Here’s a little bit about Eli and Alex Goode…
We both moved to Asheville in the early 2000s and have watched the area grow and change. What kept us here during the following years is our love of the mountains. As outdoor enthusiasts, we spend much of our free time camping and fishing. Like so many, last year confronted us with major life changes, and we found ourselves reevaluating our goals. We had left our jobs as restaurant managers as the result of both the pandemic and other factors.
We decided to build up our Tacoma with an overlanding set-up, and we hit the road for 7 weeks late last summer. We traveled to Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado, dispersed camping as much as possible. We had the advantage of lots of public land with open access. We spent our time fly fishing, hiking, and exploring 4X4 trails. This trip helped bring our lives into focus. We knew we wanted to create a business where we could help others have similar experiences, on a smaller scale.
We are so lucky to call Western North Carolina home. We have a wealth of beautiful land that is perfect for exploring and offers access to some of the best trails, streams and rivers in the Southeast. We’re excited to connect locals and visitors to Overland style camping. Whether you are an angler, mountain biker, or any other type of adventure seeker, we can provide everything you need in a mobile basecamp, to maximize your adventure.
