Re: cooling your tent or van

Building my first bucket swampy and I've got a couple observations and questions regarding the duracool pads. The orange Homer buckets at my local Ham Despot are different dimensions than specified: 14.5" deep x 10" internal diameter at bottom and 11" internal diameter at top. I cut my first set of ...

Re: Struggling a Bit with Solar/Battery Numbers and Expectations

Thank you both for the help, I appreciate it greatly. AGM sounds good, albeit a little spendier but worth it. I'm having a hell of a time finding anything in 60-70 or 120-140Ah though. I *am* finding 12v 35Ah AGM's for ~$50 a pop.. would it be a poor choice for any reason to parallel four considerab...

Struggling a Bit with Solar/Battery Numbers and Expectations

I'm new to all this stuff and have always struggled to grasp concepts relating to electrical currents, measurements, and how power is stored and discharged. But I've been reading and pushing myself and running some numbers, and I *think* I'm getting close to figuring this stuff out. I'd like to chec...

Re: Bugs and Tickets

I've figured the dedicated burners would just view the bugs as another obstacle, of which their are always plenty out there.

Bugs and Tickets

Reading about the green bug problem this year I can't help but wonder if some of the current ticket holders will be suddenly turned off by the infestation reports and start selling off their tickets in a hurry. This is the time of year where last minute cancellations usually start to break free a go...

Is it possible to set one of these up to run directly off of solar power without getting batteries involved?

Good thing this poll has plenty of options.

I'd vote 2010 over 2009 for me, personally, because I got out and interacted with people far more. I have no idea what 2002 was like. What other years did it rain? I didn't expect to enjoy that as much as I did.
