Beartaria

Kick off your Muck boots and throw on an Anchor Bear record because its time to crush. We’re going on a journey down a winding path to the Cave of Crush where we’ll span the Chasm of Krunk and destroy the Dragon of Despair. Afterwards we’ll circle up around the Beartarian Round Table and regale one another with our stories of legendary acts and moments of hilarity. To start off the regaling, I am going to highlight some members of our tribe that consistently go above and beyond.

This is my 7 Ways To Crushday, where I will highlight 7 Bears who you may not be aware of and yet are building Beartaria in their unique manner. I hope they inspire you as they do me. This is of course not an exhaustive list, and is written in no particular order. If you’d like to send in stories of other legends who deserve recognition, email us at events@beartariatimes.com or crushing@beartariatimes.com. Without further ado, let us doff our hats and lift our trumpets in salute to those who are leading and contributing in epic fashion.

Busy as a Bear

First up is Busy Bee Bear. She has been busy setting up a book club in the Shebears group at Bearvibe.com. With the help of other amazing Bearettes like BloomerBearnBama, the book club has featured works like ‘Keys to the Kingdom’ and ‘The Queen’s Codd.’ In true Beartarian fashion, the ladies in that group are elevating their minds and using that energy to bless their families. It’s a lovely thing to see. If you are a lady bear and would like to see what they’re up to you can connect on https://bearvibe.com/groups/59.

Tip the Piano Man

If you haven’t heard of Unofficial Bear yet, then put down that daggone lollipop and get on over to Dlive on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday at 5pm PST. This legend is innovating the music stream game. His fingers may or may not literally be on fire as he plays Liszt’s ‘Sospiro’ on his Yamaha keyboard. This High Beartarian Virtuoso became inspired to the point to losing sleep one evening. Unable to sleep, he decided to weave the melodies in his head into a fantastic work of art. And over the last few months we’re all anxiously waiting for him to name it. This song and other amazing works are made even more enjoyable by his peaceful visualizations on the screen and the friendliness in the saloon. Stop in and throw some lemons his way. You won’t regret it.

Zezzie Approaches! What Shall We Do?

“There’s nothing left to do but flourish.”

_ZezzieBear

When you have a grabbly day job and refuse to cower and shrivel but instead become a legendary community builder, your name might be Zezzie Bear. This epic Bearette has helped others bring the Rocky Mountain Bears up to a staggering 60 members and counting. Her effort has inspired others to reach out and bring more valued friends and future legends into the group. This along with constantly showing up and being a positive voice in the Dlive Big Bear streams and other community live streams and group chats make you wonder how she has time to fit in her regular day job. I for one am incredibly grateful and have gained so much from the hard work that Zezzie Bear has put into building our community. See what she’s up to at our Beartaria Times App @zezziebear I proffer a bear salute and thank you for your service. 🐻7

Pass the Ladle

“I’m a glorified ethernet cable, but when streams are hard to get or people are in need of gravy, I try to make them available”

_ WD41 Bear

You may be familiar with WD40. Every useful man had better be aware of the useful fish-based (yes fish-based) elixir of mechanical lube. But what this community needs more than to stop a squeaky hinge, is to spray on a healthy coat of logos. To help with hard to find Big Bear videos, we need WD41 Bear. This 46 y/o Scottish engineer legend is parked up the highlands somewhere and re-streams Owen, Jimbob, and others on his Dlive and his Bitchute channels on the regs. Show him some love and bury him in lemons.

Hanging With the Bears

“What originally started as a way to connect on a more personal level has evolved into a real community building tool. It’s been a great experience so far, and I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes.”

_Robear

This year, Robear felt God put it in his heart to start a Bear’s Interview channel and introduce the world to all kinds of amazing folks with incredible stories. We got to see Deep Blue Sea Bear’s work training oilfield sailors to put out boat fires, Hogfish Sniper Bear’s wife’s pregnant belly, Stuntman Bear’s jolly English face, and the legendary Poppa J Bear’s epic headband. Their stories are also interesting, relatable, and just show how wide and truly diverse this community is. Three Cheers for Robear! For now he’s still available on IG as @hangingwiththebears, or on Beartaria Times App @robear. Stay tuned for more greatness.

LEGION

“The New Patriarchs”

_Legionnairebear

Hail Legion! 2020 also brought the Legion to the bears. Legionnaire Bear has men all across the Earth getting up before 5 am (LST), maxing out on pushups, detoxing off of social media and abstaining from all the serious vices for 30 days. This is helping strengthen resolve, cultivate discipline, and really raise the bar for those who want to crush. The Legion isn’t for the weak or faint of heart. But if you’re committed, you will see a noticeable positive change. Legionnaire Bear himself quit smoking, and now looks 20 years younger could it be, allegedly? Check him out on Beartaria Times App as @legionnairebear and prepare yourself for greatness.

