Hipcamp

Hipcamp is an organization who's goal is to get more people outside and make it easy to discover and book campsites.  They sponsored this weekend camping thing in upstate New York in Ghent.  
Catskill Mill provided a food truck

they also provided this 18 hr slow roasted 5 spice pig and dinner

Northface and Gear Commons provided tents for everyone

we were the cool kids for a brief moment in the saturday sun when we whipped out our wiffle ball set






meat is gross.  it's delicious but it's gross.  This guy was pretty good




The Olsens were there

after dinner a jamboree in the forest
This drummer was really goin' at it.



2 bands played that night, Caveman and The Woods.



people said I looked like a hipster John Snow, I said shut up I don't watch that show, and then pulled out my sword and slayed them
s'mores.  At this point everyone was good and drunk on free sponsored booze from Lagunitas beer, City Winery, and Deep Red Vodka and it was definitely time for bed.  I woke up with a melted hershey's bar in my pocket

the night was so so so cold in that tent.  And then it got so so so hot once the sun came out.

morning arrives over New Tent City

these personal single person sized tents are cute
Blue Bottle coffee from San Francisco set up a table in the morning to provide caffeine.  Overall I've been told this is not "glamping".  I guess Glamping is even more pampered.



an odd thing to sell at a gas station
We happened upon a beach.  We were just looking for grass to lay on at the Clarence Fahnestock Memorial State Park and stumbled upon an afternoon at the beach and row boating.
