W69,70: Back in the Fold
This week I got my allergy test results back. To celebrate my low reaction to wheat, I went camping with a bunch of friends and ate a bunch of hot dogs and beer. We played around with knapping some beer bottle bottoms. I did a little tracking. Willem found a salt lick. Two helicopters buzzed us about 8 times after dark. Weird. Nothing like helicopters at night to stir my inner paranoia.
Now, completely broke and planning my next series of rewilding classes, I started working in television production again. I haven’t worked in that field in a year, and within a few minutes on set I feel like I never left. Except I feel a lot better about it than I did when I left. Not better, just more motivated to work that system to meet my financial and social needs. I mean, how often do you spend all day figuring out how to dangle a glass of coke on a fishing line?
I noticed rain in the forecast, so I made sure to seal up my motorhome, around every window, crack, etc. I even painted the roof with another coat of that motorhome roof sealer stuff. And guess what? It fucking leaked! GrrrrraaaahhhhH! I don’t know what to do at this point. Could condensation build up and make it appear to leak? I don’t know. We’ll see what happens next. I tore out the carpet too. Another mess half done.
Thinking up video ideas comes naturally to me. Actually putting them together, that takes a lot more than I usually have to give. But I still like to write them down as they come and see what happens.

I’ve almost completed my book. You know, when I set out to do this project, I never thought I’d end up writing about the philosophy of rewilding. But the more I tried to do things, I failed because I had no community to do them. I feel like my writing will help generate communities of rewilding. I hope it does anyway. When I finish, I think I’ll stick to more instructional blogs and silly videos and less philosophy.
