A Cowboy Camper

Here's a video interview of Mike McCain, who lives at the City of the Sun community in Columbus, New Mexico. Mike is a progressive inventor and sustainable builder who is committed to creating affordable and versatile shelters for Mexican migrant workers and families.

This particular structure can be built in one day for $250, and can shelter up to three adults and serve as a taco stand or other vending enterprise. Mike is determined to also create affordable, portable an expandable "starter homes" for poor Mexican families that can be easily duplicated and transported to wherever they are needed. He is truly a visionary with a mission that is much needed for our times.

  1. That is not bad for a five minute elevator pitch. He's practiced that before. :-)
