spirit quest

/ˈspirit/ /kwest/

an outlandish journey not for the faint of heart, to experience something many dream of, in a time frame unreasonable to most.

 

 

SPIRIT QUEST 3.0

We just can't help it.

When those Spirit Quest vibes start flowing through our veins, we can't ignore them – nor do we want to.

It's snowy up north and sunny in the south, so this time we got our eye (and hearts) set on sunrise in Yosemite NPS, California.

Yep, you read that right.

3 days.
3,500 kms.
~45 hours of driving.
A sh*tload of coffee.
And one of the raddest spots in the world with some of the raddest people we know.

 

Yosemite and back – in a weekend?!
Are you f*cking crazy? (umm, probably)

We know most people are going to say no to this, which is exactly why we know we got to do it.

We don't want to be "most people". We want to be the people that get to look back on not have to regret the things we didn't do.

We want to be able to look back and know we left it on the table.

If you're one of those, we'll see you down there.

This, our friends, is going to be another for the books.

 

PS. For a whole bunch of legal reasons, this isn't an official CS event.
Think of it more as an individual roadtrip with a whole bunch of us all committing loosely to the same game plan.
We've detailed our whole plan below, but you will be responsible for your own well-being, safety, guidance, and accommodations through out. Feel free to follow closely to it or make your own and meet us out at the Yosemite National Park.

Take a read through our schedule.
