report from the field...
Tffnguy, Ring, and Robert swung by early this morning for a quick tour. They were on their way south for breakfast at the Motor Inn. They invited me to come along but I declined. Five minutes after they left - the thought of a real restaurant breakfast overwhelmed me so I shot off after them. Joined up with the crew just in time to get my order in. After - we headed over to check out Frann's ( http://frannbro.blogspot.com/ )latest progress on her earthbag building. I must say that I was quite impressed with what she has accomplished with the help of her friend and neighbor Denese (http://thepathtobliss.blogspot.com/ ).
I really love this madmax structure that she built early on. 80,93,71,0,W
And thanks to my IT guy in the UK for sending me this link months ago about a creative use of a fresnel lens.
