Summary

Paul Wheaton talks to Neil Bertrando about the book, "A Good Road Lies Easy on the Land," by Paul Zeedyk, which fits well with keyline design. They have established the concept of induced meandering. They talk about a surrounding circle of rocks and a "one-rock-dam" which keeps big chunks from filling your culvert. Neil shares a pneumonic device for remembering where to spill the water. They talk about marking out where they would like ponds and dams to be. Paul talks about fjording, and keeping vehicle gick out of the water. They recommend a small black locust or mountain mahogany bridge. Paul talks about utilizing a paddock shift system. Paul talks about managing a large acreage, and starting his piece of land and Paul Wheaton community. It is similar to Siberia. Neil and Paul talk about a land situation people can come to and get started from, even without a large savings. They talk about benevolent dictatorship.
