What guys end up talking about during a 3 day backpacking trip. Cone Peak, Big Sur

This past weekend, I spent a few days with my buddies Joseph and Ryan down in Big Sur—Cone Peak to be exact. I summited Cone Peak in 2014 once with two of my other buddies, but I wanted to go back and show these guys this part of the park.

We hiked in five miles to our site on Friday, hiked 14 miles to/from Cone Peak on Saturday, then hiked out five miles on Sunday. Covering 24 miles and having a couple of campfire sessions, we had a lot of time on our hands for conversations.

One of my favorite things I love about these unplugged trips is the random conversations we have. The long hikes in/out of camp, sitting around a campfire at night sipping Bulleit, or while prepping meals on the MSR… conversations in the outdoors always seem to go from nowhere to somewhere back to nowhere.

In no particular order (and PG Rated), here are just a few things we talked about during our time unplugged.
