It’s funny how, when you look at the kids you grew up with, some of them have ended up exactly where you thought they would. If you told me 15 years ago that in 2009 my buddy Jon O’Connor would be leading outdoor adventures trips, I probably would’ve said, “Yeah, that sounds about right”. And he is. Remember last year when I asked to see who was interested in going to Nepal? This is the same cat. And this trip is a lot closer to home.
Jon and I were having a conversation recently and we hit on the fact that, because of the economy, people aren’t getting to take as many trips as they’d like. So we decided to put something together that isn’t too far from the Bay and is mad affordable. So I am now presenting the 2009 Broke-Ass Humboldt Trip. This is your chance to explore the outdoor beauty of Humboldt County on a Broke-Ass budget.
The trip is from August 21st-23rd and includes:
- A Canopy Tour in Redwood Park
- A Segway Tour around historic Arcada
- Sea Kayaking on a guided tour of Humboldt Bay, Woodley Island, and Eureka
- Mountain Biking the Arcata Community Forest
- Saturday Morning Yoga
- Rock Climbing
- Meals and Drinks
Sounds like a lot of awesomeness doesn’t it? And the best part is, you get ALL of this for only $291! I don’t even know how much this would cost if it were all done separately, but it would be a shit ton more expensive. The only things not included in this package are transportation to/from Humboldt and lodging. And in terms of that I bet we can we can figure out ride shares from the Bay and maybe you folks can split a room. Plus there’s always Couchsurfing.org.
Sound like something you’re interested in? Then holler at me so I can fill you in on the exact itinerary and we can work out the details. Make sure to check out North Coast Adventure Center (Jon’s company), if you wanna get a better idea of what all these activities are like.
