I used to disappear for days in Wisconsin in the dead of winter when I was young, my parents would get pretty frantic about it.
Now that I'm older and the cold hurts more, I do my winter woods bumming in Florida .
I was out in the Merritt Island Wildlife refuge most of the day yesterday on a bicycle, no need for a fire lest one needs to cook a fish or something,
the only thing that scared me was a raccoon as big as my dog, only because I thought he was a dog. I saw an alligator bigger than me, but he was way
more scared of me than I was of him.
I will try to rig my camera up waterproof somehow and post pics of my excursions, it rains a lot here.
In the process of rigging up a canoe with an outrigger, solar panels, battery and trolling motor for an aimless trip with no particular destination
I'll probably head to Key West, just to find out that it is just another place with a bunch of dopey people running around putting on an act like
they have it all figured out....
No destination, No expectations, No disappointments = Freedom.
I do refer to it as "meandering" or "galavanting", and understand the reason a brit would find the term "bumming" to be humorous....
