SUP Paddler Circumnavigating Lake Superior

picture via startribune

A UMD student is attempting to be the first person to circumnavigate Lake Superior on his stand up paddle board. The article states he is really making some good progress, and has been averaging thirty miles per day.

 Check out the story here: http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/outdoors/3768631-sup-paddler-eating-miles-lake-superior

Here is a brief excerpt from the article:

His entire circumnavigation will cover about 1,700 miles. On his 14-foot stand-up paddleboard (SUP), Munch carries three large waterproof duffels with food, camping gear and clothing. At St. Ignace Island, he was staying overnight in a cabin with a sauna, but most nights along Ontario's shore he plans to camp.

Check out the progress on the facebook site: "More. A SUPerior Adventure."

Here is the article via the twincities.com:

and an excerpt from the article:

He said he hatched the plan a year ago and has spent the past six months divining possible situations and combing every detail. He's mailing himself supply packages to places along the route. He's got a solar panel charger for his cellphone, GPS and marine radio (for Coast Guard contact in an emergency). He'll paddle close to shore and camp under the stars. On his way to Canada, civilization won't be too far away. He'll be able to pop into a restaurant if the mood strikes.

This space is well utilized with a comfortable cot and plenty of room for several pallets. It also has a nice battery array, inverter, and other electrical components so the driver can recharge electronics or watch television. The use of shelving also contributes to the organization and space of the entire sleeper and cargo area. I like the way insulation is used but the walls are left uncovered which helps to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle.

This partition board is incorporated into the e track to give the driver a separate sleeping space in this cargo van.

Pallet Deer Blind Pictures


Pallets are a great source and can be found for free in Brainerd, Minnesota and other cities by searching craigslist or asking businesses.
This ingenious bow hunter from Texas decided to make a low cost deer blind to put on a lease so his whole family could enjoy hunting in a comfortable, well built, and practically free blind. The builder put alot of sweat equity into the build, and it turned out really well.
The swivel office chair is a nice comfortable touch for this stand. I have learned over the years of hunting deer in Minnesota that most big bucks are shot by people who spend the whole day in the stand or blind, because you never know when the big Leroy twelve pointer is going to come trotting by.

My Daughter's Photos From Tonight

My daughter, Amrie has been taking some pictures of the lakes on her visit up here to Minnesota.  We went out for a boat ride tonight and she took some shots of the evening sky. We had a great day today...went to see the new Jurassic World movie in 3D and we both enjoyed the movie.  It was worth the extra money seeing it in the theater.

Amrie has been into swimming and other water sports since she was a child.  She is now getting older and spends time paddle boarding and kayaking when she comes up to Minnesota. She also spends serious amounts of time in the ocean down in Florida. Someday, I hope to have her same schedule in terms of following the seasons. Summer in Minnesota and winters down in Florida.

Here are a few of her photos of the clouds from tonight:

Expedite Truck Sleepers and Interior Pictures

Expedite Trucking is a fast growing segment of the Transportation industry.  Expediters often have longer layovers and wait times when compared to other professional drivers.   The photos below show some very comfortable and user friendly truck setups for expediters.

Expedite trucking is often referred to as the ambulance service of the freight industry.  Expediters specialize in time sensitive freight and corresponding deadlines.

Expedite Truck Sleepers
These images remind me of some high end camper and recreational vehicle interiors.  This would be a great option for drivers that demand the ultimate in on board comfort and appliances.

Jon Ronson's Book on Shame in Modern Society: "So You've Been Publicly Shamed" and Video

Do you remember the plagiarism speech from your English teacher?  I thought back to my days giving this same speech to my freshman Composition students when I began to peruse the writing of Jon Ronson's latest book.
I am currently reading Jon Ronson's book, “So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed" and have found it to be a fascinating, if not somewhat disturbing, read. Having been a high school and community college teacher for the past 10 years, I have seen a great deal of public shame, and not only of students.

The New York Times article concerning the book was a great introduction to the subject of shaming,  and I wanted to share a small excerpt:

bAPRIL 17, 2015

The Welsh journalist and author Jon Ronson joined Twitter on Dec. 10, 2008. He has since published more than 44,000 tweets — almost 20 each day. He has seen some things.

Ronson’s new book, “So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed,” digs into a strange phenomenon of the participatory ­Internet. From time to time, it seems as if every user of social media rises up as one to ­denounce, shame and remove an apparently deserving victim. The first few times Ronson witnessed this, he was intrigued — even exhilarated. “When we deployed shame, we were utilizing an immensely powerful tool,” he writes of his initial reaction: “The silenced were ­getting a voice. It was like the democratization of justice.” Or was it? His view turned gradually darker.

In the beginning of the book, Ronson looks at the consequences of deceit and plagiarism in the ever expanding world of journalists and online media. The book only progresses in interesting topics, and as I neared the completion of the book, I regretted not using this to teach research and argument for my Composition classes...classes concerning the importance and integrity associated with citing sources correctly when conducting research. The consequences of plagiarism in an academic setting were very real (expelled, name put in database, end of college career)and after reading Ronson's book, I am seeing the consequences and shame brought upon journalists that try to pass off other people's ideas as their own.  
The irony of it all is most of his subject matter is pertaining to the infinite audience in the world of social media, and I have become an avid blogger. I may need to go back and cite the New York Times information above, as I have a new found fear of the shame associated with plagiarism.
