Pro Snowboarder Mike Basich And His Really Rustic Tiny Home On Wheels...

Snow is in Mike Basich's blood.
It's part of his DNA. It's his life.
He and his girlfriend don't have the time or the inclination for much else.
But they do like to be warm, dry and cosy after a day playing on the white stuff.
They built this very rustic tiny house on wheels in about three weeks. There wasn't time to waste.
What the hell are you waiting for...

The von Engelbrechten Family Quit The Rat Race For Life On A Remote Tongan Island...

The family von Engelbrechten, Boris and Karen and their sons Jack, Luca and Felix live on the remote Tongan island of Fofoa
in the Vava'u Group.
Having sailed there and spent many months there some years ago I can assure you it's one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
So who could blame them swapping the insane commute from a little village near Bath in south west England along the M4 to work in London when they could be living the dream miles from anywhere and away from the pressures of consumerism and western bureaucracy.
There's more about them here.
If you can dream it, you can do it...

Jilted Husband Gives His Wife Half Of Everything...

Warm hearted, generous Martin wanted to show his wife Laura, who left him and their marriage of twelve years for another that he still loved her. So he gave her half of everything. The couch, the car, the television, the iphone, the laptop, the dvd player, the nuptial bed, the letterbox, half his vinyl collection, his bike, the dining chairs, the remote and even his best pal Teddy.
What a guy! Hard to see why she left him really...
