Camping, Climbing, Overlanding

Hi! Mike, Lauren, and Cooper the dog here, and we are GoPlay.Outside! We're weekend warriors that love being outdoors, especially if it involves climbing, snowboarding, and exploring National Parks. Nothing makes us happier than eating good food with friends in the mountains. 

Because we've always wanted an adventure rig, during the pandemic we converted a Land Cruiser, that used to be a former emergency response vehicle, into a camper. We've road-tripped most of the southwest and hope to one day check off the rest of North America. We want to share our experiences and knowledge to enable everyone to go play outside!

What's your favorite Mountain House meal?

Beef Stroganoff! It was the highlight of our disastrous first backpacking trip.

What's your favorite place to hunt/hike/fish/camp/be?

Yosemite, hands down...but really, anywhere with a good view and rocks to climb.

Top three pieces of gear that you never leave home without?

A multitool, walkies, and sunscreen/chapstick

What's one bucket list item you plan on checking off this year?

More multi-pitch climbing!
