    I never skipped so many pages on a book I was reading. Really nothing about biking. Just a lecture I didn't need.

    I am not sure how you can live with no job / income and make it day to day. I have been homeless and it was not an easy task, with no real place to sleep or call home, the rest wasn't too bad, eating and showering and what not, but the hardest was a place to live, and here you are traveling all over. I love what you do and are a huge inspiration, I would like to learn more on the lifestyle though.

    I think Rob makes his living by making a difference and living his passions.. his book, blogs etc and donations… he has wrote in several places that he lives on 10% of proceeds and donates the other 90% to ethical/environmental organizations 🙂 definitely an inspiration hey?!

    This is wonderful and a great example for all of us. I would love to meet him. This is indeed an inspirational example. Rob you are great.

    Hey — I've got it … instead of complaining, why not just donate the book to your local library? And walk or bike there to do it. You'll feel much better I'll bet!
