Ernie and Erica,

I did not see a relevant thread to post this without hijacking someone else's train of thought.

We met at the INWPC in Spokane. Our booth was across the way from yours.

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed listening to your podcast with Paul. I totally want to have you guys come and do an on site evaluation of our place when we are ready to build a proper RMH. Why do it two or three times, when you can just do it right the first time?

Thank you for what you do,

Wilson - homesteading supplies

Well, thanks! The both of you.
I have to admit when I scan for threads to open first, it's hard to resist one with my name on it, labeled 'Fan Mail'.

Wilson, if you were at the INWPC in Spokane, does that mean you're located near Spokane?

We have an intro workshop scheduled for April 28 in Tonasket, and will be traveling down to Reno and likely to Idaho and Montana at various points in the summer.
Would love to work a site visit into our travel schedule, and if you want to set workshop dates soon, we can let folks know at the April intro and maybe recruit some participants for a full-scale installation workshop.


Play with nature, make nifty stuff:

Chaya and I are in Lincoln County Montana area between Kalispell and Bonners Ferry, ID--We are about threeish hours from Spokane. I would imagine that you are heading across I-90? We are still a few hours north of that line. . . . Let me pick up that thought over PM.

I heard that you were doing a RMH Across America tour, and I would love to get something organized in time, but alas I cannot pull it off. NW Montana is very much a wood burning stove area, we could use some rocketification fosho. Hmmmmm, the wheels are turning for a great education/out reach event!

Keep up the good work you two!

It's in the permaculture playing cards. Here's the link:
