Burning Off

Man that fog was some serious shit. I aint kidding. Big snow dump all over the east. Right in the middle of a big melt now. Never seen fog like that. .. Lord Shiva rising from the ground!

This is the beginning of Slipcraft 4.0.

It was only 600 miles away.  So I had to see it for myself

As road trips go, I’d give this a 4 out of 10… 10 being the last solo to you guys to get Double Blind Sided. My vision is really a pain in the ass. Being upside-down, needed to sit inside the box and think.

And if thinking inside the box makes you a Poe boy,  you  are not a loan. Ate that sand witch some time ago. She summons the Food Truck Rodeo. The machine definitely needs some tweaks. Feed the people.

First of all, it needs to be a quad. Second,the Nuvinci hub and the torquey hub motor have no relationship at all. Good and bad. But the shell is outstanding… once you get used it. It takes practice.

Meeting Cotter pins all four points. We talked about permaculture most of the time. He seems an outstanding officer beloved by his people… or so it would seem. Proof is in the product.

Would I merge one into 85mph beltway traffic?  No. Would I ride one in 30 mph city traffic? No sweat.  Encountered the fog on the way back. Stuck to the interstate. Crash less likely.

That was the part I did not like.   The crash.  Like the economy and shit… not the road.  But I have to stop driving a car… and replace with Slipcraft 4.0.  Bring the ship to life.

Slipcraft 4.0 must be a quad.  With an ELFin body and DaVinci Drive.  Hope by building this dream machine we can help change the world.  Little noise.  No gas.

No license, taxes or tags, insurance and paperwork that traps us all in the old paradigm.   Coast to coast on nothing but sunshine.  Aerodynamic penalty begins at 20mph.  That’s physics.

We spend $10k a year to support our cars.  Not measured in currency are corrosion to our planet and personality.  Slipcraft is one design to transition for two pennies a mile and lasts a lifetime.

Slipcraft, like any craft… aircraft, watercraft, spacecraft… are vehicles.  Craft also requires special skills and knowledge… like witchcraft or statecraft.  Slipcraft is manufactured locally.

Slipcraft is first/last mile transition beyond hope… to where we need to be.

    Jeb.. thanks for alerting me to  your recent post.   I love this idea…. it is where we must focus.  As we change, we need to find ways to do so.   I still need to make a  mortgage payment each month, but it’s becoming less and less about that, and more and more about the road ahead.   I am feeling that I need to shift, just trying to discover the best way to do this.  Planning a road trip right now… hoping to leave in June, and maybe not come back for school.   I want to stop being a school teacher.   I want to BE something else.   Being a slipcrafter may be the way to go.  I don’t know.   Seems you are hacking the bush to clear the way for others.   I don’t have the $3K to purchase this kind of craft — at least for now.  I already made the choice to go for the van.   Ford.   Don’t know if it was the better idea.   Want to go across the country.   Want to see the northwest.   Never have …. maybe there I’ll be able to think more clearly about here.    You talk to Diana?   How are things going?   You two have so much history, and a deep friendship behind all this bullshit.   Hurt runs deep.  I don’t want you to hurt anymore.   Make it stop.   Make it go away….    Any chance you can find a common ground and a place to stand together on something?   I hope so.   You are a good man, Jeb… and so many of us, kids included,  and friends and doggies… especially the doggie who lives with  you… love you.   Thinking of you as I wallow in my own angst trying to make it to the school year’s end and do a decent job of it.   I’m pretty good with kids, and don’t do a shabby job at all of conveying ideas to them.  But as far as being a public school teacher and being able to keep up with the tests, the data output, the paper trail… no, that’s what I really suck at doing.    I’m more interested in being part of making changes that will help us all stay alive and healthy and happy.    Hope your slipcraft comes to fruition very soon.  Eager to see how it rides and works for you.    love!  robin
