La Isla Del Albolado
Not a very sexy day here at the Field Lab - no major 3 dimensional reality came to life...but the groundwork has been laid. Had to do quite a bit of staring at the tank outlets, trying to pre visualize the layout. Tricky part is the pull chain on/off valve that will be inside the insulated box. Think I got it figured out. One more trip to the hardware store and now I have 93% of the parts I need. By now it was afternoon so I pursued more sides for the insulated enclosure. Built the two ends and the north side of the box. The west end side is where all the plumbing magic is going to occur.....tomorrow?
Since no photo of the day from here, I present my pre-Field Lab. These are some montages of my first off the grid experiment on my former property back in upstate NY...I spent 2 incredible summers out there. I sure do miss all that green and the jungle effect that the area had in the summertime. My camp was called "La Isla Del Albolado" - Woodland Island. It even had its own mini lawn that I had to mow once a week.
