Thanks for the encouragement!

My boys are 11 and 12 and we are in the middle of nowhere. We homeschool and it seems like we are always doing something and would be easier living closer to a town. Short trip is 160 miles (round) one way is 140 with overnight and I am left behind to man the place. Makes it hard sometimes and still have to work job and at the ranch.

It took us two years before we listed and not really going anywhere, unless the right deal comes around, before this place sells.

I already lost this season to the thought of moving and now doing what I should of done to start with..... Business as usual until something causes a change in direction.

Thinking about moving is a pretty big distraction. We can't wait to see what you do.

If we are somewhat familiar with area, the internet makes things easy. If it is completely unknown, the distraction is going there and trying to get a feel for the people/town/general area environment in a short window.

Then the back and forth of why we should move and pro/cons. All while driving to this/that...... :laugh:

The wagons are circling this morning so who knows what is in store for this week?

We are not too big on Colorado, but looking as a possibility.

Adam, if you get things set up you can probably still get some cold weather crops going for winter I would imagine. At a minimum if you can keep the system from freezing over winter it will get you a little age on the system to be running a little better in spring. Any way to include low tunnels over the beds when you get them built? I've been looking at the raised beds people build with hinged low tunnels over them... something like that which would be easily removed in the summer time.

From what I was reading a few weeks ago they claimed that for every layer of glazing you add (even layer of poly/plastic tunnel covering) it moves you 1.5 zones south for your growing zone (might be more like 1.5 zones down if you are in the mountains...=) looking at your average weather temps and YUCK...currently 37 degrees there is about as bad as being 95 degrees here all weekend long..)

I will be encompassing my greenhouse within a greenhouse (old cover from a previous season) with another layer over the FT area with a blow pump to create an air gap? (who knows)

Look at running a decoupled system with water exchanges as needed to keep most of the heat with the fishes.

My makeshift cover last year, with lost of gaps, and heaters kept water temps in the mid 60's with better results with snow on the ground.

More learning curves this winter (if here)

Wife says no to the Coop expansion, mainly b/c it has been put into (albeit poor use) use for momma and baby with the excess roosters in the other portion. Chicken soup I am thinking.....

The only way to work!

As for the learning curves, it is fun when there is a direct application and not just because you have to learn it for some test..... Which will be coming shortly in the form of a final exam.....

So, I went to my local saw mill and got true 2x12 material. I am going to try something when building the DWC bed to make things hopefully go easier in terms of building the bed. I have not run the numbers yet, so I'll not let my idea out until I have actually tried it.....

Hope it works to my satisfaction b/c I'm not looking forward to the alternative :?

Things are almost cycled. Trip to Albuquerque tomorrow to pick up the remaining fittings to construct my MBBR (or Amazon if I'm not successful) as well as my pipe for the supply/return. And going to figure out the air system to I can get that online also.

Water falling on the bio balls is soothing to me.

Congrats! I'll hopefully finish in the 90's, but not as high. So that further solidifies your position as head number cruncher. I'll just build it to the exacting specifications the design requires if I am able to participate.

Andy, the people who have only skimmed over your thread instead of actually reading the entire thing are going to be so confused as to why your certificate says your name is Andrew instead of Andreas =)

I'm not sure that "perscribed" is a word though... is that latin? LOL. Ryan should probably use spellcheck. I'd ask for a 50% refund for having your certificate typo'd
