Went back to the porta cabin to go to sleep last night and I found that there was a frozen mouse in my water jug. Kind of gross, kind of funny, kind of not sure if I will use that jug anymore.

The funny thing is I had just aquired a cork for the bottle that day and was going to put the cork in that night when I got back to the cabin but there was a mouse in it which postponed my corking plans.

Took the quadrotor out above Wofati 0.7 yesterday. I would say it is quite beautiful from above.

I thought that this picture might be good to show what all is going on under the dirt of the wofati in perspective.

Beautiful aerial shots. I've been scheming to have some birds eye view photos taken of my wofati project too.

Where are the three uphill drainage ditches in wofati 0.7?

My understanding was that these ditches were critical to the design, but I haven't seen any mention of them. Maybe I missed something.

In my wofati, which is perhaps in a wetter climate and on a steeper slope with clayier soils, the uphill drainage ditches and berms are major landscape elements, and visibly redirect water coming down the hill in streams.

The Earthworks on this wofati aren't complete yet. But there will be photos when they are.

you can buy fairly cheap quadroters for like 50-100 with cameras for taking photos or what ever it may be cool for you to use.

Also the cheap ones don't have great video quality and they are shaky as all get out but if it is for your own use it may be worth it.
