Tonight would be a good night to take pictures of the sky - maybe particularly after midnight. There will be streaks across the sky - maybe 15 or more starting after 9 p.m.-meteors.

After following your blog all these years, it's nice to see what is happening at the field lab. I enjoyed the video.

Great video, no hype . No sarcastic remarks by the interviewer.Didn't try to
bait you into saying something sensational (negative).

I've been looking in the same area for land. I'm with John as far as getting away from the fast pace and stress of life. Looking around for at least a 40 acre track. Keep up the great work John and hope you'll bring an up dated video of your progress ...... loved the this video by Kirsten.

Nice video. When was it shot? By chance did you take any video during the recent memorable rain event?
Thanks as always,
"Compost" Bob (Not sure how I got promoted to Bishop?)

A very nice overview of your project and what is going on. Enjoyed it greatly.

@John ... I must have stepped into a pile ... or got into a bad habit ... or got Googled! Regardless, the "Bishop" has been exed and the real me is back!

I like the video a lot.. it fills in a lot of John's quest.

I wonder about being able to grow food sustainably in that part of the country. John says he is a better carpenter than farmer.

How successful are others living the off grid lifestyle in arid lands at growing veggies?

The steers, burros, rabbits etc seem to be able to make a go of it - as herbivores... as well as the other critters like coons.

the really interesting thing about off-grid these days - you can figure out solar panels and propane but the internet is a different thing1

John; I've have followed you for nearly 5 yrs. and when back to your 1st post when I found your site.

As a carpenter, I understood the 4x4 under house because of wind, as a foundation, BUT, those pvc pipes under the house have had me stumped for 5+years!
