We went to a bonfire last night held by our friends A & C (Happy unBirthday, C!). It was a mellow event, very relaxing, and we had a great chat with our half-time California friends. They told us a little about their own off-grid living here in central NYS. We talked battery capacity - how butch is that! They told us about their solar stove/oven from Solar Cookers International, which gave me frugal off-grid survivalist-type consumer lust.
