    Aboriginal Gatherer-Hunters (1939)

    Primal Fuel
    Hi All,

    I found this pic of hunter-gatherers' from 1939: http://imgur.com/Pv494

    I only hope I can be in as great shape when I'm as old as the man in the middle, it's remarkable.

    I am reading The Old Way: A Story of the First People by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas. It's about the Kalahari Bushmen before "civilization" destroyed their way of life. Maybe direct descendants of Lucy. Would call it "required reading" for anyone on paleo/primal.

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    lol As shown by the comments above, disagreements about age are another benefit of being Primal! "You're how old?! Unpossible!"

    I have a new site up and will soon be blogging at The Wayward Mind. (My journal is semi-retired at this point)

    That pic was taken in the late 1930's at Bathurst Island.

    I've been there fishing.

    Sadly, you don't see to many who look like that anymore.
