[before_listing images= youtube=null] Recently, I’ve been trying to transition to moneylessness. I managed to stop using money myself and get rid of my material possessions, but Indiana doesn’t seem a very freegan-friendly place.
And since it’s been cold, I’ve been pretty much just mooching off the money of my family and friends. Despite not spending any money, I’m just absorbing all their money-bought resources myself, which, for me, is essentially just using the money indirectly, and doesn’t really fit with my values.
I feel like it would be easier with a network of like-minded people and more community resources. As it is now, I don’t know anyone else who wants to be off-grid, moneyless, freegan, or even really eco-friendly. And I have no idea how to find other people like this, either. So this is where I’m going to start!
If you are living a freegan or off-grid lifestyle, or wanting to start and want to brainstorm ideas, and also interested in volunteering and giving to the community and starting or increasing (if there is one already that I don’t know about!) a healthy and friendly network of similarly-minded people in Indiana, please respond! I’d love to meet you and talk about what we know and where to go next.
Especially as it will (hopefully!) be getting warmer soon enough, now is a great time for starting new projects and lifestyle changes.
I’m a laid-back guy who respects everyone and has no prejudices. I like spending a lot of time alone, but enjoy friendships with other free-spirited people. I am easy to get along with albeit initially very shy. I am always up for trying new things and learn quickly, and am good at teaching, too.
I’m not picky about the future and like having all kinds of experiences, so I’d really love to hear from anyone and everyone in the area who is interested in growing their support group and doing stuff together either as a small group or as a growing community :) Feel free to comment here with your email or whatever, and drop me a line, too.
I spend about half my time on the south side (Greenwood) and the other half on the west side (Speedway/Avon), though I tend to have more freedom/availability when I’m south :) I also don’t mind walking far. I’ve walked 6+ hours in the rain to give someone a Wii game (and hitched a ride back).
