Disclaimer: No billy goats were eaten in this adventure.

Once upon a time there were two Billy Goats.

They loved to take risks and explore; life is better being outdoor.

But now they were bored and craved a new adventure. Right across the Pacific Northwest they ventured…

To their surprise they found this guy, in front of their eyes:
