only if it has a designated porch downstairs from the porch with its own porch. ; ) denim couches are a plus.

Well unless you throw in a little stream flowing nearby I don't think we'll mange to agree on what a perfect vacation spot would be.

Went dispersed camping a bit ago (DC is camping in National Forests, BLM, etc for free) and you're on your own the entire time without any amenities. I was getting ready for the night when a bear peaked out of the trees and started wandering around my site. I grabbed my dog and jumped into my car (and clicked the "lock door" button 20 extra times just in case) then had to peak out my window while I saw the bear approach my car, walk around it, then HIT MY CAR WITH HIS PAW AND BODY) and then walk away. I have yet to completely settle down from that experience.

Magical baby Jesus that's terrifying.

See my previous comment, but to add to that...

That's a bear's house. Stop going in their house. Respect their (probably endangered idk) asses. It's almost like going into a muscle-bound, well armed psycho's house and just hoping he's not coming home soon. Or maybe it's more like swimming with sharks.

To be clear that's not at you specifically, just what comes to mind when people go camping. I'm baffled as to how a meatbag could possibly enjoy hanging out in a bear's pantry.

black bears are fairly benign though so long as you aren't in the way of their cubs. they're lopey scavengers and would rather lazily eat your garbage. i'm way more off put by snakes. snakes aren't bad, but they'll crawl up in your shiz.

I loved this episode, I spend hours watching bear videos on YouTube. Chuckling away.

Chemda perfectly describes the period anxiety that occurs every month (ignoring the hormonal chaos that occurs between bleeding)

I was supposed to be going camping this weekend for a long weekend but Iíve cancelled it because itís raining for the next four days. Iím too old for wet camping now and my body can no longer metabolise the amount of alcohol required to make it through the experience.
