Surf Matter Is (P)art of Wave

"… The benefit of surfing for decades is not that you progress along some rocket to the moon skill increase curve
but the slow gradual understanding of the pleasures of the sun, the wind and the  water."

Vietnamese Surf Boats

Fabulous article on fishing boats sent this morning by Godfrey Stephens. Click here. Scroll down to "Two Very Different Surf Boats Near Quy Nhon" for this article, but the whole article is full of unique boat info.

These guys killed it yesterday. Louie says there's the expression, "We're in 'em," meaning everything's working, like we're in the (school of) salmon. They had over 20 of these beauties, 22-25 pounds each, at $8/lb, it's $160-200 per fish.

Discovered this beauty earlier this morning. In the foggy mist…

About 7:30 AM this morning. Got here last night

Movin' On

I love doing this blog. For the past few years, I've done at least a post per day. But I've reached a new stage now, with a body of work to do, so I'm no longer going to do daily posts, 365. I'll be putting things up here, but less frequently. I'm also going to quit checking email daily. I need less electronics in my life.
Here are my upcoming projects:
The Shelter Blog I'm going to put some major effort into it. It's now up and running, and I have a lot of articles I want to do for builders (Round Barns of Oregon, Master Builders of the Middle Ages, Aisle-and-bay-divided Timber Frame Barns, SunRay Kelley's Latest Cob Yurts…). The goal is to have this blog be as good as one of our books. (Check it out in 6 months.)
YouTube Videos 1-1/2 minute videos on each of our building books, Tools for the Half-Acre Homestead, Office Workout Equipment, Building a raised garden bed, splitting shakes, washing dishes…
Stretching - the Pocketbook This book has sold over 3 million copies and now we are doing it as a pocketbook.
Book on Barns
Book on Small Homes
Sheesh, until I started writing this, I didn't realize how much great stuff there is to do!
Actually, will be posting in the next few days, as I'm on the road, up at my friend Louie's in the NorCal woods.
