Yesterday was cold and pouring rain, but today is a warm, 40-something degree Sunday in January. A good day for a lunch in the woods, anxious to try out some new gear I bought myself for Christmas. So, I grabbed my backpack, made a quick stop at the grocery store, and headed into the woods. I...

[ATTACH] The Winter Solstice has always been a special time for me. The shortest day of the year in my hemisphere, I have always thought of it as a new beginning. Death of the past year as days get shorter and the beginning of a new year as days start to become longer. This year was a really...

For a few years now I have fantasized about VANLIFE. Getting a van and hitting the road to live out of and living the life of a traveler. There is something romantic about the thought. Maybe it is akin to being a Pirate in the modern day? But I just watched a video about the reality of...

Now that the wife is dead and I have no kids and living in this house alone is working for me, I am considering selling everything or nearly everything I own and buying a camper and hitting the road. I really have nothing to hold me down now other than my job. I have some savings put up......

“Do one thing every day that scares you” -Eleanor Roosevelt I’m one of those people that like to go over the bad before the good. I like to get the bad out in the open and end on a happy note. So I’ll be starting with the bad news and then move into the good. Ok. Here goes. I’ve been...

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods; There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society where none intrudes, By the deep Sea, and music in its roar. I love not Man the less, but Nature more. –Lord Bryon, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage I’ve been doing a lot of reading since my...

How long does one mourn? I am ready to move on but I feel guilty. It’s like there is nothing more I can do so I feel like I need to move on. Everything has been taken care of as far as I can. There will probably be medical bills coming for months but everything else has been taken care of....

Well I'm sure alot of you might have been wondering where I went off to, and to answer your question....no where. A month ago I posted blog on my laziness. Well it's only went down from there to be honest. I've had no motivation to type up a blog, nor practice any of my "bushcrafty" things. My...

I am spending the last few days of this week closing out my old life so that I can move on with the new. It is hard to believe I am a widower. Her kids are coming to get what they want, then friends will come to get the rest. By the weekend it will be just me and my stuff. On Monday I will be...

I’m not proud of myself here lately. These past couple of days, I’ve seemed to have become complacent with myself you could say. I’ve been going to the gym and working during the day. However my down time….I have not been using the best of it. I can’t seem to find that motivation I had when I...

Looks like the heat is getting to me already and I aint even been here that long. What is a year gonna do? I...

People make such a big deal out of sports. Mostly they talk about how easy some sports are, especially the ones they don't play. Others like to talk about how great they are at the sport they do play. I'm here to tell everyone that there are no easy sports. I loved to play golf when I was able,...

Yep, I am late on my blog post. I apologize. It seems I am becoming busier as the days pass. I’m not sure if I consider it a good thing or a bad thing. Good being the time goes by more quickly (figuratively) and bad being I don’t get as much lazy time, which allows me to practice my knots and...

I must say, there really isn’t an upside to living in a 50 man tent. Some people think there’s some “brotherly” cohesion in it. I beg to differ. Maybe it’s just my personality. I admit I am an introvert. I would rather be left alone to my thoughts and sipping coffee, than join in on the pranks...

My strongest, happiest, fondest memory of the outdoors happened when I was eight. My dad took me to heaven.. well, we call it Yosemite. On our way there, we stopped at an old gas station. The kind that still sold "regular." As we walked up to the door, there was a flat cooler with bottles of...
