Summer is Here

Really trying to get a grasp on what bands are coming up. Someone suggested Meetup.com -- does anyone use this? I think that Google Plus has a lot to offer but it doesn't seem like anyone is using it the way I need right now. Either that or I am not using it right?

Ever since high school I associated June with graduation. Unfortunately, I have a few more Junes before my college is over.

My friends Kenneth, Michael (the other Mike) and Porter who all work at night clubs that are musically themed. They seem to meet a lot of cool people that way. I'm not sure how that would jive with my class schedule but it is something I have been thinking about. This town is so small.

Drilling Your Own Well

I saw a youtube video on how to drill your own water well using PVC pipe and hoses. With the hard red clay we've got around here, it would most likely take longer than this guy took, but it's nice to see that if you can score some basic supplies, you can make it work in an emergency situation or if you wanted to stay off grid for awhile especially in the heat we get around here.

I have a pretty sweet portable water filter that I take on backpacking treks just in case. I know there's all sorts of ways to guess whether water is drinkable or not, but I worry that wildlife may have a tolerance for bacteria in the water that I don't have and I'll end up sick. It would be nice to figure out a charcoal filtering solution for something like this for the Asimos family land.
