the Trash vitae

Trash is the editor-in-chief of an independent Colorado micro-publisher/ design studio. I dabble in digital photography, the lost art of film image making, and guerilla digital video. DrMAC Studios specializes in books and videos on self-reliance, gardening, dumpster diving, urban foraging and living off the excesses of others.

cheap transportation

As most who have been following my blog for a while know ol Trash doesnt use a car. Whenever I need to get anywhere its either by hoof, bike or public transportation. I do have a large converted trailer for the bike for heavier loads but this rig works well for a jaunt to the hardware of grocery store.
Cheap on leg power and oh so good for the health.

Sunday morning educational

Apparently the National Geographic channel is getting in on the action now. There's a new show out there called Doomsday Preppers. Quite informative and in some cases humorous. ONe of the episodes included the dreaded Dervaes family.. Quite interesting. You ought to catch it if you can or download it and watch the episodes. Alot of good information and also alot of mistakes to avoid. Definitely worthwhile.

On the home front we are still looking at about 10-12 inches of snow on the ground and we are working on the design of the blog and its additional features in the background. I am also working on the gathering of seeds and additional replacement supplies for spring..
Happy Sunday

While I was wandering around on FB this morning I began chatting with FB friend who is Lloyds assistant . Very inspiring to step back once in a while. SO I thought I would share this recent video.
