The Appalachian Mountain's Majesty!

Wow! On our trip to North Carolina to visit family we drove through Ohio, West Virginia and Virginia. I loved seeing the Appalachian mountains especially of West Virginia as they were very obvious, looming tall by the route we took. The beauty of these mountains is in their variety and distribution. I love that each mountain has a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees and that the even the most settled parts are quite unsettled.

I love the idea that there are still parts of this country that you could lose yourself in.

I can just imagine walking off into those mountains and finding uninhabited portions and areas devoid of human impact. I love exploring and being able to find new spots and seeing things for the first time.

How Beautiful!!!

A sad day for!

Well, It's been a great adventure! is officially down and I am looking into what I want to do next as far as a survival website goes.  I enjoyed writing and experimenting for SurvivalNut!  I intend to continue writing and dedicate a new site, but maybe in a different direction.  We'll see...  As for SurvivalNut... farewell friend.  You gave me a chance, and inspired me on in my quest for expression, and learning of all things survival.

Rainy days.

Don't worry. This is a happy post! I have had the wonderful opportunity, (albeit brief opportunity) to stop and smell the roses so to speak.  In the last few days we have had some rain, some sun, followed by melting snow and cloudy days and nights.  There have been a few moments I have been able to inhale the smells of the newly uncovered earth and simply feel alive.  I have looked at the skies at night and saw the stars peeking through the swiftly passing clouds.  The rain and drizzle falls on my face and I can't help but imagine myself in the woods stalking animals or gathering materials on a cold wet morning or evening.  Luckily I have plenty of memories to draw upon so these brief moments as I pass from one building to the next, or go from my car into my house are refreshing and reminding of the simple pleasures of life.
