New Battery Bank

The Field Lab - Tue, 2019/11/19 - 2:56pm
New batteries and busbars hooked up and charging.  Put down one section of the final bathroom floor first.  I don't ever want to have to move those batteries again...they weigh 100 lbs. each.  70,82,41,0,B

Christ In You

The Field Lab - Sun, 2019/11/17 - 3:12pm
Colossians 1:25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God; 26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: 29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

The Utilities Wall

The Field Lab - Sat, 2019/11/16 - 1:42pm
Finally got the Casita batteries and I will be installing them next week...the ones we had were loaners from TFL so we could get phone and internet.  Went in this morning and disconnected everything from the solar panels and pulled out my batteries.  Installed a firm backing of OSB for the electronics and future plumbing (water pump, expansion tank, and water heater).  63,74,37,0,B

1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

interior trim

The Field Lab - Sat, 2019/11/09 - 3:35pm
Started the interior trim today and had to figure out a way to wire the light switch for the living room.  All the other wiring I can hide with trim...but not this run.  Ended up having to remove one section of ceiling tin to have just enough room to drill a hole through the double top plate so I could snake the wire behind the wall.  It's all in the details...  65,78,50,0,B

The Evil Out Here

The Field Lab - Thu, 2019/11/07 - 1:42pm
Had a rather large FBI raid at the compound near Camels Hump on the ranch today.  Seems they finally found just cause to take Tom Arthur into custody.  Many of the locals have known about his history for years but apparently he was very careful about avoiding prosecution by only trading "fictional" stories about raping children.  He rarely left the compound and I only saw him once in the 12 years I have lived here.  His wife Sandra Parks was active on Facebook years ago as part of a donkey rescue operation.  I sent her a friend request and told her I would like to meet her.  At the time she told me she and her husband are rather reclusive and prefer not to have visitors.  Their compound is surrounded by locked gates and surveillance cameras.  Once I figured out where she lived, I called her out on her husband's pedophile website that I had learned about from the above link that another local passed on to me.  She unfriended me right away and soon disappeared from Facebook altogether.  Nice to know the law has finally caught up with these deviants.  Will share more news on the raid as soon as it becomes available in the press.  55,64,58,0,B

tank tucked in...

The Field Lab - Wed, 2019/11/06 - 3:21pm
Pre storm drill at the Casita ahead of the chance of rain tomorrow.  Everything powered down and unplugged in case of lightning / downspouts secured / tank tucked in.  If we don't get any rain, I have made arrangements for a delivery of 300 gallons of water to make sure the tank won't budge.  79,88,63,0,B

Religion...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2019/11/03 - 12:46pm
Am I religious?...No.  I hate that term.  Too many people make the mistake of thinking that those who are "religious" have made a choice based on some mystical belief system.  Have I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and welcomed the very real influence of The Holy Spirit in my daily life?...Yes.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Big Boy

The Field Lab - Sat, 2019/11/02 - 3:45pm
Took a little overnighter in Alpine to shoot the Big Boy as it rolled in last night and left this morning.  Video Monday.  Took a real shower and pooped in a real toilet for the first time in years at the Highland Inn.  (sorry - no video of that)  57,65,36,0,B