Johnny Appleseed was an Amateur

“Seed saving has brought me a deeper appreciation of “be fruitful and multiply”

_Copper Bear

You can’t build an epic civilization on an empty stomach. And you can’t get any better food than what’s grown in Beartaria. Copper Bear has been hard at work preserving and sharing the seeds that will ensure these gardens never run out of the produce that is making us stronger, healthier, and happier. She has a scientific process where she calculates the germination rate and ensures her seeds are of the highest quality. She is working on setting up a website but for now check out her work on Beartaria Times @copperbear. She recently also started a “Beartarian Seed Ambassador” program. “Beartaria Seed Savers are seeds saved from my garden and previously purchased heirlooms. I have seeds for new gardeners and seeds for ambassadors who would like to take on a stewardship role to collect seeds and send some back for redistribution.” For details email copperbearette@gmail.com.

Follow her on Beartaria Times App @copperbear

Especially for the bears who’ve sought out bear meetups, private message groups on Instagram, Telegram, etc, this has been a fantastic year. The real game changer is the Beartaria Times App where you will see the next level of community taking form. This year really showed us the power of our commonwealth. I’ve seen new bears that pop in to our group and show up to help another member move, or assemble a timber green house. I’ve seen people that need a place to stay find shelter with trusted bears. The culture we’re preserving here is truly amazing, and we’re just getting started. We have everything we need to begin working on our dreams. If you have any stories of legendary bears you’d like to have highlighted, we’d love to hear about them! Email the written work (a short article) and any photos to Crushing@BeartariaTimes.com or events@beartariatimes.com. Until next time, Keep Crushing, and may the Creator of All Things bless your homestead with a flood of gravy, goat milk, and good cheer.

What to Expect in Our Second Issue of the Beartaria Times Magazine

Published

on

We are excited to announce the second issue of The Beartaria Times magazine! This second installment brings together community members from different backgrounds and experiences to share tutorials, knowledge, inspiration, and resources that we know our community will love and benefit from for years to come. We have compiled articles from the legends of Beartaria to build a catalog of information that will inform and inspire.

Some of the topics you can expect in this issue will include an intro to HAM Radio from the one and only Falcor. Mr. Permie Bear runs down ten ways to incorporate permaculture philosophy in your garden or homestead. The seeds of creation are sown in a piece by BearBrandt that takes you through the artistic design process. And Artos Survival’s, WildMedBear gives us ten Wilderness Survival Essentials.

This issue includes an article from Amy on Scratch Made Ravioli

Big Sage Bear and Bolar Bear give us some insight into planting metaphorical seeds in their lives. While Orthodox Builder Bear lends some wisdom on how we can all benefit from continuing to do business with Babylon. And there is so much more!

Like before, this magazine will be a limited run based on the pre-order numbers. We are happy to have lowered our pre-order cost to $24 per magazine, and we reduced the Canada shipping cost to $9 instead of $15. For total transparency in sharing our goals, some magazines of similar physical quality sell for $12-$15 but print millions of copies. We believe we can begin to get our price more competitive if we sell around 10,000 copies. By supporting our magazine and pre-orders, you help us continue to lower the cost. We would rather sell many magazines at a low price and get good information out there!

We want to thank all of our contributors for making this another fantastic issue!

You can still pre-order a copy before Friday, April 29, at 9 pm PST.

The future is bright for The Legends of Beartaria!

Until next time, Keep Crushing!

Onward!

Sincerely,

– The Beartaria Times

The Béara Clann – Irish Bears July Camp Trip

Published

on

Our Story Begins

The following is an account of twenty-three legends that assembled at a campground in the Beara Peninsula of County Kerry, Ireland, in the first weekend of July 2021.  This is the story of the first Béara Clann camp trip.

Our story begins on Thursday, the first of July.  Kingdom Bear and his wife, Kerry Moma Bear, arrived at the campground to claim our corner of the camp.  Kingdom Bear, an avid camper, is also a veteran of the printing industry.  He brought with him a few surprises he’d made for the group, including a Béara Clann banner and flag.  With banner and flag in place, Kingdom Bear was ready to welcome the other members they arrived.

 

Béara Clann Assemble

Friday morning, members of the Béara Clann, the Irish Unbearables, began their journey from all corners of Ireland to the campground in County Kerry.  By the afternoon, most of the group had made their appearance.

Upon arriving, the Clansfolk were warmly greeted by the Béara banner and flag marking our little settlement.  There, we found a fire pit surrounded by tents on all sides.  Next to that, a small building for shelter from rain.

