I have never felt really comfortable in The Woods. I don’t know if it is just that I am a city kid and only a really foolish girl wandered about alone in the urban woodlands. Our Ravine was notorious for inner city campers, a mobile whore house, apparently a hanging, many a flasher sighting, and rapes. We spent quite a bit of time in there in high school, Capitol Hill kids would have kegs at Jim’s Joint and we would drive around in there all the time. But I would never ever walk in there alone.

Plus the Cascade Mountains are the native habitat of Sasquatch.

But I think the real reason I fear the woods is The Poo Pit Monster. The Poo Pit Monster lives in the bottom of Poo Pits (outhouses) and will grab your bottom and pull you down into the pit if you are not careful to have a good flashlight. The Poo Pit Monster can also get you when you are walking through the woods at night to go to use the Poo Pit. That is why you never go to the Poo Pit alone. It doesn’t matter what time of night it is, it is your duty as a friend to accompany your friends to the Poo Pit at night so they don’t get captured.
