did it one summer and never doing it again. i honestly can't fucking do that kind of monotonous work. shit, sitting at a desk doing data entry would be so much better. planting a tree every 5-10 seconds for 10 hours straight is absolute hell. not to mention the bee stings i got, poison ivy rashes, horsefly bites, cuts and scrapes on my legs, and i even stepped into a giant puddle of mud one day which went halfway up my shin and was a goddamn soggy ass wet foot for the rest of the day. ever have to do physical labor with a wet sock/boot? yeah, blisters galore. oh, even our camp site sucked. northern ontario in may still gets down to freezing during the night and i remember laying in my tent with long johns, a sweater, a jacket, tucked into my sleeping bag and still shivering to death. then we'd have to wake up at 5am to get ready to take a bus for an hour to our plant site. yeahhh what an AWESOME experience.
mother fuck tree planting. i'd rather be a friggin janitor at a night club and have to clean up the stalls where drunk people just piss and puke all over the fucking place..
