Of course Mark couldn’t just let this one go…

Yup, we all know…

You don’t mess with old Rex

…and there is always “the telling” after a trip away from the homestead.

But I wonder if there has been time for laundry?  Or a change of clothing?  Or does Mark have 12 pink chamois cloth shirts in his closet?  Someday, just some day, I would appreciate seeing Mark in a different color combo…

Animal dialogue equally compelling…

While we admire the author/artist’s ability to draw nature…

..we really must shake our heads…

Barrels of ink, electronic or otherwise, sacrificed in the name of carrying on a tradition…

…even though the current mantle-bearer continues to fall short of expectations.  Blah.

OK, JJ enough…

If’n you don’t shut up about it, we will turn you in!!

But how will JJ find the money to bring his truck loan current… heck, to even put fuel in his truck?  Will word get out that he lost his shit with his clients and threatened their lives?  And has the voodoo doll terrorized Rusty and Cherry back at Lost Forest?  These, and many other questions will be answered on the next episode of… The Daily Trail.

It still strikes me as odd that they have the pack space to each haul a family-sized dome tent… and if that’s Leola speaking on the right, I think the word you are searching for is dirty, not dingy…  dingy would be the fault of your washing machine, most likely…

I don’t know what’s worse…

…getting punched in the face, or getting browbeaten like a 7 year old…

Oh goody…  three days and nights on the trail, with nothing to think or talk about other than abject disappointment and the fact that nothing has changed… and the knowledge that nothing will probably ever change…

Do we think that JJ will take off his pack when he goes to sleep?  And will Mark ever have to shave?
