What. A. Week. 

Some amazing people raised their hand to create camping & backpacking itineraries last week. A huge thanks to Mel, Bridget, Tessa, Tyler, Gabriel, Devin, Kevin, Gabaccia & Jonny for sharing their collective knowledge with the Bewilder community. 

We're always looking for campers to drop their trail wisdom, especially when it comes to family camping, so if you know of anyone (ahem, you), please holla at your girl (ahem, me)! 

Speaking of families, we're partnering with The Desert Institute to dream up a fun and educational event for families in Joshua Tree National Park. Fill out our quick survey below & let us know if it's something you'd be interested in (Psst: It might involve a private, exclusive campground in Joshua Tree reserved just for Bewilder families).

ANYWAY! I've been thinking a lot about how to grow our community on and offline. Would you ever want to join a group car camping and/or backpacking trip and meet other Bewilder Beasts IRL? (You bet I just made up that nickname. Don't hate me.) Or, are itineraries enough?

Reply with "EVENTS" if you're down to hang in person. 

Your ever-grateful Bewilder Beast,

Yvonne

A WEEKEND BACKPACKING TRIP IN TAHOE NATIONAL FOREST

For friends & first-time backpackers

TIL: Tahoe National Forest is one of the most popular national forests in America. It helps that you don't need a permit to roam in the backcountry, but it's mostly because of the area's incredible natural beauty. You can climb the Sierra Buttes, hike parts of the Pacific Crest Trail, or soak in the Yuba River. 

Check out our backpacking trip itinerary to 5 Lakes Basin & experience the magic yourself. Pups are welcome too!

HELLOOO, TAHOE!

HEY PARENTS, WANNA GO TO JOSHUA TREE?

We're partnering with the Desert Institute to dream up a special event for families who are new to camping.

If you had to bring your own gear & food, would you be interested in: 
- A three-day, two-night reservation at an exclusive group campground in Joshua Tree National Park
- A complimentary Joshua Tree National Park vehicle pass
- Practical tips for car camping & meal prep for kids
- Educational nature hikes
- Campfire activities and/or star gazing workshops
- Workshops on how to be responsible stewards of the desert

Spare us a couple minutes to let us know either way! Your answers will shape future family-friendly events for all of us.

YOU PICK, WE PLAN.
