We’re here

Safe and sound. We’re busy taking a crash course on base maintenance as this morning is the only time that we have with Vera and Basil on the base. So far we’ve learned to purify water, reset the solar power system and the phone system, feed the parrot and dogs and cats, pay the staff, maintain the icemaker and chillers. Next is pumping water into the tanks, maintaining the batteries, changing out the butane tanks, and it goes on and on from there.

And this is just the stuff we have to do to make sure that everyone stays alive. Then we get to learn about the projects we’re working on :). Don’t have time for more right now….will write more later.

    Keep up the good work.

    Mel–how are you doing in the heat? Make sure you’re resting enough.

    Mary- The heat is ok, my feet are just a little swollen by the end of the day. I try to keep them up as much as possible. I’m finding I don’t have as much sustainable energy as I used too. But I so happy to be here.
