I’ve been hiking and camping religiously since I was a boy scout in the northern midwest.
All of us ventured into the woods regardless of the temperatures outside.
It gave me a rugged temperament and taught me vital survival skills that I no doubt will carry with me for the rest of my life. When you learn how to create a shelter in the middle of a snow storm, it gives you a sense of self-sufficiency that is hard to find someplace else. By the time I reached high school, I was going out on solo camping trips and surviving with just my backpack and tent for afternoons at a time. I decided to attend CA Lutheran University after I was rejected by the University of CA Los Angeles, or UCLA. I’m blissful because CA Lutheran University is a fantastic liberal arts university and isn’t a religion-heavy school enjoy the title would suggest. It’s considered the “cradle of the coaches” because of the silly number of successful professional and university sports coaches that were all taught at this school while in their undergraduate jobs. I started hiking and camping in the Santa Monica Mountains instantaneously after moving to ThoUnited Statesnd Oaks for university. One of my favorite locales in the Santa Monica Mountains is Point Mugu State Park. Unless you drive into the mountains from Westlake Blvd, you can hike from Hidden Valley as well. I always brought cannabis pre-rolled joints with me on my hiking trips as I’m not a drinker. I care about experiencing cannabis in the wilderness, especially in a locale as elegant as the Santa Monica Mountains and Point Mugu State Park.
