So I Lied

Ok, so I said I was closing down Gingerbeard Outdoors and well as you can tell I haven't. I didn't really want to shut it down because that is still part of me but I thought I could not do Front Line Farm and Gingerbeard Outdoors. I was mostly wrong and I am happy about... Continue Reading →

Our Future

Well I have been thinking for along time about the future of my family and how we want to live. So, we have decided when I am done with the PCT we are finally going to get a RV or Tiny Home and live a semi-nomadic lifestyle. That being said, what I am going to... Continue Reading →

STR and Healing

Ok, I have been thinking how I can put into words the amazing time I had at Strongpoint Theinert Ranch. First, a little history of STR.

Cannabis and me

Revitalization and Revelation

Change is needed

I have been really scattered lately. I was placing blame on moving, not able to find a job, the wreck and whatever else I could. But as I was sitting here working on exercise spreadsheet for my training I realized something... IT WAS ME not my situation. I was not taking control of my situation... Continue Reading →
