And their families… And their real dogs…
The trip to Joshua Tree was the balls. There’s something about being out in nature
even in a controlled environment like a campground that just feels right. Look, I’ll be the first to admit if you drop me off in the middle of nowhere I’m probably going to die. I’m pretty domesticated which is just the way the cookie has crumbled in my life. Roy, on the other hand, being alone in the woods, that’s a Tuesday for him. Thankfully, I’ve learned how to be bad ass at other things. You know who else was bad ass, but not very good at survival? This guy… So I don’t feel so bad.
Anyways, I decided to put together a list of reasons why camping is totally awesome and why I will be doing it a lot more.
Reason #1: Snuggling… Naked…
The above pic is probably what your general snuggling situation looks like. Well, not while camping! A lot of times it gets cold as a witch’s titty at night. The best way to combat this situation is to make your woman get naked and stay that way all night with you. WIN!
Reason #2: Fire
Fire is awesome. Need I say more? Fire is awesome. You know what else is awesome? Yep. Fire.
Reason #3: Hiking / Climbing / Feeling like Conan the Barbarian
I don’t know… Maybe it’s just me, but every time I climb to the top of something I feel like I just murdered an army of assholes that tried to slaughter a peaceful village. Then, I usually feel the urge to climb back down so I don’t fall and break my neck.
Reason #4: BOOZE!
Everyone likes it! It keeps you warm. You don’t have to drive anywhere. There’s a fire to look at it. What else can you ask for?
Reason #5: Journey
Epic music. There are few bands like Journey who truly put out so many epic songs and albums. You don’t even have to make a play list called “Camping Trip 2013″ because that’d be
gay lame. You just click play and let the good times roll. Other suggestions include; Kings of Leon, Eric Church (less his terrible new album) and William Elliot Whitmore.
Reason #6: Nature… Goulet
I was woken up Sunday morning by a group of Coyote’s howling. Literally that was my alarm clock as the sun came up. A group of coyotes had just gone RAGE MODE on some lesser being and were celebrating. If that’s not epic I don’t know what is.
So, that’s it. My top six reasons to get your butt outside and do a little camping. Are there other awesome things that could have made the list? Sure. I mean, you get to pee outside for one, but I can’t share with you all the little nuggets of gold. You’ll just have to find out for yourself.
Until next time, train hard, go rage mode on something and make it happen!
Over and out.
