I left the Heart of Darkness thirteen months ago. I’m in South America now, making friends and learning the language. I’ve been fortunate enough to have survived my own stupidity for 72 years. I think I’ve learned a couple of things.March 27, 2014 at 1:30 am #3821

Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.

Thanks, Gypsy Wanderer Husky. If we’re lucky, we live and learn.March 27, 2014 at 8:21 am #3965
Welcome MuffinMann, there must be lot of good experience there, not just stupidity.March 27, 2014 at 4:12 pm #4045
Welcome Muffinman. Been there, done that. Don’t want to do it again, but I probably will.March 28, 2014 at 11:34 am #4220
Wow! You have done what I would love to do! I keep talking to the husband, but so far I am stuck here and having to make the best of it. I think you are so wise to leave. I hope all goes well for you!March 29, 2014 at 1:46 pm #4899
Glad to have you here!
South America must be very interesting in terms of what to prep for and how to prep for it.
I’m excited to hear more from you.

Thanks, Selco. I like to think I have a little experience. But it’s always the things you don’t think about that come around and bite you. When I was a kid, a next door neighbor (a retired spook) told me, “Complete paranoia is perfect preparedness.” I didn’t understand then. Sometimes I still don’t. But as I get older, I get glimpses.
There’s so much to worry about and only so much time and resources. In the States, I had piles of stuff which I gave to friends – or sold. Down here in South America, the awareness is on a lower level. These people have been through so much, they don’t really talk about what they do or have in reserve. Probably wise. I’m still living day to day. Feel like a kid on the road again.April 3, 2014 at 10:52 pm #6672
