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!

Early Morning Fun (NOT)
Ring came down Monday and brought a new motor for the charger and it turns out to be a real good thing. We got that changed out yesterday and after all the cloudy to partly cloudy days I was in bad need of it. Solar just wasn't cutting the mustard. Now I'd also failed to check the watter in the batteries and they aren't holding voltage near as long as they should be. I did top the batteries off yesterday also, but they are still loosing voltage way to soon. That caused me to wake up at 3:40 AM to go fire up the charger because the inverter had cut out. I've had the charger running for about an hour and will run it for another hour and then MAYBE I can get some more sleep.
We also got the two new/used tires I'd bought from Gill on the falcon and I also bought a spare from him so I hope to be driving it again pretty soon. In the mean time the Jeep is doing real good after Gill worked on it. Maybe I'll show the trike some attention before long. We took it out to the swimming hole and I intended to take the camera, but forgot it so no pictures from there.
