We need to keep Cali close by for the next few days until the wolves that killed this deer yesterday leave if they haven’t already. The deer are on the move the last couple of days after a winter storm and the wolves are following. I put two trail cameras on it so it should be interesting to see what visits the carcass and how long it lasts.
I was tagged by @bsargus to show my #5tostay knives. I had so many choices and love them all but these are the 5 I use the most at the moment and love each one for different reasons. These knives are meant to be used
1: @helleknives Temagami- This was a gift from my parents several years ago and my first real nice bushcraft knife. It started my love for knives and my collection
2: @thebushcraftstore Wolverine- I’ve been absolutely loving this knife. Love the look and feel of the orange micarta scales. Great for bushcraft tasks as well as food prep and a amazing hunting knife for game prep
3: Custom puukko from a maker on the bcusa forums named bogdan. Every blade I’ve seen this guy put out has been as good a user as it is gorgeous
4: @eseeknives JG3 with custom scales and sheath done by @cams_stuff. The picture doesn’t do justice to the incredible work he did and how beautiful the sheath came out
5: @thebushcraftstore Ahma- This thing is a beast and a great all around bushcraft knife for doing camp chores to carving to food prep
Like @bsargus I’ll have to do another 5 when my mood and number of knives change 😂

Found this Native American arrowhead (made of quartz) on the property. Such amazing skills that the indigenous people of this land possessed. If only their culture was allowed to thrive. Pretty sure we wouldn’t be battling the same scale of climate change-induced natural disasters. Pretty sure we wouldn’t be facing an epidemic of addiction or obesity or depression. With comfort comes cost. The Natives could perceive that when the White man came with his bread and his guns. .

This would be a fun DIY project that will leave you with a powered water pressure source for a multitude of uses. Shown is a 275 Gal IBC container, but this could be done with a 55 Gal barrel as well. Simply add the pump, battery, charge controller, and solar panel. Follow @offthegridguide
Let’s be real and open here. When we heard it was a girl yesterday I cried. I cried because I was disappointed. I had this image of having a boy so set in my head and an idea of what raising him would look like. I obviously knew having a girl was a possibility but I hadn’t really prepared myself for that outcome. And you know what? That’s perfectly okay. I felt terrible but that does not make me a terrible mom to be. I will still love this little girl just the same and regardless of my fears I will raise her to be strong, independent, fierce, and okay with saying no. She will be a sharp shooter with a sense of humor, She will be beautiful and she will be self aware at all times. She will understand safety and all the things I’m scared of about raising a girl in our current world. She will not go through the things in life that I went through and I will make sure of that. After sleeping on the news I am feeling much better about the idea of raising a little girl to be just like her mom.

This book is a gift to the imagination and the dreamer that is a DOER.

Nine of Diamonds usually depicts a woman luxuriating in her own garden, clothed in fine robes, with ripe grapes & coins surrounding her in the garden. She has a bird (usually a falcon) on her arm, a symbol of popular sport and status among the nobles of medieval Europe & the Middle East. She is a woman of means, and by many accounts interpreted as by her own doing. When this card appears, reflect on what you have done for yourself and the ways in which you have been disciplined that you are now reaping rewards from. If you are not experiencing this, consider how you could be more self-reliant and reap the riches of your own doing ... .

Its been a while since I've posted and I have missed being creative.
Work has been crazy but a new chapter has started for me.
I've thinned out my work responsibilities to just 3 things which will now give me more time to focus on my creativity and film making.
I'm feeling a little rusty at the moment being supercritical but this will be my first video post for 2020 and I really hope that you will feel it.
This is a short clip of a perfect morning where I decided to wake early and execute on a feeling an intuition and man did it pay off.
This is a direction that I feel calls me to tell stories of nature around me and to document and educate with the intention of connecting the view with the wonder and majesty that is our home.
May this year be a step towards a more sustainable, self-reliant, abundant and epic life for all.
Thank you for following me and sharing this journey with me.
Since JJ has come into our lives we have been making some interesting observations.. This puppy has a great philosophy to life.. Eat, sleep, train, sleep, play, sleep, walk, sleep, chew, sleep... Sleep, sleep.. And what do you know..? When you sleep you GROW!
With my history of injuries, medication and depression, I once created a view around sleep that if I gave in to sleep during the day this was a sign of my decline.. This is the COMPLETE OPPOSITE.
Not only do we gain extra rest.. The body and mind have extra periods throughout the day to calibrate. This restores balance to your body systems and begins to pull you BACK into your natural CIRCADIAN RHYTHM.
The best part is that when you give yourself the freedom to sleep whenever wherever, it becomes very easy to fall asleep and with less stress getting to sleep, we have a better chance to wake fully restored.
So, what are you waiting for...? Go catch some z's 😴
Oh yeah and I don't go to sleep with JJ on my head but I seem to wake up this way.. Alot. 😉 💕J's&M's

In the cold and dark, she still practices. One thing I've learned about firearm skills over the years... they are earned more than they are learned. They are earned through hours and hours of repetition and patience. Added stressors on the body and mind will make you or break you. If you have never been to the range in ice, in cold wind and rain, in blazing heat wearing too much gear... you should. Training your mind to handle added stress in return helps your body handle the elements. Diversify your routine until even the strange becomes second nature. But most of all... practice, repeat, and then repeat it all 100 times again. #protection#train#selfreliance#armed#firearm#smithandwesson#practicemakesperfect#armedwoman#girlsthatshoot#concealed#opencarry
