Photography: Nepal Wares

I took this picture back in April of 2015 when I was in Nepal on a unicycle tour through the Annapurna mountain range.  Vendors with portable shops would setup their items to sell alongside the main pathway in the little villages. The night before it had snowed a ton, and we had to turn around and head back down the pass instead of completing the entire circuit. I remember the morning in great detail as it was my birthday. This picture was taken on the way back down to lower elevation.  I hope to go back one day to finish the... [read more]


Adventures of Corbin: Japan, Starring Lexi

Late last year, Lexi told me that she wanted to go to Japan. I’ve always wanted to go to Japan and I figured this would be an awesome opportunity for me to go check out the country. I imagined I would eventually go with a my friends Nathan and Grace, who have a strong connection to the country and would love to do some type of cycling adventure (particularly, uni!). But that hasn’t panned out, and this was a great time to go. Lexi had images of skiing in super light powder in Hokkaido, and that was her primary goal.... [read more]


Plug Bug: Crash update.

Back in October 2016 my electric VW bug was rear ended: http://www.corbinstreehouse.com/blog/2016/10/plug-bug-the-bug-is-squished-i-was-rear-ended/ I was super sad, and I’ve had to deal with the insurance side of things. In the end, the bug has been declared “totaled”, but I was able to buy it back for a small amount of money. I’m hoping to fix it up and get it running again – but the rain in California needs to let up before I can do any work.


Chesapeake 16LT Kayak: It hits the water

In October 2016 I got a wooden kayak kit. In February 2017 it finally hit the water! It took a little longer than I expected, but I’m happy with the result! Here I am taking it in the water for the first time. I worked from home this day and quickly left for the Santa Cruz harbor as soon as I was done. It was a dark and stormy day, but I still wanted to try paddling in it. Lexi gave me a hand getting it in the water, and I took off. The kayak handles awesome. This is the... [read more]


Chesapeake 16LT Kayak: Part 14 – Finished.

Happy days are here! Actually, most all my days are happy days, but the kayak is done! I installed the seat and hatch straps. The seat is just some foam glued in, and in the picture below you can see a brick holding it down while it dries:   Later I added some elastic tie downs; I left things a little long so I can later tweak it a bit. The next problem I had was where to keep it. I fabricated some quick brackets out of old 2x4s and screwed them to my wall. I then topped it with... [read more]
