Tighten the Chinstrap on Your Party Hat

This article crushes too much for a description.

This is how it starts, the building of a strong nation.

LaBEARday In The Rockies

Driving through the (mostly) unburnt forest of central Colorado, discussing whether or not Yak milk would make a good Latte, the truck was alight with laughter and music. This was to be a grand weekend, the best LaBEARday yet. The truck-bed was full of coolers stocked with ice, various marinated meats, cheeses, and cool beverages, which to be sure would add to the vehicle’s ability to grip the winding country roads making our way up, up the mountain. 

Our Sleuth had rented a grand lodge on a hillside overlooking a sparsely populated ski town on the edge of Lake Granby. In the distance towards the west, it looked as if the top of a volcano had blown off the top of a mountain.  Smoke billowed from the top as we pulled up to the cabin. However, not a doubt or fear entered our mind as we knew the smoke would not dampen our weekend of canoeing, hiking, and meals around a large table. 


“Trust the Pan”

The idea for this weekend is credited, by all accounts, to the lady bears in our group. Spicy Sar Bear, Sarah Bear, Potters Garden Bear, and Zezzie Bear coordinated the lodging, and planned the meals. The men pitched in picking up the food, drinks, and accompanying necessities at various grocery stores. Some of the bears brought amazing vegetables from their gardens, and BearNaked Ben even made items crafted from braided 550 Paracord. The teamwork in putting this together was almost as epic as when Louis met Clark. We were a few short as not everyone in our crew was able to make it to this outing but I just want you to know that in your honor, I and everyone else ate an extra serving of Sarah Bear’s amazing “Trust the Pan” lasagna.

Upon arriving at the BearBNB, my daughter went to work cooking up a triple batch of sourdough pretzel bites which she had prepared earlier that morning. As she set the table, the Top Gun soundtrack blared from the overhead speakers. Claws were cracked open, and many hugs went around as everyone began to arrive.  Cheers were cheered, and at over 8,200 ft above sea level I dare say our high fives were much higher than any other ‘fives’ on the continent that day. 

Later on while seated around the fire, RiffinBear broke out the guitar and proceeded to throw pleasing sound grenades at our ear holes with some well known guitar riffs. The guitar is fast becoming a mainstay at many an Unbearables gathering. I too partook in the melodious festivity and tried my hand at the Indian Wood Flute while Blonde Genius Bear soothed us with the melodic Hand Pan.

‘Twas to be a full moon that evening, and not an owl was in sight. Not even a middle aged bulldog whose bark, worse than his bite”

More than half of all bear meetups have taken place on a full moon (I’m not verifying that claim) or “La Luna” as our Osos Españos prefer to say. It is rumored that this is due to the higher intelligence and resourcefulness common in our community. As you’re well aware, a full moon ads 50 lumens of ambient outdoor lighting which reduces the number of tiki torches needed to have an optimum book burning experience or an evening round of backyard golf. But I digress.

“Gravy was ladled, logos flowed like wine, and strong bonds were forged.”

By the end of the first evening together, one of our group had free climbed a ski lift (no doubt in search of honey or a bramble of blackberries), and my daughter and I had demonstrated on the gas stove how a boiling soda can of water can crush itself when thrown into an ice bath. Gravy was ladled, logos flowed like wine, and strong bonds were forged. So it goes on a typical weekend for the bears, literally sleuthing and crushing.

Besides canoeing and hiking to a waterfall, we hadn’t felt the need to schedule too many events. I of course had with me throwing knives, rope for knot tying classes, and a belt sander we could fix together if we got bored. None of these items got much attention however, because time flew as we just sat around the fireplace talking and laughing until the wee hours of the night.

The next day after a hearty breakfast and being spoiled with a goat milk latte prepared by Blonde Genius Bear, we were fully refreshed and looking forward to a hike in the cool mountain air. Tartan Bear had taken the time to reserve a couple canoes and kayaks. That was a great idea. And Twelth Hour Bear suggested we hike to a spring fed waterfall nearby. To be out of the city together with likeminded legends was well needed by all. I’d heard more than once that weekend, how many of us couldn’t imagine what they’d do with their time without a blessed group of loving individuals such as ours. I know many of you also feel the same way, and for those that haven’t experienced it yet, there couldn’t be a better time than now.

This is how it starts, the building of a strong nation. If you’re a crusher, if you’d like to build Bearships and design castles, Beartaria welcomes all crushers. Or even if you just want to grow the crops and milk the goats that feed the builders and the rock levitators, it’s time. It’s time to tighten down the chin strap on your party hat and pull on your work boots. So if you haven’t already, sign up at bearvibe.com, thegreatbeartrail.com, bearsaloon.com . From there, you can check out the Bear Maps and begin talking to others in your area.

Onward friends.

If you have any stories, great or small you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them! Email them to events@beartariatimes.com and make sure to let us know if there are going to be any future events you’d like to promote!

Dedicated to the rocky mountain unbearables. Thank you for embracing me and being a blessing to my family with your kindness, love, and cheer.

