1. Three Mules - Local Legendz

    from www.KORDUROY.tv / Added

    It might be hard to imagine a time when people relied on mules to transport themselves and their goods across great distances. It hard to ignore that cars and mass transit have replaced the need for mules, but John C. Sears has had at least one mule at a time for the last 30 years. He currently travels by foot with two mules up and down California, camping in public parks and along interstate trails. We caught up with him in San Diego, where he had returned after being sited in the Torrey Pines State Reserve for illegal camping in 2012. He was fined $485 and with the help of an attorney working pro-bono, Mr. Sears beat the charges and his journey to refocus the energy of this "megatropolis" into a better, more balanced community was able to continue. His travels serve as a reminder to take only what we need, and always try to work in harmony with the natural world. You can read more about John C. Sears and his mules at 3mules.com.

        We all have a vague sense that humans have a negative impact on the environment, but many of us push the thought to the backs of our minds and continue on with our days. When Evan Marks made that realization, he decided it was time to do something about it. Once he started getting involved in things like Surfrider Foundation, he learned that agriculture is a leading cause of pollution in the ocean and that's when he got into sustainable agriculture. In this video, he takes us on a tour of The Ecology Center, his farm and resource "hut" in Orange County. He shows us that amazing things can happen when you "plant a seed of good intention," and for that, he's a Local Legend. After you watch the video, head on over to http://www.theecologycenter.org to learn more about what they do and get involved in some of their upcoming events.

          For some people, age really is nothing but a number. Meet Tom Thayer. He was a lifeguard in San Diego for 35 years...until he was 60. An avid bodysurfer throughout, he's amassed decades of knowledge about the sport. To top it off, he's a passionate gardener who uses kelp to fertilize his fruit trees (watch the video to learn how). Legendary, to say the least.

          • How To Start A Campfire - D-I-Why Not?

            01:47

            from www.KORDUROY.tv / Added

            From staying warm, cooking food or even just to hang out and enjoy company, building a campfire is an essential part of any outdoor adventure. No need to be fumbling into the darkness trying to get one going anymore because in this episode of D-I-Why Not? in collaboration with Leatherman (http://www.leatherman.com), we share some simple tips into building your own fire...with only one match. Steps: 1. Check with local authorities on open-air burning restrictions and follow local burning regulations. Keep up-to-date on fire bans in the area. Get permits where needed. 2. Build campfires in fire pits provided or on bare rock or sand, if no fire pit is provided. Maintain a good amount of clearance around your fire (6-10 feet minimum). Contain fire by making a circle of rocks. 3. Gather your wood. Be sure to collect: tinder, kindling and fuel. Make sure it is dry. 4. Create a teepee, starting with the tinder, then adding kindling and fuel on top. 5. Light the tinder with your match. Blow on the fire with long sustained breaths at the base of the fire to get it going. 6. Never leave your campfire unattended and always put your extra wood upwind. 7. Allow all the wood to burn to ash, if possible. To extinguish, pour water over the fire until the hissing stops. If you don't have water, use sand/dirt and mix it in with the ambers. Don't bury the fire, the ambers will continue to burn underneath. 8. And as always, pack it in and pack it out. Don't leave anything behind. Make Smokey Bear proud! Be smart, play by the rules and stay safe. Host Idle Bus Theory http://www.idletheorybus.com/ Camera Rachal Goldfarb Edit James Campbell Music "A Dream I Didn't Have" Father Sleep ©2013 Korduroy.tv

              Jay Nelson is basically unstoppable. He doesn't let chained fences or conventional design methods get in his way and he makes art that consistently surprises us. He says art is the first thing he was really good at, and working with his hands was always something he wanted to do. Nelson started shaping boards in high school and then transitioned to shaping camper vehicles, tree houses and other artistic but useful pieces of beauty. In this first episode of our newest series, Local Legendz, Jay shows sketches of designs, walks us through his neighborhood (the Sunset in San Francisco) and tells us a bit about the friends who inspire him along the way. For more of Jay's work, visit http://jaynelsonart.com and follow him on Instagram @jay.
