Step Outside (Your Mind)

“Sometimes we live no particular way but our own,
And sometimes we visit your country and live in your home,
Sometimes we ride on your horses, sometimes we walk alone,
Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own.”

Eyes of the World; Grateful Dead

Recent sites I’ve been perusing:

Digihitch: Think no one hitches anymore? Here’s a whole community of folks that share their hitching stories, warnings, tips and support with each other.

Road Junky Travel: Ever thought of living in a van down by the river? Well, you’re in luck because there are plenty of people that do live in vans (but not always by rivers) and love telling about their experiences.

Dropping Out: At my friends house they have this old snowboard mounted on their wall with the phrase “Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out” advertising itself in raised letters across the length of the board deck. Ran Prieur has an interesting essay written on this exact subject.

The counterculture in any culture has always intrigued me. Curiosity has been a constant companion throughout the entirety of my waking years.

I'm in the early stages of dropping out. Find myself reading the tales of folks living 'voluntary simplicity'. It's amazing... what seemed counter cultural in the beginning, now feels like joining a different, well-established culture.
