Columbia Basecamp Outdoor Series: “When You Just Have to Laugh: Mishaps and Misadventures.”

We'll be back for a third night of basecamp at Columbia Sportswear for a night of storytelling, laughter and a few Sierra Nevada brews.

Tonight we’ll be graced by Justin Bailey of the Outdoor Ethos and Melissa Goodwin of Girl Gotta Hike. These NYC based adventurers will be sharing their stories of “When You Just Have to Laugh….Mishaps and Misadventures” as they navigate living in the city and loving the outdoors.

Next, we will open the story slam to all of you! We'll randomly choose two people to tell YOUR stories. Each story will be limited to 5 minutes and we ask that you keep it PG. 

This will be a night to remember so find your story with the theme "When You Just Have to Laugh….Mishaps and Misadventures" and bring it with you to Columbia on the 5th!

OutdoorFest is a 10-day outdoor adventure festival in the five boroughs of New York City. Join us from May 31 – June 9, 2019 to paddle, bike, hike, camp and more all over the city!

About your host:

Columbia Sportswear Company was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, making gear so that Pacific Northwesterners could enjoy the outdoors longer. At the helm for over 45 years has been our Chairman, Gert Boyle. Her Tough Mother ethos has grown Columbia into the global sportswear company that it is today—still based in Portland, still making no-nonsense apparel and footwear to protect you from the elements.

TESTED TOUGH PROMISE: Mrs. Boyle once famously said, “It’s perfect. Now make it better.” Her ethos is what charges us every day to make gear that is TESTED TOUGH. TESTED TOUGH is the guarantee that every Columbia product has been tested in the harshest conditions Mother Nature can muster. Not just by the Boyles, but by every Columbia employee, day in and day out. The entire company carries on the Boyle family spirit, always designing and testing products to keep you more protected more of the time.
