Me, at “wildlife preserves”

by allthoughtswork



No, wildlife preserves aren’t jam made of squirrels. They’re protected lands set aside for nature to be nature and you must stay on the trails. Or so I thought.

Apparently, the rules have changed: Now people can be complete assholes and do pretty much whatever they want out there and the rangers on duty just shrug and say, “Well, maybe it’ll be a learning experience for them.”

I’ll give you a learning experience, you little prick, now stop your kid from picking wildflowers and chasing geese off their nests or I’ll show you how survival of the fittest works in the Oregon backcountry.

A bottle of absinthe tucked away in the woods.

Absinthe is how the Swiss get you out in nature…and then forget you were ever there.

Not a happy camper

by allthoughtswork

When I was in my twenties, waking up early to bacon over a camp fire was awesome. Now, hot showers and clean sheets are awesome. Evolution.
