Freeman

Freeman, friends! I’ve met a whole bunch of people on this journey, each of them unique in a special way. Freeman is no exception. We met on the shores of the Salton Sea, in a town called Bombay Beach. A few days later, sitting in a little studio near Joshua Tree National Park, he schooled me on pallet structures, living in India, teaching valuable software development skills to young people, having only one short career, and the joy of riding electric unicycles! Relax a bit, and spend some time with our new, sweet friend, Freeman.

Gerrit McGowan, folks; this guy has done some shit! An experienced white-water kayaker, a river guide, a conservationist, an educator, an entrepreneur, and more. Gerrit sat down with me to chat, less than 24hours before leaving for Germany to begin working on his PhD. We talked about his many ventures, adventures, ideas, start-ups, successes, personal growth, the concept of “Flow” states, and time spent on the river! Share and Enjoy!

Lyle McReynolds

Amy, Whiskey, Lyle, Sunshine, and Juma.

Are YOU on the Bus? According to George Walker (one of the Merry Pranksters), Lyle is! If we ever need a reminder of just how privileged we are to be on this journey, all we need to do is listen to a few minutes of this episode. Lyle is one of the kindest, most thoughtful and genuinely wise people we have had the pleasure of meeting, in an incredibly strong field of kind, thoughtful folks! We sat with him in his home, where we were fortunate enough to be invited guests for three days, in Moose, WY. Everything about the place is incredible, from the views to the cabinetry. We talked about life, work, love, hunting, hand-built boats, carpentry, ghosts, being a worthy descendant, and the pressures of running a pool hall and daycare.
