Modify to include all trip kinds from now, above

1.      Plan trip and needs – hiking list-long.doc; bus times.doc; USFS—(

2.      Rides – find online.

3.      Where – also look into hiking around Willow Creek; inquire USFS-Six Rivers; visit Willow Creek.

4.      Issues – see current sequence.doc, the essential way-outline.html, and a journey in being site.

5.      Chisel and minimize – clothing, food, b’pack weight (new), direct access trailhead.

6.      Future trips—on this trip I will pack for 7-8 days of food-fuel + an extra cup of dried lentil soup. How much is left over will tell me how much I need on future trips. Directly use hiking list-long.doc. Study trails—possibilities—look into E. Weaver, Canyon Creek, Stuart Fork, Hobo, other—trail conditions, water access, fire, camping ok. Possible shakedown tripwith minimal preparation.

My Life

Clear vision, work


1.      I am keeping to the one month protocol—I do not want to plan more than a month in advance.

2.      There are reasons, I would like to explain what it is about and why it is important (to me and in my opinion generally), but the the decision and judgment comes before explanations to you.

3.      Note to myself—for the obvious reason that reasons can be argued with etc.

4.      I am firm but want to be flexible, caring but not careless, responsive not resistive, proactive not reactive, insistent but not closed.

5.      Therefore, though at this time that is my judgment, it may change as circumstances change.

6.      What circumstances. Accomplishment is #1. And at present the situation with the ‘virus’ is rather unknown—when will it be considered safe, when will travel open up.

7.      But in any case, it may remain the one month protocol because my engagement with my work is not a passing thing. It is permanent (of course faculties and health allowing).

8.      And I think one month is not too bad for either of us. The main thing is we see each other (and of course that you and Kathleen have a good time in America). But I think that can be worked out.

9.      So what is it all about? That the universe is limitless and cyclic but in cycles of limitless peak and variet and awareness (Brahman) and that you and I are that (Atman), that I have shown this and am developing ways to realize it (with some inspiration from Advaita Vedanta etc), but that the way is never ending, and that I get little support from anyone else and therefore face the ‘infinite’ with ‘finite’ resources…

10.   Time is all that I have (in this life).

To do

Pandemic—what it is, latency of corona virus, research into vaccines and medicines, how long do viruses last on surfaces, ways of transmission—Protocol for corona virus protection (begin with what is known about flu and pneumonia protection). Documents—pandemic.docx, symptoms for cold, allergies, strep, flu, and covid-19.docx.

Minimize my collection of documents.
