Re: HanaSolo Explains It All

Thanks all! @enfier- Of course! Looking forward to diving more into that. "Barefooted and naked of breast, I mingle with the people of the world." All I ever wanted :) @western red cedar- Yes please do! (It didn't seem worth parsing details in my introduction post but we aren't that far no...

Re: Personal Hygiene

Does anyone have a good way to add the effect of dirt back into hair to get the cool/ sloppy curly hair effect? I already know I'm not going to bother going to the store and buying expensive haircair products, but is there something I have on hand or something I could easily make a large quantity o...

Re: ERE songs

Ooh- I love this thread! I was bummed my standout first choice was already listed, but of course Spanish Pipedream MUST be on here. That song's been popping into my head a lot lately with escaping the rat race on my mind. But also a lot of Sturgill SImpson has a "getting out" vibe. Living ...

Re: HanaSolo Explains It All

I grew up in a house at the mouth of a canyon, where two once-wild rivers choked at their confluence into a silty reservoir. In the depths was a timber graveyard. There lay the casualties of a century old lumber mill decomposing in layers of mine tailings collected from a hundred miles upstream. I s...

Re: Just Gravy

I'm new here so am nibbling and tasting bits of what's going on in all the journals. I came to yours for the clever stringing of words together, but I'm staying for the talk of devil's threesomes! Damn girl, that's a lot of life crammed into 5 years. And you sound like a badass. I've had the privele...

Re: Enfier's Journal

The difference between my first hike and my second one was night and day. Sometime in between I discovered Zen and did a lot of practice and let go of a lot of the planning for the hiking. I was just so much more present and enjoyed all the people I met and didn't care much at all about the miles. ...

Re: Enfier's Journal

Hello Enfier! I too just started a journal, looking forward to reading about your very different experience. DH and I hiked the PCT in 2015- interested to hear what portion of your hike stood out. Thru hiking mentality seems like a gateway drug to ERE for sure (or maybe in your case it was the other...

Re: HanaSolo Explains It All

@mountainfrugal- lol, I see what you did there! And I like it :) @jacob perhaps I'll find your answer to this in my future reading, but to cut to the chase, do you consider that type of thinking at WL4/5 a necessity to build the foundation for higher level thinking? Or could one potentially circumna...

HanaSolo Explains It All

As tempting as it is to lurk in the shadows, understand the basic philosophies, learn the lingo (and ultimately try not to embarrass myself) I want this journal to reflect my current mindset so I may as well just dive in. Thank you for your graciousness while I live and learn. Since you can't swing ...

Re: A long winded hello from the PNW

@axelheyst that's a lovely time to visit and thanks for the welcome! @WRC- The magnificent thuja placata! Indeed- I'm trusting that more will seem possible once the current changes are solidified. I actually love this as a first goal: achieve Brewer's Annual Net Income! Currently operating at ~2x BI...

A long winded hello from the PNW

A couple summers back, over a shared jar of acrid moonshine, a friend told me between grimaces of his dream to rent his place out, restore an old sailboat, and set off with his wife and sons around the world. How long would that take- I wondered aloud, and was stupefied at his response--- 7 years! I...
