Inspirations and Connections

Beautiful Casa,

Wow, what a week of connections it has been. My house mate Ginny and I set off on a little hitchhiking journey down to Asheville North Carolina, where her sweetheart lives doing primitive living workshops etc...

I have been learning how to make bows and arrows (from bamboo, feathers and rocks), how to live in huts built from sticks and leaves, how to eat only wild food, how to tan hides (from roadkill) and make them into bags/clothes/tools... and lots of other interesting things..

From Casa to Gorleben

Kardan and i hitched out of the Casa starting late Wednsaday. We zigzaged our way across the Netherlands, never waiting long, but having some less than perfect places to hitch from. My old illusions about hitching at night we quickly displaced. Kardan is fearless in his quiet way. Asking everyone at the gas stations for a lift. When we finally made it to the German boarder, the sun was already setting and we were far from Braunswieg (sp?). Kardan asked several drivers and the good news was we found on willing to take us and going all the way to our destination.
