True Primitive camping

” Claim your own little Island for a week of true primitive camping, for a real adventure of rest and relaxation”

 

Your own piece of solitude for a short time to enjoy and see the true beauty all around you everyday. Throughout the Northern woods of Maine there are plenty of different sizes of lakes and ponds, all over these bodies of water there are different size islands everywhere, some already have camps on them, but there are still a lot that are uninhabited. All that is needed is a sense of adventure and a boat to gather your gear, for a great week of true primitive camping.

No electricity, no running water and make your heat by building a campfire, some may say no way? But yet there are others that will jump at the chance to completely get away from all the crap that surrounds them within this Society. Once you get to your Island, search for the perfect spot to set your camp, then set up camp and gather enough wood for the fire and chop the bigger logs into smaller logs for the fire to burn for hours, the rest is just maintaining, while you completely enjoy your home away from home, or your own piece of peace and serenity.

As you wake at the break of dawn, you can put a pot of coffee on the fire, place a camp chair on the side of the island that gives you the best vantage point, for viewing a beautiful sunrise and watch the sun wake up with you. Maybe if your lucky enough see a Moose or a Bear by the waters edge, fishing for their breakfast, or even bathing in the water? Then as you look out into the lake, maybe even seeing an Eagle diving into the water for its breakfast as well, this is what true beauty really is and why God created this Earth, so we can all enjoy it’s true beauty every where we turn.

Throughout this Society we get so engulfed within the crap and the working to make ends meet, that we totally forget about the real true beauty that is around us. We forget how to truly live and explore deeply what is around us, simply because through the crap brings us pain and hurt, which has us staying within a comfortable rut that we know, in order to keep the pain and hurt from growing bigger and hurting even more than we like. As we get stuck within the rut we then throw away the ladder, so we can’t get out to explore the true beauty that is around us.

Now as we explore our little Island and become familiar with our surroundings, we notice that the sun has moved across the sky, to the other side of the island. We then go grab the camp chair and place it at the best vantage point to see a beautiful sunset and have our breathe taken away, from the beauty before our eyes. As the sun sets we then turn to the campfire and stoke it for the cool night that has come upon us. Now as we sit by the fire staring deeply into the glowing coals, every now and then we look to the night sky and look at all the stars throughout the sky, this is a sight we can not see in the city lights back home, so we now see something very different as we now try to name the stars and planets that we do know. While sitting beneath the night sky and listening to the quietness all around us, we suddenly hear a few Loons chatting to each other, maybe a few coyotes howling to the moon, or even some Owl’s chatting to each other from one side of the lake to the other? the beauty of true primitive camping is upon us and as we sit back in our chairs in front of the fire, we totally become relaxed and fully enjoy our own little Island, which we only thought before within our dreams, sleeping in our beds within our homes.

 

” An Island of dreams can truly become a reality if we want it to and when we are ready to explore and take on some true primitive camping”

” Some may say no to the world of true primitive camping, but they truly don’t know what they are missing”

” To us primitive camping is a lot of hard work, but for the ones like the Native American Indian, it was a way of life and survival”

To much Lip service with no action

Dock

We throughout this Society are all about the lip service and have no clue, of what taking action is anymore. It all starts with our so called Leaders and trickles down to us folk, that make this Country what it is, then when you add in all the Propaganda Media, now you have so much Lip service, that it is impossible to have any action of any kind.

Our Elected Officials today will move their Lips saying what we want to hear, so they can swindle our vote their way, then once they are in the office, forget about any action, cause there is no action only a bunch of broken promises. With a National Debt fast approaching twenty trillion big ones (yes I said twenty Trillion), probably within the next couple or three years, shows just what our elected officials  are truly doing in the office they hold and that is nothing. Obama will say the Economy is fine, cause the Unemployment numbers are down, what I want to truly know is, the ones that have exhausted their unemployment benefits, are their numbers being counted? or are we only getting half the numbers for this? Because with the National Debt as big as it is, then what is truly being done to reduce it? The other thing that is not brought up is, a lot of people have taken part-time jobs, simply because the Companies do not want to pay for the Health care for these people anymore and our elected officials are letting them get away with it and then the people get fined if they have no insurance……… Seriously is this Country really better, or are we just getting more Lip service from our elected officials again and again.

