Here is my guide of how to travel the USA for free without mooching: Gear Up with Some Necessities In order to be self-sufficient and travel sustainably you may need to spend a little bit of money upfront but if you buy everything used you won’t need much money to get going at all.
Shop at thrift stores and second hand stores or use sharing economy websites like Yerdle and Craigslist.
It’s about showing that there are much more rewarding ways to live than just throwing money at every situation.
It’s about living a life that is truly beneficial to the earth, my community, and myself.
One of the greatest keys to freedom is having a bicycle.
It doesn’t have to be a sweet bamboo bike like I ride though.
With a resourceful mind you might not even need to use money to get the necessities.
Most importantly, remember to travel light and only take what you actually need.
Many parts of our country are abundant with natural bodies of water and a simple water purifier will make it clean and healthy for you to drink.
If that is not available, we are also blessed with clean tap water.
Just go behind the store, open up the dumpster, and enjoy the bounty of free food. Forage for Food Open up your eyes and you’ll realize that food is growing free all around you.
Fruit from trees that aren’t being tended to, wild grapevines, cactuses in the desert, mushrooms in the woods, berries, and wild herbs have all found their way into my belly. Water Bring a water purifier and a reusable bottle.
It’s about being more involved in our communities and treating each other with respect.
