Ready to start chasing a different carrot?
In the giant game of tag we have decided that we are no longer playing. In other words, we are no longer “it.” If you would like to explore the world of WWOOFing and Couchsurfing we would like to help. We would be happy to provide answers to any questions you may have that concern your potential release from the treadmill we all live on. Below are some simple recommendations but remember everyone has a different set of circumstances. What may have worked for us doesn’t mean it will work for you.
1. Determine what you are willing to risk when breaking away from mainstream society.
a. Living without insurance
b. Living without a paycheck
c. Living without credit cards
d. Living without instant gratification
e. Living without convenience
2. Determine what you are willing to gain.
a. Living in the present
b. Living a healthier lifestyle
c. Living with our fellow species instead of believing we are separate from them
d. Living with a new skill set
Karen and I have decided to join a community that has much to offer…the natural world. Many people believe we are running away from something but we know we’re running towards a relationship with other species and people who have skills to survive with very little negative impact on our environment.
Several options include WWOOF, Survival Schools, Stone Age Skills Schools, Couch Surfing, House Sitting, Permaculture, and Educational Travel. We will explore all of these options and report back to those who follow our travels. Our hope is others will seek alternatives to traditional industrialized living.
