Camping in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest this weekend was absolutely amazing. I learned a few things about myself, but the most interesting one is that I want to go camping alone. I’m going to make that happen. I need to do some prep and get a few more pieces of gear, but mostly it’s going to be a matter of being brave. It’s scary at night, plain and simple. 

I decided this weekend that I really need to simplify my shit, too. I have too much stuff even for car camping. So I’ll be winnowing and streamlining.

That’s me on the right in the bottom picture. It was a ginger selfie with my friend Erin. Her hair looked beautiful all weekend; mine looked like something nested in it. Ha. (My hair is as long as hers, but it was so wild, I had it up and back most of the time.)

PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID TODAY. The internet is just overflowing with absolute morons this afternoon.
