Member Supported, Never Corporate Sponsored

I'm Richard Nikoley. Free The Animal began in 2003 and as of 2022, I've written and published 5,000 posts. I write what I wish...from health, diet, and food; to travel and lifestyle; to politics, social antagonism, expat-living...location and time independent—while you sleep—income. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances.

Free the Animal really means to free yourself to reach your ideal potential in all areas of your life, learn from mistakes and successes, and move on.

Fasten your seat belts. There's no chance you won't encounter turbulence.

Pool Rant and Back to America?

Mistaken For Richard Gere
