A month in the woods - the day before

My friend Robert has decided to move into the woods for a month.

It's not a camping trip, or a long hike. He's gainfully employed and will be working the whole time. But one lease just ended, and before he signs another, he's decided to fulfill a lifelong dream--seeing what it would be like to live outdoors.

I've known Robert since the first grade--about a million years ago. He's always been a serious outdoorsman, and loves the wild more than a soft bed.

He's texting me everyday to document his experience. I'll be posting his texts here. Here's the first one:

It's official...tomorrow I'm signing a one-month lease with mother nature...and the creator of the universe is my landlord.
