The Great Outdoors (#137)

The Great Outdoors (#137)

It’s been a bit of a week, as it often is, and Xeres and I decided that we needed to get away from it all, for a while. With that in mind, we decided to venture out into The Great Outdoors, where we set up camp, make some food, go for a hike, explore, make a little music, lament a painful tooth, and try to have a little fun in a much less urban environment.

We arrive at Big Rock Candy Mountain, a fantastic campground with a number of odd features, including a creek near an ocean beach with lots of hiking in tropical and pine forests. Occasional guests wander in, we read some poetry and short stories, offer some PSAs about camping, and we have our Short Wave Radio to tune in music and The Weather Computer.

It’s The Great Outdoors. Sit around the campfire, and stay a spell.

Enjoy!
