Episode-263- An Interview with Matt Hundley aka Trioxin — 20 Comments

  1. Excellent show Jack and Trioxin. VERY motivational. I really got a lot out of this one….Thanks!!!

  2. Great show, gentlemen! Would love to hear more interview shows in the future, Jack.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of the thread where Trioxin discussed how to build one of these portable power boxes?

  3. Awesome info about the solar panels. I feel like I just died and went to heaven. *drivng home in a few minutes past some solar signs!!!*

  4. Thanks for all love folkz. It was a blast doing the show. It made me feel like I was giving a bit back to all the people that have motivated me here on the forum. 🙂

  5. I am curious about the incubator idea for growing seeds but I can’t find anything on the Internet about it…can you direct me to a link? Also, I can’t believe I had Ground Cherries growing wild in the back of my lot. I kept mowing them down as weeds until one day I decided to look them up on the Internet but what I came up with were “Chinese Lanterns” used for decorative purposes but they are the same plant! Grrrr now I have to buy seeds to plant the darn things again 😉

  6. Be careful when eating wild plants. the coommon chinese lantern plant (Physalis alkekengi) is differant from actual ground cherries, (Physalis pubescens). From what I have read, chinese lanterns are more reddish, and have little to no taste, but are still edible (I guess).
    When it comes to palnts, make sure you can idenitfy it before you eat it. 🙂

  7. Great show, Trioxin and Jack. Loved it. These interview shows are really fun to listen to.

    This episode motivated me. If a guy with a pregnant wife and only $35 can get it done …

  8. I just called a local sign/equpment leasing company, and nobody had ever called \’em. The guy in charge of sign leasing took my name and number, and seemed interested in my \"green blacksmith shop\" project. He says they usually get a panel or two in every month that gets knocked over by a truck or hit by rocks/debris.

    *high five* to everyone.

  9. Jack and Matt,

    Thank you both for the lively talk between the two of you on this episode, the hints for where to look for things (like solar panels, etc.) and also the suggestion of “comfortable minimalism”. Matt, I might suggest (if you’ve not done so already) writing up a quick post on living a comfortably minimalist lifestyle and how (in your case) you cut your lifestyle and clutter down.

  10. This was a really great show. You guys had a good chemistry. Trioxin, I enjoyed your ideas and videos about them. I’ll be trying ground cherries next spring.

    Jack, I think interviewing more listeners/forum members is a good idea. It’s motivational to hear what others are doing for those of us who don’t have as much time to spend on the forum.

  11. This is an amazing interview.

    It never occurred to me that you could create an electrical backup system using batteries only without any solar panels.

    This is an idea that I think my wife could get on board with. (She’s not too keen on putting solar panels on our new roof.)

    By the way, good tip about sourcing used/damaged solar panels.

    Keep up the good work Jack!
