My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

My new wind powered washing machine. Screw peddling a bike. Only took 2.5 gallons of wash water to do several t-shirts and they came out clean and better yet smelled clean after the wash. Don't know how much water the rinse cycle took since I just hung the shirts on the line and sprayed them down with a nozzle. Couldn't have taken over a couple of gallons for that to.
Trick is to hang the bucket up on the clothes line when its windy and the wind swings the bucket back and forth doing the work. Left it up for a couple of hours before the rense.
