Goals, WildernessPunk

May 4, 2018

Prelude: I sit at the eastern edge of the Cochise Stronghold. I’ve camped in the Stronghold many times, but this is the first time I’ve camped on the east side of the massive sky island. It’s also my first solo trip. Blue birds of happiness steal my food, I’m hoping they trade some of their […]

Junk in the Trunk, WildernessPunk

January 6, 2018

What, am I talking about health? Trying to be trendy? I know North Americans hear so much discussion over eating habits and physical health, such things are the last issues we want to read about, or are they? Maybe we’re in a unique space in human history, where we have the means to fix and […]

WildernessPunk City

September 24, 2017

Hello dear readers and explorers seeking the truth of the wild within our modern explosion of technological ease. Sorry for a little gap since my last post. I had a WP written, proofed, and ready to rip, but withheld it due to an overabundance of personal discourse and negativity. Yeah, I chose to spare you […]

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 Extravagance

July 30, 2017

So I moved from a cool mountain paradise with no humidity and mosquitos down to a steaming desert to be blasted by the heat in the middle of the summer. One could say my choice has questionable merit and might have been unwise. Butttttt, hear me out. I have also moved from the most expensive […]

WildernessPunk 6/12/17 Attitudes

June 14, 2017

Confusion abounds and confounds. Strange to think how different my life was twelve months ago. Last year, I lived in an apartment away from my children through no choice of mine. Now I’m not only with them, but it appears I will be rescuing them. It’s just up to me to figure out how. Like […]

WildernessPunk 4/17/17 Hiatus Maximus

April 18, 2017

Oh gentle readers, I suppose I’ve been neglecting you, not that many will notice and less will care. Still, WildernessPunk, the idea one can survive without most of the mundane expectations of the day. It focuses on helping the environment by using less processes and items which destroys the land and instead living closer to […]

New Year: WildernessPunk

January 3, 2017

I sit for a moment in the airport. Big beer/Small Salad. Pausing, I try to think on what the New Year will bring. What will it mean for me and the rest of the people and animals wiping around the universe on this giant glowing ball of life. . . Sitting within such a crowded […]

Year’s End

December 30, 2016

I sit alone within a darkened house. Outside the rain washes over the deep green moss which appears to cover most of the exposed stone one sees in Seattle. I am back from a city hike. I return damp and revived. Like a forest within a city, I sit for a moment alone and dry […]
