5 Corners Of Missouri

On Friday 9/29/2017, Eric and I set out on the 5 Corners of Missouri adventure. Its a trip I dreamed up after reading about other motorcycle adventures. The plan was to ride around the state of Missouri and visit the roads that were closest to the corners of the state. I came up with 5 corners because The northeast corner has a more eastern and a more northern area. If I got them both, I would have no doubt that I covered them all.  Here are a few photos of the trip and I’ll include the YouTube video once it finishes uploading.

Solar Install – 4/14/2017

I finally got around to installing the solar panels at Waterfall. Eric met me out there to supervise the install. I got all of the panels mounted before he showed up. Then it was a matter of organizing the cables based on what we had and plugging it all in, SUCCESS!

It needs to be cleaned up, but I have to go home and order some longer cables first.

Waterfall Batteries

We’re working on a solar system for waterfall so we can be off the grid. Eric came out with me today to install the larger batteries. We had to relocate them since there wasn’t room where the old one was. He brought out the soldering iron to make sure they last.

The batteries are installed and the power is on and working. We’ll have to come back another day and get the solar panels complete… Somebody forgot to bring drill bits 🙁