We all want our five minutes of fame, we all want to be famous and be known for something great as well, but when it hurts all those around us,  you think there is a problem there, or more specific…….maybe their are way too many getting in each others way, instead of truly fixing what needs to be fixed. You can clearly see that what we are doing now is not working, so we need change and when I say change, I mean real change that is best for all involved. When you do take action, you don’t lean towards certain groups that are willing to pad the lining of your pockets with some extra cash, you take the necessary action needed to bring real change for the better of all throughout, so we all can prosper and be stronger moving forward.

This Country of the United States was always based on Immigration, but Immigration done correctly and when you see the word ” Illegal” before it, then maybe that is a clue that you are doing something wrong? With that said and given how the economy truly is, maybe it is time to shut the Borders for a short time, fix what you need to fix, so we can then move forward better and stronger, as freely as we can like our For-Fathers set up for us, instead of keeping the Borders the way they are and people coming here Illegally and stripping us of the true American Dream. I understand some want to come here for a better life like past Immigrants have done, so what is wrong with coming here correctly as those of the past have done? Plus when you walk your paths of this journey through life correctly, not only will you feel great and peaceful, but others around you will feel great and be at peace as well, with a bonus of, the United States of America can be great once again.

There are a lot of big issues that need to be addressed throughout our Society, with all the Lip service going on around us, there will never be any action of these issues. We also have to deal with this thing called ” Political Correction”, which is making us all weak and afraid to take any action of anything, for the fear of offending those around us. We within this Society have a lot of fixing to do and no time like the present to start the process of the true fix, the best way to do it is real change that involves, rolling up the sleeves and get ready to work, stop moving the Lips and start showing more action and become the solution, instead of the problem.

” if you want to talk the talk, then first you need to walk the walk”

” Lip service is for chatting to a Friend over the telephone, taking action will give you a feeling of accomplishment when you actually finish what you started”

” To fix the issues starts with taking action and being responsible, not being lazy and using lip service to say you will do something”

 

The Journey into the unknown….

Going hiking to some is just a daily trek up a mountain and then return to the comforts of their home. Hiking for those Outdoor types that like to go from mountain to mountain, is a journey through the unknown and exploring everything around them, as they take in the true beauty of Mother Nature.

Most hikes when you start the daily journey, is a beautiful sunny day at the bottom of the mountain, except if your hiking in the winter then your blazing a trail through the snow as you go. In either case you still have to keep an eye to the sky, as during your trek to the summit the weather can change quicker than you can snap your fingers, which is why you always have to be prepared for anything, as you trek to the summit of the mountain.

Hiking any mountain you always have to be prepared no matter what elevation you are hiking to. When you don’t wear the proper shoes, then blisters can be a major disappointment along your trek and reason for not making the summit of the mountain, not just blisters but what if you should twist an ankle and either sprain or break an ankle? Now you will definitely not be making any summit of any mountain, which makes for having a good first aid kit in your pack you carry on your back. Now having a first aid kit and the proper supplies in it is one thing, the knowing of how to make use of those supplies is a totally different thing, which then brings the knowing of first aid and doing the right thing, so you can get back to your car and getting good medical treatment, so your ankle heals properly. Inside the kit you may have bandages and tape, but knowing how to gather some twigs along the path and making a splint and wrapping it so it stays still, then finding a good walking stick to act as a crutch, will only keep some of the discomfort to a minimum, so you can get back down safely.

The backpack is a vital tool to all Hiker’s, no matter what size mountain, or how long a trek you plan on taking. First it needs to fit comfortable on your back, with a waist belt that takes the load of your shoulders and distributes that weight on your hips, so you can feel comfortable along your journey. The pack itself should have no more than 100 to 130 pounds inside it, depending on the journey you are taking? With that said, it is important to know the right things to pack within the pack for your journey. The most important item on the list of things in the pack is the first aid kit, next would be survival tools for just in case you wander off the path and become lost, like a good bright flashlight to signal as the sun turns to the dark of the night sky, most definitely some waterproof matches if you don’t know how to make a fire without them? This will help you keep the chill away and keep your body temperature at a point above hyperthermic  stage, a good survival knife in your pack will help you in many ways, along with some string so you can tie the knife to a good branch and make a good fishing tool in case you need to catch a fish, so you can cook a meal on the fire you made back at your camp for the night, you need protein to stay sharp and find your way out of where you are. Hiking along any path and trekking into Mother Natures wilderness can seem like a lot of work, but the work is small if you truly want to enjoy and have a good journey no matter where you walk in the great outdoors.

