Under the Stars // CA Campout

Last Saturday, we camped, and cheers’d with over 250 of our closest west coast comrades for our second Under the Stars campout. The celebratory gathering outdoors was held at Oz Farm—one of the first land sharing properties to list on Hipcamp, and surely one of the most magical.

The occasion? Well, there’s a hell of a lot to celebrate! How about launching all fifty states just last week, opening up our land sharing program so anyone can list nationally, and to give kudos to all of the amazing people who have supported us along this journey. Mega-shoutout to everyone who helped us host this crazy event:

The North Face (tent saviors), Culture Collide (event & music gurus), Lagunitas (keeping the good time flowin’) , Stumptown Coffee (8 a.m. camp coffee demo!!!), Banshee Wines (the wines that went like lightning), Brooks Dry Cider (California’s raddest gluten-free cider), Deep Eddy Vodka, Hook Fish Co. (serving sustainable dinner that was caught just a few hours north of Oz!) , Ladera Granola (breakfast bar of champs), Rumpl (snuggle room!), Goal Zero (keepin’ it solar powered), Coleman USA (keepin’ the Stumptown cold brew cold), Outdoor Nation (recipient of all MiiR cup proceeds), Revive Kombucha (the best damn kombucha in the world), Parks Project (tees!), Rdio(have you checked out our campout playlist?), Do the Bay, SF Station, Vetiver (acoustic jams), Gap Dream (dance jams), Molly DeCoudreaux Photography, Monica Semergiu Photography, plus all of the amazing bodies that helped setup, synchronize, and steward the event.

Over 800 professional photos were taken, and over 250 posted on Instagram using #UnderTheStarsCA. Join us as we get a little nostalgic over what happens when you bring good people together, have no cell service, and spend a night outdoors.
