Mobile Living: The Time Is Now

If you’re watching this and you want to live this mobile, traveling lifestyle…

Do it now, do it right now, take advantage of it as soon as you possibly can.

Because we need to show society and the existing public lands people that this is a thing that people want to do, that people are gonna have it.

And we’re not gonna put up with encroaching, restrictive measures against it either. All of these regulations clamped down on everything in this world, cameras everywhere, surveillance, no…

That’s not okay, we’re not gonna settle for that, we’re not gonna let it happen.

Right now while the getting is good, you need to start doing research, watching videos, reading resources about campground areas. Read all the information, everything you need to know about what you need to do this.

I have a rechargeable jumpstarter battery, a tiny tire inflator machine, a small solar panel array, window coverings…

Just learn about all the things that are required to make it comfortable and safe to live this way.

Start getting ahead on it and do this, because now is the time and we need to show the world that this is what we want. This is what is best.

It’s just true. Be the change you wanna see. That’s what I’m trying to do out here. To set people free and to show people that you CAN be free. You have to set yourself free. In this day and age, here in America, freedom really is a choice. It’s a choice. You have to choose it.

And they don’t encourage you to choose freedom. They encourage you to go to college and get into insurmountable debt that keeps you awake at night that you can’t even get past your mind in order to do anything in life. That’s what they encourage you toward.

They encourage you to become tied down, bogged down, weighed down and enslaved.

But you don’t have to do that. So show them that you won’t do that. Show them that you know there’s another way.

And when you do that, slowly, it frees people and shows people that they can choose freedom.

These kind of changes are not overnight but they start with people going out there and fearlessly pioneering the new way to live.

And you don’t have to travel around in a vehicle. I realize there are old or disabled people out there who can’t necessarily navigate around in a vehicle. But even for the people who can’t live this way, I still think there’s a better way to live than the way we’ve been living. In climate controlled boxes, slowly decaying and dying.

Yeah, when you’re living like this, you’re still slowly dying. But your perception of time and reality is altered in a way so that it makes life seem longer and fuller. Which is inherently more rewarding.

I’m an advocate for tiny homes because I think…

You can only live in one room at once. There’s no reason to have a massive house. More shit, more worries. It’s just that simple.

That’s why I loved the idea of Peace Pilgrim, who was a woman who walked around the US/Canada/Mexico for like 30 years. She didn’t have anything besides what she carried with her. She depended on everybody else, as she walked through town, people would offer her food.

She didn’t have any money, she didn’t carry any money. I’m not hardcore like Peace Pilgrim, there’s no way I’d just walk around everywhere and depend on other people to offer me food. It’s not my style. But the concept is great.

If you look up Peace Pilgrim’s talks, she’d say, “I have nothing but my body and my clothes, and what’s in my pockets, and I’m free.” And that’s her message. And you can do that too, but you can do it in your own way.

If living in an SUV is not your speed, than get yourself a van or an RV. But make sure you have enough resources to sustain whatever choice that you make because RVs are incredibly expensive, and a vehicle in and of itself is very expensive.

You’re very limited in an RV, you can’t just park anywhere. You have to be where you can dump your stuff in special places, and that was the beginning of the movement. Which is decades old at this point. Somebody had the thought, “Well you know what, we’re gonna make a home that is mobile. On wheels. It’s gonna have a kitchen, a bathroom, countertops.”

Cute. Very cute, but now we’ve progressed further than that.

Now we are past the need for running water and countertops. We don’t need that. There are other ways.

So don’t think that you’ve gotta have an RV. And also don’t think you have to live in a van. You can do it your way. Be like Peace Pilgrim and just walk. Whatever calls to you.

But if it calls to you, do it now.

The time is now.
