almost nuthin...


High winds started last night at about midnight....let up after an hour then persisted throughout the day. Benita stayed on the south side and I stayed inside. Worked on the plan for the new solar oven which will be based on the design from these folks. http://www.omick.net/solar_ovens/current_solar_oven.htm

Ryan saved the day from being a total washout by showing up late this afternoon with the machine he rented for a week....and cut me an access road into my canyon for the future mega-dam. 46,66,41,0

Really like the solar oven design. The whole website is really cool. Very, very minimalist, but intriguing.

The Lab is really growing by leaps & bounds!
Congratulations!

By looking at the excavation going on with your new access road I get the impression that your land contains all the dig-able soil in Terlingua. Usually all I see in your area is rocks and gravel.

The guy with the tractor is a really nice friend to have. Can't wait to see the mega dam. A swimming hole?

Awesome design with the oven. Great having a mate with access to a tractor.

I don't remember seeing images of that part of your land with the gully.

You are very lucky to have a friend such as Ryan. From what I have read about him in several blogs he is an intelligent and hard working young man.

Can hardly wait to see your mega dam. Is this located in the new acreage you acquired?

Awesome solar oven from Omick. Can't wait to see what your take on it will be like.

Ambitious plans for the new dam. Hope it doesn't silt up as quickly as the last one.
