Allie Bombach’s independent film "23 feet" — people living simple lives on the road #Homes & Tours#Travel#mobile home#travel#vehicles April 6 | Offbeat Editors offbeatbride Photo by kat-tastrophe, posted in the Offbeat Home Flickr Group. Maddi sent me the Kickstarter fundraising page for indie film 23 feet, and I sort of put off taking a look at it. When I finally clicked through, it was on a day when I felt drained. Completely lacking any energy to deal with what feels like a scary world right now. (I AM IN MY LATE TWENTIES, I think too much, and I can have emo existential crises.) And… I loved the trailer. It showed me other crazy offbeats out there making brave explorations. You must watch. 23 Feet is the project of director Allie Bombach, who lives in a 1970 Airstream trailer. She traveled Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and California to document the lives of people living simple, mobile lives in order to do whatever they're passionate about. When Allie's completed the film, she'll move on to transforming her Airstream into an outdoor theater she'll use to showcase 23 Feet in the spaces and states which inspired it. Now, the project goal is way fulfilled — though I'm sure Allie'd love even more cash to work with! — so start scheming how you can catch a showing. Doesn't look like it's going to make a pass through Iowa, but sitting in a natural space at twilight, watching a film about people being awesome, sounds exactly like something we could all use. The filmmakers tell me the best way to follow along is on 23 Feet's Facebook page. Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

What a great thing to document. My husband and I dream of doing this. Next summer we're planning on taking off and touring through Colorado, up to Canada, and down through the west coast.

I get all dreamy about living a footloose life just watching the trailer! =) Reply I am so going to try and see this! I've always dreamed of living on the road, and it might be just the thing to warm the fiancé up to the idea of at least a summer of it.
