Hi Seasteaders. I go by my childhood nickname, ‘sandy’ , because i’m in my third childhood now. I read ‘Smart rugs and Nutrients’ in 1990, and plan to live to 150, so i wont be middle aged until 2018. Since 1996 i’ve been taking selegine and hydergine daily, which is otc here in Bangkok. I believe a seastead is the only hope for the long term survival of humanity. In a ham’n'egg breakfast, the chicken is involved, but the pig is committed. Well, i’m committed. Here’s a list of unusual things i’ve done:
1. Walked thru the Mesa Verde cliff dwellings before the public was prevented from doing this.
2. As an explorer scout i navigated one leg of a B-52 training flight.
3. I spent 6 weeks in the alto plano (3300m) of Peru at the Instituto Geofisico del Peru in Huancayo. and
participated briefly in the plaza de toros at a village patron saint festival where we ate barbeque guinea pig.
4. My only sailing experience was windsurfing in SanFran bay.
5. I drove a suzuki GS-850 sport touring bike in SanJose for 10 yrs without accident. It can go from 0-60 in 4 sec, but dont look at the speedo, listen for valve float to shift.
6. I swam 20m across a snow melt lake in the Immigrant Wilderness to a big rock, dried off, had a toke, then swam back.
7. I’ve eaten several kinds of bugs here in Thailand.
8. I’ve ridden the cog train to Leadville in Colorado.
9. I went 24 hrs without speaking as part of the Order of the Arrow initiation.
10. I leased a Dodge Stealth for 6 mo and got a $500 speeding ticket.
11. While working at the U of T Geomagnetics lab i memorized the value of pi to 17 decimal places.
12. I was on the signal bridge of the USS Strong during a storm in the North Sea when a rogue wave washed over it. Normally that bridge is about 35 m above water.
So, on with the show. I’ve been posting on the Active Projects forum, czek it out.
