Welcome to Dirtbag Diver!

Urban Dictionary, “Dirtbag”: A person who is committed to a given (usually extreme) lifestyle to the point of abandoning employment and other societal norms in order to pursue said lifestyle. Dirtbags can be distinguished from hippies by the fact that dirtbags have a specific reason for their living communaly and generally non-hygenically; dirtbags are seeking to spend all of their moments pursuing their lifestyle
The best examles of dirtbags and dirtbagging are the communities of climbers that can be found in any of the major climbing areas of North America–Squamish, BC; Yosemite, CA; Joshua Tree, CA; etc.

My name is Teddy Garlock, I am a hobbyist explorer living in a van bouncing between Rochester NY and Fort White FL. I like to think my hygiene is a bit better than the definition, and I’ve managed to hold down full time employment since the age of 18. However, I do fancy myself a bit of a dirtbag, in a good way! I have dabbled in a lot of various adventures, I hope you enjoy reading about them!
