Whenever I got stuff I did some research on, and want to share the findings, it'll be here:

Shepherd Living

A nomadic shepherd in the USA

A gentleman who lives as a nomadic shepherd, traveling around with a few dairy sheep, doing odd jobs for farmers, bartering sheep milk for food and other things.

The video is a great look into Aaron Fletcher's life, but the website is where it's at! He's got some interesting inventions, and some wonderful activism work for the homeless.

Tiny House Video

A tiny house vid that touches on a lot of topics

I've watched this video (even though it's a whole hour) at least 4 times. It's a walkthrough of Brad “Darby” Kittel's tiny house building operation, filmed in 2014. This eccentric gentleman has a wealth of knowledge on the materials he salvaged, sustainability and resource stewardship, house building methodologies, and whole bunch of other stuff.

Major thoughts prompted by this video: necessity of living small, keeping minimal possessions, which leads to a richer life in human interaction, spending as much time outdoors as possible, seeking a depth of knowledge in your field of expertise, and being creative to avoid government overreach [-:
