WildernessPunk: Three Years

July 26, 2019

As the third year anniversary of WildernessPunk draws near, I’ve already communicated my thoughts on how both the country and myself have changed over the last three years.

WildernessPunk: June

June 9, 2019

June 3rd, My Son’s Birthday Those eight or so of you who have followed WildernessPunk since it’s inception almost three years ago will remember it started as more of a journal of my adventures mixing wilderness and technology.

February 3, 2019

The original […]

Goals, WildernessPunk
