    Default Against the Advise of The Powers That Be

    Tomorrow morning I step off for my journey to the wilderness. It is spring break and I have been waiting for the weather to cooperate and it has given me a two day window of sunshine that I must take advantage of. There is only one problem. It is supposed to be in the 20s each night that I am gone. If something happens to me while I am gone (eaten by a bear, hypothermia, or I get lost and starve) I donate all my uke stuff to UU to have contests to give the ukes away except for my wife's pick that she gets to keep. Ladies and gentlemen it is cold out there and it is harsh in the elements but when a man must embark on a journey to answer the call of the wild he must go. I am taking essentials only (ukulele and camera) and am leaving non essentials behind (sleeping bag and stove). Wish me well fellow UUers and hopefully I'll have some good footage to put up, unless I become dinner.

    Brrrrr... I know what you mean, it got down into the low 70s last night, had to grab a bed sheet to keep warm. Still woke up in a cold sweat though.

    I'd add a .357 magnum to the essentials. If not, I hope your tree climbing skills are honed. Good luck and have fun. We'll see you (maybe?) when you get back. Ric

    Safe travels! When I answer the call of nature, its usually just down the hall, first door on the right.

    Hahaha yopp.

    I thought I was the only one who went out into the wilderness overnight anymore. If I'm still single this summer I plan to do it every weekend. Have fun man!

    The real question is what kind of uke are you taking?

    Best of luck! Don't get eaten!

    Do you know how to tell the difference between black bear and grizzly bear poop?
    Black bear poop is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur.
    Grizzly bear poop has little bells in it and smells like pepper spray.
