WildernessPunk 6/12/17 Glenwood

June 20, 2017

To reach Glenwood New Mexico, from our hidden river/forest paradise, one has to leave the Apache Nation and travel through a hundred miles of high desert forest. Then you drop down thousands of cliff covered feet into the arid jagged rock which rings the west side of the Gila Wilderness. Our little group of adventurers […]

The End of WildernessPunk?

October 12, 2016

Okay, so it is not like I haven’t hinted about this. Everyone has pluses and minuses in Life. Responses to responsibilities, gifts and people gunning for them. Okay, maybe you don’t have all those things, but I do. If it was just me, and I’ve said this too, I’d be off so deep, that I’d […]

The Nature of Nature in WildernessPunk

October 4, 2016

Since I promised you, my gentle reader, I would cheer up at the end of my last post, I’m going to discuss the nature of Nature. You’re all well aware there’s little which cheers me like Nature. . . We already discussed the theory of True Environment. True Environment is an area which would be […]

Homeless

October 3, 2016

I think there comes a time in every survivalist, nature poet, mountain man, and off the grider, where they wake up and contemplate whether what they’re doing is as good as it gets or if they are just another homeless loser. It doesn’t help that you could probably be quite a few of those things, […]

Depression or not enough Wilderness in my Punk

September 30, 2016

Depression’s got a hold of Me Depression, I got to break Free Depression’s got a hold of Me Depression’s gonna kill Me Black Flag . . Ergg, yeah sorry. Not the greatest title for getting people to dive into a post. Either you aren’t depressed so you don’t feel like being brought down, or you […]

Resolution

September 22, 2016

Remember yesterday? Not yours, mine. Since then, 24 hours later, I’ve gone from being uncertain and insecure to determined. Even my spit of ill luck has washed away as our first Fall storm hits Flag. Funny how sometimes a person only needs a day to plan and plot, with a few conversations and some focused […]

Fall… into WildernessPunk

September 21, 2016

It is 9/21/2016… and Fall has begun. With it comes uncertainty and with that comes the need for me to either figure out a way to seriously step up my game or make different choices. . . I never intended WIldernessPunk to be merely a journal of my exploits and issues. My goal, as stated, […]

Wind

September 14, 2016

Getting all my data, passwords, and such from Nicole’s laptop took longer than I had expected. I guess I got pretty busy with the laptop she loaned me for a 5.5 months. But now she’s gone, the farmer’s daughter has returned to the Indiana farm and I have one less pal in Flagtown. I probably […]

Camp 5, Road Tripping, and Saying Bye to my Short-lived Wheels

September 12, 2016

Okay, so this is by biggest break since starting WildernessPunk, but there was a good reason for this. Give me a moment and I’ll think one up. . . When one has a ride all the time, you get comfortable and move at a different pace, but when one strangely has an unexpected ride, knowing […]

Fear Based Folly Meets WildernessPunk

September 9, 2016

I ended up really liking Camp 4 and could see myself going back there. As anyone who has read even one of these WP can grok, I’m not a big fan of crowds, yet, when I am isolated, I’m not immune to the Heebie Jeebies and I’m not talking about my favorite Flagstaff band. . […]
