The Desert Adventure (Newt Unleashed)

Hello, and welcome to Newt Unleashed.  I have been making my way accross the country, and seeing things through a civilian eye.  I have to admit, it's cool to be a veteran, though.  Here is a video of some Chinese students I met right on the west side of the Nevada border:


Well, I bounced through Las Vegas, and went to the Grand Canyon.  There are pictures in another post.  But I met this cool chick named Christine at the Canyon, and we had a good conversation and I wish I had gotten more footage with her, since she's super cool, and also a fellow traveller.  But I got a little snippet:

Of course all my loyal readers know that the URL is HAZELNEWT.blogspot.com, not hazel THE newt.  Oh well, right?  Hopefully Christine gets to see this sometime, though.  Anyways, shout out to Christine, hope your travels went well.

Well, I camped at the Grand Canyon National Forest for a weekend:

Then, I took Saturday off, and just hung around and drank a few beers and relaxed.

I drove out on Monday I think, and went through Flagstaff.  Which was nice, but I needed to move on, so I randomly picked Tucson, and went there.
Here is my travel buddy, and maybe this is why the asian girls call me Panda.

This is a random video at the Canyon.

In Tucson, I recorded this love song, called She Wants To Dance:

I also have some videos with the people I have met in Tucson, which will be uploaded soon, and I will make a seperate post for them.  You should look forward to that, because that is some of the GREATEST parts of my travels.  Meeting new and awesome people has been an exciting adventure.  I've laughed, I've practically cried, I've learned, I've loved, I've made some lasting friendships, I can already tell.  And all from going out of my way, getting out of my bubble, and going places.  Right now I'm camping out, since it's free, and just finding ways to get money until my next paycheck comes through.  But I don't worry, man, and when you have other people around, you protect them, they protect you... It's great.  Alot of the people I meet are veterans too, and it isn't easy for them to get by sometimes.  Especially the disabled guys... You get disabled, and the VA will pay you, but often it makes it so you can't work, and you rely on the VA check.  Well, it's not enough to live comfortably, so these guys do what they have to, but somewhere, they experience more freedom than you or I ever really thought you could and barely have anything to your name.  Wait til my next post, when I introduce you to some of these people!

Until next time, Godspeed, and go with Peace.

My travelling took me to Vegas.  It was a big bright crowded city as I expected.  So I moved on.

Grand Canyon pictures.

These are some of the pictures I took at the grand canyon.

Paleo Diet Biblical

Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 1:19pm
It has come to my attention that this Paleo Diet which I have begun to embrace is not a brand new idea, but in fact ancient... besides the supposed "caveman" sustinence it implies. Remember the story of Daniel, Shadrach, Meahach, and Abednigo (Babylonian names for Hananiah, Meshael, and Azaria; Daniel's Babylonian pseudonym was Belteshazzar)? You can read about it in Daniel 1 - ESVBible.org http://www.esvbible.org/search/Daniel%2B1/ The Babylonian king recruited the best of the best of Hebrew youths to share in his royalty as high-class servants of the king. He would train them physically and mentally for three years, then select the best of them for these positions. Obviously, these four guys get chosen. But how? It all started with Daniel and his buddies choosing to "not defile themselves with the king's food and wine." Which made sense for them, being Hebrews in service of Babylon. But the choice that propelled them to their high stature was not simply supernatural blessing due to obedience to laws of their religion. It's true that the lion's share of their great fortune came as a direct result of their faith in the Lord. But what started it all? Their diet. The eunich in charge of them was on their side, but a bit worried when they requested none of the meat and wine and goodies the king had to offer, but instead asked for veggies and water and things which can be eaten without cooking. The eunich said that it would look bad on him, in a "you just got executed on the spot" kind of way, if they were to be unhealthy due to this diet. Daniel said "test it for 10 days, then re-evaluate." That sounded acceptable, so it was done. In ten days, they were more healthy, bright, strpng, and energetic than any of their peers. Not just because of some miracle, but because their diet gave their bodies no toxins or excess fat or carbs. After the training was complete and this diet was used, they were top shelf in every way imagineable. That is the potential of Paleo Dieting. I can only hope it works the same for me. I think it will help. I can already feel the specific effects of every individual food i ingest and metabolize. It's a bit trickier with diabetes to manage, too. But I have faith that there is something to all this.

The Great Embark

I thought about calling this the Great Escape.  But that seemed clichet.  In reality it feels about like an escape from the city of Socal.  I cannot wait to get awy from this state.  I'm sorry California... no offense, but you people suck dick! 

I guess being from the east coast, I am used to a higher quality of people.  Californians are disconnected from reality.  They say the east coast gets everything last, but i think it's the other way around.  Californians still have not heard of the concept of OTHER PEOPLE.  They are snobby.  They have their heads up their own asses.  They think the world owes them something.  Why i don't know.  Their cost of living is stupid, they overcrowd the coast,  they have leather skin from too much tanning.  They are not as important or cool as they think they are.  Whete I come from, if you do business with someone, they treat you like you are super important.  It's called CUSTOMER SERVICE, anither thing California hasn't gotten the memo on yet.  They treat you like you don't matter.  You are an inconvenience to THEM, if you want assistance.  "The customer is always right" does not apply in CA. 

Anyways, this is not about California.  That was  tangent... or a rant, as some of us call it.  The truth is I am leaving the service of the U.S. government (which, I can assure you from experience and insider knowledge, does not care about you, the citizen, nor does it have in mind your best interest), and I have no kids, wife, no home, no house, responsibilities... All I have is a future to step into, a life to begin.  I will drive through several states, on a several day long road-trip, and visiting friends along the way.  This will be awesome.  You have heard the saying "it is not the destination that matters, but the journey."  I feel like that is what I am going to experience.  I am more excited about the travels that I will be embarking upon than I am about where I will end up.  So wish me luck on this trip.  It is a dream come true to be able to take off on a journey/road trip like this and see the sights and enjoy the freedom to go where I want and do what I want.  So farewell California, and stuff it.  Hello America, here I come.

Paleo-Diet Day 1

Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 2:15am CA

I began the Paleo-Diet today as according to http://www.cavemanpower.com/food/caveman_power_diet.html. My first tall glass of water first thing in the morning. I had normal blood-glucose, so I took my 40 units of 24 hour insulin. After that I bought a can of mixed nuts (cashews, almonds, macadamia), and some bananas. Also I cheated a bit and got a small coffee to sip on through the day. But I snacked on about 8-10 servings of nuts and 4 bananas through the day. Also I worked out around 5pm for about an hour, afterwards drinking a protein shake (which may be cheating. But I'm trying to build muscle), and later chowed down on a decent dinner of steak and potatoes and rice and veggies. Honestly, I feel great. I think it helped me have energy and not feel the need to stop to eat. Which is amazing, especially as a diabetic. Because I don't mind not stopping to stuff my face. I went all day without a meal. Just nuts and fruit. I felt more productive, not confined to meal-times. I feel good about it. I found myself pacing and thinking and talking... I was energetic. Thanks, Board of Nutrition, for trying to indict that guy for blogging about his experience with the Paleo-Diet... now I know that it could cure diabetes. Now I'm going to do the same thing he did. Lol @ greedy fascist self-interest-serving government agency. Bite me!
