Projects & Friends

I have a few projects I'm intermittently contributing to, these are some of them. I've also met some people who are travelers and otherwise interesting folks, so here's some links to them as well.

Freestyle BivyPack

An ultralight backpack that's also a solo tent. This has been dream of mine for a long time, now a reality. I've been using it the past year, now anybody can. You can even order your own now on Kickstarter.

Hobo Home Brewer
www.HoboHomeBrewer.com
I love to brew beer. This is my site dedicated to brewing stories.




Book - Heaps of people tell me I should write a book about my travels, so I finally started getting one together. If you're interested in reading it, email me and I'll let you know when it's done.

Projects you could help with:

Hobo Lifestyle Comic

I shoot video of my travels from time to time, but sometimes I don't think to do it or it's simply not appropriate (not everyone likes getting filmed). I write about everything, but I'm thinking a comic would be a more visual way to share some stories. If you or someone you know would be interested in starting a web comic based on some of my stories, let's do it!


Custom multi-tool

Do you know how to make little tools out of titanium? Get in touch and let's make something cool!


All-in-one universal charger with a bonus

Do you have electronic skills? Do you know how to make a wall charger, have you worked with USB and do you have access to a 3D printer? Well maybe I'm hitchhiking your way, get in touch!

If any of these projects look like something you could get into, shoot me a message at HoboLifestyle@gmail.com.

Dr. Bronners soap is the swiss army knife of hygiene on the road. I can use it as soap and shampoo in the shower, brush my teeth with it, wash my clothes and more. The stuff is magic, check it out and other gear I like to use while traveling.
