Madagascar Unicycling Pictures

We took a pirogue (a dugout canoe) from Isle aux Nattes (a tiny island, not even shown on google maps) to Isle Sainte-Marie, a larger island off the east coast of Madagascar.

Metalworking: cufflinks

One of my first metalworking projects was making cufflinks for my wedding. They are aluminum and I turned them on the lathe, and used the mill for some drilling and flattening (by eye). The back piece screws on and off.

Zebu Cart

The first month was spent in East Africa, unicycling about 550km from Nairobi, Kenya to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. The tour was organized through a kiwi group called Escape Adventures.

I also took a lot of notes on the adventure; mainly so I can remember what was happening. The second month was spent... [read more]
