I wedged this one in just as Ron DeSantis was running for cover as the CAT4 beast that is Ian came to visit. One blowhard to another. Just as it should be. What a week. I feel like the kid in the dodgeball game who ends up alone against a full team on the other side winging those pain inflicting red balls at his head. “Hey, can you kill this mouse, setup a satellite dish, teach an 87-year-old how to use Facetime, critique this PDF, write a quote, make this book, find this part, review these samples, drill this hole, and talk your mother off the ledge of running out of coffee.” And that before 10 AM. Thank God I’m so intelligent. (Unverified.)
Who is this week’s episode for? Anyone who says “Me and my kids are riding this thing out.” Then, when the reporter returns the next day the only thing left is a slab. THAT is my kind of adventurer. Who is our hero of the week? Our GOAT? Tune in and find out. This week we cover the departure of my drone, my experience with Starlink, Salsa Cycles coming through in a major way, my return to El Paso, and how much I miss Albania. In addition, we talk new laptops, horrible morning rituals, and the strange, fantastic world of letters, pens and mysterious correspondence. I bagged on some people in this podcast, some of whom are very deserving of my bagging, but I also state at the end that a lot of the folks punished the most by hurricanes are the ones already suffering more than anyone else. Economic means are a major factor in hurricane response.
