This is my new zine, a how-to guide to hitchhiking, traveling for free/cheap, breaking free of the system, and living on the streets! Check it out if you want by clicking on the image!
This is my fifth zine, created over a year during 2011.
100% DIY, black+white, sixty pages, book-size, bound with a rubber band.
After hitchhiking all over the entire country over the last two or so years, I decided to put together an official how-to guide to help others learn how to break free, seek adventure, and live entirely for free or cheap while simultaneously detaching themselves from the systems that restrict them. In this, you will learn not only how to hitchhike, but how to hop trains, eat for free, sleep on the streets, how to make fast money, how to turn survival and non-participatory activism into fun and everlasting memories, and much, much more. Imagine Abbie Hoffman’s “Steal This Book” meets “Evasion”.
The pigeon is a metaphor for living a life of freedom, non-interventionism, and opportunity, living off of the excess of modern society and finding cracks in the system.
This is a detailed, concise guide on how to travel around and survive within the continental United States. It is probably old news to seasoned professionals, but feel free to check it out whether you be new to the game or a senior!
I made this zine three years ago and am still very proud of it. It is arguably my most popular release and it’s gotten sold at several stores around the country, made its way all over the world to different people and distros/zine libraries, and has garnered me several letters of thanks from strangers who it motivated and inspired.
