ASR @ Mancamp

ASR @ Mancamp

If you're here chances are you're locked in for this year's Mancamp, Oct 21-23rd just outside of Cincinnati, OH! If you missed registration get your $70 ready, there's always a flash sale the week after MC.

We'll manage most details via GM and google drive but I'll post a lot of stagnant links here because it's easier. The biggest thing now will be getting your gear, but don't trip many things we'll buy as a unit, though some things you will want for yourself. The link that MC emailed us does a solid job of describing how to prepare and what to expect; we'll discuss more of that next week via Zoom (and over email).

 

  • Our Recommendations | Amazon List
  • Doug's Camping Pack | Dick's Sporting Goods
    • you don't need this exact bag (I chronically overpack, which you do NOT wanna do for MC lol) but I do suggest
    • an internal frame (keeps your shit from weighing you down on the hike in)
    • No less than 50 liters (this pack will hold EVERYTHING you bring, any less than this you'll end up carrying something by hand which you don't want)
  • Doug's '20 MC Purchases | Amazon List
    • sharing this only so you can learn from some of my mistakes lol
    • Also, YouTube is your friend!

Reminder: this isn't our event, we don't manage the details (or any of the liabilities lol) but we'll be responsible for each other as a unit.

So Mr. Karver went on this trip for the first time last year: without a doubt, life changing and a TON of fun. We recommend checking out the FAQs on their page cause they cover WAY more details than we will but:

  • Is it legit camping? Yes.
  • Was it a weekend away with unlimited beer on site? Also yes.
  • Is it sponsored by a church? Yes (we know some of you are already confused lol)
  • Was it out of his comfort zone? My God yes. And somehow that made it all THAT much more worth it.
