I’m off for three days of gay gay gay camping in the Poconos at Hillside Campground with Aaron, Chris, and the Thruple. It happens to be their “Hog Ranch” weekend, a prospect which would have thrilled me ten years ago, but today makes me rather apprehensive. Strange. As my back has been wrecked for several days, I’m planning on parking myself under the trees, beer cooler within reach. By the way, Thermacare heat wraps? Magical. I have no idea what mysterious force powers those suckers, the one I opened 14 hours ago is still hot. Weather in the mountains is forecast to be rather cool this weekend, lows in the 40’s. A perfect antidote for this baking cavern of concrete called Manhattan. Have a great weekend, y’all.
