Time: 2:00 pm

Owner-Built Electric Vehicles, Log Cabin, Rocket Mass Stove, etc. Sunday, August 31, 2-6 PM at Dennis Miller’s shop in Tupper’s Plains (22 miles E of Athens).

Potluck after the tour. Please bring your own table service and a dish to share. Directions: Take 50 East to 7 South. Travel to 42428 In Tuppers Plains which is on the right just after the Tuppers Plains sign. This is the shop. From the shop travel on through Tuppers Plains on 7 to Success Rd. Turn left and travel to the water towers on the left. Continue past the homes to #9 Rd. Turn left and travel past the small bridges and turn left. Then continue and turn left at gate. Don’t follow Dennis: he’ll take a longer route because his EV will not climb #9 Rd. NOTE: the trail up to the cabin is somewhat rugged and about 1/4 mile. Most people who visit find this challenging.
