Screw picket fences. Live your best life. Sleep in the dirt.

Hi! I’m Tim. That’s my wife Angel.

What you’ll find here are stories about travel, the outdoors and the meaning of life, for people who daydream about things like sleeping in the woods, spending winters in Mexico, and participating in countercultural revolutions.

I’ve written a couple of books about that sort of thing: The Dirtbag's Guide to Life, and I Hope I Was Wrong About Eternal Damnation: An Absolutely True Memoir. Have a look. You might like them.

Send me a message if you want to work together. I write articles and guest on podcasts.

"“I see the "How on Earth do you make this happen?" question in various groups all the time. I'd love to just get this guide out there in response!”
