Jan 27, 2010
Outside Magazine

Ben Nemtin, one of the stars of "The Buried Life," has some valuable tips for traveling on the cheap, based on what he and his buddies have been up to for the past four years. What started off as travel clips on YouTube now airs Monday nights as a legit show on MTV. Nemtin and his buds created a bucket list of 100 things they want to do before they die, and they travel around in a purple bus, looking to check things off the list and produce their own shoots while they're at it. How do they keep it low-budget? By shopping at thrift stores, eating food from sponsors, getting around on skateboards, and relying on the kindness of strangers. Check out more tips in The New York Times's interview with Nemtin.
