An Adventure with the Wool Epiphany Journal
February 3rd, 2014
My first nature adventure! I’m so excited to get away from the hustle and bustle of big-city life and connect back with the environment. It seems like our generation has become more and more reliant on technology and with our faces constantly glued to iPads, youPads, we all scream for newPads, a relaxing nature hike will be a welcome change of pace. I’ve even picked up this custom, American made Wool Epiphany Journal with my picture so I can record my journey in wonderful analog! My fingers have gotten so used to keys and touch-screens that I almost forgot how to use a pen! Anyways, it’s time these boots get to trekkin’! More to come later!

So, trying to fall asleep while wild wolves and wind howl together outside your tent is no simple task. I ended up pulling my sleeping bag tightly over my head, leaving just enough breathing space for my nose and mouth. Ha-ha, now I know what a burrito feels like! Yea, it may take some getting used to at first, but at least I’m doin’ it! Just me and Mama Nature – To heck with Twitter and Facebook, all I need is the outdoors and this imprinted wool epiphany journal to keep track of my exploits.

A wild boar chased me down yesterday. Though I managed to escape with only a few bruises and cuts (which may be infected by the looks of things), my personalized wool epiphany journal fell out of my rucksack and into a puddle. I had to hang it by its leather strap and let it air dry for the rest of the night. On top of that, some animals have managed to find their way into my grub stash while I was sleeping and eat a good portion of my food. Awesome. But hey, at least the sun is shining and I can take in all this fresh air. Yay, nature… Man, I’d kill for a smooth cup of Starbucks java right now.

These darn birds and their chirping…I oughta feed your beaks…with my FIST! Ugh. Where’s their snooze button? So today, as you might suspect, I’m up with the sun. Which is great, I guess. It gives me time to accurately plot out all the leaves and sticks I’ll be walkin’ over today. Oh look, it’s a brown leaf! Hey a green one! What a shocker, it’s another twig, how keen! I think I’ve had my fill of this tree huggin’ life. I can’t wait to get home, turn on the tube and collapse in my bed.

I have no idea where I am. Somewhere on the path between the bush that looks like Duane “The Rock” Johnson and the rock that looks like Emma Stone, I made a wrong turn. This freezing cold wind is cutting deep to my bones and I can barely step foot outside my tent, let alone my sleeping bag. Gosh, why didn’t I bring my phone with me!? Oh right, I wanted to be some kind of rugged mountaineer. A real man’s man – rough and tumble. All this to impress Jenny from accounting. Yea, you’re gonna kick the bucket alone in the wilderness, REAL impressive. Someone else is bound to come along, right? That nature website said that this is a fairly popular hiking trail. Oh internet, how I miss you.

My fire is getting low and so is my wood supply. Well, at least this wool epiphany journal is flammable. Wait, are those footsteps or just more hunger-induced hallucinations!?

I don’t know how much longer I had. Thank goodness those hikers showed up when they did! I was munching on the last couple crackers I had, watching my fire smolder to ash when fate twisted my way for the first time since I started this adventure! The chipped paint and rust stains on my front door never looked so beautiful. That’s the last time I do something crazy like that. Man, I can’t wait to post this to my blog.
