A screen-shot of the short feature video about the Dingos at the Mint 400 that aired on German TV! Here's the link if you want to watch the whole thing (including Crusty yelling at me to get a hammer):

Romy's putting up the roof! I wanted a shaker roof to keep it traditional and old looking, but we finally went with the cheaper and simpler option.

Romy is measuring out some trim for the new door we installed to the laundry room and half-bath. It didn't have a door before.

Today I FINALLY made the continous-brew kambucha set up. Its fermented black sweet tea. We got the culture from Jonathan, a guy that Romy works and carpools with. I can't wait to drink the kambucha!

On the ride today we went to Black Rock Point. We rode through a nice lawn of salt grass on the edge of the dry, desert playa. It was cool!

Today we went on a motorcycle ride to find the mysterious Quinn River. It's a river that flows into the Black Rock Desert playa and disappears into the dry lake bed (playa). We were riding and all of a sudden found it. You can't see it until you are right up on it. I was riding and then all of a sudden had to slam on the brakes or I would've fell in!

We went to the Black Rock Desert near Frog Pond to spend the 4th of July weekend at "4th of Ju-Playa." We've been having crazy weather for the past few weeks, with insane thunderstorms almost every afternoon. One of them hit us this evening and we had to hold the shade structure down so it wouldn't fly away!
