This is the first post.
The name of the blog pretty well tells you what up.
I started in late 2005 buying property in the Davis Mountains as a vacation spot. Today I have built from ground up a 350 sq ft sturdy cabin with complete kitchen , bath and large covered porch on about 11 acre's. @ 6000 ft elevation . I once lived in this section of Ft Davis back in 1997 for about a year in a rental.
After many travellers from Ft Davis to Alpine ,to Terlingua back to the Gulf Coast and back to the mountains.Lots of things have changed. will share more as I get use to "The Blog"
I am an electrician by trade ,have worked high rises in Houston , In Terlingua the Water plant (RO @80.000 gallons per day) for The Study Butte Water Corp at the end of the world as most know it in The Chihuahuan Desert , yes there is a desert in Texas and I lived in it for 5 years. Also my first renewable power system in 1998 .Worked US Clay L.P mining operations near Terlingua Ranch 52 miles South of Alpine off 118 south out of a N.M.H.S.A. red tag on their electrical system in there crushing plant , Ground up electrical on Alpines newest grocery store . 40 acre Greenhouse in Ft Davis for AEP ,yep those vine tomatoes in the store, been there and done that. That enough about electricity , I have forgot more than most will every learn !
My good friend JW at http.//thefieldlab.blogspot.com/ has inspired me to create this as a way to share our way of life. I am still currently on the Gulf coast ,but travel to Ft Davis often as I can ! I know his project will be difficult to say the least , as has been mine. ETA for leaving the coast is summer 2010.
That's all for today. probably more than ya needed but I'm a Texan , and a lot of fun around the camp fire !
