Better Late than Never 1/3/14

Rudy Portrait D7T_8779cblI probably should have started keeping a blog or journal a long time ago, but oh well.  Better late than never.  Nose got cold last night, but that was it.  Sunday night should be a little more interesting.  Monday is supposed to be so cold that the governor cancelled school.  A good chunk of that’ll be wind chill, but I’ll have to add some blankets all the same.

  1. Good luck on your adventure! Please post more pictures of your structure. We got the sub-zero temperatures here in Ohio this week and I was humbled by your feat when I walked for five minutes outside.

  2. A very fun adventure for you Rudy. This will be a life changing event that is probably only the start of many challenges that you will try in the long life ahead of you. We want you to know that we are sending much warmth your way….and cool breezes when it gets hot! Pam and Loy in Moorhead, MN.

    Rudy, I am proud of you and you have put your eagle scout experiences to work. I wish you the best young man. Keep us informed. Hugs from a senior in Florida.

  5. Fun to watch your progress! Thanks for the blog. I like goals like this that show what can be done. And the entire learning process about what works in the cold.

    I have been following your story in the News Tribune, very impressive. As a fellow camping enthusiast and avid winter camper I understand your drive to spend a year outside. And well some probably think it to be a chore I know living outside when you are prepared is very enjoyable. A few years back I spent a Minnesota winter living in a yurt and really enjoyed the challenge. I wanted to pass along some informational resources that might be of interest to you. the forum section of this website can be very informative,
    ‘The winter wilderness companion : traditional and Native American skills for the undiscovered season’ by Garret Conover available at the Duluth Public Library.
    Also next fall check out The 16th Annual Winter Camping Symposium more info can be found at
    Be Safe and Have Fun!
