I was wandering aimlessly around Mount Rainier and I came across this sign. It took me quite some time to name it because I was busy pondering what method I would prefer to kill me while camping.

Even The Wildlife Don’t Camp Here.

A warning sign that says " Camp at your own risk. This area is subject to sudden and severe geological hazards such as: flooding, mud flows, debris flows and rock fall."

“Woohoo, sign me up!” Said with all the sarcasm my body is able to produce.

This sign is located just mere feet from the Run From the Volcano As Fast As You Can sign. It’s not even like the park rangers ask you to refrain from camping here – it’s the official camping site of this area of the park!

They are practically daring you to die.

I saw other campsites in the park and none of them had a sign like this. I don’t know what would posses you to camp near this sign when there are other areas not actively trying to kill you. I do know that the survival of our species relies on people doing it – get rid of some of the stupid in our gene pool.

I really want to meet someone who has camped here. They must be made of nerves of steel if they can calmly make a S’more while death looms all around them.

I will be miles away in my RV, at a wonderful campground with electricity, plumbing and a television to give me immediate forewarning that the seismic activity is spiking in the area.

I’m ready for a S’more.
