    Do you still use wind generators ? and will the hail destroy your solar panels ?

      I learned a long time ago that the sun is much more reliable than the wind out here. Most people don't realize that wind turbines need at least 15 mph winds to produce usable electricity for charging batteries. It is rare that we get that wind speed on a consistent basis but the sun shines 350 days per year. So far we have only had pea sized hail out here (and only 4 times in 9 years) which is not a problem...baseball size would definitely be a problem.

      +TheFieldLab The ankles are tough to heal. I find 100% unprocessed milk and butter helpful for my old carcass.

      The dam washed out after a big rain. For a brief period during the storm, I had a lake that was 20' deep, 75' wide and 200 yards long. Too expensive to try it again (and do it right). http://thefieldlab.blogspot.com/2011/09/i-thought-this-might-happen.html

    My wife and I were down your way from va a few years back, right before the murder that happened, we loved that area, the heat felt so good we wanted to stay, we rode 3000 miles through tx and loved ever mile of it, except, Houston, Dallas, ect, we really loved Fort Davis area, and the Palo Duro canyon area, we will be back one day, and spend more that a week. when there i feel i was born there in that beautiful place.
