There’s no cheaper lodging than a National Park campsite, and you won’t find better views from any hotel window, at any price. So instead of spending $200 a night for a basic room, reserve your spring or summer campground for just $20 a night.

Of 10,855 peer-reviewed climate studies published by scientific journals in 2013, all but two of them fully acknowledge “man-made global warming.” That’s 10,853 studies acknowledging human-caused climate change, and two that don’t. But a few old dingbats will continue yelling about how there’s nothing to be done about climate change, and the Koch Brothers will keep writing checks to keep the noise level high. Don’t argue with these people, just work around them. After all, we have important things to do!

With three-quarters of American voters saying they want more national parks and natural land protected, the dingbats in the House of Representatives are ready to approve their “No More National Parks” bill. Like most of their asinine media stunts done on the public’s dime, this one will never get past the Senate or the White House. There’s at least one species extinction we’re looking forward to: the end of the self-destructive No Nothing cretins who took the U.S. Congress hostage in 2010.

Girls are dropping out of Girl Scouts because they’re not getting the promised outdoor adventures. Instead of “sleeping in a tent and river rafting,” they get slumber parties beneath a TV and indoor “crafting.” The Girl Scouts shouldn’t be about selling junk food in a supermarket parking lot. The Girl Scouts should be about scouting—but until it gets back on the trail, the century-old organization will continue its 20-year decline in membership.
