Mazlo

Posted by john timpany on Wednesday, August 18, 2010

 

Just ordered the last piece of equipment I need for getting back on the road - well the first toe dip anyway.

I wonder where a Satnav comes in Mazlo's Hierachy of Needs?

I guess, it could come quite high in survival these days, but can I recharge it from a running stream or an open fire?

I think I have now run out of excuses which could keep me from getting my backside into gear, so I have to start planning the trip tomorrow.

When the rest of the stuff comes in (sleeping bag insert, yada yada {I think that's how the Americans put it}) I'll be off.

One day next month (September), I will wake up after my first night under canvass for 30 odd years, and forget about you lot entirely! Hahaha !

Well, actually I won't. I am thinking about writing another book, so I will have the time to make a start.

'There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.'

(Shakespeare, Caesar)

Where you going? What're you doing? I'm confused. And just who is this Ceasar Shakespeare fellow? Sounds like he can write some tunes!

Canvas? You are a bit out of date. These days it's ripstop nylon . . . ;-)

Hhahaha - yeah yeah I know - it is rip stop, but the mental picture looks better :)
He was a good poet Humbled.

Get a good white gas stove that simmers! It's amazing how the essential needs can be trimmed down to next to nothing when living life at a basic level. "A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou".

Yeah, Cheekee, it'll still rip, but those heavy, checkered cross threads stop it from being as bad as it COULD be. Kinda like purfling.

I agree, Mudbug, yet somewhat tent-atively.

Agreed Mudbug.
The simpler, the easier it is for me to understand :)
