New improvements to the big solar oven are working well - up to 275 degrees without the reflectors. Gonna shoot for 10 loaves of bread tomorrow but the rest of the project is on hold. Good news is, I got a lead on a great deal for a trailer -to mount the whole rig on from my former neighbor and good buddy Charlie O.
Light'o'day project this morning....I personalized Benita's water bowl. I doubt that she was able to fathom the significance but it made me feel good as I have been meaning to do this for over a year. Besides....I needed something to update her facebook fanpage. Apparently....some big goons can't read. 88,102,55,0,W Yesterday was 72,96,45,0,B

Nice relatively calm day so I could plug away at the new solar oven. Primed and caulked
Enough of me talking about me.....here are 2 of my good blogger friends talking about me. http://theoperationofthemachine.blogspot.com/2010/04/field-lab.html and http://www.ottoblotto.blogspot.com/

Ran into Dizzy Dick from yesterdays comments at the GrubShack this morning. He and his wife Ruth were on their way out of the Big Bend. I insisted that they come out for the tour before they left the area. Had a great time showing them around and Ruth is now my official Texas mother to worry about me out here in the desert.

Made it home about a half hour before the tour arrived. Had a great time chatting up my new friends Dennis and Debbie - beards are always welcome. They even brought a bag of range feed for Benita! Had a quick tour then they headed out.

Did some road repair and finally made it out for some supplies down south....just in case it rains again before the next Alpine run. My friends David, Susan, and Zuki came out to spend some time on their land so I went to visit them for awhile - and ended up with a gallon of rum they brought for me. Gave the hut a thorough scrub down then spent the rest of the day drying my wings.
