Let the good times roll
Hafiz and I bumped into a bunch of our outdoor instructor friends a few nights ago and it made me realize just how much I have missed being around the outdoor people. The vibe is totally different as compared to hanging out with any other bunch of friends. Outdoor instructors have thick skins, they couldn't care less about what others think, they make every awkward situation comfortable and honestly, they are the most reasonable people on Earth because technically - we get paid to reason out with kids and we instill soft skills that cannot be taught through books - so somehow or rather those soft skills get instilled into us as well. Best of all, we always seem to have fun no matter what we do. It's really rare to find friends who you can still get along with, despite not meeting for almost a year. I'm lucky to have met this bunch during my years of serving the outdoors.
