Oh, I will have my big ass kayak. Although I need to buy or build a
sleek, fast single-person boat. I did 19 miles in two outings on Oahu
in my brother's old single-person kayak, and watched the locals zoom by
in their single-person outriggers. If I had one to cast, I'd be laying
up carbon fiber or something right now.

Hey, I want in!
Actually, I think my dream would be a Jon Stewart-inspired secular
humanism rationalist science jam session, with a required laugh every 2
minute2, on Sunday morning. Split into two groups. Each group writes
the presentation for the other for laughs and sharing cool ideas.
