Our initial attempts to cut the metal lath material we’re using for increasing surface area on our evapotron were not pretty — dull tin snips were not the right tool for that job. Thankfully we were able to consult with Gabriel’s brother-in-law Mike, who runs a pre-fabrication shop in San Francisco, and he knew exactly what would be best to cut the material. He also offered to make the cuts, which was a definite blessing.
Last night Julian, Grant, Gabriel and Amanda met at the Berkeley CSO to get some good work done on our camp preparations. We worked on our shower structure (aka the “Tower of Shower”) and an evapotron of our own design (to help evaporate used water at the camp). We also got our 30′ dome actually ordered so it should be on its way soon! It was a lot of fun and we’re really looking forward to the next 2 weeks of preparation before we drive out to the playa. As always, we welcome your thoughts, prayers and good intentions!
