Hippies suck because they don’t do anything. They bemoan the evils of the world, but instead of solving anything, they just sit on their asses smoking pot and singing songs about “the children.”

Hippies suck because they don’t do anything. They bemoan the evils of the world, but instead of solving anything, they just sit on their asses smoking pot and singing songs. The only problem that smoking pot ever solved was the conundrum of how to make jam bands tolerable, and the the last time a song fixed anything was when John Lennon sung “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” and the Vietnam War came to a screeching halt within minutes. Hippies don’t do shit, and that’s why it’s so refreshing to see someone with good intentions actually do something.

Emily Richmond, a film student in LA, is traveling around the world and with a bunch of hippie motives, like “connecting” people, giving away eyeglasses and school supplies to third world nerds, and promoting renewable energy. Groovy shit aside, the most interesting part of her plan is that she wants to circumnavigate the globe in a boat, the S/V Bobbie, all by herself — 24,000 miles in 24 months and she’s going to blog it. Emily’s still prepping Bobbie for the journey so you haven’t missed anything yet. Watch it all go down

    The sad thing is, she’s probably going to be murdered by pirates when they discover that all she’s got on board are reading glasses and Trapper Keepers.

  12. Skipper says:

    Cool. I wonder how many Urban Outfitters she’ll be able to hit. But, seriously, by the end of the voyage her scarf collection is going to be epic.

  19. total fucking hippie says:

    this isn’t that hard I know and have known a lot of people that have done similar things I even know of a land project in washington that buts up to the puget sound and builds wood boats there is also a boat building school in seattle that you can work at for free but in like 6 months or something end up with your own boat I knew a girl that did it now all she does is surf and sail pretty awesome sounding but I like being in one place and knowing it

  20. kure kure takora says:

    honestly it’s not so much the difficulty of doing this, it’s having the free time to actually DO it at this point of GPS navigation, MRE’s, etc.

  21. Maxipad says:

    I dont care how you get there, just get there if you can. The Asian pirates are the worst, they will nibble on anything. Dont show off your back door to much.

  22. yummaplesurp says:

    for the guy wondering if she has health insurance. that’s going to make a big different 800 miles from the shore of Fuji if she falls and brakes her ankle/forearm/wrist/becomes sick from dehydration/sun and or heat stroke. And the list could go on, but you get the idea. Lets just hope she has invested in a Wilderness First Responder (advantaced first aid) class.
