    Well three months later and I'm out n about. Camp is banging but boring now that the work is done. Just getting things geared up for winter now. About 75 gallons of water stored so I don't have to walk to the spring every day. Deer season is approaching and I'm ready to harvest . Been looking at...

    Damn near a year in the brush

    A few years ago I was living up in Minnesota in an underground hideout. I left for the slabs and west coast for the second winter and it all caved in on my gear. Everything was mold and wet. It wasn't bad when your there keeping it dry n shit.. I don't trust the underground. I say though, it was...

    Damn near a year in the brush

    Hey. Found a new place and spent the last few days scouting a camp. I think I'm close to being up n rolling again. Little more secluded and water access only is what I think I found. Gonna be in town for a day or two.

    Hey! New here.

    Lived awhile in a Mazda van. Built a raised bed and stored my shit under it. Whole back was pretty much bed n bins. If it gets slightest bit cold, everything gets condensation all over it. The wet destroys everything n the mold hides in mysterious places. A little heater helps but then ur...

    Fishing without a rod

    Get a small piece of board. Tie your line to one side of the board that would go to your hook n bait. The other side of the board, attach a wire through the board about in the middle but at the end of the board and tie your line to that. Need a river for the current to ski it out in.. Walk away...

    Thanks all. Think I found my next spot. N it might be legit. hmm can I handle not being slightly stealthy and pissing on "the man".. Lol.

    Damn near a year in the brush

    Heck yah.. Used to stay in an underground shelter but it collapsed, then did the tarp tipi thing. Then scored this big ass tent from a guy after cutting a few truck loads of firewood in trade. Love it. Have some winter picks of it as well. It's getting pretty weathered now n might have to figure...

    Damn near a year in the brush

    Paul.. It's a possibility depending how things pan out. I started in the bush, learned some stuff, went on the rails for awhile then went back to the brush. Nobody fucks with you in the brush. Out of sight out of mind. Well, mostly nobody fucks with you. Gypsy.. Most difficult thing to face...

They came out and made me tear down my home and shitter. Had to pull roots and head back down the road. Looking for a new place. I'm in...

    Wisconsin/Minnesota seems like they are everywhere. I used to stash stuff in them is how I first seen this. Corn dragged out by the tree rats and munched on top.

    Wild turkeys

    I'm pretty sure there are some laws against catching a turkey without a license, but the most easy and simple method involves a 50 gallon drum. Without a gun or traps of course. Not that I carry one with me but they are everywhere along the rails where I am at. So are the birds. I go to the...

    Almost morel season

    Morel mushrooms are the bomb.. Perfect time to start looking for these in your travels. They are easy to identify and awesome eats.
