Hey there!

Instead of the Friday Update I'm doing a Thursday Update because of something I'm incredibly excited about. Yes, I'm just as excited as those kids in the picture above. :)

Today marks the first release in a series of Ridiculously Extraordinary Black Books.

RE Black Books are Special Ops guides on unique topics.

Classified information for Ridiculously Extraordinary People.

No unnecessary photos.

No unnecessary designs.

No bullshit.

#001 in the series is called:

"How To Travel Anywhere In The World, Live With Locals, and Enjoy Outstanding Experiences By CouchSurfing"

You could also call it The Unofficial Guide To CouchSurfing.

Check it out completely free (you don't even have to submit your e-mail address) here:


About a week ago, I shouted out on Twitter asking for reviews of the draft.

Thanks to everybody who helped me out with fixes and ideas: - Christopher McDade (sorry, I don't have your Twitter or Web site, let me know if you have either) - Denis Ambrose (@deambrosejr)

I appreciate all the feedback, but I'd like to especially thank Nicky (@tumbledesign) from TumbleDesign.com for providing kick ass detailed feedback. He went out of his way to make sure this Black Book is top notch.

Note: I'm in Franz Joseph, New Zealand with limited Internet access today. Could you do me a favor and share the download page to Black Book #001 on Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon (http://su.pr/1SbnYD), and via e-mail to your friends?

Thank you!
