Nature Heals-Pandemic 2020

by Ted Nugent

Global Chinese Virus Pandemic self-quarantine day 20, and all is well.

Well, maybe not all is actually all that well, but for those of us smart enough to have learned inescapable lessons from the past, as well as can be expected.

We certainly understand the suffering of our fellow man, especially those hard-hit families with loved ones in the throes of the virus. Our daily prayer regimen has up kicked exponentially and we certainly feel their pain.

In the not so pleasant or comfortable new normal, when all is said and done, life does indeed go on, and quality of life is in the eye of the beholder now more than ever.

In all honesty, very little if anything has changed in the day to day activities of the Nugent household.

We were already adequately prepared for the worst mother nature could throw at us, with intelligent supplies of food, water, medicines, fuel, guns, ammo, and of course that new gold standard commodity, toilet paper!

We have survived ice storms, blizzards, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, drought, riots, economic meltdown and panic in the streets, but we have never seen anything quite like this global catastrophe.

Watching closely the daily press conferences by this great president and the experts he has surrounded himself with, we take their knowledgeable advice and direction and do all we can to mitigate the spread of this deadly virus.

According to a few million smart people on my daily Facebook campfire, many Americans are improvising, adapting and overcoming to a great degree, and it appears hopeful that the peak of danger will pass soon.

Meanwhile, we are busy at SpiritWild Ranch living the life we have created for ourselves with nary a hitch.

I found a goldmine of morel mushrooms the other day while shed hunting to ad to a dozen or so nice antlers.

I keep busy checking my trapline every day to mitigate the vermin scourge, the whole time as if completely removed from the painful stories on the news each day.

Treating and grooming the array of food plots on our spring ground is good for the mind, body, spirit, and soul. Down to earth and grounded is good for you!

Add to those powerful healing powers of nature the never-ending bowhunting for exotics, hogs, and varmints, and I got just what the good doctor ordered.

There is always a fence to mend and feeders to repair and fill, drainages to clear and limbs to trim.

Exploring our wild grounds with our three amigo hounds Happy, Sadie and Coco provide the ultimate distraction to any and all negativity that otherwise exists.

And of course, lucky lucky me, I’ve got this arsenal of killer guitars to take me far, far away from anything that could possibly bother me. Musical journeys are total out of body escapes!

I have seen much evidence that many city folk are discovering the healing powers of nature in their newly aware need to get outside and re-assess their otherwise hectic lifestyles and resultant anxieties.

We are not out of the woods yet, (I don’t want to be out of my woods!!) and we have some very troubling and challenging times ahead.

Those of us who live the outdoor lifestyle should aggressively educate and remind our families and friends what we have known all along; that nature heals and if ever there was a time to go fishing, plant a garden, plant some trees, watch the starts, hike or get a bow and arrow, that time is now.

These are tangible remedies that I believe to be universal to mankind. Since our status quo paradigm has been basically shattered, why not review and question everything we have been doing forever and re-discover those simple things in life that will bring much healing during these trying times.

After all, it was the status quo that got us into this mess, so toss off the shackles of all things status quo and live every day like you mean it.

Nature heals, the time is now and the price is right.

Uncle Ted – Happy Birthday to Me!

Wow! That was quite the whirlwind funride these past flamethrowing, outrageous, crazyFUN 73 years, was it not! I’m surprised I survived the G-forces! On that lovely winter day, December 13, 1948 in the MotorCity energy storm, I launched full force into my American Dream and haven’t wasted any time looking back since, not once. Between…

Uncle Ted – Not All Deerhunting Is The Same

My binoculars confirmed the distant movement as a much-anticipated whitetail deer. Upon close examination, it was identified as a fawn buttonbuck of the year. Even in the historical hard pressured deerwoods of Michigan, everybody knows that these little boogers are considered to be the dumbest deer in the woods. And rightly so, for compared to…
