I have tried to contact you previously on Earthship.com with no success. I live in SW MO and would like to help you if possible, just for the knowledge.
I live about 45 min. Sw of Joplin, MO. I would like to get started on my own ES, but looking at the numbers for just the first stage, i.e. Tire Works, it will take about $13K just for this stage and I don't want to get to the point it is half finished and I run out of funds. I have land that I live on in a small trailer with my wife. She is not excited about the ES, but thinks anything will be better than the trailer. Socks our cat could care less about any of it. I have some bottles I have been saving that I could donate to your cause, maybe a hundred, mostly white wine type.
If you don't mind us dropping in sometime give me a call fouroneseven threeninethree sixsixthreefour.
