Last afternoon of Lost Coast hike

Took off shoes (sand was hot!) and crawled into shade of this beach shack to rest for 15 min., then pushed on. Wind blowing hard and it was behind me! I put out arms to act like sails and got gentle assist.

“May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back…”

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.

  1. You sure know how to keep the road ahead interesting while keeping "the wind at your back." I look to you for inspiration and the evidence that we can keep doing what excites and challenges us… age be damned.
