I am currently on the road, hitchhiking around the world shooting a documentary, or twelve. I am hoping to inspire those around me through unorthodox, and sometimes extreme methods of living. I have decided that in order to accurately measure and also to enable the best possible footage I will not spend a single dollar on food, shelter, transportation or anything personal for the next full year, and only sustain on what has been generously and spontaneously provided for me.
After witnessing enough negative behaviour in complete strangers to complete strangers to last a lifetime, I have decided to set out to accomplish many things. Prove the world is not such a nasty place full of untrustworthy people, open the minds of society that anything is possible, and that a new friend or opportunity is just a conversation away. When common courtesy seems to have evaded us in 2010, I am setting out in search of the good in the human race. Where have all the good people gone?
I will use my social skills, resourceful thinking and life experiences to accomplish a highly controversial move; travel the globe on less than $500 and breakdown every sterotype and false perception. Its going to be tough sometimes, but I know that what is waiting for me will rock the socks off of everyone reading this. Just wait 'til you see the videos.....

I'm going to be walking into business, looking to ask for food, product, money, or a temporary job, oh, and a mutually beneficial, spontaneously and newly formed relationship. Yee haw. Walking into a dollar store to ask for a roll of tape for my camera or a pack of cookies for my belly won't come free, but maybe if I tell him Ill sweep his floor, clean his aisles, and help clean up for him at closing time, plus hope he sees me and my crap and uses his discretion to realize I'm not going to A) steal from him or B) Just believe the story I'm telling him about this trip and the video, and allow me to help him and he in return can help me. A $2 roll of tape for 15 minutes or 5hrs, what ever he wants or thinks is fair, and I in turn will hopefully get a quick meal fix, or a fiver to add to my emergency reserves.

Fair? Crazy? Uneccessary? Necessary?
