We're hiking a small segment of the Appalachian Trail west in Sterling State Park, NY side!
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.
This cray... the 5th annual?! Damn.
This is a dope overnight camping experience for anyone who has never hiked in and out with their gear. Anyone who's never made their own campfire or wants to practice. Anyone not used to navigating through a forest with a map or using the bathroom without actual bathrooms. The toughest part will be picking a camping spot, but otherwise, this trip is manageable for any physical fitness level. Check the clip below to see how we do camping. NO FEE TO GO. Sign up below.
