Nick Petrilla and I went on a mini-vacay camping trip at Nira Campground in the Los Padres National Forest this past weekend, somewhere northeast of Hwy 154. Campfires weren't allowed, which was a bummer. To battle the near-freezing cold, we wore some Uncle Chuck wine blankets, made some grilled cheese with tomato soup, and lit a two-log fire. We were worried a ranger would be knocking on our tent come 6:30 this morning, but we lucked out. Rebels. Here are some pictures from our barren campsite and the hike we went on. Pleasant talks were had. Suck Fest 2015 is coming; Ghost Lovers are already on the bill. Scope Irvine Sucks Dot Com. Camp more.