Being prepared along any journey you may walk in your lifetime, is key to having a safe journey and having successful trek along any path throughout this journey of life. The knowledge of knowing how to be prepared and how to react to any situation, will only help you to be ready for whatever that may cross your path, along this journey through life, or whatever journey you may be on, as you trek up the mountain in front of you, or the mountain of life we all are on. We all may take a different path, but the journey is all the same, as we try to walk through as safe and with as much happiness and joy as we can.

” Being safe and being happy are what we all want throughout any journey we are on throughout this journey of life”

” Preparedness is the key to walking this journey of life, or just trekking up a mountain that is in front of us”

” The beauty of Mother Nature is all around us, we just have to be safe and stop to truly see the beauty that is around us”

 

The light of the dark will always shine no matter what time of day.

“We the people of this Society, think of the light being daytime and the dark being the nighttime”.

To truly know what I mean by the dark, you need not look any further than the nightly news, We see daily all the ugliness going on throughout the World, groups like ISIS, all terrorism whether over seas or here domestically, all the tragedies happening to us from the weather patterns and big storms, then there are others throughout Mankind simply killing others just because they didn’t like the way they looked? This is just tiny compared to all the other darkness, that is going on around us everyday.

Darkness is a lot more than the sun going down for the night sky, to see the stars in the sky at night are beautiful, but “when you see stars from the darkness, this is not the darkness anybody wants to see”. When you look through the history of Mankind, we all have been through many of dark times, ” true there is light at the end of the tunnel”, but to see that light through the darkness, we need to stay strong to ourselves, not only believe in ourselves, but truly believe in the Lord God and Jesus, so they can be our guiding light through the darkness and really see that light at the end of the tunnel.

When we turn on the daily news and see all the darkness around us, or even within our communities, this is enough for us to stay within ourselves, not reach out to those in need, put forth a piece of us that doesn’t really show who we really are, just to try to protect ourselves from this darkness. We then move forward while we numb ourselves from everything around us, but as the darkness around us turns into light and happier times and because we numbed ourselves from everything, we then don’t change cause now this darkest of times has brought us a new comfort level, when we get into a comfort zone, it is very difficult to change and get out of one zone and into another.

True change will always make us happier and more peaceful, as we walk our paths along our journey of life. We neglect any kind of change, simply cause we fear the unknown, just like we fear the terrorists cause we don’t know who or where they are around us, or if they will try something the next time I fly? True change goes deep within who really are, it is getting in touch with our true feelings and emotions, showing more empathy and compassion of ourselves, towards all those around us, true change is getting in touch with ourselves and knowing what makes us tick, when something happens to us we know is wrong, we then look at the long term decision of it before we actually act upon it, as we see in the nightly news, nobody thinks of their actions and how they will affect them down the road, instead they take action, then after the fact get into a reactive mode, which only multiplies the problem, instead of being proactive, think through the action before you take the action, so not only make our own lives better, but make better of those around you.

Even through the darkest of times, when you truly believe in yourself as well as God and Jesus, you will always see the light at the end of the tunnel, true we may have to sacrifice something we love, so we can truly change from what we were, to who we really are, we will have to change from being reactive to proactive on our journey of life, yes this change can be tough at times, it may try to make us doubt ourselves? But as we stay true to who we are, be more proactive with strong communications of everything around us, totally believe in God and Jesus, no matter what that may cross our paths, we will always see the light in the darkest of times. Throughout Mankind there is nobody that traveled their journey without seeing this darkness, you just have to stay true to yourself, believe in God and Jesus, so not only we throughout Society, but we ourselves can walk our paths along our journey of life peacefully and become better and stronger no matter what may come across our paths.

” True change makes us better at everything we do, without it we fall short of truly being true to ourselves”

” Even through the darkness the light can shine bright, belief in yourself along with God and Jesus, will never let the light become extinguished”
