I have taught the ways of the wilderness for well over thirty years and have authored a novel which dives deep into the shadows that follow you as you traverse wilderness trails. It is my hope to reach as many people as possible to tell everyone that the wilderness is not a place to be wary of. It is the only place where a person can dig deep into their soul and find that which is hidden to them by modern day society.

What's This Beaver Doing?

  It's a special moment when a forest wanderer gets a chance to watch wildlife without influencing their behavior. 

Recently, as I was returning from a wander through the woods, I was able to witness a beaver as it groomed itself. I am sure the pond keeper knew I was there but he didn't see me as a threat and allowed me to hang out and film him.

I filmed for over an hour and have condensed the footage to six minutes. 

Come along and watch as this much maligned woodland creature calmly goes about oiling his coat prior to a days work.

Spring is Coming

 Spring is on it's way! The Sun is climbing higher in the sky and pulling the blanket of snow off the slumbering forest floor. 

Soon, the sound of spring peepers will fill the air and the dance of life will be in full swing within the green embrace of the wilderness. 

Clay Pot Heater | Does it Work?

Clay Pot Heaters are comprised of four or more clay planting pots separated by washers and nuts forming a multilayered unit. 

The idea behind these heaters is heat absorption then dispersion via radiant heat. The space between the pots captures the heat of the candles which then heats up the clay. The clay then radiates this stored heat into the surrounding air. 

I have watched several YouTube videos of this heater and found myself compelled to test the idea out. 

This post highlights my conclusion about the viability of the so called "Clay Pot Heater."
