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.....

Today I had a wild wild morning with a 79yr old hippie who was driving in the other direction, yet stopped, pulled over, handed me a cigarette containing BC's infamous finest, a handful of beers and we exchanged hitching stories over a few coldies.
I mentioned how so many people think its dangerous to hitchhike, and he thought for a second.
Then he replied " Dangerous? Well I guess I could cut half my thumb off."

I thought it was funny.

Oh, why herrow everybody.

Well in typical fashion, Ive disappeared and left many hanging once again. Also in typical Nate fashion; Ive gone an injured myself quite seriously doing something stupid and unnecessary. This mixture enables for a magical potion of my return to the blog! Ive been blessed with a memory that in certain circumstances, I can revisit, and will do so to the best of my ability to regurgitate the wild trip I was on out here, the three or so weeks I lasted planting before tearing my MCL and the trip I'm preparing for tmrw; hitching to the Okanagan to rehab the knee on a beach. I was going to hitch to Ontario, scoop someone up and return out here, but plans have changed, so Ill be getting some serious rest, digging my toes into the sand. I'm in a hotel in Quesnel today, I head to the hospital tomorrow for a final scan then Ill be heading to Naramata, the closest thing to paradise in Canada. I'm going to start some tonight(don't hold your breath) while I catch up on everything I didn't miss now that I'm back, and plugged into the world.
