      Hello,

      My wife, Andrea, and I recently published a book entitled Urban Camping: A
      Testament to Living Without a Vehicle. Andrea and I have lived in Calgary
      (Alberta, Canada) since 1997. In November 1998, we sold our only vehicle.
      Seven years and two children later, we wouldn't have it any other way.

      Our book is called Urban Camping but we don't live in a tent - we pay rent!
      'Camping' refers to our simpler lifestyle and to the adventure that living
      without a vehicle brings. We carry our groceries home, walk to most of our
      destinations, and strive to keep our life "uncluttered." We've trekked
      through downpours, fog, snowstorms, hail, freezing temperatures, high wind
      chills, and stifling heat. We are regularly asked if we're tourists because
      of our gear; large backpacks we wear around the city and are rarely seen
      without.



      Dr. David Suzuki calls our book “a very important model for other people.”
      Urban Camping describes our life in sprawling, car-centric Calgary
      (population one million) but its principles and practices of less
      vehicle-dependence can be applied to most urban settings.



      We have self published our book and as such are responsible for all that is
      required in bringing it to the public. If you believe that our book and our
      example are worthy then please pass on this information so that more people
      have the opportunity to find out about our book. You may check us out at
      www.urbancamping. <http://www.urbancamping.ca> ca . We need help.



      Thank you.

      Peter Tombrowski

        What's really nice is that this is a Canadian family living a carfree
        life. Many times we've heard "Isn't it too cold in Canada to go carfree?".
