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!

Clouds / Charger Update
Looks like the next 7 days are going to be more cloudy than not so I worked on getting the charger where it won't be kicking dust all over the solar panels. Looks like I managed.
I set the charger on a pallet and boxed it in with 2x4s and long screws. I let it run for 35 minutes since it had started clouding up and I couldn't see any dust flying at all while it was running. From the forecast it looks like it will have to be run at least once daily for most of the next 7 days. I'll probably put a screened in hut over it until spring when I'll probably start building the hybrid buggy with it.
The last couple of days here have been nice t-shirt weather in the afternoons. Looks like Monday will change that. :(
