Just got back

from a spur of the moment 1200 mile round trip drive up to northern California. How spur of the moment was it? Well, I actually left my house with a 200 mile round trip one day getaway in mind. However when I got to where I was originally planning to go (to Solvang, north of Santa Barbara) I literally just said what the heck, I feel like going up to San Francisco and a little beyond, so I did. The whole adventure was a lot of fun.

Nowhere

Just working around the yard.

First, dropped of daughter for sailing class. Then, went down to start rebuilding m-i-l's fence.

Windmills

Speaking of windmills and other things.....

I've been watching the local scrap places for one of these and found one this weekend. It's a specific motor on a front load washing machine that can be rewired and used as a windmill/water powered, power generator. I've put a couple links to information if anyone is interested in that sort of thing. They say it can run up to 500 or 600 wats with no problem.
