It's huckleberry season! If you don't know what they are or have never tasted one then 1) you have probably not been in Montana for long and 2) you certainly are missing out on the most fucking delicious little piece of fruit this green earth has to offer. The window of opportunity is fairly brief - they're only here once a year, and by my estimation this weekend will be near the climax of ripeness (around here anyway). This is a truly therapeutic and soul-building experience, get out into your local woodlands, experience the plant life and wildlife and fresh air and the exquisite flavors your regional ecology has to offer.

Just to clarify: Yes, I am proposing a date! For this upcoming saturday and/or sunday, the 2nd/3rd of August. I already have an AMAZING spot picked out, a veritable sea of plump, juicy huckleberries, in the high elevations south of my homestead. Sadly I can't come to to pick you up. A bucket of huckleberries always comes at a price - you've got to get yourself out here (~45 miles outside of Missoula). If you come out on Saturday, and you're into the outdoors experience thing, I encourage you to stay and camp Saturday night, either here at base camp or out in the woods, whatever you're down for. Stick around for dinner and you will be treated to one of the finest meals to have ever been cooked for you. It's possible that my first ever batches of wildcrafted mead will even be ready for consumption by then...

You can find out all about me by visiting my okcupid profile:

So uh, yeah! Of course I'd like to know some things about you as well, don't be shy. Drop me a personal mooseage. Let's get some sweet delicious huckleberries!

This sounds like a fabulous date idea! I never got to pick huckleberries while I was living in Montana. One day. One day. I did pick lots of choke cherries though, made lots of jam with those babies. Yum. Anyway, good luck finding someone! I bet it won't be that hard with a proposal like this.

By the way, I can vouch for Justin! He's an awesome guy and you'd have a fantastic time!
Doody calls. I would really rather that it didn't. Comfort me wise and sterile tiny ad:
