Ever so slowly M&I are inching towards getting a retreat upstate together. We are dangerously close to getting a building permit, we have ReadyMade DIYM (Do It Yourself Modular) plans, and we have a composting toilet all picked out and ready to purchase. Before you know it we will have a place to sleep and… I don’t have to spell out what a toilet is for, do I? We are borrowing a generator which can provide some ability to recharge power tools and we can rough it for two days without running water. I am getting excited. The more time we are able to spend up there, the more time we are able to start cleaning. I promise to post some pictures so you can see what we are up against.
