Logbook 21 June 2018 – How to say hello at the camp sketch
Hello I’m Gork story sketch
Sketch and text by Frits Ahlefeldt ( FritsAhlefeldt.com )
Hikers are often strangers to each other and in unknown terrain. Sketching up ideas that makes it easier to relate

Crazy thing about the name is that it was just a name I randomly made up, at least that is what my consciousness told me – then I googled Gork, just to check if I had by coincidence hit something in some language unknown to me… and then I realized that GORK is a very well-known acronym for “Good-Only-Really-Knows” – First I thought about changing it to something else – then I thought, maybe that is not too far off from how we often feel when we meet strangers on our paths…
