Change the World (for yourself): Give up tv & the internet for a week!
Want to support me? Follow my lead on a weekly challenge!
I have had very close to zero access to internet and tv the past week, and it’s been great!
In place of these two very common distractions, spend more time going greater good!
There are SO many interesting things to do in life! 🙂
Post below (or on my facebook) to pledge you will attempt this challenge!
VIDEO OF THE WEEK
Sometimes people exaggerate odder threats while downplaying more common ones.
The most serious risk I face while out on the road is actually you, or someone you know.
This powerful short from Werner Herzog (“Grizzly Man”) came out just this month.
It’s very related to the challenge this week… don’t get so caught up in technology that you miss out on what’s real and in front of you.
FACT OF THE WEEK
“Right to Farm Law” specifics differ from town to town, but the idea is protection for farms,
from complaints neighbors may make about the smell or noise coming from farm land.
I like that some towns respect this law so much that they put up road signs to proclaim it!
Learn to raise your own chickens!/make it legal to do so where you live!

After a brief break back home in NJ, for an important family function and some other stuff, I am back on the road full speed once again. Doing my usual of about 20 miles a day, my most being 27 yesterday. I have been realizing I can eat A LOT doing this, and that if I do eat a lot, I walk a lot better! Can be tricky to eat full meals all day when sometimes I am in the middle of nowhere!, but I also always do have lots of groceries on me. Have been meeting lots of great people everywhere I go as usual… one of my favorite memories of the week was yesterday morning, camped out in my new friend’s backyard, at 7:30am, 9-year-old Caleb (above) wakes me up: “Tom! Tom! I made you breakfast!” He had woken up on his own and made me two waffles with syrup on a napkin. 🙂
