Issue 190


Gang, I think we have a real problem... it seems many of our TDT community don't drink liquids...ever! How do you have the energy to read TDT?! People, to stay healthy, you must drink at least eight glasses of water each day, accompanied by several glasses of wine, of course.

At age eight, she received a hand-me-down surfboard, already battered by her brother Luke. “I left all his stickers on,” Marks recalls. “I felt so cool.” Now headed to the Olympics in Tokyo next year, the years in between have been a blur.

President-Elect, Joe Biden, Environmental Saviour

Sorry non-political TDT folks, but it's hard not to address the changes coming to "outdoor" protection policies in the U.S. It appears that the Biden administration aims to be the polar opposite of the Trump administration on most issues, and especially the environment. For my Canadian TDTers, see "Canada's federal ministers see Joe Biden as ally against climate change". (6 min Read)
