Just a quick update...

While we have been working a bit around here, the weather has been so nice we had to jump on the quads and explore!

Late winter update

Well we are quickly approaching the one year mark in our off grid adventure. After eight months we have delt with the hottest days of Aug and Sept. And are now past the coldest days of Dec and Jan. So far we have only had minor problems and upsets.
Although construction of a more comfortable living area has been slow, our optimisim is at an all time high. Taking what we have learned from our small solar system, we are about to put in one that will be large enough to keep us more in touch with the rest of the world... Yep we are DVR bound!
So excited!
We have also come a long way with landscaping. We have moved most of the clutter away from the buildings, and planted several trees, building planters around them to keep them from being someones dinner. Next on the list will be adding two water catchment systems before the next monsoon season.
Not to shappy for working full time, and home schooling!

Rain rain and more rain....

We got a bit more rain over the weekend, and more today. Also had some fog come through Sunday morning that really reminded me of SoCal. Nothing like the smell of the desert after a good rain...
