On the road, off the grid!

Magnetofunky: Walkabout is a laid back (and often explicit - you bet your ass) personal journal of extremely eclectic music and progressive politics, with a focus on mobile energy independence and creative West Coast wanderlust.

This new show departs from the previous podzine in that I'm preparing to leave the safe confines of a brick and mortar SRO to discover California outside of Los Angeles and San Francisco, attempting to expand my definition of personal freedom on a more or less permanent rent-free bike tour up and down the West Coast...

The mobile power plant I created is a working 100W model Battery Operated Self-Charging System, a modification of a device patented by Carlos F. Benitez 100 years ago. A 1000W system is also possible...

The Open Mic Stage accepts submissions of almost any genre from great bands and artists the world over, whether big name or indie, as long as I like the beat and flow.

Poop Tubes And Plastic Jars

Fixing the travel toilet issue for now; moving the battery box along...

The actual poop tube jars didn't match the store ad, not the same dimensions, but it does have a leak proof lid, and it was under $5, so I got the pair anyway...    Mockup of toggle switch placement for the battery box negative terminals...
