It's no secret that Rachel and I have moved around a lot, sometimes just briefly, but always with an eye open for a more permanent move. Almost ten times in the last couple years that I can think of off the top of my head — Toronto (Bathurst), Miramichi, Toronto (back at Bathurst), Tweed, Tortola, Antigua, Maui, Amsterdam, and now Toronto again — definitely loving it, and definitely appreciate all the people who've pushed me to travel over the past while.

Anyway, I was thinking about where I'd most want to live, and I think the answer is an airship. A little apartment hanging from a large airship that I could travel around the world in — I've been saying “boat” for years, but an airship is the ultimate sailboat. A couple satellite links and I'd still be online and everything, and more and more airports are gaining support for airships as they begin to be taken seriously again as a mode of transport. That said, I have no idea what an airship costs and I suspect they are extremely expensive.

I realize that it generates very little power in comparison to the nuclear plant out in Clarington or the Niagara hydroelectric generating stations, but I really like the wind-generating station that's been put up as a demo down at the CNE. I can see it out of my window (the photo below is off my balcony), and from it I always know what the wind conditions on the lake are like (and good for Rachel too because she can eyeball the wind conditions at the airport now that she's in flight school).

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
