Cold & Wet
All pics from http://wildoutdoormen.tumblr.com/
Three fellow chaperones and I just returned from our annual winter camping trip with a group of twenty-eight 16 and 17 year olds. I had just started my blog when I mentioned last year`s trip.
Wow! What a year it`s been! Things are looking infinitely better in terms of my happiness, finances and my gay growth, sexual and otherwise.
The main difference this year is that the "winter" was completely absent from our winter camping trip. Most of the snow was gone; we've experienced the mildest winter since weather records have been kept.
Gone were all the usual activities such as cross-country skiing, sledding, snowshoeing and hiking on the frozen lake. These were replaced with fog, drizzle and cold, cold rain.
The teenagers were fantastic! They really seemed to have a great time despite the crappy weather. The boys in particular got into the spirit of thing and cooked (and ate) vast meals over the campfire; pots of chili, hamburgers, steak-and-eggs for breakfast .....
My ideal man is the rugged, outdoorsy type, preferably furry and masculine..... a man who gets his (natural) muscles from chopping firewood rather than working out in the gym. Here in the north woods, there are a great many men who fit this description.
My cold and wet camping experience would have been much improved if I'd have shared a sleeping bag with one of these hotties. Sadly, none were to be seen.
