buildin' a ger  
Item the zero'th
Hey y'all. Thank you for having an open camp where mildly curious lookers can be consoled.

Item the first
After over a year unemployed in NJ I have gotten frustrated at how much housing costs and I wanted a big improbable project. I discovered Tim Anderson's inspiring but improbable Instructable on building a free-but-nearly free ger of scavenged materials. As of tomorrow I hope to have about half the wood for the lattice of the walls. Maybe. So I'd like to chat Yurts etc with others who are experienced in these things.

Item the second
I was in the SCA in Boston in the early 1990s. We are interested in continuing in the arts, sciences and skills that promote self-sufficiency but not in the politics, etc or fancy dress. Husband in particular is highly allergic to quasi-noble hierarchy. So I was kinda wondering if we might find a little home on the steppe. Or at least visit.
