Stay at the Stepladder Ranch & Creamery

Stepladder Ranch and Stepladder Creamery

The truth is, I secretly love rainy day weekends. It gives me an excuse to slow down, be lazy, and catch up on things around the house. I was preparing to tuck myself away for the weekend when my friend, Liz from Nipomo, reached out about a getaway to the Stepladder Ranch.

As an avid pop country music fan, farms and ranches are absolutely my thing. Growing up, I also raised pigs in the 4-H program. I was instantly sold on heading down to Cambria on California’s Central Coast to experience the magic.

Backcountry Gourmet with Adventure Dining Guide

Backcountry Backpacking Meals Adventure Dining Guide

Every summer Alpenglow Sports hosts an annual, free Mountain Festival, filled with adventure and fun for people of all ages and skill levels. When I saw backpacking and backcountry gourmet on the menu, I was sold. If there’s anything I love almost as much as being outside, it’s food. And cats, but that’s a different story. Alpenglow Sports partnered with Michelle from Adventure Dining Guide to lead a women’s trip out into the wilderness. The destination was originally Desolation Wilderness, but with the ridiculous snow year, plans changed to Watson Lake. It was a little closer and suited for women of all skill levels. Coming straight from sea level, I was a little grateful for the venue change and for being spared many miles of huffing at the back of the group like a fool.

Frontcountry Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Frontcountry Vietnamese Spring Roll Camp Recipe

Camp food is, unfortunately, not high on my list of things to do well. It’s a little weird because I love eating and I love good food. My go-to dishes are usually pasta, stir fries, or if it’s been a long day, salami and cream cheese. Lately, I’ve been exploring different ideas for camping food, because why should I eat the same ol’ things when I’m out in the wilderness? I started racking my brain for some of my favorite home-cooked dishes that I could modify for camping. Spring rolls were the first thing to come mind.
