Congratulations - you really deserve a wonderful place like this. I look forward to following your adventures there thru permies. Thanks for sharing so much information and carrying the pod people along for the ride!
Yeh earthworks that bring back creeks! I am working toward bringing back several old springs on my land - am planning the earthworks now. Will build them as soon as I can get the money together.
Oh wow. In your positions I think I would strongly look at earth building techniques like rammed earth or compressed earth block with clay like that.
But of course, you have a great many resources from which to choose. Looks great.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

I got this idea that it would be cool to stand at the top of the cliff and get one of those little helicopters with a camera on it and have it fly in - like that would make an excellent video intro for my vids. But they sounds freaky expensive and it sounds like they have very limited range.
