  • Saturday, January 5, 2008 - Jena, LA
    • My stay at Grand Gulf Military Park was ok but not really my style. The campsites in the lower campground where I am are in a bit of a hollow with no views and none of the wildlife I enjoyed so much at Foscue Creek Park in Demopolis AL.

  • Monday, November 17, 2008 - Winchester KY

  • Wednesday, December 03, 2008 - Foscue Creek Park, Demopolis AL

  • Friday, December 4, 2009 - Brantley Lake State Park, Carlsbad NM
    • This year I was determined to leave the northeast a month earlier than my usual November 15th departures. I didn't make it - the grinning gods kept me busy with mechanical problems - it was November 20th by the time I tamed them enough to dare head out.

Skepticism is Helpful

If you want to notice things that seem wrong, you'll find a degree of skepticism helpful. I take it as an axiom that we're only achieving 1% of what we could. This helps counteract the rule that gets beaten into our heads as children: that things are the way they are because that is how things have to be. For example, everyone I've talked to while writing this essay felt the same about English classes-- that the whole process seemed pointless. But none of us had the balls at the time to hypothesize that it was, in fact, all a mistake. We all thought there was just something we weren't getting.

The Age of the Essay, Paul Graham, September 2004
