    Camping in lower pines at Yosemite… Day 2

    Oprah confesses in the duration of her and Gayle’s 30 year friendship Gayle has not cooked a single thing. WOW! I have never met a female who does not cook.

    Another confession comes when the 2 make dinner. Oprah realizes her dinner ingredients (sea bass and rosemary potatoes) were not made for camping. (giggles) Oprah here ya go…campfire fish how to.

    I love watching these 2 besties interact!!! Thank U Oprah!!!!!!! Too bad Lady O does not like to play board games and such. I love games!

    OMG! I just laughed and laughed watching the girls at breakfast time. Oprah wants to just do a grab and go breakfast of fruit while Gayle wants eggs, cheese, tomatoes, and avocado. Oprah makes scrambled eggs and toast.

    • Yosemite Park Ranger Shelton Johnson tells a story about Buffalo Soldiers

    Marketing Gold: Corporate World Riding The Winfrey Wave

    Becoming OCF’s (Oprah Corporate Friends) so to speak with Oprah is where you want to be, especially during her final season. There has been plenty of news circulating about Oprah sticking Australia with a hefty bill to help make the upcoming Ultimate Australia Adventure happen. I’m not sure how many days Oprah is planning to tape during their visit just yet. I suspect at least a week, since the show site has not yet opened audience reservations for Australia. But, I think the Aussie businesses are sure to see a spike in revenue with hundreds and potentially thousands of guests from around the globe. Who wouldn’t want to par-take in regional treats, trinkets and tours when you’re on vacation? If I had the cash flow I would be flocking there myself!

    Here’s a list of other OCF’s (Oprah Corporate Friends)

    • Chevy
    • Coleman (Camping Gear)
    • REI

    An Inspiring Camping Trip

    First things first, you need to gear up for your camping trip. Discovering REI for the first time, Gayle likes to look at all the options while Oprah just relied on the knowledge of the sales guy. Why do these two besties take a camping trip? According to Yosemite Park Ranger Shelton Johnson, African-Americans make only 1% of the population who visit national parks each year.

    Here are a couple of places Oprah and Gayle visited the first day of their trip:

    The Grizzly Giant

    Tunnel View

    The Camping Happy Hour (Oprah makes Moscow Mules)

    • 1 Ounce Vodka
    • 1/2 Cup Ginger Beer
    • 1 tsp. Simple Syrup
    • 1 Sprig Fresh Mint
    • Fresh Lime Juice

    Oprah surprises a couple she met in Yosemite by giving away the Chevey Hybrid Tahoe and her Coleman Camper.

    I can remember visiting Yosemite as a young girl with family and our family friends. What a fun time, I agree with Oprah that everyone should see and experience the beauty of Yosemite 🙂

    Get caught up on Part 2 of the trip here.
