X-Ray view of John Fortuna's geo-dome in progress. Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang!!!!

Emily and I took a ride out into the boonies the other day to visit John Fortuna's geo-dome in progress. It is a kit project he ordered from CA, but he has been making some custom mods as he has been assembling it. He is stoked to have the framing done! I know the feeling!
As it so happens Emily and myself have been there before... just a few days earlier I was working a plumbing job, renovating a gas station bathroom just down the road. The job went horribly wrong and I called Emily to come and rescue me!!! I was so shaken up she suggested that we take a walk in the woods, and so we found a turn off into the wood with out a NO TRESPASSING sign posted and started following the access road which turned into a trail, which petered out into forest. It started raining. We got naked. It was excellent. Standing in the forest in the rain with my dear friend.. all the bad vibes just slide off my body into the soil. We came up on the back of the property, saw the pond, but not the dome, and decided that we should turn around and go back before we got shot! When we followed John directions out to the property we were so grateful to be returning to a place that seemed to call us as a refuge from the insanity of the world, and of course were over whelmed that we had been there not but a few days before!

Seeing that it is in x-ray stage of completion it seemed fitting to use the nagative feature on my new camera. Nice spot on the pond to build.
