Joseph Campbell Quotes/Garden Party Ricky Nelson

I think he is talking about the words of wisdom in "Garden Party":
"Can't Please Everyone So You Got To Please Yourself"-Ricky Nelson

Follow these words:

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” 
― Joseph Campbell
"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”  ―Joseph Campbell

Turkish Haircut Video: Flying Planes

I thought this was a pretty cool video but I would have been running!   I have been doing some research lately on plane spotters.  I just love to play the jet simulation games. I think I might have to change my line of work and become a stewardess or a bush pilot.
Here is a clip of a bush pilot in Africa. I wonder where he obtained flight training?

Top Stories from the Onion

Here are some of my favorite stories from The Onion.
If you are not familiar with the publication, please check out the follow via Wikipedia:

"The Onion is an American digital media company and news satire organization. It runs an entertainment website featuring satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news. It also runs a non-satirical entertainment section known as The A.V. Club. Starting in 2007, the organization published satirical news audio and video online, as the "Onion News Network".[2] In 2014, the Onion News Network was folded back into the original brand as "the Onion Video."

The Onion '​s articles comment on current events, both real and fictional. It parodies traditional news websites with stories, editorials,op-ed pieces, and man-in-the-street interviews, using a traditional news website layout and an editorial voice modeled after that of theAssociated Press. Its humor often depends on presenting mundane, everyday events as newsworthy, surreal or alarming.

The Onion's parent company, Onion Inc., also runs an entertainment website called The A.V. Club that features interviews and reviews of various newly released media, as well as other weekly features. In 2013, Onion Inc. launched Onion Labs, an advertising agency.[3] Originally a print publication, The Onion launched its website in 1996.[4] It ceased publishing print editions in December 2013."

Here are some of my favorites:

Brainerd Dispatch Robbery News

Brainerd police are looking for three male suspects involved in a robbery reported at 12:06 a.m. Sunday at an apartment on the 2300 block of Hillcrest Drive.

Map of 2300 Hillcrest Dr, Brainerd, MN 56401

Police Chief Corky McQuiston said police were called to investigate a report of three unknown males who had entered the apartment brandishing a handgun and stole several items.

Police learned two occupants of the apartment were at home when they received a knock on the door. Upon opening the door, three males entered the apartment. One of the males displayed a handgun and the two occupants were forced to the floor while several items were stolen from the residence. The suspects took electronic devices including video games, computers, a cellphone and other items.

The three male suspects were described by police as being:

• 6-feet, 2-inches to 6-foot, 3-inches tall dark-skinned black male, medium to heavy build, about 23-24 years-old, with a stocking cap, black jacket and black pants.

• 6-feet, 1-inch tall light-skinned black male, medium build, wearing a white T-shirt and gray sweat pants.

• Possibly Hispanic or Latino male about 19-20 years old with dark hair.

The occupants were unable to give any further description of the suspects, but believe they may have left the area in a newer silver or white colored four-door sedan.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the Brainerd Police Department at 829-2805.

The Baxter Police Department assisted with this investigation.

This was the song for old skateboarding videos from the 1980's. Nike wasn't anywhere to be found and skateboarding was underground.  Black Converse, vert ramps, and punk shows.
                                                               "Six Pack"

I got a six pack and nothing to do
I got a six pack and I don't need you

$35 and a six pack to my name
Spent the rest on beer so who's to blame
They say I'm fucked up all the time
What they do is a waste of time

I know it'll be OK 
I get a six pack in me, alright!

My girlfriend asked me which one I like better
I hope the answer won't upset her
I was born with a bottle in my mouth
Now I got a six so I'll never run out

I know it'll be OK 
I get a six pack in me, alright!

$35 and a six pack to my name
Spent the rest on beer so who's to blame
They say I'm fucked up all the time
What they do is a waste of time


What do they know about partying
Or anything else

Pueblo, Colorado and Wish they all could be California

Tattoo sleeved, hipster haircut wearing Californians

I have never been to Pueblo, Colorado.
I have been to Steamboat Springs back twenty years ago.
I fell into a ten foot ditch in the black of night.
But my young drunken bones were unbreakable.

I threw frisbee golf in the sage brush field near the community college.
I bought trustafarians numerous expensive micro brews.
I decided to grow out my hair and hike for seven days.
But at the top of the mountain it was freezing fucking cold.

I got a flat tire but friendly folks at the gas station fixed it.
I was from Minnesota, not California.
I was spared my life and they put on my spare.
But people in Colorado fucking hate Californians.

Great post by Van Vagabond

I thoroughly enjoyed this article about setting up a Sprinter van for full time living and traveling.  The author of this blog has many great posts and pictures documenting her outdoor lifestyle and van vagabonding.  Here are some of my favorite pictures, and the customization could also apply to expedite freight and doing deliveries with a well fitted Sprinter.

Blind Pilot: "One Red Thread"


"One Red Thread"

Oh from the first that the line got drawn
It was poisoning the land it was on
One red thread through the middle of a song
My only one, my only one

I can remember the age that I was
But not that story that pumped in my blood
When you were the savior
And I was the taker of
Oh where I was

Oh but man, oh man, you can do what you want
Oh man, oh man, you can do what you want
The only line that is true is the line you're from

I have to say there was a mile or two
I had the itch to fly and I flew
Now at best we would make our dreams
With something used
With something used

From the minute that the line got drawn
I couldn't see straight to you for nothing
Now me, I'm the poisoning one
Yeah I'm the one
I am the...

Oh but man, oh man, you can do what you want
Oh man, oh man, you can do what you want
The only line that is true is the line you're-
Oh man, oh man, you can do what you want
Oh man, oh man, you can do what you want
The only line that is true is the line you're from
The only line that is true is the line you're from

Lake Superior Surf Video by E Wilke

Some very good clips by E Wilke and his great Youtube site. I haven't been up to Superior this year but I would like to go and try and ride if there are other people out surfing. I have alot of respect for the individuals that can surf this lake as it is cold and unforgiving to beginners and if you follow the news you will see many people can perish from accidents on this huge inland freshwater sea so make sure to enjoy the videos as these surfers are dedicated to riding waves in a huge, intimidating and frigid lake known as Mother Superior.

Picture from 2015 Jaycee's Ice Fishing Extravaganza

The winners of the tournament this year were happier than usual. It may be due to the nice weather but I assume it has more to do with the winnings. Congratulations to the winners and everyone that caught a fish at this year's event.  If you didn't win this year don't give up...  One of the winners from this year caught a northern that took the big prize, and he hadn't caught a fish in the past few years of fishing the tournament. Perseverance pays off in the world of ice fishing and ice fishing tournaments.  Kinda like playing the can't win if you don't play the game.

Ice Shanty Build

Check out more pictures and details at

I really like a permanent ice house vs. the tarp or portable for fishing, but when it comes to taking it off the lake a portable is the only way to go.  For some reason, people come out of the wood work to put the ice house on the lake, but in the spring when the ice is melting most friends won't answer the phone when it is time to take the ice house off the lake. I really like the plans and descriptions to this small build.  Please post your result if you have built an ice house.
