The final workshop is the Rocket Mass Heater innovators workshop (Sept. 19- Oct. 3. Pick your own dates/programs, see link)
The woodshed on skids is finished and the pros and cons are chatted over since it has been put into use.
The comforts of the tee pee with the rocket mass heater (it got down to 26 below 0 this winter) are brought up it sounds like it held up well (heat output).
The group then takes on several small topics of interest including: the Polaris and its usefulness at snow removal, living in close quarters (and its politics), hay box cookers, the roads and their maintenance, compost showers, Ford Rangers, Tim's welding skills +, a Jocelyn arm, update!
I kinda have to agree that having a sense of community with like-minded people is really important, and there's just something about being around like-minded people in real life that's really wonderful! I want to experience more of that in my daily life.
