Away we Go
Offering provisions for your adventure
- ABOUT US -
For the love of camping. That's why we're here. Our lives together have centered around adventures under the stars, within these woods, over a mountain, in a stream and beside a campfire.
The key thing. We love spur of the moment. Grab your pack. Fill a cooler. Cook over the fire. Above all... let's get moving.
We've started the Jumping Off Point for these reasons. Allow anyone the ability to get into nature and onto adventure.
This is the shop where we are focused on the experience of camping.
Food comes first. We offer food in "camping" quantities. You don't have to buy a whole bag of marshmallows - when you really only need 10. Do you love the weekend car camp? We've got you covered for great breakfasts and easy after hiking dinners. Decide you want to extend it? We'll get your provisions ready for the longer hike as well. Moveable feasts.
An adventure without a few beers or a glass of wine? We didn't think so. Our selection of import beers is the best in Livingston, and they are ready for your adventure. Our wines range from specialty bottles vinted in places like France and New Zealand, to delicious and easy to pack cans made in Oregon and boxed wines. Oh yeah - we also have a variety of excellent hard cider. Yes, it's a lot easier on the hike out. Our locally roasted Adventure Blend Coffee is perfect for the morning after.
Equipment that you want. We don't want you to be without great equipment to cook your food. Cast iron to provide flavor over a campfire. Books to read with your headlamp. A tarp to keep you dry and a bag to keep you warm. We have a wonderful selection of just the right stuff you need or might have forgotten.
Wonderful gifts to remind you of your home or where you visit. We have worked with great friends to design t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and beer mugs - that express your love of the greatest place - Montana.
Kiddos are welcome to play and run around the store. We love seeing the excitement of the new adventurer. Our Kids Camp has a selection of games and equipment just their size and will make them excited about venturing into the wilderness.
We are here to supply your next adventure provisions at the Jumping Off Point. Livingston MT.
Owners Dan & Mayana Rice opened Jumping Off Point for the love of camping. They have lived in other adventurous places such as Ely, MN, and Wyoming, and moved to Livingston because this is the quintessential area to enjoy the great outdoors.
Dan previously worked as a Hydrologist for the USGS until he resigned from that position to spend a year living alone out of a tent deep in the forests of northern Minnesota. Here he wrote two books (THIS SIDE OF A WILDERNESS, and THE UNPEOPLED SEASON). His first business venture was a drywall installation outfit in his early twenties. He is also the owner of Riverfeet Press, and founder of Big River Scoop.
Mayana is a Soil & Water Scientist who has spent fifteen years as a City Planner in places like Casper, WY, Bemidji, MN, and Bozeman, MT. She is now the proud owner and baker at Farmgirl Pizzeria & Bakery, where she makes everything from delicious pastries to fresh pizza by the slice.
