True Wilderness Camping

” Camping to us now was a way of life for so many, for so long”.

 

A camping site like this one has its own uniqueness about it in the way that, you need a boat to get to it with all your camping equipment aboard. Once you get out there and set up, this site will help you appreciate what was once a life style for so many, for so long.

Within this Society today we totally have forgotten just what true wilderness camping is, it is a form of camping known as, Primitive camping. Which there is nothing out there except what you bring and how you take the time to enjoy everything that is around you. Primitive camping isn’t for everybody, as most are so used to their flushing toilets, that they don’t want to go without them.   Then there is the building of the campfire for cooking your meals and to keep the chill of the night air away from you. Tents…… is a big part of the equipment as without it, now you are sleeping outside under the stars, which ain’t a bad thing, but it will also have you sleeping with all the night time species that crawl the Earth floor, or maybe a Bear or two that may invade your site?

When camping in spots such as this that is off the beaten path and difficult for most to get to, it will bring you all the peace and serenity you want, it will also if you let it? Help you clear the fog from your judgments, so you can get back to being truly of who you are. When camping deep within the Wilderness, it will help you become confident in yourself, as everything you do you have to work for it, like gathering wood for the fire, so you can cook and keep the night time chill in the air away, but once camp is set and the wood gathered for the cozy campfire, now is the time to totally unwind, lift the weights off the shoulders that you carry around in the everyday life, so you can totally relax and get back to the true person that you have always been, except that the daily grind of normal life, has taken from you and hidden it deep within your sole.

Within this Society we have wandered away from truly being who we are, we have hidden deep within our soles our true selves and replaced it with a fake self, just to compete and live among one another. We try to be someone we are not, simply because we want to put ourselves above all those around us, when someone has become successful we then try to be as successful as them, but really what truly is success? Success isn’t defined by the big house, the fancy car, or even the amount of money you have, success is different for each one of us, as for each of us to be truly successful, only means moving forward on our paths of this journey through life, within happiness, while being confident in all we do, so we can all find the peace and serenity within this journey we all deserve.

We also within this Society have lost within ourselves our true love and empathy, of not just ourselves but of each other as well. This true love and empathy is within us all, just that we have buried it deep within, to protect ourselves from all the crap and hurt, that brings us great pain, then while we bury the love and empathy and try to move forward with no pain, we then get so accustomed to it, that we forget and bury it even further within us. this is what true Primitive camping can do for us all, it can get us back in touch with our inner selves, feel the love and empathy deep within us, so we can get back to who we truly are. Yes you have to work for your survival out there, but this kind of work brings you great rewards, that will make you better and stronger as you walk your path through this journey of life.

 

” Primitive camping is a type of camping that you work during your stay within Nature, but it will always give you big rewards as well”

” Being true to who you are is surrounded by our true love and empathy, which leaves no room for the pain and the hurt of any hatred that we may find”

” a camp site in the middle of no where has its own uniqueness to it, which will have us all change to be better and stronger moving forward”

” Some may not try the Primitive type of camping, simply because they lack the confidence and are afraid to find their true selves”

 

Many Roads throughout our Journey

” There are many roads for us to travel through this journey of life, each of the roads are very different in their Characteristics”

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, with these paths comes many roads and cross roads, for us to make a choice in which direction to go. Before we come to any road, we all start this journey very much in the same way and no one is different than the other. We are born and raised from two loving Individuals, that take their love and make the most precious thing on this planet……… A child. Somewhere along this journey and the choices of the roads we follow, we have lost what being a good parent is, we have lost our way along this journey and we make big choices without thoroughly thinking the choice through, before we take the action of that choice.

We as Humans are no different than any other species on this planet, as two loving Individuals form a child out of their love of one another, this is all part of the cycle of life and just what God wanted when he created all that walk and breathe on this planet of Earth. With this Child comes great responsibility on the part of these Parents and to make the choice of being a parent, is one of the biggest choices any of us will ever make, along the roads of this journey of life.

