From the Marin County Sheriff:
Due to a vehicle accident that occurred last night where a truck ran
into the Greenbridge Gas & Auto Service station located at 11401
Highway 1, Point Reyes Station, the station suffered major damage that
has disabled the power to all of its gas pumps. The owners of the

Finally: Lew and Evan will be manning a Shelter Publications booth in one of the maker halls on how we make books. They'll be giving away free copies of the Tiny Homes on the Move mini-book and selling copies of the full-size book for $20 apiece (cheaper than Amazon).
(When we start up The Shelter Blog in a few weeks, I'll be putting much of the building stuff on the new blog, and doing more posts like this.)
I'm doing a slide show with about 100 images from Tiny Homes On The Move tonight at the Bolinas Community Center on Wharf Road, at 7:30 PM. We'll also be selling books (at a discount) and giving away free mini-books (2x2" -- 64 pages).

Well if you say so. Looks like it would be right at home in Dwell magazine. A reminder: I put up stuff I find interesting, not that I necessarily like. The story behind this one is weird.