Kingdom Bear and Óbéara Bear welcomed the Friday arrivals with smiles and open arms.  Everyone joined in to help each other build their tents.  After setting up and a quick trip to a nearby village to stock up on food and supplies, everyone was settled in for the evening.

It was like old friends having a reunion, though this was the first time many of us were meeting in the real physical world that exists beyond the borders of the digital realm.  Handshakes, hugs, smiles and stories being shared were in abundance.

It was time to build a fire before nightfall.  A few bears spotted a huge broken tree limb and with teamwork, removed it from the tree with bare hands.  Then they began to break it down to smaller pieces using various saws and axes.  Everyone participated in a group effort.  As one got tired, another bear stepped up and continued the sawing.  This was also a great opportunity to teach the younger generation how to chop wood.  The Paddy Glassman Bear instructed Green Bear’s sons, Strummer Bear and Pickle Bear, how to chop up some firewood.

The positive vibes continued into the evening hours, as members gathered round the fire to tell stories, crack jokes and share their various interesting theories about this realm we call Earth.

 

The Fellowship of the Clann

Saturday morning saw the arrival of several more members, completing our gathering of these Irish Beartarians.

That afternoon, several members embarked on a journey to hike to a hilltop where an ancient stone circle stands.  The group admired the elevated view while contemplating what the ancient people of this land had known to construct such a site.  After visiting this ancient place, some of the braver ones took a dip in the chilly waters of a nearby lake.

Once everyone was back at camp, the Béara Clann’s Minister of Enthusiasm, Brayvy Bear, presented each of the children in the group with a gift bag.  The amazing Kingdom Bear and Kerry Moma Bear put together these lovely gift bags that included things like crayons, coloring book, bubbles and toys.  The Béara Clann children were most pleased.

It was steadily raining that evening, so we all gathered under that nearby shelter for a dinnertime BBQ.  Spirits were high as we shared stories and crafted jokes.  There was an abundance of good cheer.

After dinner, Brayvy Bear presented all of the adults with a souvenir Béara Clann mug that he and Kingdom Bear had made for the group members.  To mark the occasion, Brayvy Bear also presented to the group a bottle of locally crafted Beara Irish Whiskey, pouring a little into each mug and proposing a toast to the Clann.

The “craic”, as the Irish call it (stories, jokes and laughs), continued into the late night hours.

 

Making Our Own

Sunday morning, the group screen printed t-shirts with the Béara Clann logo.  Each member had brought with them the shirts they wanted printed.  Kingdom Bear set up a station in the shelter area to do the printing.  As mentioned earlier, he’s a veteran of the printing industry, so he volunteered to man the screen printing station.  Brayvy Bear, always eager to help, stepped up to assist him.  The end result was beautiful, each member going home with a freshly printed Béara souvenir t-shirt.

After printing t-shirts, Poppa J Bear hosted a livestream for Instagram.  The stream included a tour of the camp site and short interviews with several of the folk.  It was a great way to capture and showcase the energy of the trip.

Next, everyone gathered in front of the shelter for a group photo.  ConspiraBee Bear, an avid photographer who had been photographing the entire weekend of events captured the group photo of us.

 

Further Exploration

Some members packed up to head home after the group photo.  The remaining members embarked on an expedition to see a famous secluded waterfall and lake not far from where we were situated.

The scenery at this location was epic, like something you would see on a postcard.  Passing through fields of sheep, you encounter the waterfall.  After a few photos were taken there, we proceeded to trek up the steep trail towards the lake.  At the lake, several in the party decided to again take a dip in the water.  The Buzz Wrecker Bear, Rua Bear, The Paddy Glassman Bear, Eire Bear and Defender Bear’s girlfriend all went for a swim, those brave souls.

Once back at camp, the men set up a friendly axe throwing competition.  Logs were stacked for a target and the each man took turns throwing the axe.  Much fun was had, so much so that axe throwing will be a featured event at all future camp trips.

 

Onward to Béara!

That night, as the rain had ended, we all gathered round the fire again.  Future plans were discussed, including another camping trip, as well as the proposed formation of the Beartarian Horticultural Society.

The common thread that tied this weekend camp trip together was teamwork and community building.  Each member of the Clann lending a hand to help another.

It was so good to see everyone get along so well, to see our children playing together in nature.  To watch the initially hesitant and wary wives and girlfriends go from polite conversation to genuine warmth and good natured joking, now eager to be a part of this wonderful group.  This is what community building is all about.

The friendships formed, friendships reinforced and memories made at this July camp trip will last a lifetime.  We, the Béara Clann of Irish Unbearables, are a young group, still growing and learning as we go, yet we show much promise of big things to come in the future!

On Monday morning, it was decided that we would all meet here again for the second weekend of August.

To be continued…
