As my title for this post says, I'm loving the vibe I get from visiting this site. I had came here in the past a few times and thought it was a cool
website, then I finally made the decision to sign up recently. I have to say, this is probably the most informative site I've ever visited. I mostly
joined for the fun involved in reading UFO articles, Sasquatch articles etc. But there is so much more here, and I get the feeling that this isn't
just a website. It's like this is a community, and I feel more at home here with you strangers than in the "real world". The whole vibe I get here
just feels like what our modern society needs to have everywhere.
Alright, now that I got my feelings out of the way, I suppose I should give my general background for this introductory post. Well, I
was born in Newfoundland, Canada. Lived there until I was 14, then moved to the NWT. Stayed there (Unwillingly mostly) until I hit 22 years of age (My
current age), and am now in the most beautiful place on earth (In my opinion) which is Beautiful British Columbia (Temporary for now, but will be
moving here permanently soon enough). Ever since I was old enough to hold a gun, my father was taking me on hunting trips, taught me how to trap
animals, build shelters etc. I've basically grew up in the forest because that's where I try to spend most of my free time. Don't take that the
wrong way though, I love modern technology and love the internet (obviously) and playing Xbox etc. But I don't get any better feeling (Besides sex
maybe) than going out into the forest hunting, usually with a bow. There is something different about Bow hunting as opposed to conventional firearm
hunting. It feels so primal, and my adrenaline goes through the roof because you don't feel completely safe with a Bow. Luckily I've not had many
bad encounters in the wild, only once with a Black Bear but I didn't have to shoot it (Considering if I could even hit an awkwardly charging Black
Bear). I also eat what I kill, I don't believe in sport killing. I consider myself to have a very extensive amount of wilderness knowledge,
especially for my age. I can build shelters of any type based on the weather at the current time. I can make fires without matches, lighters or
magnesium rods (I use the rods now, just saves me from a lot of sweating). I know how to hunt any type of animal in Canada. I know quite a bit about
edible plants, I go fishing regularly. I also spend nearly every weekend in the woods camping alone. Overall, you see why I have confidence in my
skill set (Also, I'm NOT trying to brag, I just absolutely love the wilderness and feel very normal there). As opposed to society, where I can barely
hold a small conversation without wanting to murder the dumb person I'm talking to.
I should probably go into hobbies now right? Hmm, well, I have a gigantic love for video games, Pool (Getting very serious about Pool
lately), Jiu-Jitsu, Hang-Gliding (Screw Sky-Diving, Hang-Gliding is MUCH safer), Para-Gliding, and finally Scuba Diving. That's enough hobbies right?
I would probably get into a few other things but I just don't have any more time. I usually spend every weekend in the forest, Winter or Summer, and
the rest of my free weekday time is spent on hobbies.
I'm just now figuring out what I want to do with my life, which is to become an animal Biologist. So I have that underway. Umm, that
should be sufficient EH? But no seriously, no person I've ever talked to in Canada says "eh" unless they're native. Figured I'd get this post
over with now because I have a good one coming later regarding my UFO experiences in the NWT. I need 20 posts to gain the ability to create one
correct? Alright, well I'll be off! Thanks a lot to anyone who actually made it all the way through this article.
