SOMETHING GRAND AND DEAR IS HAPPENING HERE
THE SPEARPOINT OF A LIFESTYLE REVOLUTION--Rubber Tramp Rendezvous Summer 2016
About a hundred of us
In a wide variety of vehicles
Came from far and near (one flew in from Equador)
To assemble here in the forest near Flagstaff, Arizona--At the invitation of this man--Bob Wells--writer and philosopher of http://www.cheaprvliving.com/blog/
to attend a RUBBER TRAMP RENDEZVOUS.
Our group the 1st BAND OF BOONDOCKERS was well represented. Kathy makes friends with a bird.
AND THE BIG GUNS--CAME ALSO--meet Rachel Bujalski--a professional photographer--researching alternative lifestyles--see some of her work here in the National Geographic.
She was everywhere---shooting--learning.
Meet Ellis--professional Magician--the best I've ever seen. He makes a very good living as a Busker.
I trust you will remember Laurie--co-founder with me of the Quest for Community Caravan and featured in the movie: WITHOUT BOUNDS, See it here.
Also my colleague CB--co founder of the 1st Band of Boondockers---here entertaining us with a hilarious joke.
One day a group of us went exploring in the nearby Lava River cave.
RANDY PHILOSOPHIZES: Yes I think these people are the beginners of a quiet revolution: mostly against RENT, MORTGAGE, HOME OWNERSHIP, FIXIDITY, EXCESSIVE CONSUMERISM, DRUDGERY AND FOR FREEDOM, FRUGALITY, MOBILITY, SIMPLICITY, SELF EXPRESSION AND CONNECTION.
An estimated million of us are currently on the road. I believe that most of us live this lifestyle to win for ourselves the opportunity to know ourselves and give our gift. (All anyone ever wanted to do was contribute)
