gordon fry, from northern california. he has been here for the last 2 weeks or so. he is resting on the earthbag stemwall. these bags are sitting on ground level, right over the rubble trench. they are rice bags, filled with the same dirt excavated from the trench, mixed with 10% cement to stabilize the dirt and 20% water, then filled the bags, fold the bags shut and tamped into place. to lock the bags together on the horizontal surface we laid 2 rows of barbed wire to stop them from shifting.
