I Won't Be Living Off the Land

April 18, 2012

I saw an announcement about a hiking club, so I went to the meeting last night. I was hoping to get info on close and easy hikes (no backpacker, I). Instead, I heard a hilarious presentation by a guy who decided to hike a hundred miles from Boise to the Sawtooth Mountains.

The idea was to live off the land as much as possible, with a few backup supplies just in case. 

The audience was such an experienced group of outdoor-types that every time he put a picture on the screen of some plant he and his friend had foraged and eaten, at least one person could identify it. 

I correctly named—the thistle! 

I guess it’s a start.
