Burning vans, graffiti, internet weirdness...

Below is Christine Hewitt recently her van with all her belongings went up in flames.  I imagine this is an awful experience, she is a photographer and lost her hard drives with all her work.

I bumped into her blog, Me Van Bike, while wandering around lost on the internet.  I'm not sure about her adventures but her last post was such a fantastic idea I just had to repeat it here.  All natural graffiti, imagine if all that ugly, spray painted, tagging/blight was instead carefully curated messages made of moss.  I know it is kind of an insane dream but I love it.  

Me, Van, Bike, posts about this fabulous idea here.  I bumped into her blog from this other dude who I suspect is a hipster camper person.  It turns out an entire eco system full of nostalgia for old Danner boots and 70's camping equipment catalogs exists. Who knew..?  It seems pretty cool check it out.  Cold Splinters.  You can even buy a new (made in Portland) pair of shorts modeled after the old Boy Scouts shorts.  That has hipster written all over it.
