Sometimes a family is a sponsor, a skipper, a son from a previous marriage, 11 other French guys, and a 40-meter trimaran.

Is this about Spindrift 2? I just read about their dismasting on the way to the starting line. Bummer! But good that everyone’s okay.

daskibum:

White Pass Alaska/British Columbia.  This is pretty much my fall color shooting this year.  White Pass goes from Skagway into British Columbia.  It was known as dead horse trail by miners going to the Yukon.  Was on a tour bus, so kinda had to shoot where it stopped.

fastcompany:

Handmade by Fair Trade artisans in Bali out of bamboo, these ships sail through air, not water. Wind fills the sails of the double-masted boat to send it skyward. Though it looks delicate, bamboo has greater tensile strength than steel, and can shrug off crashes on beaches or grass.

I didn’t remember either, @echojar, but guesswork and google led me to the tag story I told in this post.

I was just thinking about my stretch of road. I need to get out there and harvest the cigarette butts.
