366 Days



Yes it has been that long.
366 Days.
Dayum!!!!
What was I doin with meself?
What was David Bass Dancy up to?
All I can say is: "I have thought of this day for a long time"
During my hours long travels throughout Upstate New York I would often think about what My next post would be about.
But you need to understand
I have been a participant in the chaotic maelstrom that I routinely ducumented while living and surviving as a Freelance Journalist.
Have you ever seen a House with Deerskin siding?
I have.
Have you seen rural poverty up close?
Fuedal Lords in the Backcountry?
I have.
The choice between Gas and diapers is daunting when the closest Wal-Mart is eight miles away.
You Get it right?
This pliable, manipulatable populace is the backbone.
The Law?
To many, the courts and law enforcement are just simple symbols of Government. The sheriff doesn't bring by Deermeat or preserves, firewood, bullets...no ...he brings trouble.
I have been able to see, up close, rural poverty and, of course, Urban Poverty.
I have seen Hoarders on an epic scale.
America is Strange.
I am a Witness.
A humble observer.

Wow I want to show my family that hey, if you want to live like you are from the sticks, here have at it! Living a less then a mile away from the McMansions in the New Hartford area makes me roll my eyes when they start the yeee-hahs! So you wanna be a hardcore agricultural survivalist... I want to observe the following: Can those people who yodel the most obnoxious yee-haw can outlast the ones who plug their ears. Try hunting for survival and not for sport and show. That is the meat and potatoes of country songs, survival. Not who has the flashiest pick up truck. Just a small social experiment with who knows what really is up and who does not.
