  1. Yippity shiit....he is a very selfish person living off the cast offs of society. A real life freegan....eating roadkill is not a way of life...and dumpster diving can be hazardous to your health as well. So he makes no money and takes no govt handouts...pretty soon his lifestyle will kill him and no one will miss this guy. Living in the high desert of Utah is not easy granted....but he pays no rent....just another west coast wacko..... whatever floats your boat.....

  2. Without mentioning why and how he came to this lifestyle change, this story is incomplete and not worth reporting.
