Camping Well: The new era.

Hey there friends. Well, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I know. It has.  I was reminded today of something I wrote year ago. I wanted to take this site in a new direction. While I explored a few different avenues, it occurred to me that what I want to do is not too far off of what i’ve done. I’m not going to talk about double-breasted Brooks Brothers suits or leather wingtips, though I may sneak in a pair from time to time, I’m just going to talk about what I know. And what I know, as a Denver native, is the art (and I stress art) of “headlight camping.” Headlight Camping? Yes. I am not one to backpack in 11 miles before finding a spot to pitch a tent. I prefer to have the car within sight, a fire raging, and plenty of whiskey and guitars to make the night a blur of amazing. I would like to introduce you to the new venture, Camp Well. Right now, yeah, it’s a baby of an idea, but the goal for this is so much more. An online shop stocked with items I believe in and would actually use camping versus what it might LOOK like you would take camping. Trust me, ain’t no one gonna wear that $150 “rugged” shirt camping just to get drunk, climb a tree, and rip the shit out of it when you jump down and nearly stumble into the fire.

So stay tuned. This is gonna be fucking fun, man.

Here’s the philosophy: just be cool, have fun, don’t be a dick, and, above all else, camp well.

Peace trails,

Will and Camp Well



  1. Fantastic, dude. There is a camp store in my neighborhood but they only sell high tech lightweight mountaineering stuff, and put up their nose at me for wanting cheap stuff for having fun and car camping. I know there are a lot of people like me, and I hope Camp Well takes off!

    • Thanks, Jake. That’s one of my reasons for this, actually. I live near an REI, and as much as I like that store and their philosophy, it’s overwhelming sometimes going in there. So massive, I’ll end up leaving with nothing or something I didn’t need. If you want to see something on Camp Well, let me know!
