After reading about this perfectly idyllic day at Point Reyes (one of my favorite places in the whole world), I never again want to read any whining from you about the supposed hardships of "working for The Man" (one of your previous posts; I forget which) ...

You see, I write this while sitting on my painfully flacid butt at a computer, in an eleven-story East Coast office building, while the sun shines unseasonably bright outside. Granted, I did get to take a hike on the Appalachian Trail this past weekend ... but you get the point: I'm not suffering from "gaper envy" so much as JOB ENVY. Curse you, Lombard of the Intertidal, for rubbing your good fortune in my miserable, beady-eyed little "Cubicle Slave" face!

p.s. have you finally recovered from the contaminated shark "ceviche"? Ha! Payback, sucker!

Finesmell, thank you for reminding me how lucky I am. How about sending me a drawing depicting the horrors of your mind numbing day job? Ill post it. What say? I think then MFN viewership could benefit by a few finesmell pix.



Unfortunately, it's already been done: that parody of the evolutionary progress of hominids, ending with the hunched-over guy at a computer. Then there's also R. Crumb's decal self-portrait in which he attempts suicide by flushing himself down the toilet (the guy's almost skinny enough to make it down the tubes - my gut would almost certainly get clogged!).

Are we not men? We are DEVO! Sorry - but the reference does hit the nail on the proverbial head, methinks.

Your readership will just have to purchase the next print version of MFN to see my drawings, at least for now ... we'll see. Speaking of the grind, I hafta get back at it, mate.

I just googled 'tule canoe'. So they're constructed out of bound-together tule reeds, which are buoyant and tough? Sounds like you could end up with something not unlike a sit-on-top kayak.

Maybe straps around the reed bundles would provide good attachment points for fishfinders, etc. You could attach a plank across the boat, attached to straps on each side, for things you want strongly attached, like rod holders. That would be great, a tule canoe decked out for modern fishing convenience. All fishfinder beeping, rods sticking out, cup holder with a Sierra Nevada. Hell yeah.
