Englishman Ed March's Worldwide Adventures on Honda C90 Motorcycle

Lloyd,

… Ed March is this kid from the sticks, down in south west England. He is a bit of a nutter, with a great attitude. He travels on a Honda C90. An old reliable tiny engined “step through” motorbike/scooter moped ? He has had a few adventures to bike rallies, then up to the arctic circle. Then — he boxed it up and shipped it to Malaysia and rode it home. 14,000 miles across Asia, India and Europe. Its a truly epic journey.

   I watched most of it compulsively on youtube. Then he did a kickstarter/crowdfunding appeal and managed to raise enough to get the videos edited up and released as a DVD.

   To me he is a hero. Has great attitude and will go a long way.

   Check him out:

   Enjoy

Jay's Customized Trailer

Last night I had a great crowd at Builders Booksource in Berkeley for a presentation on Tiny Homes on the Move. Two tiny homes were parked outside: Rick Auerbach’s pickup truck road rig, and Jay Marlette’s copper-roofed trailer, as shown here:

“Lloyd…As requested, here are some pics of the trailer. I made this trailer after I made the decision to drop my crazy mortgage and devote less time working and more time with my family and to enjoy projects like this one. So far we’ve taken it to Kanab Utah, Burning Man, Grass Valley, and other little trips. Its a 1976 Scamp and I went with a Vardo theme. The roof is wood, fiberglass, and copper anodized aluminum. The roof was designed to house a solar panel, a canopy and to function as a bike rack for two long cargo bikes. Friends and artists helped a lot with this.

-Jay”
