Several years ago Sarah and I talked some friends into helping us build a $15,000 bungalow on a remote Pacific island. This was not a good idea. We found out that oceanfront land that costs $100 isn't necessarily underpriced and friends who are attracted to work-for-food schemes aren't necessarily endowed with what you might call "skills." Anyway, here is a piece about it I wrote for National Geographic Adventure.
For the record, the last line, "Sometimes spreading the dream around is the best way to make it happen." was theirs, not mine. Diseases spread, not dreams.
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ADVENTURE
After John McCain tapped Sarah Palin to be his running mate, I did a little piece about Wasilla, Alaska for Slate.com. Other than the fact that I had to drive back to take a photograph of the "Welcome to Wasilla" sign it was a pleasure. You can listen and see it here.