Now within this Society we all live, we can clearly see that, there have been some choices made without thinking through of the actions of the choice, as some are having children and then neglecting them without taking their responsibility more seriously. Some are having children with many partners instead of having just one that will share the responsibility and help raise the child. God created a man and a woman to become more than friends, he wanted them to be together for eternity, so they then can develop a deep love of one another and out of this love, they then can have a child to raise and teach, so the child can one day have the same responsibility themselves. When you raise a child properly, you need both the characteristics of the man and the woman to raise the child properly, just as the characteristics of the roads are different our characteristics are also  different then each other and when we bring them together in a good way, there is nothing but beauty and love that comes to each of us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Within this Society today we don’t take the time to truly look around as we travel down the roads of life, when we don’t take the time we need, we then make rash decisions at the cross roads, instead of thinking through our decisions of the choice in the road we select. just because one road is paved and the other is gravel or dirt, you can’t assume that the paved will be the road best traveled? sometimes there are many cracks in the pavement that we need to over come, which then detours us from our actual direction, with these detours we then become side tracked and lost along our way and as we try to find our way, we then lose totally of who we truly are. Life will always throw you a curve ball, it is how you see the ball, make the right choice to swing the bat, that will determine if you hit the ball out of the park or not. There is no road that is a bad road, it is just how we view the road and how we make the choice of the road, that determines our destiny as we walk our paths, along this journey of life and will also determine, how peaceful and happy we are, as we move forward within this journey.

 

” This journey of life throws us many curve balls, it is how we see the ball, make the right choice to swing the bat, that will determine how far we hit the ball”

” Having a child comes with a big responsibility, with the right choices this responsibility turns into great love and happiness throughout our journey”

” God created a man and a woman not for us to objectify each other, but to truly look at each other respectfully and to create a beautiful life with our true love of one another”

” Their are many roads in which to travel, some may be paved and some may be dirt, but they all have their own characteristics of each other”

 

The Wood Pecker’s Chronicle

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I remember the cartoon called Woody the Wood Pecker, this guy on this Birch tree isn’t quite as colorful or loud as Woody was. Watching him peck into this tree, I can say one thing that, for a small bird he has one heck of a strong beak. While camping deep in the Wilderness, there were many different birds that I have seen, with the Eagle being the one most viewed daily. All these birds fly around so open and free, with no worries of anything as they fly around. Then there were the Loons and the Canada Geese swimming in the lake and moving about as free as the birds flying in the sky. Maybe if there is reincarnation? I would love to come back as a bird, more specific, the American Bald Eagle, because they soar among the thermal in the sky as free and with a worry free mind, plus as they fly they do it with the greatest of ease. The Eagle is a big bird with a big wing span and when he fishes in the lake, it is awesome to watch as he swoops down on it’s prey, then grabs it within its claws and fly’s away to the nest they call home. When the Eagle swoops down to grab the fish, they make it look so easy like maybe I to could just reach in and grab a fish? But as I try, I then find out it ain’t so easy.

Just as we walk our paths through this journey of life, they to being the Birds also have a path to follow along their journey through life. We share this planet of Earth with many other species, but some may think we own this planet? on the contrary, God created this planet for all to coincide with each other, to enjoy and travel their journey in peace and happiness, but we the Human species through Greed and Stupidity, have made all our journeys become painful and full of chaos. We have totally forgotten how to share anything with anybody anymore, all we want is me…..me……me…… all the time, with no respect or regard for anything around us. This was not God’s vision when he created all within this planet, but it is how we Humans have evolved through our own stupidity and the need for Greed. We have ruined all the Habitats of all the other species, with the building up of all the land around, then we wonder why we are now being visited by some of the wild creatures around us? It is not uncommon for a Bear or a Moose to run through our yards today, simply because we have torn down their homes, to build up our homes to sell and become more greedy. Now we look for cleaner energy like the wind mill farms, where the Government wants to put them up by the 100’s, but unless you take the land from the people, where then will you turn? cause if you turn to cutting down more tree’s to open up an area for these windmills, now your forcing the animal world out of their homes, to try to blend in somewhere else and where do you think that somewhere else is? Correct, right in our own back yards. The bottom line for all the corruption and greed we see today is, everybody has their hands out for the green paper, with no regard or respect for what is around them anymore.

