I’ve come to the realization that the flights I take are quite detrimental to the earth. I’ve made hundreds of changes in my life to live more earth friendly but I’m not giving up flying completely as of now. However starting today I’m taking some serious responsibility for the flights that I do take.

Arrested for Dumpster Diving for Food? I’ve Got You Covered.

We throw away nearly half of all the food we produce in the United States while 1 in 7 Americans are often unsure of where their next meal will come from. To me that is absurd, a country with such an abundance of food with such an abundance of hunger.

I’m not down with this.

I’m not down with throwing away all this perfectly good food.

I’m not down with hungry children and elders.

I’m not down with the environmental havoc created by dumping billions of pounds of food.

I’m not down with all the animals that are raised and killed just to end up in a dumpster.

My Tiny Home is in the News and I Haven’t Even Moved In Yet!

11 minutes after I posted a photo of my new tiny home on Facebook Joe Little from Channel 10 News wanted to do a story. I told him the house wasn’t really ready yet, but sure why not. 5 minutes later I got a request from the The SD City Beat. Lot’s of excitement around this little guy. I’ve decided along with the builder, Chris Scott, I’m going to use my home to help get people off the streets. This has been a dream of his for decades and at the age of 70 something we’re going to fight homelessness together.

My personal guide to happiness, health, and freedom

I wrote this for myself, but thought I might as well make it public because I could see it being helpful for some people. This is how I live when I am functioning at peak happiness, health, and freedom. These are the basic elements to way of living. It could seem rigorous but most of it is simply my way of being so it takes little perceived work. I write it down though to keep a constant reminder of how I want my days, weeks, and months to look. I find that when things are on paper and physically in front of me, they are much more real. It’s not an all inclusive list though, as some things that come completely natural to me are not included such as an abundance of adventure and travel.

One Year No Plastic

Merren Tait, is simply incredible. She went a year without plastic and afterwards a few of my friends told me I should interview her, so I did. By the end of my interview with her I had already fallen in love with her mind. She is simply brilliant and sees the world in a way most people never will. It’s obvious to me how intelligent she is and how well thought out all of her actions are. That is greatly admirable to me. Dedication like she’s shown changes you forever, and I can certainly relate to her experience, especially from Off the Grid Across the USA. This interview with Merren is an excellent resource for anyone wanting to reduce their impact on the environment and live a life full of happiness, health, and freedom.

Discovery Channel Flew Me to London for the Weekend. Here’s How I Rationalized the Flight.

I’m absolutely no big shot in the entertainment world but I do have a few things in the making. This summer I took a pause halfway through my bicycle ride across the United States to film my first TV show. It was a grueling survival experience in the Louisiana swamps for Discovery Channels newest survival show, Tethered. I was dropped in waste deep swamp water by an airboat to await the arrival of a stranger who’d accompany me for the next 10 days of survival. A half an hour later, another airboat cruised up and a fancy looking guy named Kevin blundered towards me. I thought I had been set up; this guy was just too clumsy and clueless to really be my partner. But within two minutes of saying hello we were tethered together by a six-foot rope and sent on our way to fend for ourselves. We had just the clothes on our backs, a water purifier, machete, and a dozen matches. I can honestly say it was the most miserable experience of my free adult life but it made for an excellent experience.
