As I was laying in the bath tonight, (well it is my birthday today) I was thinking about this thread. Before I go any further let me assure you that I
am of sound mind and body, but don’t ask my wife to confirm that.
I don’t know about any of you but I suffer from reoccurring dreams. I say suffer because I don’t understand why I do. There are mainly two dreams
that I have and these are they –
1, I am stood outside looking at the sky and as the clouds move and reveal clear areas of sky I can see these lovely patterns of all colours that are
made up of stars and, dare I say it, some sort of craft. Now I sit on the fence regarding ufo’s and the like even though I saw a orange ball of
light move across the sky a couple of weeks ago. It moved in a zig zag pattern and was visible for about 20 secs. My wife just gave me a funny look
when I told her, like they do.
2, I am away from home and packing my bags to go somewhere, I don’t know where, but it is always a couple of hundred miles away. The funny thing is
I tell people that I am walking there, no busses or cars and I always start at the coast. Many times there is a conflict involving the Army or Navy
prior to my trips. Boy, do I have weird dreams.
Now if I took all this, plus what I am going to tell you, to heart, I would say that my life has been leading up to this event.
I have always been an outdoors person and have learnt many skills (compared to some).
I have done many sports and am a hands on person, including the following.
1, 12 yeas in the forces
2, always into tools and DIY.
3, Shot many full and small bore weapons in competition,
4, Was English national bare bow archery champion.
5, Taught my son how to make animal traps at a very early age, we always dismantled them as I would only trap animals in a “have to” situation.
6, Used to race canoes over long distances.
7, I am and have been into bush craft and camping for quite a few years now. I was up in Scotland this year canoe camping on the sea lochs, caught a
few fish as well.
8, my mind seems to be on the outdoors and survival most of the time as does my brothers.
You get the picture, Personally, I don’t think anything of it but if it wasn’t for this thread I would never have given it a thought.
I always wondered why even though I have a £6000 trailer tent I would rather sleep in a gortex bag under a bush.
Maybe one day a prediction will come true but I hope it’s not this one.
I must say that you would not have made this decision lightly and I think you are a brave man to go ahead with it.
I’m glad Noah wasn’t on the internet as someone may have talked him out of building the Ark. Makes you think doesn’t it.
By the way, I’ve just made myself a multi fuel stove because their was nothing on the market that was right for me. Visit my website and click on MY
