Junk

Back when I started this blog, I was following the “Junk” raft across the Pacific Ocean. They have finally put this video together of their trip: In the Spring of 2008 three marine scientist built a raft from 15,000 plastic bottles, 30 sailboat masts, and a Cessina 310 aircraft fuselage. We launched on June 1, […]

Real “Junk” Getting Ready to Set Sail for Hawaii

When I started my blog, I was following the “Junk” craft made of plastic bottles. They successfully made the voyage. A new “Junk” is about to make a voyage.  This time though, it’s a real one: A Chinese junk, as small as a yacht and as brightly painted as a child’s toy, is in San […]

“Junk” 7 Days Away from Landing

The Junk reported yesterday that it is only 8 days from arriving in Hawaii. If I was still living on Oahu, I’d be there to greet them with a lei. I’ve been enjoying their trip across the Pacific and I will probably be taking the link down once a successful voyage has been accomplished.

The aim of this extraordinary venture is simple: to focus attention on one of the world’s strangest and most unpleasant […]

Cheating Death?

Big Island blogger Larry O’Brien suggested just a week ago that I contact an Ultra Light Pilot named Tedd Hecklin to try and see about getting a “Blog Junket” tour of the Big Island with Tedd’s Flying Adventure. On Thursday, April 15, 2010 at 5:08 PM I sent Ted an email about doing an Ultra […]

More on the Taiping

In October I blogged about a real JUNK that was about to make it’s way across the Pacific Ocean: “When I started my blog, I was following the “Junk” craft made of plastic bottles. They successfully made the voyage. A new “Junk” is about to make a voyage.  This time though, it’s a real one…” […]

Plastic in Your Sushi?

Well as the Junk get’s closer and closer to landing on Oahu, the boys were about to eat a fish they caught.  I’ll let you all see the results: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dv_p-HGLnxs&color1=11645361&color2=13619151&hl=en&fs=1]