With all this corruption, greed and stupidity around us today, I would love to be an Eagle right now, simply because they are a protected bird, being the symbol of our Country and with that said, they can fly freely to where ever they want to go, with no worries of where they are going, not too mention only the Bear is as good as a Fisherman as they. Ahh!!! the beauty of soaring the great blue yonder, seeing everything from up above and then shitting on all the corruption below and I would know where just to drop the little turd bombs, then laugh as I fly by…….then as I return to the nest that i would call home.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, just as all the other species around us. to stop all this corruption and have no regrets, we first have to start respecting all that is around us, then we have to eliminate the greediness that has engulfed us, so we then can walk our paths in peace and all our journey’s will be happy for all.

 

” The American Bald Eagle is a beautiful bird, that simply soars through the sky with the greatest of ease”

” Corruption, Greed and stupidity has engulfed us all, time to respect all that is around us, to end the ugliness that has engulfed us”

 

” We wouldn’t want anybody to force us out of our homes, why then do we do it to the other species”

” Woody the Wood Pecker in the cartoon was fiction, as the real Wood Pecker blends in to the environment and isn’t as flamboyant”

 

The true Righteous need no Fan fare

” Blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the Righteous”

 

*****LK 14:14

 

 

Just as this branch has its many other branches and all these logs despite their state of repair, we to do not need the glory or the fame, to truly succeed along our paths through this journey of life. When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he didn’t want all the fanfare, he wanted to walk among us as simple as he could, but yet through his actions and at his resurrection, was when we the people saw the repayment of his love toward us all.

We in this Society put so much pressure on ourselves, just to succeed in a way that we think succeeding is supposed to be, with all this pressure we then become sick in ways we don’t truly understand, to succeed is not about the fancy cars, the big house, the knowing of what we may think of being in the “in crowd”, or the knowing of what we think are people that are more successful than ourselves. “True success is within you yourself and within your heart”. Success doesn’t have to be about how you look towards others, it definitely doesn’t have any measurement or comparison to each other in any way shape or form, this is the part of our walking this journey, that does nothing but makes us all sick and forces us against each other, simply because we now become jealous of one another.

We are similar in a way like this branch, we come into this World pretty much the same, then we branch out (sort of speak) in many different ways, making success of one, very different than the success of another.  Then instead of looking for payment as we try to find our true selves, we will get plenty pay as we watch with pride, what our journey has been from a far. When we try to be successful in life, by reaching for the big house, the fancy cars etc….. All we are truly doing is, hurting ourselves and becoming sick from trying to hard and trying to measure our success on one another. Jesus went to many gatherings along his journey, he never wanted to sit with those who thought they were the “in crowd”, he only wanted to be seen with those that others thought of as non successful, he didn’t care what others thought of him, he only cared what he thought of himself, as his heart became full, with the love of himself toward one another.

We in this Society have become so engulfed with what we think success is, that we have totally lost the true meaning of success. The not knowing of true success has lead us into a world full of hatred of one another, with no sign of Empathy anywhere along our paths of this journey. True success is never seen among us, it is only felt deep within our core of our being, Jesus taught us this within his journey, but being so far removed from his journey, only proves how much we have forgotten from his journey. We all walk a path through this journey of life, to truly succeed  we have to feel it, while we feel the love of Jesus within our hearts, which is our guide that tells us, we are on the right track. When we feel nothing as we try to succeed with the fancy cars and the big house, only proves just how out of touch we have become, not just of ourselves, but with each other of this Society.

 

” True success is never seen among us, as it is only felt deep within our core”

” The fancy cars and the big houses are only material things that mean nothing toward our true success of life”

” Hiking to any summit of a mountain will show you what the feeling of true success is and will also show you that it takes time to achieve and truly feel the good of true success”

 

The Dawn of a new day

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Just as the Sun wakes up each and every day and shines it’s light upon us all, we to wake up, to once again walk our paths throughout this journey of life. Sometimes the Sun might be engulfed in the clouds and not be as bright, but it does turn the night sky into daylight, so we can see clearly of our direction on our path. We to as we wake up, are within the clouds of our judgments, sometimes these judgments over whelm us and control who we truly are, through these clouds we then never truly wake up, as we simply wander along our path without truly walking with confidence. We are kind of like the Sun, as we both have clouds circling around us, the clouds around the Sun may look puffy like you can bounce upon them, but the really dark ones are full Evil as they wreak havoc down on us and never let the Sun shine to it’s full potential. The clouds within our judgments are very similar as they wreak havoc on each of us with their Evil and if we let them, will control who we truly are. These clouds within our judgments are very dark, so we can not see properly of what we are doing, or see the direction of where we are going, just like the Weatherman on TV gives us the forecast for the weather above us and the dark Evil clouds in the sky above, so we can prepare for what ever Evil gets dropped down on us, we can fix the clouds within our judgments, if we totally focus on what is the real issue, so we can be prepared for the Evil with our inner strength, then with confidence overcome these clouds and continue moving forward along our path of this journey through life.

