As you probably know, 50 Campfires is dedicated to family camping. It’s our mission to get people outside - and outside more often. Traditionally the Daily Outdoor podcast is dedicated to topics that directly effect this take on the world. In early September, I had the chance to sit down with Mark Norquist, who operates a brand called Modern Carnivore. I met Mark about a year ago when both of us were attending the Outdoor Bloggers Summit in Bentonville Arkansas - and we hit it off. I asked...

On the last Saturday of June 2018, I found myself hanging out inside of a Tentsile tree tent in the heart of the redwood forest in Northern California. You’ve probably seen these tents - or have at least heard of them. I like to think of them as a grown up camping tree house. They’re super cool. Anyways, I was fortunate enough to be hanging out with Alex, the founder of the company. Like I usually do, I took out my phone, and recorded our conversation. I found it fascinating to hear about...

In June of 2018, the 50 Campfires team was fortunate to spend a day in Fort Collins, Colorado - and hang out at the New Belgium Brewery. While we were familiar with New Belgium, and have drank our fair share of their beers over the years, we were less familiar with the employee-owned business model that the brewery was founded under. The story of how New Belgium started and continues to operate to this day was a story that we knew we had to share...with you. I hope you enjoy this one-on-one...

On Monday, March 26 we invited musician Shane Secor into camp at Lake Griffin State Park in Florida to play a 50 Campfires : Campfire Session. It's always great to connect with local and national musicians as our paths cross - and this was no exception. Shane's music blurs the lines between country, folk and even punk rock.
