I love an adventure, I think it comes from my girl scouting days while growing up. I loved camp every summer, the more primitive the better, including backpacking and setting up camp every night or paddling the Colorado River on my spring breaks. I never KNEW that kids went on mad beach weeks.

Graham says that through outfitting he finds it the most rewarding to show people the back country and let them discover what they are missing. He wants his clients to have a great experience that is safe but most of all fun!
He provides the experience with such ease which speaks from loving what he does.
Rides are customized to suit the those that are up for a great adventure.
Goodfield takes painting and photography groups where he will pack into an area, and then drop off the clients with their easels or cameras so that they can enjoy a peaceful day of painting and photographing the countryside,
while camp is being set up for them and food is prepared for their return.
Graham is a fabulous camp cook and a typical meal could be Cedar Plank Salmon, Tri-tip Barbeque, Prosciutto Wrapped Prawns, or fresh Pacific Lobster with a bottle of local wine. How about Dutch Oven rattlesnake h'oeuvres and fresh ice cream?
Kids love it too!
How about a bloggy friend reunion? If you have never been to Santa Barbara, YOU MUST!
I've never done the beach this way....I would like to try!
