Solar Power

FedEx brought my new 125w solar panel today.  When I pair that up with a 35w panel I already had, we will have 160 watts of power to maintain our batteries when we are out in the boonies.  Also picked up 396 sq. ft. of new carpet on Monday.  Things are going forward as planned.

The weather in southeast Idaho continues to be unseasonably mild.  Temperatures in the high 30's and low 40's all week long and predicted out for at least the next 8 days.  Life is good.

I am anxious to follow your solar project. After reading all the blogs of folks that have had solar panels installed, I am getting more curious about it.

It won't be long and you will have the road underneath you.

Just BS! (Bob and Sue)

Congratulations on your decision to become full-timers! It's an exciting time, getting ready for the road - remember, it's a journey, not a destination (even the getting ready part). Take your time and enjoy, we'll be looking forward to hearing of your adventures!
