Got back into gear today. While the next big project is still waiting to begin - the trick is to find all the other little things that need attention but keep getting put off. Mental Note: There should never be the excuse that there is nothing to do as there is so much yet to do here at the Field Lab. The big inspiration of the day was helping Ben for 2 hours this morning shuttling OSB from the ground to the rafters. He danced around up there like it was no big deal. After my assistance - he spent the rest of the day nailing it all down for good and doing some child proofing for the "house in the sky". As for those who have questioned Ben's decision to build up on "stilts", all I can say is the feeling you get from the landscape being 10 ft. up is amazing and well worth his design effort. Kind of like the first time as a kid you see the world from a tree house.
After lifting 20 sheets of OSB up to Ben's roof, I was too energized to just sit the rest of the day. Got my other 2 wind turbines back in business and moved my water tanks back into place. I tried just pushing them but I couldn't muster the same horse power as the winds that pushed them off their pads. Had a quick revelation and put the go kart to work for a change. I think that's called mixing business with pleasure. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e408qxAS3hU
