Kelly doesn’t organize his stuff when he camps.
Kelly is a mess.
Don’t be like Kelly
When Mal goes camping, she organizes her stuff.
Mal uses Swift Wanderlust packers to keep her gear tidy.
Mal is smart.
Be like Mal.

This weeks's #swiftcampoutadventurewagons from @jonny_onetime! Jonny's story about this bike warmed our hearts and brought a tear to our eye.
"That same night it was stolen from beside my van while I was asleep. Whoever stole the bike had wiggled the post out of the ground and walked off my bike with it. When I looked outside in the early early morning I couldn't believe that my bike wasn't there. I immediately messaged Golden Saddle because I knew that @kylebkelley has a reputation for finding used bikes and returning them to their owner.
I went down to the LA river every day for a week trying to see if I could find it. Eventually I had to leave California and start heading east towards home. Five weeks went by and I had given up hope. I was in New Mexico and got a message unexpectedly from @goldensaddlecyclery. THEY HAD MY BIKE! Kyle had gone out to go for an MTB ride and seen a blue bike in the back of a truck. He negotiated with the guys who had it and bought it back for $100.
Miraculously everything was still intact on my bike including the lights. The finish had been scratched and my water bottle cages had been turned upside down. That was the only damage done thankfully. Golden Saddle is legendary for returning mine and so many others bicycles!"
Thanks for sharing and the photo @jonny_onetime!

"My #swiftcampoutadventurewagons philosophy is keep it simple. No matter if it’s a few days or a few months I always end up packing about the same amount of gear. Which isn’t much. The less you have to carry, the less you have to worry about." - @whitneyft -
