“Bread & Milk” is a basic necessity.
This is a impromptu adventure, some away time from our businesses an opportunity to connect with our friends.
We sleep under the stars and talk man things or just be in the wilderness. The historic connection we share allows us to understand each other, to pull the piss out of each other and to discuss things others find 🙄. These include fishing, bike sprockets, suspension and our role on this earth.
However: DON’T MENTION THE CHEESE!
I believe we men need to get away, into the wild, escaping the comforts of everyday life as a means of satisfying a primal instinct that required us to adventure for food. I guess it was called hunting and was an activity undertaken by men.
A friend of mine once said he tells his wife he is going to the shop on his bike for “bread & milk” only to return two weeks later, refreshed, ready to continue being the husband any good wife deserves.
Just a footnote to say I believe cheese, like an adventure, to be a necessity.
