A very long day of only contemplating the upcoming project. Having a bit of trouble locating a supplier of corrugated metal roofing for a curved roof. Need to settle that issue before I decide on the radius of the trusses I will be building from scratch. Did manage working another loaf of solar bread into the busy schedule today. Took a break from all that thinking to go for a drive - rationalized it would be a good idea to at least hunt down some perfect aggregate for the concrete footings. Not really looking forward to getting my dirt (I need about 8 cubic yards) but it has to be done so will concentrate tonight on trying to trick myself into thinking it will be a blast. Found that someone had recently graded a section of road that had washed out years ago. Now I have a shortcut to Terlingua Creek that I can drive my truck through. That shaves about 6 miles off the old route. Saw some longhorns in the high brush by the creek but didn't recognize any friends.
