Scott David Gordon started his trip from Cortes Island B.C. and is headed to Nova Scotia to meet his dad for the first time.
“I never met my father and I don’t have an exact address but I know he lives in Nova Scotia, so I’ve been hitchhiking for two months now and I left Vancouver Island. It took me five days to get to Ontario and I’ve been traveling in Ontario for about a month. I’ve been going back and forth between Quebec and Ontario,” said Gordon.
“I’ll be staying in the area for three days. Then I’ll head to Montreal where I will probably spend the winter and continue my journey towards Nova Scotia in the spring, so I’m not stuck wandering around Nova Scotia in the winter,” said Gordon.
His traveling partner, who goes by the name of “Sal”, is a self-described hippy who met Gordon while he was traveling in Ontario. His trek started in Saltspring Island, B.C.
“I’ve been traveling for four or six months, I forget the time. I went to Ontario for that beautiful hippy gathering called The Rainbow Gathering, where a lot of people get together in the forest like a temporary lucent spot and build a community. We have kitchens, we have activities and workshops. It’s near Mattawa but it’s 30 kilometers in the bush,” said Sal.
“I don’t know where I am heading. I’m just going with the wind, meeting amazing people. I don’t want to be in one place. Back home, I operate an eco-village in the mountains and native land and I have permission and the mandate to take care of that parcel of land and it’s the deal I have with them to let me live on it,”
“Honestly I love moving around, help others, expand my consciousness, experience love, you know, all the good hippy stuff. I met this beautiful being [Gordon] at The Rainbow Gathering, and I just knew I wanted to travel with him and help him in his journey. We met amazing people along the way and enjoyed wonderful nature, vistas and villages like this one,” concluded Sal.
