Gear n Beer? Don't miss the next one...

Kathryn Martens |

Did you guys have a chance to see our first episode of #gearnbeer while we were out camping at Mauthe Lake earlier this week? As Carl's dad would say, we were drinkin' and dreamin' and after a beer (or two) Carl and I came to realize how much we want to share our experiences and adventures with you guys.

Mauthe Lake. View from our campsite. 

Although we are both a little camera shy, we (ahem..Carl...Thanks, Dale's Pale Ale) went for it! Didn't have a chance to see it? Watch it now! 

We always want you guys to #comecampwithus. If you can't be there physically, we want to do our best to let you in on our experiences. So, ready or not, we're going to start sharing our camping adventures with you on a whole new level. More video. More pictures. More gear (and beer) And... we've got some pretty exciting plans in mind for getting our fellow adventurist out to actually #comecampwithus, but we aren't ready to share that just yet! For now, stay tuned for upcoming episodes of #gearnbeer.
