    The Dusty Camel is first the deep friendship of 2 American thru-hikers, Ian Mangiardi and Andy Laub, who met along the Appalachian trail. In spring 2011, they decided to go for a new outdoor adventure travel, hiking over the 2,600 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. Running from the border with Mexico to the Canadian border, the Pacific Crest Trail was used by settlers in the 1800s looking for the good life in California, Oregon and Washington. Ian and Andy made a wonderful movie, As it Happens, from this six-month journey, showing how much this trip was a challenging and in-depth experience. But the aim of this movie goes far beyong showing the beauty of the US backcountry:

    The Dusty Camel is committed to protecting America’s wild spaces. Its mission- inspire people to to go outdoors, and give them the tools to have a life changing journey. They use their experience to give the best advice to have a successful expedition or adventure of any kind.

    The Dusty Camel will do as their ancestors did thousands of years ago– take advantage of man’s freedom to roam.  We follow one simple concept — more people that enjoy the outdoors, means more people to protect it.
