To do and go where my gut tells me.
I live on a small farm in rural Northern Wisconsin. There's lots to do and you won't go hungry if you stay here. After a long bout of nomadic-ism I'm absolutely grounded and committed to this piece of land. Come check it out, I'll be here, that's for sure! We're not too far away from Duluth, MN. We are a short bike ride away from an amazing beach on lake Superior...Chickens, ducks, turkeys, pigs, cats, goats, and some vegetables live here too.
I feel that relaxing your mind can open your body up to perceiving all that there is in this world. This is essentially why I travel, because new experience teaches you new ways to feel the world. I try to do this every day, but the humdrums seem to always catch up to me eventually.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've hosted a few times and they have all been really great experiences. Surfing is always the best though :)
Lately I've been getting stumped when people ask me where I've been couchsurfing...It turned into a lifestyle and I can't keep track!
non-traditional education, farm lyfe, finding people who take big chances, community-building, sustainability, outsider art, tattoos, deconstruction, the art of fermentation, my friends' bands, my trucks and other stupid stuff, other people's ways of doing things, spirituality, recommended books, cooking good food, travel.

Music, Movies, and Books
I liked going to shows in my former city, Minneapolis. Some of my favorite local bands are; Chickadee Mountain Martyrs, Dark Dark Dark, Painted Saints, Chokecherry, Sundowners, Bouncer Fighter, Clawthroat, The Blind Shake, and Birthday Suits. When my record player is working, I've got old funky soul music, Al Green, Etta James, Stevie Wonder are some favorites. I've also picked up some really weird industrial stuff from the free bin that I really really like.
As for books, Kurt Vonnegut has a special place in my heart. Neil Postman and Daniel Quinn take care of the Cynicism and Hope categories pretty well, and Harold & Maude is my favorite movie of all time.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
UFOs on the fourth of July in Fergus Falls, MN.
Teach, Learn, Share
