Lull in the action at the Field Lab so let's talk about luxury steam yachts. Early this year I met a woman at the GrubShack that spends her winters out here in the desert...Chris Cobb. She is a real sweetheart and one of Benita's biggest fans. She almost cried when she met Benita in person. After several months, I finally met her mystery husband, Steve. They both disappeared for the summer to get back to their jobs - cruise director and steamship captain. Steve was just back out here last week, renting a backhoe to prep for the foundation on their desert home. Only in Terlingua can you meet someone who can operate heavy earth moving equipment and is an expert seaman in charge of restoring a vintage yacht. http://www.flickr.com/photos/greatatlantic/sets/72157600469317708/ hmmmm....wonder if I can get him to relocate it onto Field Lab Lake. 59,75,38,0,W
