Comment: Wanna do an "ask Smudge"?

Wanna do an "ask Smudge"?

Bill said you guys can ask me questions and that would be fun.

The questions I get these days have to do with your specific environment. Recently somebody asked how they do a root cellar when the water table is about 36" down. Well ok that's a challenge. Evaporative cooling helped them but I think we're looking at a DIY thermal exhange thing, they say at water level they have a thermal break and it's 65F year round.

OK that's a start.

So I guess I'm at the level of expertise to where we're really applying these thing locally and bioregionally which is...well it's just plain fun. A challenge is refreshing.

I'm still waiting for somebody from Alaska to tell us how it works. If they use root cellars or dry storage and do they still harvest ice and strawbox it? And can they use the land to NOT have things freeze? Because I have no clue. And I can't wait to find out.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most people who think sew actually rip.
