WildernessPunk Camp 4

September 7, 2016

My Coyote Buttes morning is cut short when I discover a hidden motion detector near the majestic pools of water. I had just learned how the rangers use these to e-patrol back country areas where someone has decided people shouldn’t be allowed to enter. Funny I spotted it, not so funny that it makes me […]

WildernessPunk, Camp 1 and Having Fun

August 24, 2016

I find it strange to discover, after my back issues yesterday, that a night of sleeping on the earth has cured the pain. My legs are still torn up a bit from the sprinting, but I’m sure the 13 mile ride into town will take care of that. Also odd is… I woke up at […]

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 […]

Wilderness Punk… 8/19/16

August 21, 2016

Funny to me how this solo living, after being part of a family unit for so long, has become addictive. Even when I was being blessed with luxury, the best type of friends a man could ask for, and vistas of beauty, part of me longed for some of that alone time I’ve grown accustomed […]

True Environment and WildernessPunk

August 19, 2016

What you gonna do? Call the Lilly Ponds Camp 2. . . Yeah is there really anyplace better to call Camp 2? Sure I could be in Arivipa or Coyote Buttes, but if I was, I’d probably just be doing the Wilderness and have to minus the punk pretty quick as I set off on […]

I grabbed Chaos by the tail. I’d say it grabbed mine, but I don’t have one.   Meetings went fine that night. Looks like I might become a young comedian’s manager and I got a few free ales from the Aussie Skateboarder skating Route 66. .   Meetings went fine that night. Looks like I […]

Wilderness Punk: Back to Camp I and some Fun

August 10, 2016

I found myself out of the cyber loop for a while out there in the Lilly Ponds. Friday night I spend alone. I wrote, hiked, looked at frogs, you know, the normal things. I did take a long mountain ride down the Sycamore trail. First time for that one and in the drizzling rain, it […]

Wilderness Punk Camp II, Pictures of Lillies

August 8, 2016

After my blast into town to take care of the human and cyber side of my current existence, a little luck finds me and I have a lovely mother and her two children take me out to one of my three favorite spots in Arizona, the Lilly Ponds. They are a secret place that even […]

Wilderness Punk, First Challenge

August 4, 2016

Something happened yesterday, which became very intense. I was tested. If I had failed, this experiment would be over before it started.   I heard something moving over the hills toward me. I’ve clocked hundreds of days of camping, but I had never heard anything like this. I could sense something traveling my way. A […]

Wilderness Punk, Setbacks

August 3, 2016

Waking up with the sun, I listen to the birds and hope they help drone out the plane passing overhead. I know I need to reach further into the wilds, but with just a bike for transportation, I’d leave the Punk/Cyber out of my Wilderness equation.   Since yesterday I expounded on my resources, I […]
