ff into the wilds

earth week got me thinking, it's completely possible to live without all this computer bull poo poo. i've heard the internet makes you stupid. I used to be really into hiking and camping but since becoming an adult I've slipped into some destructive patterns and forgotten my roots. I want to start making trips into the wilderness and really getting away from it all

all of it

i really cannot understate how much happier i was living outside, doing manual labor, and working closely with a small community of people (good and bad). it felt like i was inhabiting a different brain.

part of it was probably the constant exercise and relatively healthy diet. but i think a lot also had to do with the simplicity of that lifestyle: my entire life revolved around work and the people on my crew. it was very much a living in the moment thing.

here's a video from one of my crews (i'm the guy from my av):
