Black Belt Camping
Join Outdoor Expert and Anthropological Writer John Elden Gibbons in this beginner-to-expert camping how-to guide.
John has made it his mission to introduce 100,000 people to the out of doors and,
by so doing, give them the ability to live deliberately.
This mission is inspired by the works of Henry David Thoreau quoted here,
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately.”
John’s devotion to nature and wilderness skills was further developed
at the side of his grandfather, Euell T. Gibbons, whose life works and writings
have been likened to Thoreau. Euell wrote. “My love affair with nature is so
deep that I am not satisfied with being a mere onlooker, or nature tourist.
I crave a more real and meaningful relationship. The spicy teas and tasty delicacies
I prepare from wild ingredients are the bread and wine in which
I have communion and fellowship with nature, and with the Author of that nature.”
