Matt's not a protected boy who only catches snakes (and lizards--in New Jersey, hundreds in Florida) and goes fishing. He plays a range of computer games. His interests at school include baseball and football, social interests implied by this, yet he's smoothly immune to falling under anti-academic stereotypes while getting absolutely no flack from others for being a nature boy, as I was marginalized growing up until I began drinking beer and actually did put anyone under the table who challenged. Matt won't need to do this.
So give up on your moanings about how kids don't go outdoors anymore and just do it!
Guess what? It's not just a free country. It's a free world. All you have to do is choose that freedom.
So a couple of mountains and Ryker Lake wait until we try again Friday.
