For those of you who do not know John, he is a bit of an eccentric. Lives
in a log cabin without heat, phone, running water, etc. However he is one
of the very best wet plate practioners in North America (Along with
Scully and Osterman - who brought back wetplate from the depths of God
knows where) John rode his horse and buggy down to Gettysburg for the
reenactment this year and anybody who knows anything about wetplate can
attest to his skill and patience.
