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.....

Quick Update

Well I'm sitting here at Widener University, on the southside of Philadelphia, where a mild mannered state trooper has just dropped me off. In handcuffs(state policy). I'm not allowed hitching on the interstate, only the on-ramps, the first NY state troopers told me, and I was on the on-ramp, yet he still picked me up, 'for your own safety'. I was sitting here planning to write the blog stories in detail, (its been a hectic 24hrs) but with the sun setting, I think I'm going to go out and use the last bit of sunlight to try and hitch south again, as I just want to get the hay away from Phillay.

If no rides, or my 3rd escort from a State Trooper, Ill be back to let you guys know the details. Funny stories coming up I tell ya....
