Activity: Backpackin', Hot-Springin'
Difficulty: Strenuous (20 miles over three days)
Everyone’s doin’ Big Sur these days. So what’s with all the hype, you may be wondering? Well, to start, it’s one of the most beautiful places on the whole dadgum planet. Second, speaking of dad’s, all of you newbies might not be aware of the trip leading tour de force that was Dadsquad. Harrison, the only surviving member of the original Dadsquad, will be manning the helm on this trip, accompanied by fledgling Dadsquader Afton “Be-bobrocksteady” Montgomery. This new iteration of the infamous squad will be sure to deliver the goods across 20 scenic miles of dadbauchery, culminating in an unforgettable hot springs experience. In short, this is the trip of a lifetime that all other so-called “Big Sur” trips will be talking about for years to come.
