Charlestown and Falls of the Ohio

This trip I took my dog with me, and I have to say. Charlestown is an excellent park with some very good moderately techincal trails. Normally, I'd like to cover a little more distance but doggo really seems pretty tired so we'll call it good. I did take the opportunity…

An Approachable Guide to Being a Better Consumer

Many of us have been conditioned over the years to buy the best, or the cheapest, or the thing that's never let me down before. Today, I'd like to talk about buying the "goodest" instead. 2020 was a rough year, and it demonstrated the outright greed and corruption in every…

Electrical 2.0

Ok, I have a good idea of what I want in a final electrical solution. It needs to be reliable, flexible extensible and it needs to have enough capacity that I don't have to worry about how I use it (within reason). Immediately, I knew I was going to go…

Electrical Solutions?

Ok, so the simple setup I started with fell flat. I'm a natural-born problem solver, and this is a problem I'm fully qulified to solve! So, what did we learn? We need much more capacityWe need faster charging, with more optionsSolar is unlikely to be successful as a single charging…

Electrical Challenges

Back in Starting Electrical, I wrote about a simple solution to getting some power deployed in my van. This was excellent, as it gave me the ability to practically measure how I really used power with some test trips. What I discovered was what I needed wasn't necessarily a massive…

Beware of False Prophets

Fortunately, this park is the real deal. This is a great park for taking the kids and/or bikes. My hike was unfortunately scuttled a bit by weather and flooding, but it was still an enjoyable visit and a park worth visiting. The park was well maintained and the trails…
