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!

If all else fails SCREW IT! Which is what I did to the PVC joints on the catchment that came loose. There's a 20% chance of rain today, tonight and tomorrow. It looked like the bottom could drop out earlier, but now that I have the catchment fixed you can be sure it won't. I could sure use it though because the hose I patched that lost me 100+ gallons of water busted again yesterday and there went another 50+ gallons before I caught it.
I was using a set of jumper cables to temporarily tie the new batteries to the old ones in the battery hut. That kept giving me trouble so I did it right this morning and used 5/8 inch copper tubing to make buss bars out of. Works MUCH better now!
