While we were in Alpine to get pallets, lumber and supplies I scored a couple of the small auto fans that plug in to the cigarette lighter. I found that my solar battery charger will run one of them just fine so during the day time there won't be much drain on the battery. The fans only draw 10 watts each so I'll use the solar battery charger to offset battery drain and it should cut down on how often I'll have to charge the dedicated battery I'll be using for the cooler. I also picked up enough of the cooling pad material to make the evap out of. The second stage part will have to come later on, but I'll still have some cooling in the mean time.
Here you have RN standing by all of the pallets and stuff we scored in Alpine. By the time he had gone to pickup pallets in Odessa someone else had already hauled them off so fortunately McCoys in Alpine had plenty of free ones. We went there yesterday and loaded up! With all the new stiff and 4 more bags of concrete I'll have plenty to do to keep me busy for some time. Plans are to get my battery hut built, build a full time walk in shower so I can shower even in windy weather, Build the evap cooler and no telling what else. Like I said I'm going to be real BUSY for a while.
Note the beautifully warped stud setting on the pallet. While we were loading up studs I spotted this and thought it would make a perfect jig for the S-Rotor generator blades that I plan to build using the old car rear end. I asked the guy about it and he said load it up because they just threw away stiff like that so that worked for me! I love McCoy's!
