runnin’ on empty

Isn’t this a Bruce Springfield song?… oops  Jackson Browne


Nothing like running your gas tank down to beyond empty….


I’m sitting at WinSol adapting a winter hibernation period.  I made the classic off-grid mistake of forgetting design parameters and nature got the best of me… as in NO SUN!

I always say ‘a solar home without sun really sucks’  and I’m feelin’ it.   There is one saving grace here… it’s not like a car… even with the voltage down to 11.8, i can still run the LED lights, read books, etc.  And the propane stove and the new rocket mass heater makes it a bit comfy… but I’m down for the count regarding living the mainstream desires…ahhh us spoiled technology children.
