In 2000, Daniel Suelo (previously on Neatorama) pulled his life savings - all $30 - from his pocket and put it inside a phone booth and walked away for good from money. He has since lived without using any currency.
That's right - Say hello to the The Man Who Quit Money.:
Daniel Suelo lives in caves in the canyonlands of Utah. He survives by harvesting wild foods and eating roadkill.
He has no job, no bank account and does not accept government welfare. In fact, Suelo has no money at all.
Suelo may have shunned all the trappings of modern American life, but he is not an isolationist.
Since abandoning money in 2000, the former cook from Moab, Utah has remained an active member of his community and avid blogger.
