As long as our manhood doesn’t suppress women!
I was a little lost tonight, wandering a bit in the abyss of comfort. And then I hung out with my dad and started reading Adam’s Return. And then I found this. And then I read Scott’s blog. Seth and Scott (and Richard) thank you, I am filled now. And drained. Tonight, I feel like I can’t wait to die (the 1st time; the 2nd time I’m not concerned about). Yeah, I’m looking forward to it.
I hope you get a taste of what you’re looking for on Lost Creek.
Hold the fort Seth,
You are a wonderful person! It is not about the sex, it is the quality of the person. In the American culture, we are so worried about the roles. After 25+ years with the same man, Stew and I have learned to share ideas, and to build on the common goal of the love of Christ one step at a time. I have been to lost creek as a teen to win a national championship…..my soon to be husband waited at home for me to have my 15 minutes of fame and to come home 25 years later as a daughter of Christ. We all grow tired of leading the pack and I pray that you will come home refreshed! I did. Thanks to you.
Blessing to you my friend and peace on your journey……..
The most intense journeys and treks are the ones through the crevices of our own hearts.
By the way, a good book on what has become this timely topic is: “A Dangerous Book for Boys”.
I know the adventures my son Sam and I have in life were important particularly in an estrogen filled home. 🙂
don’t you hate backpacking? hope you have fun, glad you always told us to look for guys who know things about being masculine. love you.
Thanks for the book recommendation. I’ve read the reviews and it looks great. I’m going to buy it.
For a moment there I thought this was a direct quote from “Wild at Heart” or that I was reading John Elderidge’s site in the feed reader. I may not be a guy but I am surrounded by men who are struggling with this very thing and am always glad when God draws them towards true masculinity and the peace that comes with it. Go you!
I agree that it can be really beneficial for guys to “get out”. I love Etheridge’s book, Wild at Heart.
I’ve worked at the Deer Creek Christian Camp before which is only a few miles from the north side of the Lost Creek Wilderness (Bailey, CO). That’s a beautiful area. I find the altitude to be annoying though, I think it’s about 8,000 feet. Camp Id-Ra-Ha-Je is (short for I’d Rather Have Jesus) is located right outside Bailey too.
