Document Colin Leath Document 2003-05-17 2008-03-06 2003-05-17
  I've lived in Falls Church (Near Washington, DC), Kahului (Maui,HI), Monterey (California), Seattle (Washington), Austin (Texas), and New York City. Eventually I'll write about those and other places I've experienced from a carfree perspective.
Document Is an Ecovillage World Possible? Document 2003-06-02 2003-06-02 2003-06-02
  This is an excerpt from page 132 of _Ecovillage Living_ by Hildur Jackson and Karen Svensson, presenting the case for why ecovillages need to be made within the mega-cities as well as out in the countryside.
Document What can we learn from the Amish and the conservative Mennonites? Document 2003-06-02 2003-06-02 2003-06-02
  Many of you know the Amish do not drive cars. Recently I found the same is true of conservative Mennonites in various places, including Belize! What can be learned from these existing, successful, and growing communities of carfree people? What follows are some notes and links for consideration/discussion.
Document Living where there are no cars Document 2003-06-03 2003-06-03 2003-06-03
  Some thoughts on living where there are no cars using primitive skills and a nomadic lifestyle in the Eastern United States. In particular, the C&O canal (180 miles of beautiful carfreeness), the Appalachian Trail (Maine to Georgia, & intersects with the canal), and the intercoastal waterway (Norfolk, VA to Florida). Also, links to finding animal/humanpower farms to work on, until I find a better place to put them.
Document Propaganda born of a focus on the radical personal change necessary to create a sustainable global society Document 2003-06-13 2005-04-26 2003-06-13
  The old title was "Voluntary Holocaust Participation Manual draft 1." I tired of seeing that under the ecovillage topic. Here's the original description: I've been trying to think of different angles on supporting fervent efforts to create ecomonasteries. This is one attempt. Please contact me if you'd like to assist, or be on the board of directors.

  Wendy Brawer of greenmap.org gave me a bunch of greenmaps from around the world before I left for the conference, and asked for a report when I got back. Here's the report! The conference was March 17-22, 2003, in Prague, Czech Republic. http://carbusters.ecn.cz/conference/

  Colin's thoughts on tolerable employment and collection of possible opportunities.
Document Carfree zionism? Document 2003-06-23 2003-06-23 2003-06-23
  It seem like no one (not even I) wishes to encourage other carfree people to move to their town. An exception may be Portland? Perhaps a car-free zionist movement would excite us more.

Document Hobo School Document 2003-08-30 2008-03-05 2003-08-30
  For those drawn to the nomadic and often solitary (as well as carfree) life, certain skills will come in handy. This is about some opportunities I've had to learn some of those skills.

Document "Asheville Band Travels Through North Carolina on Bikes" and The ACRC Recyclery Document 2003-09-01 2005-06-13 2003-09-01
  Bands seeking to leave the car behind on their tours keep popping up. Pete (stickerguy.com) has a label he's been trying to get to tour car-free. Well these guys (the deadthings) have actually done it! Not only that but they help run the Recyclery at the Asheville Community Resource Center on Lexington Street in dowtown Asheville. If you need to do some work on your bike, stop in there and volunteer and I'm pretty sure they'll let you use their tools.

Document Colin's current philosophical framework (anarcho / neo primitivism, with an eye out for the integral), and its development Document 2003-09-20 2008-03-06 2003-09-20
  I've been influenced by John Zerzan, Derrick Jensen, Tom Elpel, Tom Brown, Dorothy Freed, and others writing about anarchoprimitivism/neoprimitive/simple ways of living. Here I share some thoughts and links to work that have encouraged me in my current path. I'm also aware of Ken Wilber, whose philosophy may suggest a different direction.
Document How to bicycle into New Orleans Document 2003-09-21 2008-03-05 2003-09-21
  On the adventure cycling southern route, there isn't a spur into New Orleans. Since I'm not yet canoing / kayaking, this page is for information on bicycling into and out of New Orleans. Google searches did not help me find which bridges into New Orleans can be cycled, so perhaps this page will change that. (Another city that could use a page like this is NYC / Staten Island, though adventure cycling has a route for that)
