To Camp or not to Camp….there’s really no question!

  I camp…just sayin. People be like “Yo, do you camp?” and I be like “PFFT!…do I camp?” Before July 25th, I couldn’t say any of that. Before July 25th…I’d be like “no.” ūüôā¬†Here’s how that changed: You’d think that a guy that grew up in Alaska (19 years) of all places would have went […]
