A Friend on CNN

Okay, so I don't normally watch CNN.  But I'm in Peru, happen to have a room with a TV in it and wanted to catch up on world events.  Unfortunately the only English channel is CNN.  So, while getting…Continue

Some time back someone posted an idea of putting together a lfrv sailing expedition (Central America, Northern S. America and the S. Pacific).  Can't seem to find that thread.  At the time it sounded…Continue

Hemorrhoids.1 1/2 weeks ago I went on a long road ride ... much longer than my usual.  I was mashing bananas the whole way through.  Maybe I'm not supposed to be eating during a ride?  Anyway, during…Continue

We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
Raw adventure is calling me. After 15 years of destroying my health with standard american office work (Software Architecture), I've managed to break free and intend to travel the tropics, make new friends and eat 100% lfrv. My passions are gardening, running, hiking, mt biking, composing music and playing guitar.

Saved up some money while working at mtbr.com. I know more about computers than is healthy for me. I specialize in Linux (Ubuntu/Debian), C++ (gnome), mysql, perl/php/python. In the first 10 years of my corporate slavery I had become a wizard at c# windows programming. If you have problems, ideas, projects dealing with any aspect of computing, I can probably help. My dream is to live abundantly while working remotely somewhere in the tropics ... possibly teaching computer science to the locals... or maybe opening a raw vegan internet cafe/society ... but most likely extending my e-commerce software/consulting business. Message me if you have any ideas/experience!

Screw Watching the Discovery Channel!

Posted on October 24, 2010 at 7:05am 2 Comments

What a jungle I'm living in ... literally! The past two weeks I've
witnessed nature in its rawest form. Matter of fact, I've witnessed
things that aren't shown on the Discovery Channel. When I first got to
Vida Clara, the [read more ...]

Banana Snob

Posted on October 22, 2010 at 9:45am 4 Comments

I've recently become a banana snob. How did this happen? First off I
ate a home grown "Golden Finger" variety banana picked fresh from the
Vida Clara permaculture farm's food forest. This banana had so many
subtle flavors that it put the ubiquitous store bought Cavendish variety

Raw Spirit Fest: Journey To

Posted on September 30, 2010 at 11:49am 7 Comments

Last Monday (Sept. 20) I left from Salt Lake City, UT for the Raw Spirit Fest. I passed through Green River, UT known for their famous watermelons. Needless to say I spent a wad of $$$ on some grade A+ melons. Then spent two nights camping under a cliff outcropping in a red rock canyon (Moonflower Campground).

Moab is the desert in an epic sense. Feels very biblical there. That and every turn on a trail you expect to see Wiley Coyote chasing the Road Runner. Did some trail running in… Continue

Bulk Bananas Bounty

Posted on September 11, 2010 at 10:48am 4 Comments

Last weekend I took Mike Arnstien's advice ...

Using google I found two distributors in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. I found two more just keeping my fruity eyes open (a new sixth sense). I emailed those that I found online and asked if they'd be willing to sell bulk produce to an extreme athlete. I also said I'd spend upwards of $100 each week on produce. Only one of them got back to me and I made an appointment.

I was a little nervous… Continue

Hi Mike!

I'm excited to be meeting you at Woodstock Fruit Festival, I believe I saw that you are going? Hubby and I are soon to be heading for Costa Rica, he will go directly after the festival actually, I will join him later. Could you give us any tips on what we can expect fruit-wise, where to go, what to see, who to meet? We are hoping to make a go of living down there. So we'll be seeking out work and a city to dwell in.

So stoked!

Hugs and fruit,

Hello Mike!

Thank you so much for you're reply! and for the update on the Belize farm. Still very looks interesting, even though it isn't 80/10/10 people running it anymore! :P I will definitely email! Thanks for also giving the best seasons to go, that definitely helps!

Yes, I've heard that Belize isn't the worse off in Central America, but even though I've been to India and have seen first hand the extend of desperation our society has reached, it still gets to me. But I guess the only way to go about it is to be the change we want to see! :)

Did you by any chance find anywhere else exciting in Central America?

ALos as a side note (sorry tell me if I'm asking too many questions! ;)) have you been to Australia? I'm looking into it as a possible location to go and get permaculture/eco/autonomous living experience! 


Thank you again!

Have a brilliant day!

Hello Mike!

I saw on a thread that you were WWOOFing in Belize and I was just wondering if you are still there/or if it's possible to WWOOF at the same place! :)

I was planning to do a year WWOOFing there and Vida Clara looks perfect! But then I saw a thread were they said they were selling the farm! So I'm a bit confused whether it is still possible to go there? I'd appreciate any info! 


Thank you so much in advance! :D

Hope you have a beautiful day,

Hey man, could you send me a message about costa rica living, I was thinking about going either there or hawaii this summer for about 3 months, wwoofing though for free accomodation, have you been on any of the wwoof farms out there??

Thanks Mike, yes, check out Brazil - it has amazing fruits I am telling you!

Now, just wondering about Ecuardorian visas: would it be easy to become a permanent resident there?

Hey Mike, where are you now? I wish I was on your adventurous path! You must be having a blast!

Mike the property is empty right now for about a month until we arrive.  If you are looking for a place to stay, let me know.  There is internet access, and everything else you may need on the property.  You are ten minutes away from the market and the bus system is really easy.  Send me an email at lamorlife@gmail.com if you are interested.

Hey! I made it to San Isidro! I'm staying right downtown at a cheap hotel. Don't know if you'll check this before the market, but I'll be wearing a sea shepherd shirt with no sleeves. See ya tomorrow!

Mike - 

I'm heading to uvita tonight, then either to orotina (tons of fruit, apparently!) or to San isidro for the market. It would be great to meet up with y'all, but it's seeming like I'll have to pick one or the other. I'll let you know though!
