There are SOME drawbacks to living 90% off the grid. The inability of a digital reporter to earn a living, for instance. I could solve this with a $10 unlimited data phone card from 7-11, a $200 thermal converter and an efficient rocket stove that would take two weeks to make, but in order to […]

Green Inner-City Cluster Kickoff
