I got to go on a lil adventure last week with Netflix! Their new show Godless is about a town in the American West circa 1880 that is made up of almost entirely women. I was lucky enough to go on a mini road trip to Paramount Ranch where I experienced what life was like for those women. How cool is that?! The day's hashtag was #TheFrontierIsFemale, so you know is was filled with bad ass women shooting guns and slinging whiskey. Yee haw!
The day started at the Netflix office in Hollywood, which is pretty dang amaze. This living wall was giving me LIFE.
My girl Eleven from Stranger Things! Yaaaaaaaaaas
From Netflix we boarded the bus that took us up to Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills. The ranch is actually a national park with hiking trails & an Old Western town from different Hollywood movies. So cool.
First activity of the day was playin with the horses! My bb's name was Bradley, and he's famous - he starred in this SKIPPY® PB Bites commercial - lol!
One of the stars of the show, Jack O'Connell, was there to experience the fun too.
This bb had been trained "at liberty", which means there are no physical lines between owner and horse, they're told what to do through visual signs of communication. It was amaze to see this beauty following commands with no reigning or steering!
Next up was learning how to shoot a gun!! How cray is that? I'd never held a real gun before in my life, let alone shoot one - what a wild experience. Obviously we were shooting blanks, but even blanks can sometimes be dangerous, so it was definitely a trip. The woman teaching us was such a bad ass, loved her!
Eek! There's mine!
Even though guns scare the crap outta me, this was actually supes fun bahaha. I loaded the blank bullets in and everything, then had 5 shots!
You know I can't resist a lil photobooth action kakaka
Next up was whiskey drinking! We got to sample a bunch of different whiskies, yummmm. Def got a lil tipsy, woops!
After whiskey it was dinner time - so many delish things on the menu. Pickled veggies, chicken lollipops splattered with red sauce so it looked like blood, yummy stews, chilis, and lots more. There was even tobacco chocolate ice cream for desert!
Was def tuckered out after a day of fun & excitement. Thank you to Netflix for taking me on the adventure!
