TEXT Name:

	With our boat, we have circumnavigated the Pacific Ocean.
		- We started in Western Canada, sailed to Mexico,
		- then across all the South Pacific Islands to NZ, then up to Fiji, Marshall Islands,
		- Japan, and nearly every island inbetween.
	- We sailed to places with little to no internet connection, where water is scarce,
		and have sailed though parts of the ocean with no land or people around for days,
			relying entirely on solar power to cook, to work... to live.
	- On a boat, at sea on a passage between continents, the world ends at the rails
		- In that situation, a boat is an island.
	- We see Pino as a sort of vivarium
		- a small environment that we can shape, a canvas
		- the perfect place to conduct experiments.
	- Our first realization is that there is very little exploration in decentralized solutions to basic problems
		- Decentralized water treatment, waste management, food conservation, etc is rapidly being forgotten
	- Being on boat, and not relying on a grid means having to solve these very same problems.
		- an ideal vessel would be a closed system, in which resources are mostly re-used, and fed back into the system.
			- for instance, ashes from burnt wood of a woodstove, can be used as cover in a dry toilet.
		- This planet is a self-enclosed system as well,
			- but because of its huge mass, energy conversion systems, we think of it as being unlimited in its resources
		- A sailboat can be nearly self-sufficient, and if well-prepared, doesn't have to go back and resupply often.
			- perfect platform or stage to develop and integrate techniques of independent survival while living in harmony
			and in touch with nature.

TEXT Fermentation is diplomacy and canning is a massacre.
HEAD Fermentation is diplomacy`canning is a massacre.

		- *some kind of intro about doing things slow = more reward*
		- Slow cooking
		- Ex: Lacto-fermentation/canning
			- It's a waste of energy/quality when food is cooked once for canning, and then again before eating.
			- Lactofermentation is just vegetables in brine, slow-cooked(made digestible) by time and bacteria.
			- It can take up to 4 weeks to be ready.
			- Time is an asset, it gives bacteria the time to make the nutrients available to you, it works while you wait.
			- With this type of fermentation, the vegetables are still alive and gain more flavor with time.
			- While canning is a process that preserves good as well, after canning there is no waiting period to eat it... but there is a cost to time.
			- Canning uses more resources, such as heat, while effectively killing all bacteria.
			- Preserving food with lacto-fermentation is like building a small community, an invisible work force.
			- With fermentation you invite the microbes you want and don’t let in the ones you don’t.
			- A note to say that canning isn't that bad, it'll always be preferable to waste.
	Living aboard Pino, and having power constraints
		forced us to look at alternatives
		Learned there are benefits to waiting..
			Ex: waiting for 3 weeks for lactic acid bacteria to slow-cook food
			long time to wait
			but lots of benefits
			Food preserved this way is still alive
			Is super flavorful/full of nutrients
			Uses no heat, little effort.
			Requires only salt/time
	Time is an incredible asset,
		With something like lacto-fermentation
			Gives a chance for bacteria to get to work
			A lot of food isnt easily digested by the human body in their raw state
			Bacteria labor day/night to make the nutrients available to you
	With canning...
		Process that preserves food too 
		No waiting period to eat it... 
		but there is a cost to this:
			Waste of energy/quality when food is cooked once for canning, 
			and then again before eating.
			Preserving like this uses more heat, while effectively killing all bacteria.
	Preserving food fermentation is like building a small community
			You invite the microbes you want and don’t let in the ones you don’t.
