I often don’t post on this site, but I think it is important to check in every so often.
As you can imagine, 2020 has been an interesting year. There have also been many changes on the blog and in my own life.
I got an email recently regarding a previous post about the Wilde Advice store. Well, it was taking items over a month to ship. Due to the times as well as our economy, I decided to pull the site down. Mainly because I felt terrible about how long everything was taking to ship.
The interesting part is that a few days ago, it being Prime day and all, I ordered something small from Amazon. I was shocked to find out it is going to take about a week to receive my item.
I messaged a few friends that also purchased items on Amazon’s Prime Day, and they had similar situations. I guess Prime doesn’t have two-day shipping anymore? It seems very odd, and we’ll see what happens with that.
Feel free to let me know if you would be interested in me reviving my own store. I imagine the shipping would go back to the 2-4 weeks, but can’t hurt to try.
With everything considered, I figured I would rather focus on my blog, which is called Wilde Escape, and you should check it out! There is some good information there, but I’m biased, and quite a few product reviews.
I also decided to combine Wilde Escape and Emergency Supplies and Ideas. If you read my previous blog, I mentioned them both. I started writing a lot on Wilde Escape, but not much on the Emergency Supplies one. Check it out and let me know what you think. I would appreciate it!
Starting A Side Business
To finish up 2020, I had a few friends ask me how I built Wilde Escape. I did my best to explain it, but there were some trial and error on both parts.
This was during the lockdown, so it was mainly with live online video.
Which got me thinking, and later deciding to start another blog! This one is all about helping people start their own businesses. It’s still in the early stages and if you want information about it, let me know. I’d be more than willing to share it with you.
What About You?
So to finish and wrap this up, how has your year been? Have you been able to get outside ort of adventure?
It’s been interesting to see so many people out and about these days. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people camping, biking, and going to our National Parks.
I think that is amazing but want to throw out there, respect these places. I was so sad to see what was going on in Zion, Bryce, and Capitol Reef National Parks. People are destroying these amazing areas, and we need to help put a stop to it.
I will get off my soapbox. I think it’s fantastic that people are getting out and exploring the “local” areas in this amazing world.
Just remember the leave no trace principles, and we will all be able to appreciate these sites for many generations.
This is a quick blog, and thanks for checking in. Let me know in the comments below on what you have been up to.
Also, I would love to hear what you would like to read or learn about. The site is Wilde Advantage and is geared toward outdoor activities. So, let me know, and I will make it happen.
If you want to know what I’ve been up to, gear reviews, fun reads, and more, don’t forget to check out the Wilde Escape.
