Fought with the revamped solar fryer for a couple of hours. Figured out why I abandoned the project 7 years ago - just not enough surface area. The goal all along has been to cook a batch of Jiffypop with it. Let's face it - Jiffypop is a show in itself and cooking it with solar is a win-win. Just not enough sun bouncing back to create enough heat to pop...the oil needs to be 450° for the magic to happen. Cashed in some Chupa mug bucks on paypal for a dish with roughly double the surface area. Also ordered another 200 one inch mirrors as it will take about 600 to cover the bigger dish. That video will have to wait a week or two. 87,91,48,0,B
Decided to revisit a very old project that was never really utilized to its' full potential. Had to replace about 40 mirrors on the solar fryer. Just so happened that I recently came across two mirror orders still in unopened boxes that I received about 7 years ago. Gearing up for another TFL off grid cooking video coming soon. 83,87,40,0,B
Presently I am working on a documentary with the title ”Reset”.
It will be based on interviews with people who have chosen to change identity and start a new life.I am primarily looking for people who have made a choice to do this – not people who were forced to change identity.Today we have interviewed four persons who for different reasons have chosen to start over under a new or hidden identity. Now I am looking for other people who would be willing to share their stories. Please contact me on email@example.com if you are interested, or if you have suggestions of people - and I’ll be happy to send more information and clips about the project.
Souped up the Canon T3i with a few extras for under 200 bucks. Gearing up for some astophotography. Seems I have been out here almost 10 years and haven't really taken advantage of our dark skies. I hardly even take notice of starry nights any more. I have been inspired by my friend TJ Avery. FYI - he does photo workshops every year in the Big Bend.
Picked up a battery grip to add a little more juice to the rig. (I remember when these where known as "auto winders" back in the days of film cameras.) Of course I also needed some extra batteries with a charger. To round it out I bought a relatively inexpensive fish-eye lens.
After a few tests I need to send my camera body off to Canon for a long overdue cleaning. It has been subjected to a great deal of abuse over the years. 79,89,55,0,C
