Since it’s Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d share one of our staff’s best “Leave No Trace Cringe Date” stories — enjoy!

“Just prior to our first date, she texts to say she is running late. Thirty minutes later, she arrives for dinner and launches into a lengthy apology, explaining she was out hiking with friends and their dogs were off leash. They were ticketed by a ranger, and the ranger would not stop explaining why the dogs were not allowed off leash in that area. Thus it was the ranger’s fault she was late.

Without missing a beat, she then continued “… so what do you do for work?” WOOPS!

— Kurt Achtenhagen, Chief Financial Officer
