The video is about a yearlong effort to improve a lot of 1.1 Acre in Utah, which we had purchased on September 4th 2002 on eBay.
It starts with ways of finding a lot in the desert, using satellite images, topographical maps, a compass and strings.

It displays ideas and thoughts on how to improve the land¹s value and documents our preparation for facing the unforgiving desert.

In August 2003 we finally went back to the lot and stayed there for ten days in order to stop a nearby running train.

Train stops have often been the first sign of an infrastructural improvement of an area and are also an option to make a living in the desert.
