    So the Clay Pit thread should be viewed on par with all the niceties and good manners of the Bear Pit!
    Seems a bit harsh on the Bear Pit!

    I'd like ride my horse through the high plains and camp by the lake shore, if it's not too much to ask. My family has lived in the high country for months, and as such we know about heritage.

    More like anyone who lives within a 1000 mile radius and/or claims it as their spiritual homeland despite never actually spending time there.

    Just to give it the vibe

    Don't be a sheeple! They are trying to close society down, and keep you in your houses, so you don't see the 5G receptors they are fitting to all the cow anus's, which will be activated after they inject everyone with a "vaccine" and turn you all into mindless zombies! You cant trust the media! You can only trust a nutmeg on the internet, that me, your messiah!

    I shower with scented baby wipes when I’m camping. I give my feet, underarms and crouch a scrub with them after a hard days skiing. It seems to do the trick, although I’m on my own so no one to tell me otherwise.

    Plus the outsiders abused the privilege.
    The joint used to be trashed overnight.
    The van park nuked all the old codes people used to use.

    As I gaze upon the distant shore, high upon my lofty perch, gently caressed by clear showering waters sourced from the sky and warmed by the sun, below sits the brightly lit encampment of the people known as Jindabinians.

    Their lot is not an easy one so gaze upon I do, occasionally visited by hardy campers from the Northlands who regale us with tales of great cities with a harried tone.

    There is unrest in the peasant camp, they appear to be scattering to points unknown.

    Come the Spring a great calm will once again descend.

    Such is life in these wind swept hills and tussock covered valleys.

    You may even see an emu in an occasional moment of serenity.
