Does anyone go camping?

- Β

This weekend a group of friends and I are going on our annual camping trip. It's called "Mountain Gnar Weekend." This is the 14th edition of "MGW."

Our campground is in TN. It's about a 7hr drive for me. Some people go kayaking or white water rafting on the Ocoee. Others go mountain biking or fishing.Β 

If it's your first year, you're a 'prospect'. You receive an official nickname on Saturday night after a group dinner and after the band plays. Then on your second year, you come back as a 'Warhorse." We have 44 people total coming this year.

If you fall out of a raft or kayak on the river and have to 'swim', you have to drink a booty beer out of your shoe Saturday night after the band.

Lots of these people I only see once per year so it is good to catch up and have a few drinks around the campfire.

You don't think that's gross?

Yeah I think it's disgusting.

That sounds like a lot of fun. Coincidentally I went camping this past weekend, was a lot of fun. Got to shoot some interesting firearms which was a blast, no pun intended.

Sounds fun. Yeah it's good to get out of the city every now and then.

It was also a lot less humid where we went compared to the city, that alone was almost the best part of it all.

are you even in finance bro?Β  (I'm kidding, this looks like a lot of fun)

March for the fallen is the best.Β https://alphaarchitect.com/mftf/Β  I'm trying to make the 5 boro an asset management thing, but only got Cerulli's AM guy to join last year.

The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

I like to do backpacking. I enjoy disassociating from civilization for a few days and really hone in on myself and nature, it helps me focus and come back to work rejuvenated and with better perspective

Really enjoy backpacking. Something about being totally self-sufficient with everything you need to survive on your back...

I try to enjoy car camping, but it just doesn't do it for me.

Camping was a success. Was nice to get outdoors all day for the weekend.

Every summer I go camping with my students. I think it's the best decision I've ever come up with as a teacher. Camping is the most reasonable way to become closer to your students. A friend in need is a friend indeed. Once, we had no lights. Literally nothing. Somehow one of my students managed to find a flashlight for us. I'll always remember this Fl. Here it is https://www.amazon.com/Vont-Flashlight-Flashlights-Water-Resistant-Accessories/dp/B089T8HDBV. John was a real hero then. Especially for girls because they were really scared of the darkness. That's how we do it. I guess we have so many camping photos that we should create an Instagram page. What do you think?
