Insight into the future

So ive been following this blog for about a month now click clack gorilla. Through this site i have found a new found respect for what others consider trash. I have always been one to reuse things, not so much for the "green" aspect of it but more for the fact that if i can make it then i dont have to buy it. Over the years I have found many uses for things that most would simply throw away. Call this hoarding or being a pack rat if you must but with the little income i have i must make it stretch as far as i can. I can remember as a young child going to the local college and digging through the dumpsters at the end of the year finding all kinds of things that were just thrown out. Some where along the line i lost touch with those roots.

In this blog you will read about a young woman living in a "wagenplatz" an intentional community of  people "squatters" who live together on a piece of land in a variety of wheeled dwellings. She writes about life in such a community and her, Dumpster Dive of the week. She brings a new meaning to Recycle. Go ahead dont be scared, check out that dumpster in the back alley, you never know what you may find.
