Again the 40 hour work week sucks in such a big way. We do the best we can to battle the propaganda-america-is-great bullshit in every way we can. One way is to make a simple weekend seem like a big holiday. Adventure right after work on a Friday and just not show up for work on Monday citing sickness or mishap. And then take sick days to keep ourselves from hanging ourselves. Right? By the time you show up to pretend to be doing something it seems like coming off of a big holiday. Or in other countries a simple time off.
We left work and went right to the trail and proceeded to climb over a thousand feet into the wilds before giving up the ghost to plop down a camp. The sun set over Lone Peak and we enjoyed a little hot dinner. A quick food hang over a pile of griz shit and we were off to our new tent to break it in.
