As you know, I like to travel light.  Probably lighter than the average person.  I carry my trusty Serbag with a few scraps of clothes squished up into compression bags, very handy for saving space btw, a few personal documents, my MacAir of course, and little else.  Things like cosmetics, towel, and other non necessities I […]

Hoping I Can Make It…

As August winds down I am finally getting serious about what my next adventure will entail.  I’ve begun looking in earnest at ads for places to live in Hawaii as well as possible boat options in Florida.  If nothing changes with the current progress of my loved one’s recovery, anytime after Labor Day I can […]

The Journey Continues...

Some of you may remember Julia from the old blog, Journey To Minimalism.  When Julia and I first made contact by way of some comments on the Fritter she was stuck in a go nowhere job, saddled with a mortgage, and generally was unhappy.  She found the way to true salvation through minimalism, unsaddled herself […]

It’s been 2 weeks since the fall from grace but the good news is, patient zero is coming along very well.  Physical therapy has been the order of the day.  The hip is hurting but there is actual walking (with a walker), getting up and down, climbing steps, and other exercises.  Coming home later this […]

I never thought, in all my fantasies about travel and island living, I would be sitting here trying to decide if I want to live in Hawaii or Key West, yet here I am.  Both islands have good and bad to them and trying to figger out which would be the more better way to […]

Today I got the word.  I am officially homeless again.  Just another urban outdoorsman with no purpose in life.  Doomed to wander the planet aimlessly.  No place to lay my weary bones, no shelter from the rain and cold.  Destined to die alone in a wooded clearing which reeks of cat pee. The landlady in […]

I put up a small Amazon Store a few months ago to pick up a few extra pennies on the side.  Nothing special, just links to some stuff relevant to the Fritter and on a separate page so it wouldn’t interfere with the content of the site.  Well, Amazon has decided the store front idea […]

So, I’ve been back in my most unfavorite place on the planet for a few days now.  The jet lag from the trip hit me pretty hard.  My sleep patterns are all screwed up.  In fact I am writing this post at 2:00am on Sunday morning as I can’t get back to sleep.  My digestive […]

Loooong Trip...

Well, I made it, none the worse for wear.  Maui to Seattle to Detroit to Central Pa., 5000 miles, and 6 time zones.  To say I am tired would be an understatement.  But, as trips went, even one this long, everything went okay. I didn’t get dragged off any planes.  No fights broke out amongst […]

I finally got some clarity going forward on how long I can stay at the condo here in Kihei and can now make some sort of evil plans for the summer.  The upside is I will most likely be staying here through the month of May which is fine by me.  The more longer, the […]

6 Years...

Wow. Another year and the Fritter is still going strong.  Amazing.  When I started this little voyage I had no idea where it would lead and if it would even last, yet here we are, still sailing along, at least digitally if not on the water. It has been fun though, and never seeming to […]

In my never ending quest to do more with less, I bring you the story of the iPhone and the changes I have made regarding said device. I’ve been a fan of the iPhone since it first came out and it has become a very important piece of equipment for my day to day existence.  I […]

I’ve decided to run a little sale for the holidays.  Since I can’t sell my charming wit and devastating good looks, (at least not without violating some stupid court order), I’m having a sale on the next best thing, my wonderful collection of ebooks.  From now until the end of the year, you can get […]

Enough with all the election bullshit.  Time to move on to more important matters. I’ve begun the process of making Hawaii my permanent residence.  It’s going to take a few more months to complete, mainly due to logistics and tax purposes, but by the spring, if all goes right, and the new government does not […]

Are You Not Entertained?...

My goodness.  Quite a spectacle wasn’t it?  Lots of theatrics, drama, comic relief, and in the end, everybody lost, except of course for the owners of this country who are laughing at us whilst sitting on their luxury yacht sipping champagne, eating the meat of some endangered species, and grabbing women’s genitals. Let me preface […]

The First Thing You're Gonna Say Is...

I’ve dreamt of doing a lot of things over the course of my life.  Visiting faraway lands, having adventures, doing exciting things, and generally living a real life. And surprisingly, I’ve managed to actually make more than a few dreams come true. I moved to Florida, learned to scuba dive, rode a Harley across the […]

The Loooong Winter Ahead...

With the official end of summer in the rearview mirror, because anywhere north of Florida, summer ends at Labor Day, it means the start of 9 months of cold, dreary, depressing, lifeless, meaningless, drudgery.  Everybody dresses down in dark heavy clothing.  The short days are spent cleaning up leaves, shoveling snow, or scraping ice.  Not […]

A Brief Interlude...

It’s the last week of summer, such as it is in these crappy mountains, and with the holiday weekend coming up, I’m taking a short sabbatical from writing.  I apologize for the lack of decent posts over the past few months but it’s not exactly inspirational for the writing spirit around here.  I’ll probably post […]

You’ve read the book.  But did you ever wonder what the Captain looks like?  Well, here is his standard wardrobe in all it’s glory: Wait!  What do you mean, you haven’t read the book????  What the hell is the matter with you?  It has everything you could want in a single download…drama, comedy, romance, intrigue, […]
