People kept rolling in to join us in this free camping place.
for a morning philosophical discussion,
to practice their flute playing
or create an impromptu band,
or help me put a hitch on my van,
or take a morning walk
to the very top of a nearby hill
Or take an archery lesson from Tracy
who is obviously very good at it.
As is Stephen with his air rifle.
One day we threw a pot luck.
Two nights CB hosted an outdoor movie.
Often we show each other our lifestyles techniques. Meet JR, a very efficient traveler
living very comfortably in this well engineered space; says he does not want anything bigger; feels splendidly free to move about the country.
One night we all went to open mike night at a comedy club. That handsome performer is none other than CB our host with the most.
And to my utter amazement, that is our very own Debora on stage amusing the crowd.
Afterwards we went dancing. Here's Laurie and Debora rocking the house.
And then one night we went to a poetry slam.
Here's Tracy reading her work.
And when the judging was over, this old man was declared the winner from a field of 12,
performing his origional poems THE DANCE OF TESTOSTERONE and THE DANCE OF ESTROGEN.
RANDY PHILOSOPHIZES: OH SWEET PEOPLE--HAVE I PERSUADED YOU THAT YOU TOO CAN ESCAPE DRUDGERY AND DEBT TO LIVE A BETTER LIFE. Freedom is possible and friends are available to play with. If you have an income stream of $600 a month, a paid-for car, some imagination and a bit of courage you can join the million of us already on the road enjoying the free life. Mobile tribes are different from other tribes in their transitoriness. They appear and disappear like whirlwinds but oh what a whirl. For a period of time "mobilites" leave their solitude to :draw near to their fellows
engage at a more intimate level
play with more gusto
show their best selves
align their energies with others
AND THEN THEY DISAPPEAR TO DIGEST THE INTENSITY AND AWAIT ANOTHER WHIRLWIND
