    I think I remember (from an undergrad art history class in Asian art that I took back in the Paleolithic Era) that there are ancient rammed earth houses in China still in evidence today. But don’t quote me on that.

    There were no earth ships when my parents “vacationed” us through the southwest in the fifties, just all the scenery and sage brush. I realize now we did not get to Taos, which I now consider a shame. I wonder what interested my brothers? I collected little bits of sage and polished it to a high sheen with a bit of broken glass as my parents drove those miles and miles of highway.

    I enjoyed reading every post of your road trip – you have been to very picturesque places. We drove up and down many Tennessee hilly mountains last week but it is not the same as those big mountains in the west. The earthships are attractive to my eyes, ingenious and fun. Y’all are having a great road trip.

    I feel like Young Earthshippers should have a special kind of handshake or salute with a name like that. What a trip! You take the most incredible vacations. I am inspired to head south, east, west, even north.

    Isn’t it just beautiful? I can’t get enough of that part of the world. And cedar scented anything makes me feel good.

    It’s somewhat hard to believe that you didn’t leave the country. So many different cultures out there…Are those earthship house people off the grid? And Byron’s project looks cool. Black and white embroidery, what a lovely idea.

    Late at night and no energy for long comments, but had to say that Byron would be on my list of people I’d most like to have dinner with. Along with yourself, of course.
    And here I thought the guy who helped me knit a sweater on late shifts years ago was pretty unusual, but anybody who does blackwork puts him in the shade.

    i’ve read about the earthships and i find them intriguing. there’s a place near my hometown that i suspect is an earthship.

    so um…when do we get to see samples of byron’s..um…samplers?

    Oooooh, Earthships! That will be on our Second Great Out West Trip: The Southwest, scheduled (tentatively) for summer 2015.
