Summary

On the heels of a breakup, author Nathan Pettijohn rents an RV and takes off on the road with his dog to explore the Pacific Northwest for the month of October. Along their journey, Pettijohn and his dog Raphael, or "Hafa," meet with locals in small towns and stay at sites ranging from national parks, trailer parks, and campgrounds, to parking lots and open spaces. While going to a number of iconic bucket-list road trip stops, Pettijohn shares his views on everything from dog training to dating apps, in a modern exploration of life on the road today in America for adventurers, vagabonds, and dog lovers.

    What You Need to Know Before You...

    Welcome to a city of eccentricity, lauded throughout world history and throbbing with the iconic and the alternative. Black taxis, red buses, famous clocks, flashing skyscrapers, wine bars tucked down labyrinthine alleys...and that's all within an hour of landing in this chaotic capital. London is mad. From the throngs that gather on tiny Trafalgar Square to the disused toilet cubicles turned into coffee joints, there's something peculiar and bizarre at every turn. Even the breakfasts don't look real; is it really possible to start your day with six different fried foods? Mugs of tea with milk, pints of “real ale,” opulent shopping experiences, grubby atmospheric basements, glorious architectural relics, or graffiti ridden streets...welcome to London and welcome to an incomparable travel experience.But which side of London are you going to see? Perhaps the funky neighborhoods of the East, bursting with vibrant color and pop-up markets. Maybe the elegant townhouses of the West, standing proud in all their Victorian splendor. Of course, few want to miss out on the bright and famous; Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street theater, Westminster flickering over the River Thames... London's greatest appeal is its diversity. In the space of just two Underground stops you will travel to another borough, a disparate entity in the overarching sphere that calls itself London. Most Londoners never even venture into the center, stoically sticking to the sights of their own local borough. Likewise, most tourists never venture out of Underground Zone 1, missing out on the rich tapestry of culture and experiences that await in the outlying boroughs.

  • Outsourcing for Your Business - Everything You Need to Know About Successful Outsourcing - cover

    Outsourcing for Your Business -...

    Outsourcing is the movement of workload to another source which can provide assistance in that particular area for an agreed price either as a onetime service or as an ongoing complementing service. In doing so, the principal company can effectively save time, get staff to be more committed and speedier work results. The essence of outsourcing is simply engaging the services of an individual or organization outside your full time staff to handle certain aspects of your business plan. These aspects may be public relations, marketing, clerical and administrative functions, or IT management. In fact, with today's virtual environment, there is really no part of the business that could not be outsourced effectively. Of course, the big question is whether or not there are any benefits to outsourcing, especially for persons who are building their business on the Internet. 
    There are several good reasons to outsource certain functions. Often times, an Internet business is set up with a shoestring budget and one person doing all the work. As the business grows, it is easy to get caught up in dealing with general office functions, such as answering emails, handling correspondence and maintaining client lists. By outsourcing your clerical support needs, you can spend more time focusing on the expansion of your business, not the day-to-day details of running it. Second, promoting your online presence is a full time job all by itself. You can hardly manage that and still be involved in making the big decisions that impact the overall operations of your company. 
    Using outside agents to promote your presence and to stimulate sales makes it possible for you to do what owners need to do, which is grow the companies' roster of goods and services. Last, outsourcing allows you not to get bogged down with employee taxes, withholding and providing a benefit package.

    'Barefoot navigation: 5,000 years in the making.' 
      
    Barefoot Navigator introducesus to a unique take on navigation – using the skills of the ancients and technology-free techniques, we learn how to navigate using the sun, sea, wind and stars, and even the flight patterns of ocean birds.  
      
    The first part of this absorbing book recounts a colourful history of seafarers and their navigation techniques. How did the Polynesians manage to populate an area of ocean larger than North America simply by analysing clouds,currents and wind direction? How did the Vikings routinely travel on the notorious stretches of water between Iceland, Greenland and Scandinavia? The second part shows how to use these ancient techniques to supplement today's navigational hardware, especially in survival situations. 
      
    Fascinating history, useful advice, enjoyable writing, and different to every other navigation reference out there, this second edition has been beautifully packaged in a hardback format, with new illustrations and thoroughly revised text.

    The Lure of Faraway Places -...

    The Lure of Faraway Places is the publication canoeist Herb Pohl (1930-2006) did not live to see published. But Pohl's words and images provide a unique portrait of Canada by one who was happiest when travelling our northern waterways alone. Austrian-born Herb Pohl died at the mouth of the Michipcoten River on July 17, 2006. He is remembered as "Canada's most remarkable solo traveller."  
    While mourning their loss, Herb Pohl's friends found, to their surprise and delight, a manuscript of wilderness writings on his desk in his lakeside apartment in Burlington, Ontario. He had hoped one day to publish his work as a book. With help and commentary from best-selling canoe author and editor James Raffan, Natural Heritage is proud to present that book, Herb's book, The Lure of Faraway Places. "There's nothing like it in canoeing literature," says Raffan. "It's part journal, part memoir, part wilderness philosophy and part tips and tricks of the most pragmatic kind written about parts of the country most of us will never see by the most committed and ambitious solo canoeist in Canadian history."
