Ran into an old gf and her new bf. They seem good together. When I dated her she had hair.



Christmas time is coming, the Malls are getting ready, the kids are definitely ready.



No, you're supposed to eat that. :facepalm:

Driving around Tag one sees destruction here and there. Each one a story no doubt, the Malls could be fixed, I saw no post or tie beam damage in the areas we were allowed. The third floor of ICM department store is one, they have most of the stuff on the 1st floor hallway and a guard on the escalator making sure nobody goes up. Places like this...did people live there? Do they have the means to repair?



On the way out of town we spotted this. Not a lot of damage until one takes a good look and then its everywhere.



One cute thing, there are lots of kids directing traffic with signs and waving colored flags for no discernible reason. Most seem to have no purpose but in another case there is a kids network. We saw one sign that said STOP in a kid's hands who was frantic to get our attention so we stopped. Along comes a big truck on a narrow blind curve. Had we gone things would have been too tight.



That's it! Something a bit more on topic coming soon.

Took a bunch of pics of the lime kiln construction which I'll add in when everything is done. That way there's only one pic upload which I'm ashamed to admit the wife helps me with. I have the tech skills of a pebble.

So the platform with beach gravel was in last week. Today Sho and I set the bricks on it. There's a place underneath for air to enter the kiln, which is in the shape of a chimney, made of the bricks. The air enters from below and will feed oxygen through a steel grate on which will sit 14" of coconut coal. The grate is about an inch thick so the bricks which support it had to be buried an inch deeper. With that done we could build up the bricks on the side and then across the gate while keeping all level, forming a rectangular trough. Above the grate is the first burn chamber which is 14" deep and that's where the first coconut coal will be packed. That's how high the bricks are now, and when I took the pics to come. When we pack in the coco coal then we'll raise the chimney and add 14" of limestone. Then 6" of coco coal and 12" limestone, and then 6" cc and 12" lime. At that point we'll be 70" high. Now we'll wrap it in tie wire and pack red clay into any large cracks between the bricks. Then we'll light a fire under it and tend it through the night. When it cools we hope to have the first batch of quicklime. Tomorrow is off, there's a typhoon coming. Might last out the week.

That said, this is the current project. When the rain goes we'll be back at it. No more great epochs of time between info in this thread.

Pics to come.

Unhappy Re: Lancer's Philippine Build, Close to Australia Anyhoo...

Gudday Lancer
You have probably not got communications as I write this,but everyone around the world must be thinking about that massive storm that hitting the Philippines.
Typhoon Loanda is the biggest typhoon recorded with winds of 195 miles a hour.
Gusts of 235 miles an hour. I really pray that you and yours are in a safe place.
They are saying that it is fast moving so I'm hoping it does move away quickly for your sake and the rest of the Philippines.
Your in our thoughts
Regards dave

Hey Lancer

This looks like a super storm and I hope you and yours as well as the rest of the community cope well with this one. Just saw the prediction map for where it is heading and looks like Vietnam is in the track as well.

All the best in this difficult time and I hope your faith sustains you.

Hi Lancer

I agree with the others I saw the typhoon on the news tonight. I pray that you and your family all remain safe and the same to all those experiencing this devastating storm.

Lancer,

Our thoughts are with you from the other side of the world. I looked at the storm track and saw the Bohol was not in the direct path of the typhoon. Let's us know you are okay.

Thanks for your prayers and thoughts guys. Bohol missed the worst of it, particularly south Bohol. North Bohol where the quake hit got worse than we did once again. Leyte was hard hit and that's where our power comes from in the form of geothermal. So all the steel towers were knocked out plus some other damage. Been over two weeks with no flow of electrons.

Had an emergency solar generator set and a 1200w 12v-110v inverter so I set that up. It ran a TV and DVD player and a 12v fan so the kids could watch Barney. Am in the process of wiring a couple 12v pumps I had stored against the day when the catamaran project was building. Even now that there's power I want to see what those little pumps can do. The water tank for this building is maybe 30' up. The pumps develop 80 lbs of pressure... :dunno:

I've heard that the power will be shifted around from place to place because there isn't enough to go around, and that this is our turn, but we'll see.

Thanks again guys!
