Camp Vibes (there's a # in there somewhere)

I've an avid fan of the pop-up campsite. Impromptu overnighters have quickly become my go-to for an evening hungry for spontaneity and adventure. The protocol calls for my Big Agnes 2 sleeper, a couple thermoses full of something warm and boozy, lanterns, sleeping accessories, and of course the camera bag. Here's a few of the documented nights I've engaged over the last 3 months.

There's something fun and invigorating about making a last minute decision to plunk down somewhere you shouldn't be and attempt a good night's sleep. Good way to get to know yourself...or someone else. For some cool campsite photos others have shared, check out camptrend.com. I'm a fan of what they do.
