In the 1970s Michael Reynolds pioneered a new kind of home, giving us clear instructions on how to build them in three volumes. I have uploaded all three for you and also included a more recent fourth book I was able to dig up.

If we are going to ensure that we have always have access to these books (no matter what is happening in the world) we must have a solar charger for our device.

It is for this reason that I ask you to save the books on your device rather than assuming they will always be available to you through my LBRY account.

Fortune favours the prepared.

The JouleStick

I have seen many solar products in my time and this I can confidently say is one of the best because it is practical, functional, durable & inexpensive. It can be a torch or a lamp and most importantly, it can charge your device.

When enough of you indicate to me you are interested I will buy a box of these JouleSticks and sell them on to you for the equivalent of around $50 (plus postage), payable in fiat or crypto.

I want to mention also that the JouleStick is compatible with the JouleBox, should you ever decide to expand on your kit.

By the way, I made both of the above films and even took the JouleBox for a test run on an off grid island in Indonesia. My product review can be seen here. Bottom line: I seriously love these products!

Please let me know in the comments if you are interested in any of them.

Or if you prefer, you can contact me privately on Discord: samstonehill#3438

This is SUCH important, new-paradigm information. Thank you for posting it again. :) I love that the possibilities are endless and, as you say, disrupting the cost of living industry.

Keep up the great posts, blogging, photographs, vlogging & inspiration.

With Love From ecoTrain

Am just pleased this info is now locked forever on a blockchain. Let's hope everyone runs off and starts building Earthships now!
