Today, we returned to the jagged cliffs of coastal California for the first time in 4 years, eating oranges picked straight from a giving tree down in foggy Ojai. Looking over this desert of blue ocean, we wonder how the hell we stayed away for so long and mumble to ourselves "you know, this calls for celebration."
So we're stuffing our packs with 3,4,5 days of gear and walking out into the ocean-front wilderness, to the sandy spaces where no cars go. Trading the bus for a tent, rubber tires for our own two feet.
Heard that if you hike down into the bluffs a few miles, or a few dozen, you can pitch a tent and stake out stretches of private beach for your own, for a few days anyways. So we're out, dear friends. See you in awhile, salty and sunburnt and all the wiser. We're headed out to where no cars go. #gearvalanche
