  1. 13. Freakiest animals was in Banff, Alberta. With my ex we woke up find and entire herd of elk had invaded the campground, there were dozens of them everywhere. And when I was a kid with my parents, same place, we woke up to find a small bear rifling through our camping gear.

    1. If you’re going to start the precedent of actually answering the questions, Tam, then there are a lot of previous surveys people may want to start knowing the details about, too 😉

      1. It was kind of awesome. My mom chased the bear away with a lawn dart hoop. My Dad sat in the car screaming “get in the car”. Oh, good times.

  2. 4. I don’t DO camping. Only went one time where I got three of my four points. The pooping outside thing happened at a differnet non-camping time.


    1. 7, if you replace “been awoken by wild animals outside your tent while camping” with “been chased by an alligator while in a boat while camping.”

  3. 16, thanks to involvement with scouts as a youth. The only provocative “yes” answers involve substance abuse.

  4. Ya know, if I had been able to go camping with the guy in the middle picture I’m certain I’d have done a LOT more camping in the past.


      1. My Broke-back Mountain was a lake in the North East. It was the kind of sex that felt so good in the moment, but left us feeling confused afterward, being two homophobic young men at the time of our dalliances.

        It was always a bit like a common gay porn fantasy, where the hot popular frat-boy jock hooks up with the shy introverted loner. It was fun, but our happiness was only ever momentary.

        My score would have been higher, but I don’t think you can form a circle with only two people. 😉
