Today we are going to compare public lands with dudes* on tinder. Just let it happen to you.

National parks are that good looking, sleek, kinda famous dude you recognize from the internet. You KNOW you’re going to have a good time. And you do. If you sleep over, you even marvel at how many cool amenities & luxuries there are that you can use. You probably get a little sweaty + dirty, but that’s why you’re there.
But then you realize how many other people get entertained by this one dude. Your time was still special & intimate, but it seems like a revolving door. A lot of people want this dude…& the dude abides.
That’s amazing & you will always love & Support National Parks. But you’re looking for something more exclusive.
Enter National Forest. A bit rougher around the edges, & way more wild. The type of rugged or quirky good looks that become increasingly sexy with time. This dude is not as quick to let you in (& the journey can be bumpy, with a lot of routes completely shut down), but once you’re in, you’re embraced completely, with few (if any) others competing for attention. You fall deeply in love.
You must know MORE about this enchanting, elusive stranger…history, current issues, & how to support this amazing dude. You realize it’s way less easy to find info on NF than there is on NPs. 😫
Luckily, this dude's parents created a podcast. And they were smart enough to make it binge-worthy: @out.land.ish_podcast is like getting interesting stories from friends & relatives of a dude so you don't need to waste your time cyber-stalking.
It's from @yourforestsyourfuture (which is legit), & it's kind of like if @she_explores & the @outside podcast had a baby. You'll learn stuff you'll put to use, and you won't get bored learning it. Season 3 dropped today.
