They call him the Bob Ross of bushcraft

by allthoughtswork

In actuality, Andrew Davidson is a carpenter with a degree in filmography who posts his short UK leave-no-trace camping adventures in a series of soothing wilderness videos.

Soft spoken and genial, he uses calming background music and most of his footage is stable rather than bouncing along at the end of a selfie stick. (thank god)

Oregon Wolf Packs

This is how I determine where I will NOT be hiking. As a woman who travels light and solo I have to be careful of wolves–whether they’re hairy, dangerous beasts stalking me in the night or the four-legged kind.

They spotted four new pups this year¬†close to, but thankfully out of, my hiking jurisdiction. Yeah, yeah, yeah, they’re good for the environment…manage wildlife…deer control…chewing on my leg…scared of humans…ruptured artery…lovely howls in the night…dismemberment…..

I’ll stick to whale watching, thanks.

One-Liner Wednesday — #37

by allthoughtswork

“It’s funny, I had a hunter last year or the year before, he asked me, we were out on a mountain and he said, ‘What do you carry in your pack for survival gear?’ I didn’t really know how to answer the question at first because I didn’t have…anything. And I said to him, ‘I don’t survive out here, I live out here. This is home, out here.”

“The entire Pacific Northwest, everyone’s dressed like there could be an impromptu hike at a moment’s notice. ‘Well, I’m going for a coffee but you never know when a hike might break out.'”

That rotted old bus in Alaska where Chris McCandless exited the world in the movie Into the Wild¬†(and in real life), apparently it’s like flypaper for catching stupid humans. Uh, sorry, dude, you’re not a pilgrim, you’re bear chow with a GoPro.

Or in my case, decide to hike Triple Falls, see the double chins bouncing down the trail, and decide to stay single.

The Cave Roads of Tuscany

by duncanr

In southern Tuscany, there is a mysterious network of old pathways deeply entranced into massive rocks appearing like narrow canyons flanked by stone walls, some of which rise up to twenty meters tall . . . Chisel marks are visible all over the rocky surface indicating the laborious process by which these passages were excavated, but for what purpose is a mystery

Some Pics I took Yesterday

by duncanr

It was a nice day yesterday and I was in a reflective mood so I visited a couple of places where Dee and I used to enjoy spending time together

I am fortunate in living just a few yards from some parkland and 5 minutes walk from the front door of my cottage leads to this haven of peace and tranquility

.
Lots of happy memories of Dee here and .
