Kid rides for 2 months, lives large on foraged food

September 22, 2005

Here's a story of a young guy who rode around California all summer and didn't buy any food to do it. He ate what he could find and camped free where he could. He didn't dumpster-dive, steal or trespass to do it, either. He ate mostly fruit and figs that grew wild beyond orchard boundaries. California is a land of abundance, he found. He also made his own wine along the way--I thought that was great. He did end up spending $150. A nifty story of resourcefulness. His t-shirt says "California Figs: The Fitness Fruit"---indeed!
