My weekend began with a phonecall from Caleb. "We're going camping, wanna come?"

Camping? Camping. Of course. A tent, sleeping bag, campfire, hot dogs. Camping.

I loaded my supplies into the '73 two tone brown van with shag carpet alongside three skinheads, a camp counseloresque wilderness girl, a hippie, a singer/songwriter and a civil engineer.

My camping supplies? 3 pairs of short shorts, various wifebeaters, a hoodie, a Friday the 13th Tshirt (irony anyone?), a bikini, a makeup/medication emergency kit and a bottle of Early Times whiskey.

My idea of camping is a spot in the woods, you pay for it, it's cleared out, there's some form of running water, there's an outlet, there's perhaps a toilet within a mile. Their idea of camping includes climbing a mountian in the rain, chopping down brush with machetes and seriously roughing it.

were you in columbia today? i saw a girl that looked like you and made a mental note to ask, and quite frankly, i'm just surprised that i remembered.

ps, are these nazi skinheads or non-nazi skinheads?

I was in NC at the base of a mountian and on the edge of hell.

Non-nazi skinheads. They're SHARPs (Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice). Good people.

word the fuck up about the last part.

there was an aryan nations gathering in lexington this weekend at lake murray and a bunch of us formed an anti-fascist group and we basically needed everyone we could get. which is why i asked. too late now. in september there is another one in laurens and then one in laurens in october. we'll be a little better prepared for the next two.
