Y'all be safe out there. We are at Fort Sam Houston and taking it very careful. Ordering take-out, drive up windows, wearing masks and keeping distances. So far so good. Today San Antonio had an additional 936 cases pop up. Stupid COVID19 is on an upswing.

Be careful, be safe! However you do it!

We travel as safely as we can.
Depending on where you are at any given moment the rules of conflict change.
Heck, in BC the rules of conflict change sometimes hourly.
Everyone fighting the same disease under different rules.
Weird to say the least.

I don't want to be behind this being towed down the road.
Wonder if he can park it in a normal parking spot.
Definitely no one is going to block him in.

I need to borrow one of those for a day or two. Tell them I'll provide free parking in the glorious Arizona desert in exchange for letting me play with that toy.

I have great plans for building a geothermal loop out one side of Connie and back in again.

It's a TOAD crusher.

It would be cheaper to rent one.

Barb, if you want to play with big machines, you should pop over to UK to Diggerland.

https://www.diggerland.com/days-out-in-kent/
My daughter lives near there and took us to visit a couple of years ago. End loaders, excavators, dump trucks, et al, it was a real playground. I think there may be one in the US somewhere.

Also, you may be interested to know we are committing to a solar array. 28 450w panels (12.6 kw) on a single ground based structure with capability of tilt. We discovered by word of mouth a local farmer who is also an agent for an Indiana company building this system (Ag Technologies Inc)

With a 26% federal tax credit and a very generous Illinois cash refund based on the sale of solar carbon credits, we end up paying a very small percentage of the system price.

This in addition to the reduction in our utility bill.

Solar is the way to go.

Martin are you and Sue below 40N because everything I have read in the past claims north of 40 pretty well is a no mans land when it comes to solar. I haven't followed the idea any longer ever since we sold our house.

BTW PM me your e-mail so I can pay you the $10.00 I owe you.

Well, Dennis, believe it or not, we are exactly 3 miles south of 40N (incidentally, on the very same latitude as the Olympic Stadium in Beijing where we were 10 years ago).

Our farmer/agent suggested we contact the Renewables Manager at our electric utility and ask him to print out a 'time of use' chart. This took our minute by minute consumption log over the last year and put it through some program involving records of sunlight over the year for our location. After correcting for our absence for the first three months, the calculation showed we would save on average $90/month.

And that does not include any income for sale of excess generation back to the utility. At the moment, under some federal rule to protect the coal industry, they have reached the limit to allow net metering. However, we share the hope that the new administration will relax or remove that restriction so we can enjoy the full benefit.

$10 owing - what was that for.

Here's some of the equipment I snapped a picture of during the construction of my campground/RV park. We had quite a bit of iron out there for a while.

I got to play with stuff like that when my ex and I redid the septic system on our farm years ago. Way too much fun to be had by all, especially me.
