In 2013 artists Patrick Jones, Meg Ulman, their sons Zephyr and Woody, and Jack Russell, Zero, got itchy feet and decided on a sabbatical from their permaculture life in Daylesford, Victoria. With a twist, of course.
The family are eager cyclists and homesteaders, and Patrick has special knowledge in foraging, so they would cycle their way to Cape York, Queensland, and forage and live as cheaply as possible along the way.
This is a story of “guerrilla camping, hunting, foraging and bartering their permaculture skills – and on a diet of free food, bush tucker and the occasional fresh roadkill. They joined an anti-fracking blockade, spent time in Aboriginal communities, documented edible plants along the way, and braved the country’s most hazardous highways.” The Art of Free Travel puts a whole new spin on the notion of living frugally, touching every aspect of their life, and no doubt inspiring the reader to explore some of their ideas and skills.
