A Man And His 3 Mules On The Road

“John Sears, 65, has given up life with cars and houses for life outdoors with a trio of four-legged equines.

For the last 10 years, the man who grew up in Bay Area suburbia now lives entirely outdoors, traveling the western United States in the company of three mules ages 13, 20 and 28 years old, respectively. They go by “Little Girl,” “Lady” and “Pepper.”

“We’re claiming our right to be outside,” said Sears, referring to a “we” that includes him, his mules, and “the spirits” – or the collective, living energy that surrounds them.

   On Tuesday, he walked along Bolsa Road in Gilroy with a silver horseshoe – or rather, a muleshoe – in hand. He declined to share why he carries the shoe, but said he saves shoes that fall off during his travels.

   Sears is a walking kind of man. He and his entourage have plodded through various states including Wyoming, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Kansas and Texas, regularly walking at least 10 to 20 miles a day. In the summer, the days are longer and the group walks further. In the winter, they scout out a place to camp earlier and don’t wander as far.

“Who are we? Where are we from? We are mules. We are from the outside. We live outside all day, every day. Where are we going? Nowhere,” states Sears’ website, 3mules.com… “

    wow…seems like an amazing person…

    I hope he wins his court case.

    Wonder how he pays his day to day expenses…Although, if you go through to his site, the expenses are very frugal.

    The wealthy look on in frightening disbelief. And will put road blocks to stop his travels in there cities. Hell the youth might do the same.Who would fight their wars or work part time for them.
    They might drop out and travel this righteous path.And then the economy would collapse because the youth will find a way to get out of their economic burden put on then by evil bankers.
