About Me

CURRENT MISSION

meeting new people around the earth and looking for adventures. i want to get bare foot and muddy and play my guitar

ABOUT ME

travel bum. i love long hitchhiking, bike, canoe kayak, and walking trips. anything sustainable. usually i travel alone but sometimes its nice to share the crazy times with friends. i have been on the road for about 12 years now and see no end to it in the future. Sometimes i am resting in one place for a bit and can host again but i am always planing new trips to come.

whats wrong with randomly breaking out in song while walking or riding a bike down the street?

things I enjoy... climbing trees harmonicas popcorn, humus, felafel. share everything vegetables, especially garlic spicy food space mud rooftops bare feet dirty pants clean hands sleeping in late staying up late being outside our beautiful forests, dont take them for granted dumpsterdiving, collective sustainable living riding my bike forever...14,000km in the last 2 years. check these out http://www.trashwiki.org , http://www.hitchwiki.org , bewelcome.org http://www.sharewiki.org , cold beer on hot days my canoe chilling in a hammock to laugh and hear laughing, make someone happy, make someone smile, good times are what life is about

PHILOSOPHY

lets work together. our future needs more bikes. water is precious. eat vegetables not animals. you don't have to wait for the light to turn green before you go. he who lives by the song dies by the road

YOU MAY ALREADY BE AN ANARCHIST! it's true. If your idea of healthy human relations is a dinner with friends, where everyone enjoys everyone else's company, responsibilities are divided up voluntarily and informally, and no one gives orders or sells anything, then you ARE an anarchist, plain and simple! The only question that remains is how you can arrange for more of your interactions to resemble this model. Whenever you act without waiting for instructions or official permission, you are an anarchist. Any time you bypass a ridiculous regulation when no one's looking, you are an anarchist. If you don't trust the government, the school system, Hollywood, or the management to know better then you when it comes to things that affect your life, that's anarchism too. And you are especially an anarchist when you come up with your own ideas,initiatives and solutions. Clearly, it's anarchism that keeps things working and interesting. If we waited for authorities and specialists and technicians to take care of everything, we would not only be in a world of trouble, but dreadfully bored,and boring,to boot. Today we live in that world of (dreadfully boring!) trouble precisely to the extent that we abdicate responsibility and control. Anarchism is naturally present in every healthy human being. It isn't necessarily about throwing bombs or wearing black masks, though you may have seen that on television (do you believe everything you see on television? THAT'S NOT ANARCHIST!!!) The root of anarchism is the simple impulse to do it yourself: everything else follows from this!
