“How did you come up with this little bit of brilliance?” Stan asked.
“Oh come on, Stan,” Bill said. “Not only will it be invigorating as we commune with nature, we’ll be able to learn more about the Appalachian culture.”
“The Appalachian culture?” Mark said. “Seriously, dude. All I can picture is that movie ‘Deliverance,’ with Burt Reynolds and Ned Beatty.”
“Well count me out,” said Stan. “No way I want to spend two weeks sleeping on the hard ground, swatting giant mosquitoes, fending off rattlesnakes, and dealing with hillbillies when I can stay home in my nice, air conditioned apartment, sleeping in my own bed, and with a Starbucks on every corner.”
“You are such a wuss, Stan,” Jason said.
“Cut him some slack,” Mark said. “It’s not like doing this is mandatory.”
“Yeah, that’s true,” Bill said. “So, really, there are no Starbucks along the Appalachian Trail? That could be a dealbreaker for me, guys.”
“Hmm,” Jason said. “Okay, guys, how about two weeks lounging on the white sand beaches of Bermuda?”
