October 22 & 23 , 2016  -  Visiting the Neighbor's

We continued to touch up the paneling in the cabin and on Sunday visited the neighbors for a nice lunch. To visit Ray we headed out cross country through the forest which felt like we were visiting the next farm 100 years ago.
Ray has a lovely cabin which offers beautiful views down and up river. He has situated the place so that the summer solstice sunset is directly down river. Very nice.
I added a couple more solar panels because we are not able to charge up the batteries fully yet. I note that the topmost panels are shading the middle panels which is not very smart. I plan to relocate them next week if I have time. Meanwhile this week I turned off everything, including the inverter so I hope we will have a full battery bank next week. The beer can solar heater is working great. Around one in the afternoon the inlet on the floor was sucking in air at 55F and it came out 68F on the top.
The mini power plant we installed in the wash house seems to be working well also. It shows a full 5 out of 5 bars and there was plenty of power to use the lights and camera including the auto light that illuminates the place when you approach it at night. All lit up it looks like a cathedral because of the wine bottle stained glass windows.
