Fire will not be provided, however you may make one from whatever you find.

The liability waiver is going to be a beast...




Are liability waivers paleo?

The space would be expensive, but the equipment costs would be pretty minimal. How much are wood and stone spears going for these days? I'll have to get in touch with Bill Henniger and see if we can work something out.

Im still in the brainstorming phase, but I think I'm on to something.

P.S.
If you don't like to be naked then you are welcome to wear a loincloth fashioned from your first kill on your second visit.
I will join your affiliate even if it costs $500 a month. Clearly, it is superior because it is paleo.

WOD idea: Tape a $20 to the side of the alpha male in a wolfpack and see who can rob the wolf quickest without being maimed. Winner gets $20 and can eat the animal they catch, but only after OHS the carcass 15 times.

That's as paleo as paleo can get.

The only scaling that is paleo is to go after a weaker animal.

Do or do not. There is no try.

As long as there isn't a stupid timer going off every 10 or 20 seconds I'm down.

That is unpaleo to the point of lunacy. Tape? Money? OHSs? Surely you jest sir.

PSHAW. African wildlife is amateur, it's not paleo without dinosaurs. Poser!

Re: Do not enter this thread its not wfs

*sigh* So much to learn young one...

Quote:
Mes·o·zo·ic   [mez-uh-zoh-ik, mes-, mee-zuh-, -suh-] Show IPA Geology
adjective
1.
noting or pertaining to an era occurring between 230 and 65 million years ago, characterized by the appearance of flowering plants and by the appearance and extinction of dinosaurs.
Quote:
Pa·le·o·lith·ic   [pey-lee-uh-lith-ik or, especially Brit., pal-ee-] Show IPA
adjective
( sometimes lowercase ) Anthropology . of, pertaining to, or characteristic of the cultures of the late Pliocene and the Pleistocene epochs, or early phase of the Stone Age, which appeared first in Africa and are marked by the steady development of stone tools and later antler and bone artifacts, engravings on bone and stone, sculpted figures, and paintings and engravings on the walls of caves and rock-shelters: usually divided into three periods (Lower Paleolithic, c2,000,000–c200,000 b.c., Middle Paleolithic, c150,000–c40,000 b.c., Upper Paleolithic, c40,000–c10,000 b.c. ).
Clearly your statement could never possibly happen, hence dinosaurs, while awesome, are NOT PALEO!!

Perhaps I should contact HQ and see if we can work out some way for me to put on a paleo cert so everyone can be more informed.

Certifications are paleo right?
