TheGoodLife! “Camp Nice” 2017 – Super Re-Cap Extravaganza!

Have you ever wished you could go back to some of the experiences of your youth but in your adult body with all the wisdom and sense of self you’ve acquired since? We have too. And as firm believers that anything is possible, we’ve taken it a step further and turned that wish into a reality! Welcome to Camp Nice, the ultimate summer camp for adults! What started as an idea for a little camp excursion for the autumnal equinox has evolved over the past four years into a one of a kind communal adventure for family and friends of TheGoodLife! This year was far and beyond the most epic Camp Nice yet! Moving to a new location nestled in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains along the Great Appalachian Valley, Camp Nice 2017 was a private wilderness paradise that included a lake and fleet of boats, miles of hiking terrain, an archery range, an arts & crafts hut, even a haunted cabin in the woods! On top of that there were literally acres of available camping zones, a central cabin village, and both bathing and kitchen facilities meaning campers could go as camp or as glamp as they wanted, no judgement here! If that wasn’t enough, we had the generous support of Burton Snowboards, Cutty Sark Whisky, ABK Beer, and Unreal Snacks, who all contributed in major ways to amplify the Camp Nice experience. From Burton providing extensive camping equipment from their collection with Big Agnes to Cutty Sark throwing a multi-course “Pioneer Dinner” cooked over the fire to ABK keeping Camp Nice hydrated with beer for a week to Unreal Snacks hooking up the best s’mores this side of the Mississippi, this years sponsors were next level. And so were the campers. Representing the wide diversity of TheGoodLife! Fam, 2017’s crop of campers were a radical group of artists, musicians, photographers, models, writers, chefs, activists, and athletes, whose collective creative energy was unmatched. Needless to say, we created some beyond epic experiences! Please settle in and get ready for some major camp vibes as we present the Camp Nice Super Re-Cap Extravaganza!

BridgeRollers x TheGoodLife! 2017 100 Mile 9/11 Tribute Roll

It’s almost impossible to believe that it’s been 16 years since the fateful day known as 9/11 occurred. Arguably the world is a very different place and one in which that same fear that manifested on September 11, 2001 still lingers, often amplified by a seemingly never ending sequence of horrible events. But that is just perception. And perception can be changed. That is why we ride. We ride to remember but we also ride to forget. This year as we passed both landmarks and overlooked nooks of this magnificent city on our way to 100 miles, we created our own reality, one built on appreciation, cooperation and love. THIS IS WHY WE RIDE! Please join us on our journey in film by Craig Wetherby as we present the 8th Annual Bridgerollers x TheGoodLife! 2017 100 Mile 9/11 Tribute Roll. Words by Tim Brodhagen. Gallery after the jump.
