Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed reading it. To live with so little must be truly liberating and the ultimate feeling of freedom.

It really is quite liberating, I have taken everything I learned from ultralight backpacking and carried it over to living on a small sailboat. The most beautiful thing is that now I can carry three months of food stores with me. The boat gets me to places that have no access so i often have my own private islands to explore. Check this out its a kewl film my friends made. http://artofhookie.org/2012/05/17/grass-roots-sailing-documentary/

Beautiful story man. It takes ball to live an untraditional life, but for those that do ... there's likely no other option and nothing as satisfying. Keep up the good work!
