I'm still in Laughlin Nevada, and it's been kind of chilly the last couple of days but worse it's been really cloudy so my solar panels have not been keeping my batteries fully charged. But today was sunny and clear so the batteries got up to 95% of a full charge. I made the decision early on not to get a generator hoping that my solar panels could handle the load, but in the winter with the sun low on the horizon they don't put out as many amps as they do in the summer. Most people get around this problem by tilting their solar panels to face the sun but that's a pain to get on the roof and move your panels up and down so I decided I would try to put enough panels on the roof that I could still get all the power I needed even though they were laying flat. This worked pretty good until I had two straight days of cloudy weather and then the panels couldn't keep up with my usage. The solution may be to add another panel or two I know I've got room for one more but it will take some measuring to see if I have room for two more.
The Riverside casino here in town has a car collection inside and since it's free I spent a couple of hours this morning looking at the old cars. It makes me feel really old to look at antique cars and be reminded of my childhood but that's what these cars did. Just as you walk in the door there are two motorcycles a Yamaha 360 enduro and a Triumph 650 Bonneville, I owned bikes just like those when I was younger and it really brought back some good memories.
