Building a Tiny Camper from Scratch

Hello my name is Chuck Priest, in the summer of 2017 I was given a small beat up and rotten camper from the 60's. it was crisscrossed with slashes, shot up with bullets and left out in the rain for at least 5 years where it became home to a family of racoons. 

I was determined to build my own little camper but the timing was awful. I went ahead anyway Please watch the video below, I hope you Enjoy it. …

Bugging Out

It’s better to be a warrior in a garden, than a gardener in a war. That’s how you sum up the philosophy of owning a Bug Out Bag (B.O.B). It’s something that you honestly hope you never need to use, a just in case system to save your butt if hell or high water comes knocking! A B.O.B means something a little different for everyone and for every separate situation they are created for. I personally have two bug out bags, one for my vehicle and one for my home. My vehicle B.O.B is a…

"Stranded" (explicit)

My wife and I live in the most amazing place. It's a mix of big city and beach living. It's a place where there are skyscrapers, public art and huge bridges, you can go out a get some of the best food you can imagine but you still occasionally have to stop your car to let wildlife pass. This place is Sarasota Florida, it's about an hour south of Tampa on I75 but it has a…

Cheeseburger in Paradise

A guy at Bill Jackson's Shop for Adventure in Clearwater Florida told me about this little island called cabbage key, the island is located about 10 miles off the coast of pine island outside Ft Myers FL and has a historic inn and restaurant on it. Cabbage Key is accessible only by boat, and has been a refuge to artists and writers since its founding in 19whatever. The kicker is that the key had once been a haunt of the infamous margarita wielding pirate jimmy buffet and the rumor…

A Symphony of Snicks "a Tale of Clan Priest"

My wife is a wonderful, beautiful woman who grew up in an aristocratic southern family in North Carolina. I met her in Raleigh after I got out of the service. her family likes to drink martinis while watching the help mow the yard. My family on the other hand is a salt of the earth bunch; We came over on the mayflower and have lived on the same land for hundreds of year. We are known in our community as fishermen, farmers, Hunters and just all-around resourceful and hearty folk. One year…

Falling in love with Georgia





Being a 9th generation Florida local, I think of Georgia as a separate country, a backwards place where all the billboards are either about Jesus, abortion or homophobia. There are a lot of big pickup trucks and they always seem too close to your rear bumper for comfort. Let's not forget about the clay, it's so strange it feels like you’re on another planet, not just another state.



Recently though while traveling to Macon on business, I got a chance to see what life…

Cuddling with Giants

This is my first season playing semi pro football. I haven't played, watched or thought much about football for over a decade, not since after my first deployment in the navy. I decided to tryout for the position of nose guard. This is a simple position requiring little but brute force, aggressiveness and a little speed. I'm 6'3" 250lbs and about 18% body fat; there are very few things on this earth that I'm not big enough to do. Being a nose guard is one of them. The only thing that gets me by… Continue

the Line

I walk to the line. My heart is beating out of my chest. I'm nervous. I want to be somewhere else. My endocrine system is filling my body with hormones telling me to run or to fight or both. My mouth goes dry. My knees shake and I cannot think strait.



The first play is always like this for me. I'm always terrified for that first play. It's not the 300 pound giant on the other side of the ball that makes me feel this way; although he is glaring at me like I'm on the menu. It's the…

13 Simple Rules to follow while at the gym

 

While at the gym it is important to respect others and their personal space. Here are 13 simple rules for every gym goer that you may not even realize you are violating.

 

 

1.) Wipe your equipment – No one wants to sit in your sweat, no one. The benches at a public health club are a bacterial nightmare. Use alcohol spray or those nifty gym wipers to clean up your posterior perspiration. If your gym doesn't have those things available,…
