Photos of our adventures...
a look into our life...
After being pushed into homelessness, we were forced to hunt and fish to survive. This Olympic Peninsula Blacktail Deer (shot with my bow and arrow), along with a friend's freezer for meat storage fed us for many weeks.
At first we lived in our truck in the Wal-Mart parking lot or up various logging roads. Then a friend gave me this old hunting trailer that I fixed up and called home.
I was charged by this 225lb Mountain Lion while out looking for food one night. I shot it 6 times with my .45 pistol as it was running at me.
The front yard of a Mountain Man. The woods were my playground, grocery store, bathroom, you name it. There were no limits, no laws, no rules up there.
We cut timber and sold bundles of firewood. I sampled the product as it helped keep the boogie man away at night.
When the weather turned in the Winter of 2008 while we were homeless, our lives got very difficult. The game disappeared, the berries disappeared, and the hunger set in. We found nourishment in the abundance of Rabbits and various Slugs and Insects we dug out of the ground.
It was sure beautiful out there.
This is a stream only a handful of people have ever seen.
Sometimes things worked out in our favor and we got a nice tasty meal!
Other times we'd fish all day and all night without a bite...
It was all fun to Jordan!
Hard work paid off for Jordan when he landed this scrappy Steelhead Winter 2008.
I've seen a lot of interesting things on my journey including this power line explosion during a severe windstorm.
