Liking the description about midway of a person who just lives on $150 a month. That so radical and agresive. How does someone do that? Yet they claim they can.

Am going to try and add links to other articles to this thread, where people are living as a vagabond and really cheaply. Please add links to stories if you have them.
There's a guy whose home base is in Moab, Utah calls his blog moneyless world. Now he is trying to form a tribe of that lives without money. Last summer he traveled quite a bit, completely without money.

He's been living without money since 2000 and was invited to speak at the University of Colorado's commencement exercises this past May. Below is the link to his speech

...but he turned them down because they wouldn't meet his exorbitant speaking fees!! HAHAHAH!!!

(not really...I just thought that sounded funny) Big Grin
(maybe he couldn't afford the plane ticket???) Tongue


Neat concept though, living without money. I like it alot!!

I was invited to head up a regional 'Barter' organization, (I used to do ALOT of bartering for services)...but I turned them down based on the way the organization was run.
Great ideas often get run into the ground by people's egos.
