Real Writing with Real Paper and Real Ink

So the new year is here and my resolution to write 52 letters this year is off to a great start.  I sent off three so far, one to Hendrik in Finland (Hiking in Finland), one to my sister in Virginia and one to my boss thanking him for my bonus.  But now I need your help.  The United States Postal Service is insisting I put an address on each envelope, as if a stamp were not enough.

If you’d like to receive a hand written letter the way it was done ‘back in the day’, please send me your address via velohobo@gmail.com .  It would be helpful to put something like ‘send me a letter’ in the title.  You’d not believe the amount of email The Velo Hobo gets; mostly trying to sell me Viagra and hair plugs (who have they been talking to?).

Thanks, Jack

    Writing letters is a great hobby.
    I hope you enjoy it and receive many letters in return.
    I like your pen.
    Is it a Lamy?
    Paz 🙂

      Thanks Chandra, yes it’s the Lamy Safari. I’m new to fountain pens. It’s a pleasure to write with.

    Nice Lamy – if you get into it, the nibs on the Safaris can be easily swapped, and they range from fine up to cursive italics (about $10-15 for a nib) turns it into a whole new writing experience and look! I hope you enjoy pens as well as biking! Cheers!

      Thanks Tom,
      I’m really enjoying how well the pen flows on paper. I’m still using the cartridge the pen came with. I need to get a converter so I can try different inks. (I also need to greatly improve my penmanship). I’m looking forward to getting my hands on different pens as well. I hope this doesn’t turn into a new addiction, although pens are cheaper than bikes…well most are.

    Roofing is a pity to school bus stay out of its many outside contracts.
    If I decide to hire professional Los Angeles roofing
    contractors that have unresolved school bus client complaints must be sold to the
    Future became a challenging experience.

    “Competition was fierce, and the judging was difficult for the panel of local business leaders who selected the seven winners,” Pigott revealed.

    These investigations into the body and mind will deepen as our meditation becomes an ongoing, continuous process all day long.
    That means that although there is another world,
    it will be so entirely different that we cannot ever speak of it.
