Lets Do it, One Year In, on the road, What I have learned

           Well, Today marks one year since a lost heartbroken soul with no ID, two gas cans, and a "friends" truck picked me up at my mother's and got me started on this  journey. While I'd like to go down a huge list of things I learned like How to make a didgeridoo, the value of shiny rocks, true friends love you with nothing and in LA you can participate in a porno, in a hotel room with Micky Mouse wallpaper.
            Or run down bragging about the tantric sex instructor I spent hours with in St Paul, or how many chicks I saw naked; the truth is: sex is great, I can now go for days now instead of hours and seeing a girl naked more than once loses it charm after a while.
                 I could say stereotypical things like; I really learned  things about myself, that deep down inside  I am a loving creature and those who waste their energy on hate and resentment are only cheating themselves. I find it easier to love and forget, I love everyone. I can spend time saying things like the country is in bad shape and people are broke, and the people I met with nothing seemed to have everything. 
         I might as well stand on my soapbox and preach about how awesome weed is and how I wish I had a joint everyday, but being the "new guy " always leaves you with no hookup, or how hippies stink, but we all know that and I usually don't smell so good nowadays. I could defend that by preaching about the value of water conservation or how chicks dig pheromones, but truth is sometimes taking a shower is a fucking inconvenience. 
              I could talk about all the useful tricks and techniques I learned about survival. Things like how to find a shower, free breakfast, or the best indoor pools, but truth is if you have a question ask and I will find an answer. I could talk about skewed faith, beliefs, and political ideologies.  I want to discuss my philosophy of my 3 S's with the world but they can wait for the book,  here is a preview; all I do everyday is try to Survive, have Sex, and Smile, I learned this from watching squirrels on the back end of a space bag (maybe some pot too).
         All in all I learned it is easier to accept help, be open to people, and sometimes just stop saying "NO" (while that may cause problems its an adventure worth having), sometimes pissing the bed is unavoidable, FREECAMPSITES.NET  is the best road resource on the planet and they travel with one of the coolest and cutest girls on the planet And while we are discussing cute and cool girls/women The TUCKERBAG is the best blog out there for stealthers and anyone really.. It is always better to give then receive and sometimes you have to let go of someone to give them a better life. I learned I am not done learning and I know nothing. Sadness still happens in Utopia and tears flow just the same, hugs are amazing, I have so much more to learn. I would love to field questions from any and all search David Drifter on facebook to find me ask anything. I am, if anything, completely honest, I love you all.

Finding Peace in My Obliviousness

      I, for intents and purposes live in my own world, often refering to myself as Captain Oblivious because I am usually lost in my own thoughts. Most of my thoughts are self sacrificial ones where as I put my pride away and do things to make others days brighter whether its tell them a joke or hand them a compliment, at least I try. In my mind if I can spread a little of my peace to someone else and get them to smile and forget for a second about the things around them I have had a good day. I find this more and more in my relationship with my mother, some people see it as me bending backwards to make her not "freak out" about little things, where as i see it as one less thing she needs to do, if I can help make her day brighter I will.  So back to Obliviousness living inside my head causes me to miss things, preconceived notions are rarely in my head, as are ulterior motives. My honesty and openness  tends to get me in trouble alot, and what may be obvious to you I generally miss. The back motives or little glances, so when dealing with me just be honest because otherwise I will keep trying to make life better for all.

       I am happy living my life and do not mind the sacrifices I have made to live my way so please keep your petty materialistic nonsense out of my aura for it is pure and doesn't need any shit clouding it. I am easy to love and easy to give love because I am a loving creature; without the needless sense of self that makes love difficult. While many fault me as to easygoing  and complacent, and yes I understand I am single because most women want stronger men who will take charge. Well,  that is not me, I am a true partner, one who will do what needs to be done to make someone happy, I am willing to shed who, I am willing to sacrifice my "self" for anyone I love; and while I may die a lonely martyr, I will do so with the hope that I made an impact on my own terms. And if you need something just ask because I will never "get it" if you beat around the bush. Still have no News Years Date any ideas???

A New Kind of Crazy

Well it seems as though the winter months are slow spots for many bloggers, as it is with me, I have gotten a little off track. I finished in Kansas and  had to head back to Austin a little earlier than expected, but I got what I wanted out of Amazon and would like to go back another time. I learned some things, met some wonderful people and even had a date of sorts, hence the title of the blog. I always seem to find the most insane girl in anyplace and latch on to them and while she does hold a special place in my heart and will make some man very lucky one day (and some kid very resentful) I am resigned to try other options,  but enough of that. I am in Austin with my dog, cat, mother, mothers roommate, mothers boyfriend, and 2 other dogs this seemingly quiet house has come alive in my absence, it is nice to be surrounded by so many people after a year alone on the road, while I do find it hard to return to mainstream society I am adjusting nicely and having a good time.

I will be joining my best and only friend in the world for a night of wrestling action featuring my favorite independent star, this Sunday at the Mohawk here in Austin. We are having a Christmas party at my moms on Saturday which should be fun, there will be food and games, I hope my friend will come so I will be more outgoing.

I am getting ready to WWOOF for the next year, I leave for Guadalajara on the 6th of January, I have no schedule and no real plans after my first assignment on a small farm/bakery, the projects sound wonderful doing earth building, yoga, Vegan cooking, gardening and several construction rehab projects. I do have a couple ideas and dates I want to hit; October 12th is the Venezuela elections and I would like to be in Caracas for them because I think it will be a World Defining moment. I also would like to attend the World Rainbow Gathering in Mexico City in December and celebrate the end of the Mayan Calendar on top of a pyramid. I can't wait and I know I will be broke and have to figure out a way to adjust if/when I return to the states, but its going to be an experience that not everyone is willing to take. I want to update this again a couple times before I leave, but in case I do not get the chance, I love all of you and everyone of your families, life is important, and time is valuable. If your wasting your time and not living the life you want then its up to you to change it. Once again I love you all, and I still need a New Years Date ladies, Austin is wonderful this time of year 65 and sunny.

Be excellent to each other
