About Me
Finally living on the road with my oh so awesome soon to be husband with his traveling job while backpacking and hotspring-ing throughout the wilderness every chance we get.... goodbye cities and societies! We are now on the Big Island and loving every single minute of it, I finally feel like I am home :)
Soon to be buying our off the grid house here in Hawaii and fully rely on ourselves and our organic crops... early retirement is the key, be a slave to no one, no government.

Just opened my Etsy shop, selling all sorts of fun dread accessories, including hand knit wool tams... check it out! Hippy Fish
How long have you been dreading?
Since August 2011... most recent set since August 2, 2012.
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
My first set of dreads were all natural, using suggested BS rinses mixed with ground sea salt. I do a "super" soap wash with Dr. Bronner's mixing just a bit into my BS rinse when it seems necessary. Aside from the occasional hat or bandana, the only other things going into my hair will be beads, sleeves or wraps.
This is my second set and I did TnR, but I'm still maintaining with the same hygiene methods and perhaps (for the sake of speed) using a coconut oil based castile soap bar.

Hey there. I saw your post asking about Reiki and Astrology. I'm also very interested in Reiki, I'm actually going to my first Reiki session this friday in hopes of realigning and recharging my chakras and hopefully helping with my pain and healing from my accident. I got hit by a car back in december and had multiple fractures, a hemorrhage, a subdural hematoma, and a blood clot so i should have plenty of areas to notice improvements lol. If you're interested i can let you know how it goes. But i also wanted to add you as a friend because me and my girlfriend are going to be purchasing land in belize and living off grid and self-sustainably and would like to consult with other people doing it for advice. Also we plan on backpacking around until then too. So i hope its not annoying if we ask you some questions here and there lol.

just a warning you may become addicted! it is such a blast! & if you can't find many different kool-aid shades near you (some places don't have much of a selection) let me know & i can send you some, we get most of the colors/flavors round here. if you want any ideas on methods (how to get a gradient, ice cube dyeing, mason jar dyeing, painting whatever) just ask! i think i've tried most of them :)

enjoy yourself & share your results! i'm excited to see :)

Bike Day

Posted on August 9, 2012 at 1:39am 0 Comments

I've been living on the big island for almost a month n half now.  My fiance and I are still "getting things together" and have only a pickup which I can't drive... so I've been anxious to get some wheels so I can enjoy this beautiful place.

Being here is what triggered my thoughts of beginning my dreads again, and I finally got the big inspiration to do them…
