Wintercamping!! Camping in the winter. Cold weather camping.
In just a couple days the Band of Brethren will assemble for the annual rite of insanity known as Wintercamping. I could tell you all kinds of secrets, but why? The first rule and only universal man-law is what happens in the (woods) stays in the (woods). Las Vegas stole that phrase from the man-law rule book.
I can share that it is a three day thing. I can share that it is in the winter. I can share that it is only guys....I cannot tell you particular events as I am beholden to a higher law....Man-law...
I will share this. It is fun. It is cold. Sometimes it is really cold. Sometimes it snows. Sometimes it rains. Rain sucks, but there are no bugs. And you don’t get sunburned. The beer stays cold and wine can freeze…. It is cold and there are no mosquitoes here.
I can also tell you this. Ice-cream sandwiches do not stay frozen unless they are stored at less than 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Actually ice-cream needs to be stored at zero degrees. They still taste yummy, but they are more work when they are mooshie….
Some guys sleep in tents. I sleep in my truck. Setting up a tent is work, and I can work any time…
I can also let you in on this. It is cold. Oh yeah, I already said that. See how cold it is? I get brain freeze just thinking about it. Brrrrrrrr…See this happens during winter, hence the name Wintercamping. And most of the time it snows. One year the Grand Rapids Press front page was titled, “Please stay Home” so we went anyway. They ain’t the boss of me…A massive blizzard is not going to stop us.
The Band of Brethren will gather. We will camp. We will dominate nature. We will be cold. Or maybe not. We will survive. We will have FUN. Much will happen, but nothing will happen, because what happens in the woods stays in the woods…
I COULD tell you what goes on at Wintercamping, but then I would have to kill you….
Just another day in paradise
