  1. Another privileged A Hole burning a hole in the OZone . Thanks Wally how was it looking down on trash planet?

    Why not be an advocate for eliminating plastic bags. Plastic straws, lids. Cut down on packaging of useless items shipped by Amazon.

    I would be more impressed with that.

    I look up to an 84 year old guy Sven Yrvind. Who right now at this writing is sailing the open Ocean in a tiny home built sailboat he can not even stand up in. 5.76 meter long and 1.04 meter wide (beam).

    He is advocating for smaller and less impact footprint.

    Wally you just stroked all the impressionable kids into wanting excess.
