By not owning a vehicle – the familys initial austerity measure – their life has been shaped in profound ways.Peter and Andrea Tombrowski and their two young children have lived without a vehicle in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, since 1998.

Their stomping grounds, once a suburb of Calgary, is the setting for the adventures, challenges, trials and joys of their 13-year journey. For this family, urban camping means living well with limited resources in an urban environment. (No, the family doesnt live in a tent- they pay rent.)Part One of the book focuses on the familys smaller footprint living, small apartment, public transportation, travelling with children, employment, food, weather, clothing and equipment choices.Part Two of Urban Camping details seventeen trips the Tombrowski family has made over the past decade.

Read about how they shop for groceries, why “fast food” isnt very quick for them, three-hour commutes to the doctors office, their travels to distant relatives, along with descriptions of other treks. These trips reflect the familys hands-on reality and demonstrate what is possible when individuals transcend the challenges in their life.The driving (no pun intended) motto behind the Tombrowskis physical, emotional and mental resilience is: Work with what you have, stay positive and make things happen.In light of the worlds ongoing economic crisis, Peter and Andrea Tombrowski ask: “What part of your life can you forgo that will challenge you to become more skilled at living and surviving your life better?”
