A new PR for my overnight camping lifestyle: Minus 10 degrees

DONATING TO A NONPROFIT IS NOT THE SAME AS HELPING THE HOMELESS!

By Max R. Weller

(That’s Personal Record, for all those who don’t have a friend who is an avid distance runner.)

This is the official LOW temp for yesterday morning, 12/18/2016, reported in today’s print edition of the Daily Camera newspaper here in Boulder, CO.

I’d like to thank all of Boulder’s nonprofit do-gooders who make their “homeless shelters” intolerable for any sober, rational person . . . And I should also note all those here in this wealthy white enclave opposed to the Tiny House concept, who have kept me outside while more progressive cities are embracing it.

As for the doubters — including a few of my friends who should have known better — I will resist the temptation to say, “I told you so!”

No polar bears at my campsite, and I heard only a single lonely owl overnight as the mercury dropped. I’m guessing that other living creatures crawled into their burrows just like I did.
