Spanish Motorcyclists on a Harley in California

I ran across these guys last night. Left to right, Guillem Ramirez and Xerta Puig. They flew from Barcelona to Chicago, rented the Harley, and were finishing up an 18-day vacation. They travelled on Highway 66 and, were on their way into San Francisco, then heading down Highway 1 to L.A., where they’ll drop off the bike and fly back to Spain. He’s a builder and she has a business that sells nativity items.

   (When we start up The Shelter Blog in a few weeks, I’ll be putting much of the building stuff on the new blog, and doing more posts like this.)

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.
