The Modernica factory in downtown L.A. builds gorgeous Eames replica fiberglass chairs and for the lucky few, you can watch the process. We go yearly to the Modernism fair, pick up a few pieces and stare in awe at how these beauties are made. Some of the original machinery from the 1950s is used as well. This year, we also met our new friends from @fortgoods and we cannot wait to take furniture making classes with them! #dtla #modernica #eames #adventuresintreasures #hiddengems (at Downtown Modernism Mid-Century Marketplace)
Letting this slide only because underneath this poster are hidden images of pinup girls in bikinis and rhinos humping. Very controversial stuff. #punctuationpolice #caadventureclub (at The Adventurers’ Club)
Once in a blue moon, you a fortunate to stumble upon situations that are almost impossible to describe to anyone afterwards. Ones that leave you with such joy and bewilderment that you could never accurately re-tell the tale of. Tonight we had the privilege of spending the evening with The Adventurers’ Club of Los Angeles, a private gentlemen’s club,founded by Captain Jack Roulac in 1921. It is dedicated to world-wide adventure – travel off the beaten path.
We met the oldest man to climb Mt. Everest, a gentleman claiming to be former special opps and countless characters that have experienced a lifetime and then some.
Since its founding, Club members have met nearly every week to share their exotic adventures that range from going to outer space to trekking across Death Valley and diving Antarctica. They begin each gathering with dinner and cocktails (from a tiki honor bar, no less) and continue to the main room for presentations- a room which is covered in so many treasures from travels that even the Smithsonian would turn the darkest of greens. Tonight’s topic was on hiking and photography in Iceland which was especially exciting to us as we are planning a trip in the near future.
Before each meeting begins, a bell is rung several times and moment of silence is observed for adventurers lost but not forgotten. Current members announce their names, numbers, introduce their guests and tell tales of recent or upcoming adventures.
Forget history class. Everything you need is within these walls. #adventuresinadventures #iceland #photography #explorer #taxidermy #hiddengems #justdoit (at The Adventurers’ Club)
Birthdays have their privileges and this go around the sun includes a one of a kind print by one of our favorite designers. 1/1 #staygold #adventuresintype #californiadreaming
While hiking in Santa Anita Canyon, you will notice cabins dotting the landscape. These were built between 1907-1936 as part of the Forest Service’s ‘Residential Residence Program.’ All are privately owned with a 20 year lease. There is no electricity, no septic and no garbage service. All leading to a 50ft waterfall. If you want a similar experience (with electricity and running water of course), you can hike 4 miles into the mountains and stay at Sturtevant Camp where you can blaze your own trail while playing horseshoes, riding a zip line and cruising down a water slide. Everything must be hiked in or carried in by donkeys just like they did it in 1893. www.adamspackstation.com #sturtevantfalls #sangabrielmountains #chantryflat #adamspackstation #adventuresinhiking (at Sturtevant Falls)
It’s like the more awesome version of our house. Getting some serious inspiration for our campers while seeing products from friends and brands we love. 😍 #ojai #adventuresintreasures @hedleyandbennett @scoutregalia (at Shop Summer Camp)
Oh hai, Ojai! Today we are adventure scouting in Ojai. On the agenda: swimming, bike riding, laying in a teepee. The end. #ojai #adventuresinadventures (at Ojai Rancho Inn)
