In early November, I told myself that I’d run my first marathon (26.2 miles) by the end of the month. My longest run in 2013 was 3.5 miles, my longest ever was 13.1 miles in 2008, and I had run no more than 50-100 miles total in 2013.
Remember when I asked for a beautiful and adventurous woman to run away to Mexico with me? Well, I am running away to Mexico and I’m bringing a teammate, but you don’t have to be a woman, and everyone is beautiful. You’ve just got to be ready for a real adventure and have a desire to create a happier healthier world!
Right now, I live off the grid in a very tiny house. I’ve taken earth-friendly living much further than I’d ever imagined and to many, my way of life is extreme. Of course, I know we’re not all going to live off the grid in tiny houses and most of us aren’t going to drastically change our lives overnight. But not that long ago, when I started to live a more earth-friendly life, I had a typical apartment and lived a pretty typical life. My transformation started with small changes to the way I was used to doing things, and just kept growing from there.
This is my house guide to sustainable, simple, and healthy living. These were all the building blocks that took me from Drunk Dude to Dude Making a Difference. All of these practices are good for the Earth, your community, and yourself and create health and happiness for all humans and creatures. I recommend making a list of all the things you want to start doing from this guide and hanging it on a prominent place on your wall. Start with the easier things that you can enjoy doing and then move to the more challenging ones. With each little success, you’ll feel more empowered to tackle the next challenge, and it will become more enjoyable and more exciting as you go! It’s all about taking it one day and one step at a time to get to where you want to be.
To most human beings, an individual ant means absolutely nothing. It is a minuscule insect among billions that appear exactly the same to the untrained eye.
Fellow humans, when you look at our existence within a greater perspective you will start to grasp that we are nothing more than the ants we perceive as insignificant. The earth is nothing but a speck of dust within an infinitely expanding space. In the grand scheme of existence each of us humans on this speck of dust are no more important than the bugs stuck to our windshields.

Yeah, that’s right, the last shower I took was on April 20th, 2013, exactly 6 months ago. Why have I done something crazy like this? Well, the answer is simple: to conserve water. At first I thought it would be quite the challenge, but I learned quickly that I do not need water to pour out from a shower-head above me in order to stay clean. Water is naturally available all over and it cleans me just as well from a trickling creek, a rushing river, a placid lake, a pounding ocean wave, or dripping from the sky.
