Just 15 minutes of farm labor gets you a cot in the cyclist trailer and the warm company of Gillian, the founder of a hostel called Alternative Colorado. We began our stay with this energetic New Zealander by watching an English murder movie followed by a giant YouTube spiral. Gillian’s curious about everything. She lived on a boat for 10 years, is now a teacher, and sometimes works at the local prison. Her motto is "If I don't spend it, I don't have to earn it."
