My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

Charger and high wind again! (Sand to)
Worked in the high wind and sand storm all day, but I look forward to better days. I wanted to get the charger done and since the genny won't run the welder I built it as a bolt together, (see picture). I got it finished out side of wiring it up and getting the Harley gas tank mounted for it to run off of. Hopefully I can get that done tomorrow and be able to charge the batteries from it rather than the falcon like I've done for the last three days. Only takes 15 minutes with the falcon, but that's a pretty good waste of gas, Should take about the same time with the charger for a lot less gas and I can doctor and start working on the other 6 batteries after that.
Looks like it may be another COLD night in here tonight because the propane take is nearly empty, but I didn't want to make the trip to Study Butte to get the tank filled. I'll tough it out until early morning and use the remaining propane to warm the place up before getting up. Glad I have plenty of cover!
