12/19/23 day 80, Tuesday, Salem, Mega camp starting

8:30 a.m. I woke up. I take my time getting out of the tent. Today I plan on starting the mini-series of setting up my mega camp.

9:10 a.m. I trek over to the location for the mega camp. I record myself clearing the area out. Once that’s all finished I drive over to Lifebridge for lunch.

11:30 a.m. I parked my car between the library and Lifebridge so that way it’s a quicker walk back to the car depending on where I go. I’ve been enjoying walking instead of riding the bike. Riding the bike seems to cause pain in my knees over time. Where walking causes no pain. The cold also makes it difficult to ride the bike. When I arrive at Lifebridge I sit the table with my friend Sean. I asked if there’s any updates on Matt the musician. According to Sean, Matt plans on staying in the hospital as long as it takes to detox off of the alcohol.

12:30 p.m. After lunch I take a walk over to the Tent City next to Wendy’s. There’s no one around so I do a quick video. Since there’s not much going on I walk back to the library.

1:15 p.m. I arrive at the library and I hang out for a while doing work on my phone like writing blogs, uploading videos and such. I’m always running around doing stuff, and I always get back logged on work. It sucks being my own boss because I’m accountable to myself. I’m always getting caught going down these ADHD rabbit holes. The Karen Read case, psychedelics as anti-inflammatories, oh and you can’t forget the girl takes up a lot of psychological energy.

3:15 p.m. I talked to the girl, the lady of the forest. She wanted me to stay the night but my plan was to bring the gear out to set up the mega camp. I tell her that I’ll stay the night but I have to leave early in the morning.

4:00 p.m. I drive my little car over to where my truck is parked. I grabbed the 16-person tent out of the truck. I had gone shopping earlier and bought a tarp and some tie down string at Harbor Freight. I drive out to the location of my camp and walk into the forest. I carry the 90 lb tent bag on my back like a backpack, it’s uncomfortable. I have the bag with the tarp and other supplies in my hand. I stashed this gear under an abandoned makeshift camp and then I hiked back out of the woods and drove to the girl’s apartment.

6:00 p.m. I arrived at my girl’s house. I stopped at the grocery store and grabbed some candy and raviolis to make a simple dinner. We spend the night together, which is always therapeutic.
