View Full Version : On the Road Noob
04-06-2010, 10:01 PM
Hello everyone. Well for for 9 months a few years ago I did completely raw vegan (well except for maple syrup)... anyway I have been on the road now for going on 4 years, on a motorcycle. Everything I own fits on my bike, and I camp on the land. I travel east, west, north and south depending on weather etc.
I haven't been raw at all this past 4 years and I really want to go back to my natural state. So anyway, I saw this forum and thought I would come get some support and ideas. Of course I will post my questions elsewhere but that is why I am here.
So hello, glad to meet ya's and I am looking forward to the support I hope to get from this community.
oh... I am not always online either, but will still post and check as I can.
Thanks for being here

Sounds like a brilliant kind of life! Bit jealous!
I travel and stay raw, but I have a suitcase with stuff in it and research the local fruit shops and health food stores where I'm traveling to.
You might start by getting some green powders and taking them on board the motorcycle. If you have access to the net before you get somewhere and are staying in a place you can at least sore some fruit and veg it's doable.

I also travel and usually pack a blender. If you're able to squeeze it in, you may want to do the same. Perhaps further down the road(pun intended) you might share your successful camping adventures in a "rough and raw" blog.:D

Jealous? Why? What's stopping you from "roughing it out"? As we know from another thread, you're the man of the house, right?:p

klomasius, I hope you can be a bit more laid back, I should tell you the traveling life isn't always how it's romanticized in the media, especially trying to stay raw. There ISN'T always fruit on every corner. Anyhow, I've nothing but good wishes for you and your family.

hhmmm... Did my post not come out jolly?
See thats the problem with text, you can't see me!
Understood about the difficulty of raw while travelling. I have done it quite a number of times with success, even when I've been to remote areas that lack fresh fruit and veg (where if the bridge is flooded like it was when we were there, no fresh stuff can get in) and been fine.
It can be done, even in the heartland of redneckedness, there's almost always a supermarket in every town and if there is one, there's fresh fruit and veg. Plus in an area the size of a chopping board I could carry a chopping board, knife, green powder, some dried fruits and nuts, some raw bars, some condiments and other bits and pieces that made raw life so much easier on the go.
I have taken a blender while travelling, but then on other occasions haven't, either way I've fared well. Now that i have my small travel blender it's be even easier.
To me, living off a lot of fruit, it's really easy wherever I go. It seems to be lot easier to live raw than to live as a veg in some places as the fresh produce section is almost always available.
It can be done, even by a lazy arse such as myself!

Haven't been down under yet, but some parts of the "third world" are well, challenging, even for a cooked food vegetarian. I (jolly well:)) speak from personal experience. Plenty of "food" shops in Asia. Unfortunately the only thing edible in most mini-markets is bottled water. If you search long and hard enough though you'll find someplace selling produce.
