Tell us about your Shoestring Adventures!
I was a first-time Shoestring Warrior when I went on the Montana De Oro adventure with my wife, her second Shoestring Adventure. I was apprehensive about camping with strangers to be honest, but everyone couldn’t have been nicer, and we had a great time! Alyx and Abbey were excellent hosts/guides.
What advice do you have for first-time campers who want to get outdoors?
Just do it!! You won’t regret it. I’m still a beginner, but I recommend bringing some hand warmers, the kind you shake up and they stay hot for about 8 hours. If you get cold at night, just stuff them in between two layers of socks, and you’ll be very cozy!
The perfect s’more?
Marshmallow a little burnt, a lot of chocolate and cinnamon graham crackers!
