We’re heading out. Today’s the last day of mud season, so tomorrow we get to ride! :boogie:
Because I always forget how to pack over the course of the winter, I’m currently running around like a starving racoon chasing a hot dog on a string, so I’m reposting a list I did from last summer.
A few things women need to know about four-wheeling:
* Make sure your personal grooming has been meticulously attended to before hitting the trails. Tick check is significantly more humiliating if you look like youâ€™ve been drinking gorilla milk.
* Pay special attention to that upper lip and eyebrows. Trail dust clings to even the finest of hairs, and you do not want to arrive back at campâ€”or at a trailside restaurantâ€”with an Adolph â€™stache and a unibrow. Trust me.
* Pack an empty cup with your gear. It is almost impossible to hang your ass over a log without encountering suspect foliage, even more suspect insects or pissing all over yourself. But any woman can pee in a cup. Of course, you then have to stand around wondering what the hell to do with the cup.
* At some pointâ€”generally when facing a large amount of water or mudâ€”the guys will say â€œladies firstâ€. This is not an act of chivalry.
* Itâ€™s natural to be a little paranoid about being in the forest with starving wild animals during those days of the month, but take comfort in knowing thatâ€”in your current moodâ€”youâ€™d scare the crap out of anything smaller than a full-grown rabid Kodiak anyway.
* Four words: Really. Good. Sports. Bra.
