Travel Log - Hunting, Hitchhiking, Painting & Getting Dirty: Traveling Across America

Recommended Posts

Re: Travel Log - 2011 - USA

 

I was lucky enough to have crew in Memphis to let me chill at their houses and shoot pool and get drunk, but as I always do I get restless feet in large cities and leave without saying goodbye, sorry guys.

 

flicks from Memphis, TN

Slept at the hatchery, where I woke up early and jimmied into the place where they have all the fish. It was about 6:15 and I saw a car coming so I left but I managed to get a cou0ple of flicks before I left.

I don't know if they left all the shit on all the time or what but it was strange..

 

 

I left and found this old mining town that was abandoned, I drove around for several days just wandering through the ashes of old business and slept in a fort I made

before too long these feral dogs came to me and were my friends for the next few days, they watched out and would not let me out of their sight for anything. I brought them some food and they slept outside my tent. When I left, I left them a tent to sleep in. Their names were Bone, Biscuit, and Ruin.

There were many strange places that I slept, and most of them were found at night, so I really didn't know where I was until the morning. I had a great deal of MRE's that a good friend had given me before I left, so I stayed somewhat on the lesser side of hunger. A lot of what I ate was either dumpstered or shot and skinned. Many wild plants I found, like pineapple weed, wild onion, chokecherries andlots of wild fruit, even an apple tree that was a great blessing.

Yea, after my last experience running into a pack of wild dogs, I definitely woulda just went back to my car and waited for them to leave.

 

Bump MRE's.. I still have a few of those. Some of them taste like absolute shit, but goddamn.. It's better than starving.

Riding a mountain bike around some fields and orchards in the central valley of CA, I came across a bunch of feral dogs running around, yipping at me and stuff. Some of these fuckers were foaming at the mouth and hella mangy looking. So in an effort to avoid this pack of degs- I dip out and pedal away at a quick pace.

 

One of the smaller guys got ballsy and decided to chase me nipping at my heels and such. He ended up getting his head caught in my spokes somehow and went around with the wheel only to hit rear fork before his neck snapped and he pretty much decapitated himself.

 

I was pretty upset about the whole situation. He broke like four spokes, man.

 

Cool thread. Traveling in style I see!

Re: Travel Log - 2011 - USA

 

I have a .22 rifle with a scope and a .40 Desert Eagle (Baby or Jericho)

 

And I've seen a few bears so far, none have approached. No grizzlies yet though. I wish I had more time to go through my pictures but I'm cramped to uppload them and enough ttime to post in the same sitting. Anyway, I stayed in Joplin for a week or two and the weather was unbearably hot. I volunteered with the Americorps there every day cleaning out people's wrecked houses - I met a guy as i was cleaning out his house and as I was sorting through his stuff he asked me to sit down with him, and pointed over to some rubble that looked like shredded wheat and cinder blocks, and says, "right over there is where the bathroom was. When the tornado came, I was out of town, and my wife and 4 year old son were in the house. They went to the bathtub and pulled some things over them and when the tornado hit, the entire house collapsed on them. They both died, right there. That was three weeks ago..."

 

That was pretty rough. And I'm holding this photo of the guy's kid on a little play tractor in the street, which is now filled with the rotting material of what used to be his house.

 

Some more flicks - I only have a few minutes left.
