Hi Everyone,

My is Brian Farr and I am a medical student traveling North America doing my clinical rotations. I am traveling in my truck camper and am hoping to find inexpensive ways to boondock but if hydro/water can be provided I can pay $15-$20 a night. Here is a little more information about me.

I am the sole owner and operator of Nutritious Nation, a healthcare practice with an emphasis on nutrition and massage therapy (currently non-operational). I have completed two post-secondary programs, earned the designations of Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP-2008) and Registered Massage Therapist (RMT-2010), have completed a Psychology degree at Ryerson University and am currently about to start my fifth semester at St. Martinus University Faculty of Medicine. From the time I was very young, I have always been very motivated in accomplishing my goals. I trained as a competitive gymnast and power tumbler during my teen years, ranking first in my division at the provincial level. I remain an avid cyclist, riding with 300 others each year on the 600-kilometre “Friends for Life” bike rally from Toronto to Montreal to raise money for PWA (2005-2013).

My volunteer work for the past eight years has focused on helping those who are living with and suffering from HIV/AIDS. At PWA, I help with reception, food bank distribution, fundraising, and designing and presenting nutrition seminars (2005-2013). As a massage therapy student, I particularly enjoyed my volunteer work with hospice organizations such as the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (2009), Central Neighborhood House (2010), and Fife House (2010). Working with stroke, cancer, and HIV/AIDS patients has developed my passion for assessment, rehabilitation, and care for those living with chronic disease.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Somedays I'm a jack-of-all-trades and others I feel like a jack-of-no-trades. I have quite a bit of experience in healthcare.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Never done it but will let you know once I find that special spot.
