1978 Sep 07 (Easy Rider)

Ironically, the Dude first saw this 
while serving in her majesty’s armed forces. 
He went down to the military base movie house
and witnessed one of those cinematic moments that never leave you

With its themes of wide open spaces, 
                  freedom and realness of thinking..
It made quite an impression to the 17 year old's mind.
He remembers sleeping little that Thursday night.

The two scenes that still stay with him are..
and how people attach different meanings

The other was "The Weight" scene
which effectively opened his ears to the band “The Band”.

When people ask "why Earthships?"
It is not really because I saw that one Reynolds lecture a few years back
It is because of a culmination of life experiences 
of which - this was a key one

 SUPPORT THE DUDE!!! in his noble quest to build Earthship Hut. He has a # of people to convince! LIKE below FACEBOOK
