Latest is the greatest....! I finally found a good used juicer I could afford and bought what a treat to have something I don't have to clean three or four times before I get a vaso of the good stuff.

I found an Omega 4000. The one with a plastic to be gentle....and all stainless innards...

I also just assembled a 5 gallon plastic bucket "balcony composter" and can use my waste organic material in a good way now.

I seem to be staying home more these days, enjoying it a lot and thinking about maybe doing a few things like start building some gardening soil, etc.

I don't think things will implode but I think things including the climate will continue changing and in some fairly radical ways and it can't hurt to develop the property to be a more sustainable place for our future.

That's what I am up to these days as well as helping Kit move to Silver City and her new post there as manager of the USFS dispatch Center there.....

We are happy to be only 2 hours apart rather than the 6 hours it has is much better and the ride over Emory Pass is awesome.

Latest van makeover...

I will get some pix taken soon and put them up but I finally finished the latest van makeover and like it a lot.

My goals were to take out all bulk propane, make the passenger seat swivel, lighten up on stuff and build a way that I can expand the bed so Kit can occasionally travel with me in the van.

It all came together and is more open and spare and safer as I don't expect any more fires due to the propane. I had two fires on the last trip and they were extremely disconcerting....this was with many precautions and checks for leaks....I actually think I will try to do most of my cooking outside the van unless I am in bad weather.

I am not recommending anyone else do this regarding propane but it makes me feel much better.

So until I take some photos....
