My good friend took this picture of me while on the way out of the mountains. Figured I’d upload it! I apologize for not being very active on tumblr. I still keep all my good friends and followers in mind everyday. I hope you guys are doing well. I’ll try to be more active on here. Hope every ones day is going well!
The man who goes afoot, prepared to camp anywhere and in any weather, is the most independent fellow on earth. He can follow his bent, obey the whim of the hour, do what he pleases whenever he pleases, without deference to anybody, or care for any beast of burden or obedience to the course of any current. He is footloose and free. Where neither horse nor boat can go, he can go, seeing country that no other kind of traveler ever sees.
My heart and prayers go out to the family, friends and loved ones of those who perished 11 years ago in the Battle of Takur Ghar in Afghanistan. We will never forget…Navy SEAL Petty Officer Neil Roberts; Air Force Combat Controller TSgt John A. Chapman; Air Force Pararescue SrA Jason D. Cunningham; Army Rangers PFC Matthew A. Commons, SGT Bradley S. Crose, SPC Marc A. Anderson; and Army 160th SOAR SGT Phillip Svitak
The whole point behind it is being able to just break somebodies soul to where they can’t keep up with me at whatever tempo I decide to set.
…there are some who plunge into an unbroken forest with a feeling of fresh, free, invigorating delight… These know that nature is stern, hard, immovable an terrible in unrelenting cruelty. When wintry winds are out and the mercury far below zero, she will allow her most ardent lover to freeze on her snowy breast without waving a leaf in pity, or offering him a match; and scores of her devotees may starve to death in as many different languages before she will offer a loaf of bread. She does not deal in matches and loafs; rather in thunderbolts and granite mountains. And the ashes of her camp-fires bury proud cities. But, like any tyrant, she yields to force, and gives the more, the more she is beaten. She may starve or freeze the poet, the scholar, the scientist; all the same, she has in store food, fuel and shelter, which the skillful, self-reliant woodsman can wring from her savage hands with axe and rifle.
A good rifle and a good knife is all I need to get by in life.
I’ve been away for awhile.
I hope all of you are doing well. I apologize to all my friends who I have not been in touch with. You know who you are. Going to make a much greater effort to stay in touch with all of you and stay active on my blog. To any new followers, thank you. I will check out your blogs when I can. Stay tuned for future posts and updates!
