It never occurred to me until I left the outdoor adventure industry that it’s actually pretty weird to sleep next to your coworkers. But it was all part of the intensity of a crazy ass job and it was one of the many perks. I really miss that level of platonic intimacy I so easily had with my guy friends back then. Now I gotta go on fucking tinder to sleep in close proximity to a man and talk and laugh until we both pass out. I think sometimes that’s actually what I’m looking for more than a hookup anyways. Kinda fucked up but true!
