Got a newsletter from 'em by e-mail last week. Erica's written an e-book on fire stuff, and Ernie's setting up a hoop-house to build a 50' Wharram cat. And will heat the building shed with ... A rocket stove.

When he was in Michigan he was talking about wanting to build a Wharram cat.

It's going to be wheelchair accessible, so that if his leg goes out, he can still sail it.

Ernie is a total f-ing legend.

Hope he sails it down here.........:)

My kids still quote an Ernie-ism. The older lad had just come home from a Crossfit workout, and was talking about lifting stuff with Ernie. Who observed thusly about the kind of problems his leg does cause:

"Hell, I can pick up the front of a Subaru; I just can't put it anywhere."

He'll sail that damned boat anywhere he wants. Hope he and Erica end up again at my door, by whatever road.

They were here, too, we met some local permaculture folks through them. Haven't heard much lately, I don't know how I didn't end up on their email list. Can you send that to me, too, Gareth? And feel free to stop by, I'd love to hear about your winter trip firsthand.

Just sent it Steven, I was in Portland a week last Saturday, on my way back from visiting Adam in Bangor and stopped at the British Indian restaurant, which is now Iranian British Indian. I almost called.

I just restarted my Winter thread.
