Thanks for sharing your ideas. Too bad we are all so spoiled by modern day conveniences that we are unable to live without them! Here is a link to a good article on solar dehydrators.

I'm soooo glad you like them.  All my articles were written because this is what I want to do someday soon..so I am researching these areas so as not to be caught off guard when the time comes.  I think that living a more natural life is freeing.
