I'm going to build an outdoor kitchen while I'm at the jambo. The workshop will be demoing how to construct and use it. In case you're trying to imagine what it will look like, there are a bunch of different ways to do it. I've attached some photos for artistic inspiration. I always wanted to make one and figured this would be the best opportunity. Adobe construction is ideal for hot, arid environments. And the best part is - you can't really mess it up. If you don't like how things turned out, you just kick it over and start a new one.

Wow that would be awesome! What sort of materials are you going to need? I'm guessing a lot of adobe eh? I know a good spot near the Library to grab some.

Actually not really. I built one at Bluegrass rainbow and it didn't take a lot of coals. The heat gets trapped in the walls instead of lost to the open air. That's how it cooks food. Rocket stoves are even better. They're much more efficient than an open campfire.

I realize it depends on design, but don't these generally require lots of fuel?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.75 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.75 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.75 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
Cincy, somehow is full of kids last year or so, like it.
