray, too. Well, you're in luck, 'cause Outerthere is doing a beginner camping trip! Yeah!

This will be Outerthere's 3rd attempt at a beginner camping trip in the spring and if it works, will begin a new tradition. If you go, you'll find out what happened at the first two attempts. We'll be backpacking through the legendary Appalachian Trail and camping at Sterling Mountain, where NY and NJ stare each other down to see who's more cray. (BTFU NJ). Wondering what "beginner" means? Check my explanations.

RSVP to get all the details about what to pack and the what to bring to eat, so you don't have to stress and overthink it. And for the first time ever, the camper who comes up with the most used phrase of the trip gets a free Outerthere tee-shirt after. Word. We’ll be meeting at Penn Station at 8:45a on Saturday and heading back as soon as we get up on Sunday, returning back to Penn Station.


You can easily spend over $1,000 to get all the right gear for this trip. (Curious what kind of gear you need? Check out the Outerthere gear list for this time of year.) However, that's not recommended for an overnight trip. If you don't have any friends you can borrow from (or a trust fund that won't even feel this kind of spending), then check out Outerthere homies Traverse Outfitters, the largest outdoor rental guys in NYC. Ask for Avi and tell 'em Al sentcha. He'll hook you up with whatever you're missing and you can save that money for beers, your dealer, or diapers, whatever your priorities, yo.
