Experience in Appropriate Technology[edit | edit source]

  • Cooking and "domestic" usage. At home installed a garden, compost and water catchment system working on the idea of dew collection.
  • Previous construction, salvage, and demolition diver. We salvaged boats, deepened and widened channels, performed hydro-graphic surveying, pier evaluation and repair,and poured cement foundations for piers. Because diver was a non standard military occupation, a large portion of our gear was more appropriate tech oriented as we found/made/modified and repaired what we needed. You can't buy a patch for a ship 100 years old in unknown condition in an unknown location and position.
  • Repair computer components and other electronics.
  • Various entertainment or experiments. Built and raced a boat made out of cardboard and able to support 3 people.
  • Made a flotation device out of inner tubes, wood, and coolers to ensure security and temperature of beer while floating down the Sacramento River.
