1. Off To Montana – Okay so operation board the dogs and cats is complete and we are soon on our way to the airport. We will be in Montana until the 13th. During this time I will be learning from Sepp Holzer who is one of my true heroes. I will also be doing this on a remote farm where I won’t likely have internet access. I will have access at the place I am staying at in the evenings. So I will be responding to emails, customer support requests etc. after hours, but the response times will be much longer than normal. During this time it would be best to hold off on all non customer service emails until I return.
2. MSB “bigsky” Sale – As usual when I travel long term for an event I have a sale to help cover some of the cost of travel. This time around the dog and cat kennel fees are the big cost. 4 animals for 13 days isn’t cheap, if you are looking for a business to start, boarding animals may be the way to go! In any event if you use the discount code “bigsky” you can get your first year of the MSB for only 35 dollars. If you pay by mail just write the code on the form, if you pay with silver we will simply give you 16 months per ounce vs. 12. You can join the MSB here.
3. First Entry for “If I Wanted To Save America” – Dene Brock long time community member has entered the first video for the “If I Wanted to Save America” video contest. Details on the contest are here. You can follow a forum thread about it and see Dene’s amazing video here. She set the bar pretty high, can’t wait to see what some of you other folks come up with. Dene might win but let’s not let it be by default.
4. Next Week’s Schedule – On Monday there is a listener calls show all ready to go, it will publish itself about 7am central. Technology is awesome! Warning Keith Snow answers another cooking question so eat something before you listen. Tuesday will be a show with Steven Harris on hydrogen fuel and its future along with the usual Steve Harris mind blowing things you didn’t know about energy. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are up in the air for right now. I am taking my gear to try and do some interviews and publish from up in Montana. Just please understand I am a guest at this event, I have to defer to the schedules of others while I am there. If nothing else I will publish a few episodes of “TSP Classic” while I am away.
Note – The photo above is from a listener named Bill who Paul Wheaton and I will be staying with. The big guy in the middle is our own Paul Wheaton, to his right is Sepp, to Paul’s left is Bill. I don’t know the other two guys but I am jealous. Bill sent this to me last night, the had just had some good Austrian chow and were having some nice wine and “picking Sepp’s brain”. Notice that Sepp and Paul are clearly preppers as they are part of the beard brigade.
