I finally did it

I work at the Livingston warehouse as a lab assistant.And i usually walk to work.And when I do I pass by the "Protected Ecological Preserve" that occupies a big portion of the Livingston campus and I have always wanted to venture out to those trees.they just look so inviting,kinda like in the movies.Call of the Wild, if you will..[:)]...
So last Sunday, when i realized that my work had to be prematurely stopped, due to a malfunctioning Rotary agitator, ( I was glad i got off work soon)...I decided to see how the woods look from the other side.And it was amazing, If you close your eyes you , hear nothing, except the slow whistling of the tiny stream that runs through it.it was stupid going there alone, It was wrong by every horror movie's standards.This is the Blair witch project.This is the beginning of every zombie movie.Just replace the dumb blond, with a great body with a fat guy with a great body...
And i was thinking of turning back when i ran across some shrubs which refuse to let me pass, but i found a path next to the stream..My plan was to circle around back to the warehouse road,so that I would have taken a semi circular path through the woods.The whole forest was covered with leaves,the quarry of autumn.I could see a small hill/mound ahead of me, that i wanted to conquer/climb.But realized that it was on the other side of the stream.I found a small trail which was leading right in the direction i wanted to go, I followed the path and soon found myself outside of the woods.right at the place where I had often debated, whether I should go in or not....
I imagined I would run into crazy inbred mountain people or something, but the only time I was startled was when ,a triad of deers, ran by.And there was this one eyed guy dragging a huge duffel bag,who looked stunned when I waved to him, whats with that..??

nice to hear your voice after long time man.looked like a burnt out forest rather than a nature reserve to me.
