Blog Links, Financial Advice And Helping To Christmas Shop.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Things are definitely getting back to normal around here where I only slept for an hour before lying in bed staring at the ceiling. To remedy the situation and to not wake Kathy I spent the next couple of hours on the computer before I was tired enough to fall back to sleep. I slept until 7:30 this morning meaning that I got about three hours of sleep total.

Once we’d finished eating breakfast we returned to the computers where we got caught up on the latest blogs to be printed this morning before moving on to other electronic chores. Kathy finished making her expenditure entries on the budget spreadsheets I created so we can keep track of our spending. Since I’ve been doing so much research on Solar Panel Systems I thought that I’d make it easier for myself and anyone else that might be interested about solar by adding their links at the bottom of our blogs under the Commercial Links For RVers. The company names are AM Solar, Alt E Store and Renogy Solar. They all have their own special features, different product lines and pricing variables.

According to the weather guessers we were supposed to have a clear but still cold forecast for today. Imagine our surprise when we looked out the windows to see more large flakes coming down with an intensity that we couldn’t see the truck from the apartment. Fortunately that only lasted about ten minutes and the s@#w started to melt.

Later this afternoon we travelled across town to meet with Mark our financial advisor. When Kathy explained to Mark about our plans of going Fulltime while our health was still good he was totally happy for us. He also showed us the pictures of the latest addition to his family. Ever since we’ve known Mark he has been more of a friend than someone who continues to make our money work for us.

After getting back to the apartment I needed to make a phone call. Since I never got the call back from Keith at London Fuller about the solar equipment we talked about on the weekend I called AM Solar in Oregon. I spoke with Dave and explained what our setup is at this time, how much we wanted to expand it and what I had been told by others. He confirmed that what Keith had told me about not mixing the different strengths of panels was true. He also confirmed that you cannot mix a solar system with a wind generated system. He did however tell me there was no reason that we couldn’t use the number 4 welding cable from the roof to the controller.

After supper our daughter Karen came over and picked up her mom to help her with her Christmas Shopping. They were gone for nearly two hours and had time to talk more about our Fulltiming while they drove around. Karen has been a little skeptical about our plans ever since we told her about them. Speaking more about it with Kathy tonight she is starting to understand why we are doing it now.

Tomorrow the temperature is actually going to go above the freezing mark and I’m still trying to get pictures posted to our blog. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Eventually you will get the solar system you want, they do have their limitations though, enjoy the research. I did.
