Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I read in the 90ies about some German fellow who lived in the swedish forests. He was not harming anyone, he was keeping the rules of allemansrätten, and living of foraged fruits, berries and mushrooms and such. He ordered to deport as he did not earn enough to be considered working in Sweden. And if anyone missed it, the right to free movement in the EU deals mainly with the right to free movement for those well of or working, not for the poor un-working.

Do not remember what happened though, maybe he is still walking the swedish forests, eating his berries.

i knew a guy who drove a 1920's tractor down to italy from germany hauling a gypsy caravan, all on back roads!

the mind boggles.
