In a nutshell I’m planning to cycle around the world, getting stoned with people wherever I go. The blog (www.healthy-stoner.com) started out as a response to the classic image of someone who happens to enjoy weed as an unmotivated, unhealthy and sedentary being. As someone who enjoys nothing more than ripping a vaporiser and doing intense physical exercise I couldn’t see much out there for people like me so I decided to start videoing mine and my friends’ stoned adventures and putting them on the internet. The first post on the blog is literally the first video I ever made so I’m very much learning on the job and I was given the name Roger Boyd in this Details magazine article so I decided it’d be rude not to go with it.
A few years ago I cycled from Land’s End to John O’ Groats with a good friend of mine. After two weeks of riding, covering just over 1000 miles I felt like the hardest bit was done and I could have gone on forever and from then on I’ve always wanted to cycle internationally. I’m self funding this and it’s been 18 months of hard saving but I’m now getting close to setting a departure date. I can’t say more than that currently but watch this space!
What I can say is that it is close enough to start appealing to anyone who’d like to meet up, get high and chat about the weed situation where they live. If people are happy to let me pitch my tent in their garden for a night and maybe take a shower then that’d be really excellent, and the ultimate dream would be to have people come and join me for a leg of the journey. What I’d love to do is to be able to plot a route around the world and stick pins in a map in each place I’ve got fellow weed enthusiasts to get high and chat shit with. Doing that in a different place every night is my ultimate dream!
As it is I’ve made plans to meet up with people in Serbia, Slovakia, France, and of course Spain. I’m working towards my life becoming a non-canine, THC infused version of the Littlest Hobo. I just googled the Littlest Hobo and discovered S1 E1 is called ‘Smoke’. Every stop I make, I make a new friend, can’t stay for long just turn around and I’m gone again…
