We are only two days away from this weekend’s Ojai Camping Trip with Outdoor Discovery School! The weekend includes hiking in the Los Padres National Forest, gourmet camp meals, a dutch oven cooking workshop, yoga, soaking in a natural hot spring and a night photography class. If you haven’t registered yet, you’re in luck! We still have a few spots open, and I’m extending a special discount to my readers and members of Shoestring Adventures LA. Enter code “meetup” upon checkout to get $22 off. Click here to register!

In anticipation, I have created a gear list that you might also find useful for your other car camping adventures. So get packing, and I’ll see you in Ojai!
