Hey Prime-Mates, So, I know you’re already down with the idea that the first humanoids had a rad diet and exercise regime. But did you also know that they were mad travellers? And when I say mad, I mean crazy, like wandering from Africa to Alaska kind of crazy. Sounds batshit insane, right? I mean why leave the fertile grounds of the African savannah to go off to the freezing cold of Alaska? Well, obvs, it’s cos that’s what we crazy cats called humans love to do. We’re built to move. We go where the wind takes us. To seek out the food. Explore. Find the nectar and suck the life out of that shit. And if that means trekking to Alaska, then that’s what we do, man. You see where I’m going with this, yeah? The Primal Guy is on the move!
Yep, I’m headed for new pastures. New horizons.
Places where they’ve never even heard my name. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to forget you guys. No way, no how. You know what? I’m actually gonna take you on my journey, thanks to the wonders of this thing they call the interweb. Now, I’ve gotta plan, and it’s going to get a little hairy, but you gotta stick with me okay? As the great man, Bob Dylan, once said, ‘Chaos has always been a friend of mine.’ Or, as the Primal Kid, Talia, would say, ‘Chaos has always been a BFF of mine.’ Peace out dudes.

Dear Prime-Timers, Okay, so don’t drop your phones when you hear this, but, I have news! I’ve been reading. I mean, I’m always digesting the latest and greatest in food and nutrition. But this was an actual book, by my home-boy Nassim Nicholas Taleb. That dude is like the Jesus of the new millennium. You know he predicted the big crash of 2008? Seriously. The guy’s a freak. Anyway, in his book, he goes back a few hundred years to when the first white dudes turned up in Australia and discovered this crazy looking bird. It was a swan, but it was BLACK! What the freak? The only swans they’d ever seen were WHITE. They couldn’t believe their freakin’ eyes. It was insane. Hectic. I mean, who’d have predicted it? But, that’s life, right? Shit happens, and we never see it coming. It’s so predictably unpredictable. Jobs, love, fire, floods, accidents, death – who knows what’s around the corner. All we know is that we don’t know what’s coming. And, boy, am I learning that. This trip is pushing me so far on the inside I can almost see my own a-hole, and it ain’t so pretty, even with an a-bomb diet. But here’s the thing – if you know that shit never quite goes how you want, you’re already ahead. If you’re quick and agile and strong, you can cope with any black swan that flies your way. Disasters aren’t the time to bunker down, they’re the time to get moving. You just gotta be ready to be brave, reach out, grab those wings and fly high.

How hard is it to be away from the people you love most in the world? I’ll tell you. It’s frickin’ hard. I miss being a family so bad it hurts. Like really hurts, in my gut. But it got me thinking. Why? I got food. I got water. I got people around me. But something’s missing. My family. But what makes us want to stick together? To commit, forever?
’Cause in the beginning, it wasn’t like that. It wasn’t like that at all. We were basically animals, after all, and it was all about the law of the jungle. The strongest dudes. The toughest. The meanest. They were the ones who got all the ladies and got to procreate with them. But something changed. The weaklings wised up. They figured out that if they had something to offer the females – like better food, or shelter – then the chicks would dig them more and – here’s the biggie – they’d stick with them.
Monogamy was born. It made, like, total sense, because now the mums also had a partner who’d be around to help out with the kids, instead of being out sewing his wild oats. And it was good for the tribe, ’cause kids could be hard work – couldn’t walk, couldn’t talk, couldn’t get their own food – but now there was this thing called a family, and people were co-operating and, you know where we’d be without co-operation and new generations of kids? Nowhere! Okay, so now it’s different. Now, there’s a million and one choices and distractions and it seems like it’s harder than ever to make a commitment and stick to it.
It’s not. It’s natural. It’s evolution. It’s how we got here.
Peace out, Ryan (AKA the Primal Guy)
