Ride on to Abundant Mobility

Friday, September 24th, 2010

The ride and workshop had a great, supportive turnout that definitely turned heads and made Kirksville a livelier place for the evening. At the workshop, we discussed different ways to make Kirksville and it’s citizens more able to implement alternative transportation.

The mayor was even highly intrigued by the idea of having city sponsored pedicabs operating downtown. I’ll be following up on that idea next week.

Wolfgang Hoeschele, the workshop moderator, will be writing up an overview of the workshop for  I will post the link when it’s completed.

Solar Oven

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

Jon has been building and experimenting with Solar Ovens recently, which will hopefully culminate into a Solar Oven workshop with the next month while the sun is still high enough to use it effectively in NEMO.

He’s got one working made from a cardboard box, foil, wheat paste (a glue made from boiling wheat), a block of wood, and a plastic produce bag from the grocery store.   It gets pretty scorching in there.  It’s hit at least 250.

He designed it off of this one, and will be making a few other models too.
