What am I up to?

A Year In The Wilderness

Public health experts from across the country agree that camping is the safest thing to be doing during covid, particularly if you live with essential first responders like I do.

I love to travel, see new places, and try new things. I’m also very interested in minimalism and living experimentally. Here are some of my adventures. I am spending 2021 in the wilderness far away from other people, traveling to all the national parks. I’ll also be trying the most popular local foods and visiting the interesting sights. I built a moving cabin to accomplish the task.

Logistics-Based Strategy in Resource Sovereignty

The most conservative estimates say that most of the US will be desert within decades. Mass migrations from harder-hit countries will start sooner. Our food and water systems are not sustainable and can not be made sustainable as they are. It’s time to build new systems and start preparing for the now-inevitable future.

Permaculture means whole systems thinking; sustainably producing enough food and water to survive over time while turning all our outputs into inputs and indefinitely recycling everything from waste to water. Arcology means thinking not just about what we build but how it fits together with the surrounding ecology and our place in it. Strategic Autonomy means designing communities that can survive without relying on outside sources of vital resources.

The intention we must set is to survive in the long-term by building a place for ourselves in the future. If we want to have a place in the future, we have to embrace it now and adapt to survive.

Random Incomplete Ideas

I have long struggled with what to do with random ideas I have. I kept a journal and then I kept a todo list and then I made a database and it was just too much, especially because I wanted to be able to go back and do drafts of the ideas. So here we are, my unfiltered stream of consciousness, probably altered. Enjoy.

Note: There are really a lot of these so I’m trying to add a few every day. It will be a while until they are all added.
