So maybe the truck was smoking a bit.
But that was better than when it quit running entirely,
at which time we put Taki to use as the propulsion unit for the operations to finish quickly.
In another week the Ark will be ready for guests and soon to be fully off grid, or maybe after summer as an AC may still be in order for most folks in August and that is too much for just solar power. In the meantime, I will be getting the place ready for the guests who will feel like they are floating on Walden pond at night, with the frogs and crickets at your bedside.
Please plan on a visit soon to Salvage, Texas to see what can be done with nothing but imagination, salvage, and human energy.
