At the Mocean Project we are very driven by simplicity, fun and being creative among other things. This video profiles all the those ideals and more in an inspiring package.
Here is a old video Joe Fox and myself put together of us training and making up some little circuits. get creative, have fun in the fresh air!
In keeping with the spirit of “living a life in Mocean”…we turn any endeavor we can into a body activated one! Like making a smoothie for example…yeah, we tend to make a lot of smoothies. They are easy, nutrient dense and have turned into an on the road power fuel for us! Why use electricity when you can use human power?! We have a hand crank blender that we take along for the ride…clamp it down in the van and hand crank away. What comes is a power packed drink to fuel as for the next ride…whether that’s on a wave, a bike trail, back country trail or some crazy back road! It allows us to be healthy and creative while on the road, amped up for whatever may come our way.
So we are currently caretaking for two properties, and one is right in the heart of snow country and has a long sloping dirt driveway that is about 150 feet long. Last year our plowing bill here was upwards of $400. that is a lot of money and its a lot of potential movement thats good for the body that we can’t get back. So…this year things are destined to change.
Today I went out and bought a Garant Snow Sleigh for $45 that I’m convinced that will not only replace the need for plows at this property but also at the other property we caretake that has a shorter but still good size driveway.
What the hell?! I mean growing up thats the way it was until we got a tractor but we still had to install chains and get all of the hard to reach spots which often took hours and yup, made us stronger!
So the experiment is on! Plus I’ll take one for the team and review the Poly sleigh shovel 22″ with wear strip, steel handle for everyone to see how it holds up. Its even made in Canada..gasp..not China!! Todays undertaking went very well but we shall see.
Need another great way to move, have fun while improving all around balance, coordination and poise? check out Slacklining.
Meg and I have grabbed a Gibbon Slackline and began trying to figure it out. The other night we made a big fire and had some friends over and set it up and had a blast.
Below is an instructional video on how to use a slackline courtesy of Gibbon, the brand we have.
