**Tuesday: Met at the farm to try to figure out when we will meet throughout the semester.  Turns out to be tricky.  We chose Tuesday at 2:30 and Friday at 11.  Both of which don't work at this point.  Discussed heat exchangers and tried to think about whether a less of a larger tube or more of a slimmer tube will do a better job of transfering heat.  Ehren's going to look into that.  I'm working on tempered glass.  We talked about different mounting ideas.  Charlie came up with one that sounds good, ice damn free and feasible.  Dan, Ehren, and I used the solar pathfinder, and happily found that only minimal shade in December will decrease the excellence of the southern roof we are planning to use.

**Wednesday: Email Geoff from Thrid Sun to find out about tempered glass.  Still haven't heard back.

**Tuesday: Inside planning and brainstorming day.  Discussed what we've done thus far, where we go from here.  Decided that we would abandon the plan to reuse the fuel tanks, opting instead for using our other meter by meter cube storage tank salvaged from the Nicholsons a few years back.  Also discussed our heat exchanger.  Charlie's aluminum, finned unit seemed like a great plan at first.  Later Charlie found out though, that it will scale with time, hugely reducing its heat transfering abilities with time.  We also made a supply list of what will be needed to revamp the solar hot water unit.

**Saturday: Colin and Charlie went shopping, Ehren began work and I showed up at 10 to help ( not knowing that I was expected at 8ish.)  Charlie brought donuts!  We made great progress with attaching blue board, and doing the first stages of gluing our tyvek on.  It was a long hot day.

**Sunday:  We were all sunburned from saturday.  Colin broke out the sunscreen.  We finished up the tyvek, waited for charlie, and attached the wood frame which will give the glass something to fit into.  It looks good.  Colin and I moved it off of the grass and placed it upside down so that no water will get in.  We still need to chaulk a few seams and install the glass.

Discovery: Having a job that says that you are "on duty 24 hours a day" does not lend itself to getting a lot of classwork done. oops.
