    "Interesting" approach to travel...

    "Adventure motorcycle barging. 20,000 km. 8 countries. 5½ months. Never paid to sleep. Never washed white-T/jeans. Never shaved. No meat. No hotels. No bullshit.


    The duo also lived by a set of strict rules referred to as The 10 Commandments, which included never paying for a hotel or hostel, abstaining from eating meat completely and never, ever wasting a drop of beer."


    You can read the full story here on TNT Magazine - worth a look just for the top pic of those unwashed tshirts.

    Thoughts?

    Well, they don't explain their ten commandments. They don't explain why they don't wash. They don't explain why they don't eat meat. So... they're nuts until they can explain otherwise. Being extreme is not a euphamism for being cool or great.

    That's just disgusting. There's no excuse for it. Seriously - they go couchsurfing? Where they are invited into people's homes? Looking (and smelling!) like that? Where's theie sense of self-respect - if not for themselves, for others around them?

    (Geesh, I sound like my mother now!)

    Title of this thread should be 'Skunky', not 'skinky' - although I presume you meant 'Stinky'!
