Camping in December? You bet!

Hello folks, Bear Grylls here. Just kidding, it’s just me Ryan.

Actually, I’m gearing up for a camping trip this weekend. Yes, you heard me right, I’m heading out in a couple of hours to hit the wilderness in the middle of December, in the middle of Kansas. This last month has been a ruckus for me personally, so I need some quiet nature time to myself.

I’m loading up our company deuce and a half with survival gear and a heater 😉

It’s due to be in the 20’s overnight but I feel like I’m ready for it. I’m heading out with our Shipping Manager, Lennie and we’re going to rough it for a few days. It’s little known but I’m a pretty big outdoor enthusiast and I like to be outside. I try to go camping several times every year and I have plans to hike in Peru soon. In fact, did you know that I scaled Mount Everest? Here’s a shot of me on Everest last year:

It was a nice enough day that I thought a short sleeve shirt was appropriate. It’s not as high as I thought, it took me about 4 minutes to get to the top after I stopped for some s’mores! OK, I know it’s corny, but sometimes life is just too serious for me. I’m trying to make you smile! Did it work?

Well, I need to get my checklist out and I promise to take a few pictures of this weekend – I’ll share them with you next week.

Take care, Ryan
