I have been playing with hydroponic systems for a little over a year now, I have learned the ins and outs of deep water cultivation, air movement, plant breath ability, sustainability practices in farming and a lot of other great life lessons. Today I embarked on an adventure into hydroponic romaine lettuce. I’m going to be growing these outdoor once they are large enough to handle the intensity that our sun produces, so for now I have equipped them under a greenhouse grow light. Nothing to powerful just enough to get the plants the light they need and not kill my power bill. Here’s a look at the start
A secret world of artist rage through the night. Some armed with one color some armed with a whole crayola box of pressurized paint, and I’m not talking the small box of crayons, the big one, the one if you had when you were in 2nd grade the other kids would be jealous of your crayon collection. Heighten the creativity, the rebelliousness, mix with a freedom of speech, artistic, adrenaline junkie and you get the modern day street artist. I ride my bike by the train yard daily and love seeing the art that passes through Salem.
As the poppies are starting to bloom, I’m spending my days working in a door shop.
The mild days of Oregon help me relax with some good disc golf down by the river.
Independence, Oregon is a truly beautiful little town located on the bank of the Willamette River. I moved out here 3 months ago to pursue a more mellow lifestyle then that of Salem, Oregon. I went from a town of 100k to 8k. While only a fifteen minute bus ride to Salem it keeps everything relatively close.
Hello to all whom cross paths with my little blog here. While the past few months, looking back on the blog, unto which I have not even posted on since last august, sometimes we just lose inspiration to post? Or just get caught up in life. Although this may be the case or the fact that sometimes I just have freaking bad writers block. Lately however the words have been flowing, an autobiography so to speak has a forthcoming in the distant years. While not exactly an autobiography as much as just a travel story, an adventure. I ride so to speak, the one that took me two years to accomplish, another book to come that has more to do with a guide to the pct than anything. Don’t worry not as boring as yogi’s pct guide book. This guide book you won’t want to put down. Trust me. Look for more to come…its all about the party!
So in closing I’d like to announce that my site will be getting a new look and will become more of a market place for hippie and one of a kind adventure goods, I have a few friends that are also going to be contributing to the project. The whole goal is adventure in everything. Cheers to the new direction and motivation. Since I can’t get out and adventure to much I figured I’d start selling things to promote my creativity and adventurous spirit…
Also the adventuring hasn’t stopped it has just been more sporadic, my current daily adventure takes place in the hustle and bustle of a hollow metal door shop, shipping receiving, and helping in any way I possibly can. Come September I will be hiking the high sierra route through the sierra nevada. I look forward to the new adventures that are going to be taking place. Stay tuned!
