I first came across Holstee on a 3AM pickup for a ride to Burning Man. During the eight hour drive, I was feeling a bit outside my comfort zone; alone, in unfamiliar territory, and going to a very strange place. It was here in the Holstee-Mobile that I began to learn about Mike, Dave, Fabian, and their Manifesto. After spending some time with Fabian, Dave, and Mike, it quickly became evident that they had not just invited me into their car for a rideshare, but had adopted me into their sprawling extended family. It was equally evident that they were practicing what they preached, and living the lifestyle they espoused. Today their Manifesto reminds me to prioritize what matters because there is nothing outside my control, that there is always a way to make time for something you love, and that I should enjoy every last moment because life is short.
