Pics of the property and cabin
submitted 1 year ago by yetanotherone_sigh from self.OffGrid
I had a few people asking for pics. Since I'm 50 miles away right now, I went through my phone and found some I took back in May. This is a selection of the property, the tinyhouse, the solar panels, and just for the heck of it, a bucket. I made a cache of supplies on the back of the property. Just some food, a tarp and rope, space blanket, hatchet and knife, flashlight, fire starting stuff, etc.
Thought it would be of interest and spark some discussion.
Please feel free to post your own stuff.

The cache has been out there a year and a half. I opened it up to see its condition. Some light rust on the Dinty Moore stew can, which I replaced. Everything else looking good.

The solar panels being crooked is a funny story. I was building the mount out in the woods in hurry, with supplies I brought with me. It's made out of Kindorf hardware. I ran out of some pieces I needed to finish it, and I was 50 miles away from home. So I zip tied the rest of the panels in place. Still haven't gotten around to fixing it, so the panels are crooked. lol
The lesson here is: make sure you have your parts lined up before you go. Civilization is a LONG ways away.
I have to change this mount to add another panel, so I will fix it then. Adding another 100W panel and making the mount longer. Making a second mount right next to it to hold two 320W panels. Total solar install will be 1240W.
