So I guess Ill just post an official interest check of anyone wishing to join in.
If say, me and a group of similarly minded people hit the road, with a goal of changing everyone we can for the better along the way, who would want us to come to their hometown to pick them up?
Theres alot more to the big picture than just a random road trip. but i cant be asked to go into detail this late. if anyone wishes to fill in the blanks for me, feel free.
Group of cool people, traveling and meeting new people to take along with us and therefore continue the cycle.
In a perfect world, this story ends with a large group of young people forming a comminity for the future later on down the road.
You dont need skills!
Other than maybe social ones.
The plan is, to get a big change of scenery, and meet as many people as possible. And if we can portray some sort of positive/helpful info to people along the way through sheer badassedness(which is taught in the blog), then hell ya!
I originally wanted to do this on foot, or bike. But talking to alot of people, i think we would lose alot to blisters lol.
My grandpa has a trailer that sleeps 3, maybe 6 if we cram. Has a kitchen, bathroom, and storage space. I was thinking, between who is already coming with me, and who we may meet, it would probably be better to drive.
In order for me to use the trailer, i would probably have to buy it. And we have nothing to tow it. But if i can pull something out of my ass(i have a tendancy to do that), we will have a car that seats 4, +whatever the trailers getting pulled by, the trailer itself, and maybe one more car that we would be picking up in Tallahassee. Thats like 15 – 20 people’s worth of traveling space. :O
Plus anyone else who can offer transportation who wants to join along the way. We could move alot of people very easily, and although we miss the actual traveling experience, we could appeal to a larger crowd(the people with soft feet mostly lol)
If everyone throws a little towards gas, we could hop all around the country, hitting all the cool places where people gather. Spreading HEness to all we can! haha.
Even without this site, i would be doing this eventually anyways.
Ive got alot to do before i can even think about it, but this is definitely something that myself and many others want to do.
Put yourself on the map if your interested. Or atleast tell me to flag your city. Nothings official, your not signing your life away. :P
^Plus, we could start a HEthen commune, or several. these could be waypoints for hethens to join or leave caravans like this as needed, as opposed to getting sick of the road and nowhere to go. I’d still be down with traveling with even this for a bit, though i’d prefer on foot travel.
Looking at the map, if we have someone or something to do in mobile, i see a route starting to take shape.
As for the people in Europe, you would probably have to wait for the movement to go international(a real possibility) to hop on. Unless you want to fly over for it. lol
I have people in the UK and other places who would do this too, but i would never recommend you leave home to travel under their directions. They get lost in their own cities lol.
@Kyle, thats a good idea. Setup shop somewhere quiet here and there. Once i hit the road, ill probably never stop, so people WILL need to get off at somepoint. Im not really leaving much behind, but i know other people have things like family and school that they are tethered to. So thats a really practical idea.
We could even find really secluded spots, and setup self sustainable pit stops for people!
Water collection, basic shelter, graffiti wall for travelers to sign, maps of good foot trails nearby, ect, ect. I can think of alot of cool other stuff we could do once the idea look like its closer to really going down as well.
I get all excited just thinking about it.
hell yeah sounds awesome. ive thrown this out before but, check out the rainbow gatherings. huge masses of non-HEthens every year in a random national park in the U.S., would be a great place to meet up with the caravan or leave it at specific destinations.
Just throwing an idea your way here. School buses can be purchased relatively cheap! you can convert them into a travel bus very easily im going to try and do it this summer myself best of luck to you guys i love this idea wish i didnt live in canada so i could join you guys.
Rainbow gatherings look awesome!
Im all over that.
Ill definitely look into the bus as well. Maybe do some sort of bio-diesel conversion or something. Slap some solar panels on it, buy a wireless hotspot, and weel be good to go! :)
Ill make that my goal.
Hence end the war on drugs. A point made by Alan Watts was that the police force should be respected, and be respectable. The war on drugs has made them into a sort of enemy of a portion of the population, which is a very important factor in law enforcement. To make drugs legal, or at least a public health issue and not a crime, would make police the friendly watchman once again, and you wouldn’t have any of this quota meeting, drug-stereotyping, or even planting drugs on innocent citizens.
