Thank you guys. It's been a pretty nice, peaceful time. Yesterday was our 2nd year of continuous boondocking/ traveling competed. I've said it already but will say it again, solar and 500ah lfp batteries are the cats meow.

Here is from the system since day 1 of installation.

I was surfing the web yesterday and came across this just east of Albuquerque, NM looks like neat side trip next time I'm near there.

I stumbled upon this thread and have been nothing less than been amazed of the gorgeous pictures. Hoping my mega-millions ticket is a winner tonight...fire up the truck and off we go

I have been following your thread of living my dream. Unfortunately I'm old enough to have aches and pains but not to the point of retiring, but someday. Until then I will live vicariously through your photos and experiences. Thanks for posting up the pics of the beautiful places you have visited and may you always have a tailwind and wider roads.

Worded so perfectly....

scraprat have you run the numbers for battery life with a residential fridge vs what you have now?

One other question, on edit, do you carry a sat phone or a texting gps unit?

Love your adventures!

This time of the year the Norcold will stay on propane, come late spring to fall I'll switch it over to electric and it will use 28ah for 6-14 hours (168-392ah) and the extra power produced from solar will handle most that. A residential will use 150-200ah total which I would have to run a generator more or add a couple panels for this time of the year till once again when the days get longer or add another 100-200ah lfp batteries.

No, just cell phone with a wilson booster when needed.

Another hidden gem in AZ for remote boondocking with no soul around except for the coyotes that can be heard now and then.



Through together a quick fire pit for a morning fire enjoying the scenery and a cup coffee. 40-45f mornings and afternoon 65-75f

A close up for folks in the snow belt.

Enjoy

Where did you get that wood in the campfire? Looks like maybe you stocked up from somewhere else maybe
Good to see some new photos from you.
