Ghost Town’s Ghost, WildernessPunk

May 12, 2018

This is my new thing, at least for the next month or so, I’m heading out into Arizona’s desert badlands on the week’s most off-days, Monday and Tuesday. Some people think you should only explore the desert in the winter. Forget such nonsense. One should experience an area’s true nature. You don’t become one with […]

Can you go Back? WildernessPunk

February 9, 2018

They say, “You can’t go back.” Which is of course false, because you can go back, it just might not feel the same way. Yet, what makes it different? I often look back at even recent times in my life and marvel over how much has changed in just a couple of years, but things […]

WildernessPunk: Happiness or Rocking from the Bottom, Rolling to the Top

December 9, 2017

What do you need to be Happy, is it out of your reach, or did you read the WP Pleasure article and ensure you have fun every day? But what defines Happiness? I’m sure there are as many answers as there are different people. However, folks with an anthropological bent, such as myself, seek to […]

WildernessPunk Abode

August 26, 2017

What is the scariest thing you can imagine? Sure, we all get nightmares of monsters and things which don’t happen to people, unless you read my novels, but what about more reality based occurrences? What has happened to you, which you just flipping hated? For me, it’s moving. Okay, maybe I’m a freak, but I’m […]

WildernessPunk 7/19/17 Possessions

July 21, 2017

How much? How many? Possessions, what do we really need? Out of everything you own, how much have you used in the last month, the last year? Do you have things which haven’t seen the light for over a decade? Depending on your age, I bet you do. Of course, even in the US, there […]

I’m Back the Return of WildernessPunk

November 15, 2016

Hello again, surprised to hear from me? I know I’ve happily spilled all sorts of jargon about the integrity of WildernessPunk and I still believe in what I have said, unlike the vast majority of our current politicians. But if there is anything I learned from this last election, truth, decency, and consistency are not […]

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. . […]

WildernessPunk, Lost in a Sea of Woe…Shit

August 22, 2016

Wowy Owy Zowy.   So maybe making the birthday kickball game double play might not be worth how sore I am for diving onto the hard dirt, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. I’m just kidding. It was great to be part of such fun. Yet, part of me feels like […]

Traveling down the San Francisco Peaks

July 29, 2016

7/23/16 We got an early start and after the big Birthday BBQ I attended the day, evening, and night before, I was a little dragging. I wasn’t really sure where I was being taken, but didn’t bother to ask many questions. Sometimes being surprised is good.   Our small team dropped the van off at […]

The Coffin Blood Party

May 13, 2011

Part I Next to Nothing           There are times when bad things turn around, like when I was arrested inNogalesand my Hellish stay in jail, turned into a rocking road trip. Then there are other times, when everything seems to be going better than planned and then turns to shit. These days when I am […]
