MOAB, Utah, A 48-year-old man who has not used money in nine years and resides in a desert cave in Moab, Utah, said he loves his simple existence.
Daniel Suelo said while he shops for clothes by going through garbage, he is content with living an existence where he does not have to worry about a job, mortgage or other concerns that plague most U.S. residents, The Denver Post reported Sunday.
"The understanding that, really, we all possess nothing is the cornerstone of all spiritual endeavors and religions," Suelo said.
A former Peace Corps volunteer, Suelo said he also will not barter for food or rent because he considers bartering another form of currency.
Suelo began his unique style of living nine years ago despite having a master's degree in accounting and a degree in anthropology.
Despite his meager belongings and lack of a traditional home, Suelo insists he will never embrace a regular lifestyle again.
"I have no idea what the future holds, and I don't worry about it. But the longer I do this, it seems absurd to go back," he told the Post. "It would be like going back to slavery."
Daniel Suelo did the unthinkable and gave up all the worldly pleasures
All of 'em, huh?
Looks like the leg of a red, blowup doll behind him if you ask me.
School loans? Or did he just got to school, parasite off our tax dollars; then decide to let us eat his lifestyle? Imagine, some pretty young thing hasn't snatched him up.
He’s in the news again,hey?
And they say all the good one’s are taken.
Truly an inspiration to bums everywhere.

This is going to be all of us when Obama is done.
Sounds like he’s ahead of the curve...
Just another self-made & proud BUM.
Sooner or later this guy will be carted away playing with his lips.
Hopefully obambi will be his cavemate soon.
They are selling “simplicity” in order to push the envirowhacko agenda. Poor and penniless is in and soooo cool, wealth and comfort is out and so yesterday...(except for the elites of course).
“The understanding that, really, we all possess nothing is the cornerstone of all spiritual endeavors and religions,” Suelo said.
um, well, no, it really isn’t.....
