Sleepless in Vancouver

The reason for this flurry of posts is that I have a 4-hour wait for my flight home today, and also that I seem to be accumulating an ever-increasing bunch of photos and cool info.

  This is my new mode of luggage for air travel. No more sweating it at the stinking baggage carousel. The larger one is a Rick Steves carry-on backpack. No wheels — too heavy. I limit myself to what I can fit in these two bags. Much of the weight is electronic gear: 11″ MacBook Air, along with DVD player, backup hard drive; iPad; iPhone; Garmin GPS; lightweight Epson digital projector PLUS cameras: Canon Powershot S-95, Panasonic Lumix G-1 with 3 lenses, and a Sony Cybershot panoramic camera.What a nerd, eh?

  I get home tonight and then take off early Monday Morning to do some teaching at the North House Folk School on Lake Erie. They’ve got me a cabin on the lake, and on Thursday I’m paddling a canoe in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and I’m pretty excited about that.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
