The Field Lab
« on: March 27, 2011, 02:42:31 PM »
I don't know if anyone here will find this interesting, but I've been following this project for quite some time. John Wells was a fashion photographer in NYC who sold his house and most of what he owned and bought 40 acres of land near Terlingua, Texas. He has built a small cabin that is off the grid relying on solar and wind power and a water cachement system. His website is http://www.thefieldlab.org/. He also has a blog http://thefieldlab.blogspot.com/. There are some youtube videos as well including this one by Hewlit-Packard
Also a New York Times article http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/10/garden/10texas.html?_r=2&src=dayp.
Never regret money spent on old books, old dogs or old friends.
