Day 4 - Rainy Daze

On days like these, instead of getting upset that the weather is preventing me from finding food, I appreciate things that I do have - like shelter, temperature control, clothes, running hot water, internet, etc.  The Survivor Diet Challenge is mainly a food challenge but I can't help think about all of the other aspects about surviving in a remote and wild situation.  I have tried to incorporate some primitive survival skills into my challenge over the past few years but I haven't been brave enough to really try to survive outside of my home shelter.

I also like to do a lot of thinking during these foul weather days.  I try to figure out other methods of food gathering.  I learn about trapping, fire making and other primitive skills.  I spend time on this log, organize my photos and videos and tinker with other graphics and animations.  It's funny.  When you don't have to focus so much on meals and meal planning, it frees up a lot of time for other things.

Well, today is a work day and as such I had to pack a lunch again.  And again it was more rice, clams, asparagus, and violet greens.  I really can't wait to get through this 'phase' because it is starting to get tiresome and it's only been 4 days.

When I got home from work I treated myself to some hot water, a big clam, some white rice and a little bit of honey.  More of the same again for tomorrow and the next day I'm afraid.  I am thankful for shelter though.  Makes a big difference.
