A Brief Getaway From The Everyday Hustle

Or so we thought.

The Inn of the Four Winds is quaint. Directly overlooking the beach with lovely vistas.

And there's a condo that's being built right next door. We didn't think about it too much... until this morning..

Bang! Bang! Clang! Clang! Whrrrrrr.

Oh, you're kidding me.



  1. What a fine get-away. I've had the same thing happen to me, it sucks.

    Up here camping is the worst in the summer for that, you get away from it all, resting out in the open and looking forward to a nice sleep in...and the FUCKING TOURISTS FROM THE EAST COAST GET UP AT 2 AM BECAUSE IT'S LIGHT OUT AND THEY REFUSE TO CHANGE TIME ZONES!

    I hate those bastards, with their little dogs, noisy children, and deisel campers. They get up and act like it's 9 am and time to make the pancake breakfast just because that's the time zone they're used to, they feel no need to change (because of our 24 hour sunlight) and don't seem to understand that the rest of the world doesn't live in New York and just vacation here in Alaska.

    On top of all that, they bitch when you're setting up your camp at 6 pm because they're trying to sleep. They need to be ganked.

  2. I think that's the first time I've seen Q genuinely pissed off!

  3. Up here camping is the worst in the summer for that, you get away from it all
    That is not camping you noob. If there is another camp site within 1 mile of you, and you didnt hike/canoe at least 3 miles to get to it, and carry the canoe on your shoulders at least 100 yards, then it is not camping!

    That is some sorry west coaster who doesn't know what the wilderness is!

  4. That experience was mostly when I was growing up, my last camping experience was actually pretty good.

    We went diving all day, then the boat dropped us on a god forsaken sandbar island covered in beach grass during a downpour with 45 mile per hour gusts.

    I got to set up my bivy bag under a tarp on the lee of a hill and listen to the wind and rain blast all night while I was warm, dry, and comfy with a book and a nice sleeping bag.

    I grant you, the set up in the wind and rain kind of sucked, but once I was under shelter and comfortable it was really nice, very nature-esque sounding and feeling and pretty much all alone.

  5. See?? See?? I told you guys! You should have come up here and run the triathlon with me! We just got back, I don't know my time (but it will be posted tomorrow, I think), but I'm feeling great!

    Seriously, I'm sorry your weekend get-away turned out so poorly; it sounded like such a great place! Maybe next year....

  6. I don't know where else to post this, so... Funny site!

  7. Wow, Q threw a hissy fit.



    I'm at a loss.