We are excited to see this announcement as these speakers have so much value that can be shared. We are expecting to hear more about the festival schedule, activities and musicians next week. Stay tuned for exclusive reporting!

Speaking at the first ever Beartaria Times National Festival:

Christopher Gardner


Christopher was Broward County Scholar-Athlete of the year 1993. He was awarded an American Express internship at 17 and became a Four-year Starter at MSU from 1994-97. He later completed a Practicum for Cal-Earth University in 2008 as a certified Super Adobe Tech. Christopher created the world’s first reciprocal dormer and truss. Christopher is a serial entrepreneur with a widely diverse skillset and knowledge base. He owns five businesses and continues to develop new projects and provide more value to the world.

Mr. Permie Bear


Adam Stevens, aka Mr. Permie Bear, does about everything that strikes his fancy, many of those things simultaneously. He is a former stockbroker specializing in international securities and day trader services. After his trading days were done, he began a career in banking and eventually became a commercial lender before he retired from finance as a whole. He is a graduate of the Oregon Banker’s Association Executive Development Program. Finally, he left finance to pursue a life closer to the land and things that matter, such as raising children. He is a Certified Permaculture Designer, dairyman, vegetable farmer, construction worker, consultant, seed salesman, occasional sawyer, and aspiring jack-of-every-possible-trade-under-the-sun. He is co-founder of Ozark Legacy Contracting and co-founder of Grateful Harvest Seed Company. He and his wife also operate Piney Creek Farm in the Missouri Ozarks. He dreams of creating a place where people can learn about and interact with permaculture and regenerative farming systems of all kinds and then use what they learn to create a more resilient and fulfilling life on any scale they choose. He will be speaking about creating a rich life in a world seemingly set on bland mediocrity.

Classical Learner Bear


Brett Pike, aka Classical Learner Bear, is the founder of the Classical Learner Homeschooling Company and Homeschools Connected. He is the author of the “Cubs to Bears” children’s book series and holds a bachelor’s degree in history education and a master’s degree in special education. He will be discussing the hidden lessons of public school and how parents can educate their children to grow into free and independent adults.

Anchor Bear


Anchor Bear is a multi-instrumentalist producer who has played in touring bands selling out the House of Blues and other venues throughout the Midwest, including being placed on the Vans Warped Tour in select locations. He also has recorded with top producers to gain industry insight into mixing and mastering techniques.

Anchor Bear is now running his own recording studio, Anchor Tones, where he is the head producer. He has created many tracks for the Bear community and worked with Bears on documentary compositions and voiceovers.

Bolar Bear


Bolar Bear is a Field Manager and Leader at a Fortune 500 company. He leads the business, operations, and team of 100+ Million. He has degrees, training, awards, etc., and he doesn’t consider them accomplishments that matter. He would tell you that his true accomplishments are being a Husband, Father, provider, and man of God actively pursuing his relationship with his creator. Knowing enough to know that he is a work in progress, a Truth seeker, actively seeking real-life skills, and Bear. Putting one foot in front of the other, “just trying” to walk the narrow path.

WildMedBear


Patrick Norton, aka WildMedBear, is the Owner and Lead Instructor of ARTOS Survival and a Former federal wildland firefighter and Urban and wilderness EMT. He is a Certified medical instructor, a graduate of the wilderness field instructor program, and a former instructor at the prestigious Thomas Coyne Survival School. He has led and conducted courses from Southern California survival skills and wilderness medical courses to knife-only, full-immersion, week-long field courses in the Alaskan boreal. He will discuss urban/wilderness survival, preparedness, and emergency medicine for the lay responder.

PeacemakerBear


In his personal journey, his interest in wellbeing has been a cardinal thought, from the practice and study of yoga, bodywork, breath work, Light and sound healing work, and generally a lifelong interest in self, God, and Jesus. Also, as a musician performing music styles from Kirtan and Gospel to Rock & Roll, mainly as a drummer, while playing percussion, congas, wood flutes, keyboards, and recently, dancing around with a guitar in hand.
Music and healing have taken him halfway across this Earth Realm, and in these travels, he has sat with many teachers and students, listening to wisdom thousands of years old, handed down orally and through ancient writings. This is where the first “Pearls of Wisdom” regarding breath work crossed his path. For over 30 years, teachers and ancient writings regarding breathing crossed his path, and in his ignorance, he would say, hmmm, this sounds interesting, but the ancient writings and wisdom seem a bit esoteric, and what could these ancients know about anything we are dealing with in today’s world.
There was no “Scientific” proof, just the words of the ancient gurus and healers so, he took it all with a grain of salt yet, he did walk around teaching and inspiring people about the importance of breath work while not really understanding how or why these wisdoms work. Then almost two years ago, that changed. Scientific evidence emerged, and the results of breath work have been measured, documented, and shared. Something clicked in his understanding of the healing potential of a focused effort to breathe your body into wellness. He would love to inspire all to understand the value of breath work.
