Photo © 2014 Kris Holbrook

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!
