Cold & Wet

All pics from

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.


  1. It IS so different the voice in your posts from a year ago and now. A very good difference. I am looking forward to that stage myself. Counting down to Friday when I move into my new apartment. I have gone from Aprehension to downright giddy in less than 48 hours. 2 in a sleeping bag huh? Have to say it has been years since I did that. Would you have been comfortable with the teens around?

  2. Hi skier: best of luck with your exciting journey. There will be many ups and downs in the year to come. But I do remember very clearly the giddiness when I no longer had to hide who I really was. I think that living a life of truth will make it all worth while in the end.

    As to hooking up with the teens around, the answer would be a resounding "NO!!!" If caught, it would have been grounds for dismissal. At the camping site, however, there was only one staff member on duty who was darn cute. If he would have paid me a late night visit, I'd have had a tough time saying "no" to him.

  3. OMG, I didn't mean to suggest you would have hooked up with a TEEN. I think I "know" you better than that! I was referring to if you had a friend with you helping with chaperone duties. I am sure it will be worth it. At least on an intellectual level. On an emotional level. I have to keep reminding myself. Thank goodness for Sean. He sends me constant reminders.
    Hey Sean, if you read this, I am trying to figure way to come see you when our mutual friend is headed your way. Wish me luck

    1. Skier: no, I didn't think for a second that you meant a teen. I meant that I would never hook up with an adult while I was "on the job", chaperoning teenagers. We'd have been interrupted for sure and that story would have spread everywhere!

  4. There is a gay clothing optional camp ground a couple of hours outside Toronto near Lake Erie - or so I'm told. If you are ever in Ontario you should give it a try!

  5. I bet you won't guess which muscle in your body is the muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and burns fat.

    If this "hidden" super powerful primal muscle is healthy, you are healthy.


Please tell me what you're thinking!
