A new paradigm in scouting.

Derives, Hikes, Quests, Journeys and Walkabouts

Start by Walking
One of the most common forms of art collective or scout collective activities is that of walking around a place as an activity. Walks come in all shapes, sizes and forms. But every once in a while, scouts or artists will invent new ways of walking that completely rewrite the paradigm of walking activities.

The derive was originated by an art collective called Situationist International. They are mostly anarchists interested in redefining the way humans exist through the reworking of systems. One of their methods of doing so is called the derive. It is a form of walking that reroutes the city or urban space by constructing rules of movement, or purposefully placing walkers in unfamiliar spaces, so they must readjust and thus can experience a familiar city as if it were new, or if the space were indeed unfamiliar, a vertigonous sense of wonder was achieved.

A common practice in scouting is the hike. A hike is a rural activity, usually in the wilderness, mountains, woods, or even on formally set apart hiking paths. It is a great way to get out there and experience nature. Equipment ususally becomes important for hikes, becuase they are done in the wilderness. Hikers must often carry their own water or food. Hiking produces a sense of self-awareness and independence, and for some even a deep sense of being at one with nature.

Quests are a very special form of both hiking, the derive and traveling. Quests are initiated when there becomes a dire need for someone or a small band of people to venture off into the unknown to either collect something from an unknown realm or to return something that belongs in an unknown realm. Often times it is advisible to quest with a group. When a group of organisms decide to embark on a quest, that group is called a fellowship, and there are several ways that fellowships can be organized.

Journeys are introspective quests, usually without destinations. They can be anywhere from millions of light years in length to a simple vision or dream. Journeys are perhaps the most misunderstood of all movement oriented activity, and it takes a very learned journeyperson to explain the uniqueness of journeying.

Walkabouts are a type of movement in space that can be a quest, a journey, an expedition, or even a hunting party. The one thing that makes a walkabout unique though is that those on walkabout use a pyschogeographic pivot. That is, they are never lost, because of a telekenetic connection point they have at their home, which stays with them for the length of their walkabout.

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.

The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.


K guys thanks. Hope to hear your feedback alright? Bye :D

Online betting is just another rapidly growing diversion in the visual community. You will bet on the sport you choose through websites on the internet. All the details of betting are stated clearly on the site itself, including the possible amount that you may get if you'll win.

You like the Chargers because they are having a great season, prolific offense, strong defense and they are racking up wins. Since the San Diego offense has been clicking, you also think that a lot of points will be scored during this game. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
