The Happy Camper Lives!

The Happy Camper Lives!

by Basic Terrain

A month ago


Thanks to Jared’s morning mission, we score TWO OF THE DOPEST SPOTS IN THE WHOLE CAMPGROUND!

With the Qulliayute River flowing on the other side of our campsite, we have plenty of space to stretch out and wander. Plenty of time to sit and wonder. Bliss.

I look up at the trees, close my eyes, take a long, deep breath, and smile. It’s been a long time since I had a breath like that. I can’t even recall when that was.

Shallow breathing had become my breath du jour. Long breaths seem to only come along when anxiety rears its ugly ass head.

But here I am, taking it all in, then letting it all out. Breathing without a nervy agenda. I didn’t have to remind myself to “Be Here Now.” I was already there.

  • Hey Dave and Joy… still waiting for your next post…are you guys still out there?
    Please post more content about your skiing / camping trip your pics and posts are super. On a different note… Basic Terrain is awesome… I have been following your journey since Dave’s first Eden Pant sample. I am a filmmaker out here in South African and obviously have no access to your clothes, but I enjoy seeing all your designs on your amazing site. Much respect to the best couple ever and their Basic Terrain team of course :-). PEACE
