It's been dry for the last several weeks, and unseasonably hot, with just some drizzle coming finally this morning. We are experiencing what they call a high-moderate drought. So I did not think we would get any puffballs this year. Or at least nothing worth trying to eat. But I got lucky and came across these while doing my daily hike. I just wanted to demonstrate a quick way to fry and eat these that I like to do.
I haven't thrown hawks seriously since I was a kid. Now I am a geezer. So, it's been a while, (30 years or so) therefore the terrible lack of control, inaccuracy, and overall bad throws from just about 11 yards away. Also, I didn't have a camera or tripod. So I was sticking my cheap Walmart phone in branches to try to get the shots. I'll do some practice and maybe make a video someday with better camera work and maybe something a little more interesting. After this, I ate a carp. That has nothing to do with anything. But it is in fact the truth.
I was at a local Halloween store with some family, where we discovered that they had the coolest thing ever. It's an aquarium, with skeletal remains of people, piranhas, and a shark. Watch until the third fade to see the shark attack the 'glass'. This was cool. Again, as always, crappy camera. Beware.
This video is kind of boring. But I uploaded anyway. We were camping the other night in a local State Park. My sister left some eggs out, and this skunk showed up to steal them. I got super close to it. And, it didn't spray me. Skunks are cool. Poor video quality is due to me being cheap. Later!
WARNING: FAKE VIDEO!! Sorry people, but this is fake. The kids wanted to do a scary bigfoot video so they could show their friends online, so we did. But this made me think: If we can take some poor quality footage of a dude in a ghillie suit walking out of a corn field, throw some scary music over top of it, add some narration to give it a creepy setup and back story, and do this all in about 10 minutes on a free video editor, then how many people claiming to have "evidence" are doing the same thing? How many people are making videos like this, but don't admit it is a setup? There are likely a lot. And some people have built quite a following on social media and video sharing sites with nothing but fake videos and stories. It's far too easy to do. And tempting. Oh well.
I've gotten a few of these scam calls this week and decided to go ahead and share it, just in case someone out there might be getting the same call and aren't sure if they should respond or not. Rest assured, this is not a legit call. If you get one like this, it is FAKE! Don't give in and let the criminal trash get your money.

(I mean AUDIO, not AUDO!)Tornado Warning. So naturally, we had to attempt to chase it in order to film it. Why?......because. That's why. It did escape in the end though. Location: Springfield to Northridge to Urbana, Ohio. NE, 40 MPH. The thing was outrunning us, so we never did film a touchdown, and I am not quite sure if this system ever did produce an actual full tornado. The news did say something about surveying damage that could be from either a tornado, or straight line winds if I read it correctly. So, maybe. Crappy Walmart phone too. My bad. Later, homeslices! #iWitness7
I was out at a local State Park eating plants because they are free. Also, wild edibles for the most part are much more nutritious than their farmed/injected/organically-modified/steroid-filled/pesticide-laced counterparts. Just be careful on identifying them and pay attention to the area you get them from. This video was made for no reason btw. I was foraging, and happened to have my crappy phone on me.
This video is for educational purposes. PLEASE always obey your local laws and exercise caution at all times. And if you are a criminal or terrorist of some type, please do not watch this video. Instead, take a long time to reconsider that whole breathing and living thing you are doing. It's really annoying.

I am an outdoors type dude who grew up hunting, fishing, trapping, snorkeling, making and using primitive weapons, etc. I love traditional archery the most. So I like to occasionally do videos about those things. On the other end of the spectrum, I am a hobby programmer, a hobby robotics nerd, and an old-school gamer. Video content can be anywhere in between, or even something random about my world travels or something. Don't expect ultra HD videos though. Sorry, but I don't see the point in spending a fortune on camera equipment unless I am making money with it, which I never intend to do. I make videos for fun.
