Swift Campout Trip Journals –July 10th

We’ve been sitting at the local watering hole, recounting and reliving our vagabond days on Swift Campout. It’s time to pull out that old pencil and paper and draw us in with your trail stories. Four dynamic trip journals will be featured on builtbyswift.com and the winnings will sweeten the deal. We’re only days into summer, and the Trip Journal Prizes are sure to accompany you for a summer of rambling.

We’re looking for short films that make us want to quit our jobs and take to the open road!

Take us along for an adventure. We’re gathering Swift Campout Films to inspire the next person to pack up some camp gear and pedal out to parts unknown. Make it so good we think we can smell the smoke of last night’s fire in our clothes, and feel the hard earned miles in our legs.

  1. I wish I could have submitted something, but I don’t have Word or Google docs, so I didn’t. I do have a suggestion for 2016 Swiftcampout…could you provide journals for purchase that can be used with watercolors? The waxy pages of those this year were not able to accept many mediums. I ended up using sharpies. Word makes a nifty little one that comes in a 3 pack with organized pages. I love mine and have filled a few. http://www.wordnotebooks.com/collections/the-adventure-log/products/the-adventure-log THANKS!
