The first time I met Ned I was dressed like a girl scout and he had a vest on. When we shook hands & said our names we both said “Oh, so you’re ________!”… Then from that point on we entered each others lives at the most random of times- sharing drinks, stories, and laughter at each stop. We’ve passed like ships in the night this last year… but I always know that his ship is at sea waiting for the next deck drink as I pass in the light.
BUY HIS BOOKS, NED IS A GOOD DUDE.
I have written two books, and you can order than now. They’re printed in Moleskine type journals and look amazing; also, handmade in Brooklyn. Very big thanks to Amanda White and everyone at 8-Bit for making this happen. Please reblog and spread the word!
Congratulations, Ned! I’ve never met Ned, but we’ve communicated through an email program and it went well every time. I have met Delbert Shoopman and he is awesome. It’s nice to know that these guys meet up from time to time. You have to get out there and socialize every so often or else you forget how. You forget proper greetings and you just run up to complete strangers and say, “Hey! Look at this map!” And they think you mean treasure map, but it’s just a map of Nevada that you picked up at a rest station.
