Highway 61 Revisited Phase 1

I set off from Duluth around noon, after a jet-black pint of oat ale and a smoked (local) trout salad at the pub, and it’s taken me 4 hours to make a 2 hour trip to Grand Marais, due to all the interesting stuff I ran across. Highway 61 (yes the very one) all the way and it runs along the north shore of Lake Superior (which, by the way, and unlike say, Lake Michigan, is cold all year). Good music on radio all the way.

“…But the second mother was with the seventh son

And they were both out on Highway 61.”

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.