The clouds in the sky we look up to, just like we look up to the Sun everyday. Sometimes there are no clouds with the Sun shining to its full potential, but when the clouds appear then they block the Sun, leaving it not so bright, with big blocks of shade all around us. When we are surrounded by the clouds of our judgments we to become blocked, from truly blossoming into our full potential, we also walk our paths in the shade of these clouds, which then has our self doubt get involved along our paths, with this self doubt and the shade of the clouds, we never really see the direction we are going, let alone trying to fix any issues that may be trying to control who we are, we also never see any of the warning signs that may be there for us to stop and take stock of where we are, or who we have become.

The Sun goes around us all the time along it’s orbit in Space, just as we walk our paths through this journey of life. The Sun also has its obstacles to get around, just as we do along our paths, but as the Sun shines at its brightest down upon us, shows us that the Sun has worked through the obstacles so it can continue with confidence on its orbit. Just as we have to with confidence, brush away these clouds of our judgments, so we can continue to move forward along our paths with strength, while we stay focused on who we truly are,  then fix what we need to fix, so we then can have a clear head, like the deep blue sky with the Sun and no clouds. When we stay true to who we are, we than can see clearly of all that is around us, we can see clearly of all the obstacles that we need to get around, so we can walk our paths of this journey through life peacefully and in happiness, everyday for as long as we are around walking this journey.

 

” The dawn of a new day is the wake up of the sun and the wake up of ourselves to continue walking this journey”

” The dark clouds are full of evil that bring havoc to us, the clear blue sky will give us a big smile with plenty of happiness”

” To see clearly without the clouds we need to truly know of who we are and see the warning signs before the issues bring us into someone we truly are not”

‘ the sun revolves around us along its orbit, just as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

 

The days journey on the water

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

As I grew up I always paddled a Canoe, but this time I had a chance to paddle a Kayak and let me say it was more fun than I ever imagined. I paddled all over this pond on this day, going in and out of all the inlets, exploring all that I could within the daylight of this day, watching all the Bald Eagles fly over head and a couple Herring also flew over head. a small flock of Canada Geese swimming along with no worries slowing them down, taking pictures of my days journey, documenting all that I explored, Then each little Island that I came to, I would pull up to the shore of the Island and get out of the Kayak to walk around and enjoy the peace and serenity of the Island. Now as low as I was to the water, the views that I saw were every bit as good as if I was in a bigger boat, that had a motor and moved through the water faster.

The one thing that this Kayak was better than a bigger boat was, the negotiating of the stumps as I got closer to the shores at every stop. This pond has a river that travels through it and the pond became what it is, by the Hydro plant that dammed and flooded the area for the use of creating electric from the water of the pond. All these stumps and logs that washed up on the shores of the pond, were so petrified from the water, that they were smoother than any man could do with a sander or a planer, it was like the drift wood you find as you walk along any beach that you may walk. Walking along the shores of any beach, has a beauty of its own, but to journey through the pond paddling a Kayak along your journey, now this is what true exploring is all about.

The point of the Kayak was pointing in the direction I was going, making it easy to navigate my way through the water, with my arms and shoulders doing all the work, in order to move from place to place. To some it may seem like to much work to paddle a Kayak, but it really wasn’t as it was more fun exploring, as the work didn’t seem like work at all. True a bigger boat with a motor would of had me move through the water faster to explore more, but time I had plenty of as I was having more fun getting to the next destination within the pond and exploring everything on my way through the pond.

The Native Americans used Canoe’s to navigate through the water and fish for their meals, they had no Kayaks back then, but if they did have Kayaks? They to would of had much more fun as I did, negotiating through the water of the pond. Okay maybe they wouldn’t of been able to carry much supplies, as the Kayak had little room to work with, but with the Kayak being lighter, they would of negotiated the water a bit faster from place to place. I can see certain members of the Tribe paddling through the water in a Kayak, as they shouted to the others on land ” Tatanka”, which in their tongue means ” buffalo”, as they warned them of their chosen animal, which for them was Spiritual Inspiration, food, clothing and shelter.

