We're launching a new series of inspiration posts called #adventuremobile. This hashtag has popped up around the design / aesthetic minded community, mostly accompanying a photo of a pristine International Scout or anything to do with Westfalia. And while we love great cars and great gear, they are certainly not prerequisites for adventure. A conversation, a beat up pair of shoes, a song are all #adventuremobiles. We can't think of a better place to start than with Harlan Hubbard's Shantyboat...
“I had no theories to prove. I merely wanted to try living by my own hands, independent as far as possible from a system of division of labor in which the participant loses most of the pleasure of making and growing things for himself. I wanted to bring in my own fuel and smell its sweet smell as it burned on the hearth I had made. I wanted to grow my own food, catch it in the river, or forage after it. In short, I wanted to do as much as I could for myself, because I had already realized from partial experience the inexpressible joy of so doing.” – Harlan Hubbard
