There is an active campaign to save the Lars Homestead. Several recent visitors, including Mark Dermul, are raising money to return and restore the place. More information is available at their facebook page or at Mark's own page (savetheigloo.info also directs to Mark's page). In addition, Mark was interviewed about the project on this week's Forecast. You can download the mp3 directly. His segment is near the end of the show.
Sounds like a cool idea and it looks like they are well on their way to raising the necessary funds. I'd love to participate myself, but it sounds as though they are keeping the group small. Plus, having been unemployed since Feb 2009, I don't really have the funds myself for such an adventure.