The Kayak was a great idea to negotiate the pond and all its inlets, while moving around all the stumps near the shores of the inlets. Then as you got into the narrow parts where it turned into the river with some fast running rapids, now your talking even more fun until you have to turn around and go back up the rapids, which was a bit more work. None the less the Kayak was a great toy to have while exploring and having fun and enjoying the great scenery along your journey on the water, then the plus was watching the great Bald Eagles fly over head.

 

” The Native Americans might of had Canoes, but for me the Kayak was so much fun”

” The difference between the Canoe and the Kayak is space, as you can carry more with a Canoe”

Tatanka is the Indian word for Buffalo, they used this animal for spiritual inspiration, food clothes and shelter”

” The Bald Eagle may be a protected bird and the symbol of America, but this bird is awesome to watch float through the sky with the greatest of ease”

” The Eagle and the Bear may be the best Fisherman of all the Species, as they just scoop their claws in the water and out pops their daily meal and they make it look so easy”

 

The Thin Ice of Political Correction

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

We within this Society with the Political Correction of today have become so weak, that we are not only afraid to say what we truly mean to each other, but we all have become someone for which we truly are not. we pussy foot around all the real issues, just to stab each other in the back and we have been doing this so long, that we really don’t think there is anything wrong with it. Just look at the ones in Public office that we vote for, they say what we want to hear, then do the complete opposite when they get into office, now we have someone like Donald Trump running for President and he speaks his mind, as he don’t believe in Political Correction, so we then think he is wrong and a nut case, simply because we have become so weak, that we don’t want to hear the actual truth and find out just how screwed we are within this Society.

Political Correction goes against everything that built this Country into the power house it was, now because of it, this Country has weakened greatly and if we stay this course, America will change greatly, to which we true Americans will not like the change and the road that we are currently on. This Political Correct road we are on now, has us all afraid to hear the real truth and pull back from walking our path through this journey of life, with strength and confidence, to be better as we move forward.

Right no within this Country, our Fore Fathers that made this Country great with their hard work, are turning over in their Graves, with the way we have latched onto this Political Correction. The movement that Donald Trump started with bringing out the real truth, has become even stronger, as he is not only speaking the truth, but he is saying what a lot of us want to say, only we are afraid to say it, because of this Political Correction. The only problem with Donald Trump and the way he speaks the truth is, he is a bit rough around the edges and we really don’t know just how to handle it, simply because we are weakened by this Political Correct Society for which we live.

Change comes to all of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life, the problem lies with each of us as we, don’t really handle change to well, sometimes we tend to take the easy way, only because we have become too lazy to put the work in and let true change take it’s course, so we can be better and stronger moving forward. The biggest problem with this Political Correction is each one of us within this Society, as we all have become so lazy to put the work in, that we have become weak and are afraid of any truth, whether good or bad. instead of Political Correction, let’s get back to the days of constructive Criticism, which will make us stronger moving forward, Constructive Criticism is a way for us to handle the truth and help us accept change better whether good or bad.

constructive Criticism is the best way for us in handling any truth of anything, plus it keeps our true feelings and emotions alive and in the for front of who we truly are. With Political Correction we become fake and hide our true feelings and emotions, leaving us with zero empathy of not only ourselves, but zero empathy for each other, as we can see with the groups like ISIS we see today. With this Political correction we have lost totally of just how our self esteem truly works, because with no self esteem, we then have no Hope and Faith of who we truly are. Hope and Faith go together, with no hope there will never be Faith, just like with no Faith there will never be any Hope for any of us, Jesus taught us all this when he came and walked his journey with us, just that we within this Society are so far removed from those days, we forget and have no Faith in Jesus himself. When we have complete Faith in Jesus, not only will we have complete in ourselves, we will have complete Faith in each other, leaving us with plenty of hope, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Hope and Faith go together like peanut butter and jelly, without either we will never be true to our selves or one another”

” Political Correction has not only made us all weak, it has totally turned us against each other”

” Constructive Criticism is a way for us to accept the truth better, making us all stronger moving forward”

” The thin ice of Political Correction has us all walking on egg shells around one another”
