Austin’s 4th of July Campout


Our beloved Austin & Michelle

Friends, Music, and Plenty of Beer

The sun peaked over the horizon as I boarded the plane in route to Seattle. My final destination to be somewhere in the Washington woods, accompanied with friends, music, and plenty ( 3 kegs ) of beer. A great reason to leave home for a few days. Shortly after touching down in Seattle I met with Adam Crew. He guided me through the city and onto the ferry. We laughed about

stories of the night before, and the challenge of making a 7am flight on a Friday morning. The ferry left dock. It was clear and hot. The ferry brought us to the other side of the water into a quaint town which name I can’t recall (Bainbridge Island). We found some shade and waited for a bus to never arrive. An hour later we considered hitchhiking to The Patriot, then made a better decision to grab a beer… Eventually we made it the Patriot and cruised though narrow wooded roads with the windows open cooling us from the day’s weary travels. We made it to Austin’s place ( Kingston, Wa) with plenty of sunlight in the day. Austin and Michelle greeted us both with welcoming hugs. I haven’t seen them in over a year and it quickly felt like no time had past.

Austin had crafted wooden benches and tables around fire pits. A teepee stood over a cliff that Michelle had sewn the night before.  Before arriving I thought I would be roughing it for the next few days. Not true. Austin and Michelle cooked the entire time feeding friends, family and coworkers ( approximately 60 of us ) home cooked meals including a pig roast on Saturday night.

For the next few days everyone enjoyed music on the homely constructed stage, a lot of Rainer Lager, and late nights near the fire overlooking the Puget Sound. Through everyone I had the chance to meet there was definitely one conscientious. Though Austin’s dedication to the outdoors and hosting, we were all able to enjoy this amazing place together.
