3 Years!

It's hard to believe I have been here for 3 years as of today....and still lovin the desert.  Seems like only yesterday that I got that first lumber order and started assembling the panels for my little hut.  I must say that I am still very pleased with this life choice.  Spent most of the day cleaning and priming the steel flats for the final section of roofing.  Did my annual trek to the Starlight this evening for a celebratory margarita.....or two.  And so it goes...  59,75,39,0,B

John you are a unique West Texas treasure, blazing a trail across the little traveled desert with 21st century flair, lighting the way for others to follow, enjoy your Margarita or two!

I envy you John. It takes a lotta gumption to follow the life you've chosen. I wish I had more of what you have inside. I'd love to be where you are.

John - got a question for you. Has Benita left any 'love marks' on your truck or on other structures at the Field Lab? Just wondering if she doesn't realize how long those horns are?

In your time in the desert you have sure gotten alot done. My favorite is still Benita drinking outa the plexiglass bowl video..still makes me laugh.
