God, I love these stories. When an arrogant ass goes on and on about something and then a hidden expert quietly demolishes them in front of everyone, it’s a magical thing.

One of my favorite memories was back in Colorado. I was in peak form, with many, many mountain summits and solo backcountry hikes under my belt but I was a young chick with long blonde hair and I guess that’s all a lotta men need to know.

“I started walking in the wilderness…Next thing I know, I like to walk. So I call it meditative walking versus I-gotta-be-in-the-Olympics or get-back-to-my-original-weight-of-eight-pounds-fifteen-ounces.”

Ding Darling’s classic cartoon “Look out! Here come the nature lovers” illustrates why I’m actually loving this quarantine. Give nature a fuckin’ rest, you miscreants. I guarantee staying at home will preserve more than just YOUR health.

They call him the Bob Ross of bushcraft

by allthoughtswork

In actuality, Andrew Davidson is a carpenter with a degree in filmography who posts his short UK leave-no-trace camping adventures in a series of soothing wilderness videos.

Soft spoken and genial, he uses calming background music and most of his footage is stable rather than bouncing along at the end of a selfie stick. (thank god)

Oregon Wolf Packs

This is how I determine where I will NOT be hiking. As a woman who travels light and solo I have to be careful of wolves–whether they’re hairy, dangerous beasts stalking me in the night or the four-legged kind.

They spotted four new pups this year¬†close to, but thankfully out of, my hiking jurisdiction. Yeah, yeah, yeah, they’re good for the environment…manage wildlife…deer control…chewing on my leg…scared of humans…ruptured artery…lovely howls in the night…dismemberment…..

I’ll stick to whale watching, thanks.
