Comments: The brush breaking really isn't that bad but the foxtails will drive you insane. Maybe wear gators or taller boots or something. Trust me. And prepare yourself for some really unfortunate graffiti. Some kids are real asshats.

Happy New Year!!

Comments: Trees is a troll. I looked at their profile...2 total points. This dip-s comment was one of them.
As someone who has spent a long time in the industry, I have to say that this article is really well organized.
