Theme song for Base Camp @ Grand Lake

We are Larry and Stella. In December of 2015 we relocated to Colorado from Green Bay, Wisconsin. The summer of 2016 had been our first time visiting Grand Lake, and after which, we never left. Grand Lake had become our permanent summer home. The following summer, 2017, we launched Base Camp @ Grand Lake. This website has been an exciting work in progress ever since, and continues to evolve!

We are outdoor adventure enthusiasts who are passionate about hiking, biking, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling, backcountry snowshoeing, and two types of cross-country skiing. We are dedicated to the provision of honest product reviews for outdoor gear, comprehensive posts about our year-round adventures, as well as being a resource for outdoor and environmental issues. Additionally, we aim to provide valuable information about the Winnebago Micro Minnie FLX 2108DS travel trailer that we purchased in 2022.

Please join us on our adventures, exploring water and trails: anywhere, anytime.

Our beautiful golden girls whom were both taken by cancer. Goldie (left) was a regal beauty with a gentle, nurturing demeanor and an unparalleled degree of intuition (11/11/03 – 8/26/16). Aspen (right) was our sweet little girl with endless energy and an abundance of loving kisses for all (3/20/05 – 3/31/2019). Their spirits are ever-present, yet we are forever broken without them.
