a rock and a hard place...
Unscheduled Alpine run this morning...seems the last bag of range feed I had was not Benita's choice. (A bag I purchased two weeks ago was torn and all taped up - filled with another brand). Made good use of the trip and picked up parts for a series of solar ovens I am building to sell locally. Before hitting the road, I placed my order for more Benita mugs - as soon as they arrive I will put a purchase link on the blog. Just as well that I spent the morning north. Nice shade on the east side when I got home so I could start excavating by hand the area for 2 water tanks. Found a huge mass of bedrock right where I'd rather it wasn't. Hopefully I can chip away at it to create a nice level spot for the NE side tanks. 67,87,45,0,B
