Day 7

Edit this
Day 7: John dries a lot of food from his garden in a solar drier he built at his homestead in the Okanogan Valley. Gardening has to be done carefully since rattlesnakes come down out of the rocks into the garden starting in late spring, likely for water. The snakes came a month earlier this year with warmer than normal temperatures. @itomhyde for @burndiary #photodiary #ontheroad #okanogan

John’s house

Edit this
The home John Goss built for his mother in the Okanogan Valley of Washington State. Wildfire has burned through here twice in the past, once over the home itself. The earth tube construction, using the earth on site, some cement and bags, provides a relatively fire safe home. #photodiary #ontheroad

Day 7: Meet John Goss. He’s good people living life the way he wants at the end of the road, his dome houses backed up against the cliffs, like a scene out of Star Wars. More later, hoofin’ it to Wenatchee to deliver a motorcycle to the repair shop by 5:30. Live Allman Brothers cranked in the pickup. Runnin’ late, driving fast. @itomhyde for @burndiary #ontheroad #photodiary
