The week before I headed up north to nearly Canada to visit that hunk of a boyfriend of mine, he and his bestie went out to the national forest and went shooting & mudding. Typical Montana style guy fun. Since then, we'd been planning to go when I was there. So like the first day I was there we headed to DJs favorite store ever, Scheels, to buy him a brand new shotgun. He's like a kid in a candy store in there, I swear! I did find a pink 9mm that I might have to get eventually, but really I was just there for moral support. So we took his brand new scary looking gun home, got some hotdogs and the heavenly ingredients that make up s'mores and packed the truck to head out the next morning.
We woke up EARLY (and by early I mean 7 am) and hopped in the truck. The truck we had just washed the day before- hint: it didnt stay clean for very long. The national forest is about an hour away, right past Monarch where we almost got stranded last time.
When we got out there, it was COLD. Like really cold and windy. Luckily I had my trusty pink North Face to keep me a little warm. We hit some mud on the way there which was so fun. We started shooting at cans and bottles and I'm basically a pro. A pro at not hitting anything. I did destroy this Sprite can, though.
Then we decided it was time for some hotdogs. We tried to light a fire but the wind kept putting it out before it was big enough. So we tried again. And again. And again. No luck. We ended up shooting off the rest of our rounds and taking some gangsta pictures before we headed to another spot.
We hit some more mud and show and it was seriously so fun. Dj's whole truck was falling apart though- the dashboard is broken and pieces we're flying everywhere, the visor above my head kept falling and hitting me, my coffee kept spilling, but yolo it was so fun. We also got stuck a few times.
At one of the spots we stopped to "play" in the muddy snow, Dj let me drive. We'd been doing donuts and going crazy in that spot for a good half hour, and I figured it couldn't be too hard. Well, I drove about ten feet and we were stuck. So that was fun. Once we got pulled out of that, we stopped at a few more places and kept trying to light fires, but the wind was so bad everywhere we went. So Dj and I made s'mores without the marshmallow- basically a chocolate and graham cracker sandwich. Oh and I polished off a whole bag of hot Cheetos. Typical. We had smores for breakfast Tuesday though, so it's okay.
In all, it was a good day. Even though we didn't get to roast hotdogs or marshmallows, I almost froze to death, and I had to pee outside, it was still fun. I'm so excited to head back out there this summer when it's not so cold and a little more green! :)
Do you like the outdoors? Or are you more of an indoorsy person?
