Off the Road Again/Wheels & Water Book Rolling

What a relief to be back home. Took my first hard bike ride in months yesterday. Going to start running lightly. I’m working out in a gym 2-3 times a week to build back upper body strength. I’m mainly trying to revitalize damaged shoulders. One thing that Bill Pearl said about weight training: within a month or so you  see results. The principle of progressive resistance. Muscle tone improvements are visible (and feelable). Encouraging.

   I’m cookin on the new book (click here). 6 pages laid out (old school style design before it gets MacIntoshed). I’m in contact with a bunch of road people and boat people. All kinds of rigs. Getting them to send in 250–300 word write-ups and pix. Lots of material coming in by end of August. Nomadic Living in the 21st Century.

    Lloyd, I love your blog and your work. I'm a liveaboard on my 29' sailboat on Lake Union in Seattle. I practice intentional, simple living in an intensely urban environment. I happily choose a small, affordable footprint, as it allows me to only work part-time and enjoy life as I like: relaxed and with plenty of time to do what I want. Let me know if you would like more info, I'm happy to share. Cheers!

    Hi Lloyd –

    Yeah, us geezers need to keep in shape as best we can. I can't run anymore (trashed knee), but I walk a lot. My 'gym' is a local community garden that grows produce for a food bank – I'm the compost guy. I spend a couple of hours twice a week turning, screening and rebuilding three on-going compost piles. Some of the other volunteers think I'm nuts to do all that hard work. Maybe so, but now after a few months of this I know better 'cause my upper body and stamina have improved immensely. Guess I'll have to find a 'real' gym after I put the compost 'to bed' for the winter.

    Best –
