For all of us that live in So-Cal or are moving to So-Cal. Find friends, have potlucks, find fruit, foraging spots, or Help each other.It's great to have fruit friends online...but even better to have people to hang out with, to go through transition with, learn from, to find hang out spots, shopping spots (natural products), to hang out with others who's definition of fun isn't being wasted and is a positive person to be around as well as motivational....

Hi Ryan! How is your journey going? I leave on December 30th and I can't wait to feel the warm tropical sunshine since New Hampshire is freezing right now. Hope you're having fun!

Hello Everybody, - I have listened to fair bit of peoples input and it looks like our needs are going to be best met by renting a modern/nice and large house of at least 3 bedrooms and lots of outdoor living space like a large patio, large balcony, a palapa / rancho where we can have 1 or 2  people stay in tents and hammock and share the common indoor areas.  This type of house will run us $500 to $1000 a month ( only $5 to $15 per day if we get a hand full of people)  We will have internet as this was a need for few at very least there will be a high speed internet store in a near by town.  Cell phones are easily available in Mexico so no issue here.  Southern Mexico has a nice lush tropical climate and the best thing is that the people are so kind, and open hearted people you will love it being there.  The plan is to have a pickup truck, bicycles, ocean close by and in a safe and hot climate with abundance of fruits and coconuts.  Open to all 100% Vegans, High Raw, High Carb, High kind loving and respectful people.  Natural Hygiene way of life & nutrition is going to be the theme of this micro community.  We will share a large house, our wisdom, our support, our food, and all our strengths and weaknesses.  The idea is to have a healthy, good, and educational time during the winter and coming years.  There is not much support out there which is affordable and realistic for the natural hygiene so this community will be like a natural hygiene college and you choose how long you want to vacation with us. (Total cost of $25a day for foods, accommodation & some transportation)   It is time for more support for those who are newer to this way of life, but even good for those who are seasoned raw vegans.  In numbers we have strength and better time.  It is time we helped each other out in what ever way we can and therefore strengthen the 811 raw vegan community.  To help us plan things out right please book with us at least 6 weeks in advance, starting for Nov. 2013.  Also check out the photos section of mine over the coming days I will be putting out pictures of southern Mexico semi paradise Tropics.  I will do my best to get to southern Mexico early so I can find a nice house for us, I will also try to look for one via internet since I have recent travel experience in this region and know what the macro regions are like.  Trust me I will be trying to get a bargain price, and a nice location which is not too far from the beach yet far enough so we are not in the salty air zone, a nice quiet neighborhood, far enough from a major town so we have peace and fresh air but close enough so we can drive, bike, or bus to it to get entertainment, services, and goods.  A few hundred meters elevation would be nice so we have a touch or pinch of break from the hot heat of the sea level.  I will try to make connections with fruit and veggie trucks so that they stop by our house daily resupplying us with fresh fruit daily or every few days.  If this sounds like a good plan to you then your support would be much appreciated.  We need people to be serious and save up for a flight ticket to Puerto Vallarta plus a extra $1000 - $3000 depending how long you want to vacation with us.  The cost is now projected / estimated to be $25/day includes room and board and short trip transportation costs.  It would be nice to have some extra spending money too, you don't need much but is always nice to have for longer trips or things to buy.  Also please spread the word so more people hear about this natural hygiene college / community, trust me I have no issues with renting even 2 houses and negotiating in Spanish to get a good deal.  Also we need early commitment so I know how many people are coming.
