Facing Fears (stayed overnight in the woods in a shelter I built)
Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Hello. I want to be comfortable staying in the woods at night (camping out) and also am interested in primitive living skills, so took a really excellent workshop that included building a debris hut and staying in it over night.
I built it during a super-soaking rainstorm complete with roaring thunder, which was excellent weather to practice primitive survival skills! I returned home super-exhausted, damp, sore all over, covered in dirt and debris, smelling of campfire smoke, with 1 deer tick embedded in my neck, but with my soul full of joy and my heart yearning for more of that type of teaching.
Note: I am taking care of tick bite (removed it, went to docs and got preventative dose of antibiotics, took tick to be tested for lyme disease).
