I'm Max, from France, in the southern alps, by the italian border.
Chairlift pilot in the winter, roofer and carpenter the rest of the year. I might not fit in the pic here, as i'm a 4x4 nuts. Tho, my toyota is 23yo, and my iveco 4x4 work truck is 22. Both diesels. Fuel hasn't goten soo expensive that i've switched to biodiesel yet. All no frills no electronics machines, and mostly home fixed.
Mind you, i'm intrested in rocket stoves, and terra pretta too. And i've embarked into the building of a sawmill, and hope to fell trees to build my house. Most certainly post and beams.
