Left the earthship with Chaco at 9:30 this morning for a walk and walked up the road. Round trip walk was a little over an hour. In that time I passed no houses and saw 6 people, 4 dogs, and 2 trucks. All the people I saw were people I like, all neighbors, the dogs, too. Life on the edge is grand.
We are now in the cold season in the earthship. As the sun is higher in the sky it doesn't penetrate further than the gray water planters so the house doesn't heat up. Nice in July but chilly in April. We are trying to get the in-floor solar powered radiant heat to work but having pump issues.
All in all life is good.
