Im a total hands on learner, i want to get a simple solar panel set up going. Something to plug in a radio, a fan, a tv maybe, stuff like that while in the middle of nowhere. Ive read a bunch of stuff and almost all of it is total solar panel/electrical jargon, and i have no idea wtf anyone is talkin about. Id love to learn all about them. Small, large, diy, stationary, moveable, etc.

I am hoping some people there would have a bunch of communal info that can be shared. I will construct my set up immediately with the knowledge. Figured some others might like to learn aswell. Can anyone run this?

well there's certainly a lot of people doing very simple solar panel setups in slab city, including the library that is hosting the event, so maybe @VikingAdventurer could show you what the solar setup looks like in the library? i think you'll be stoked when you see how easy it can be.

Just as a heads up, the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous in Quartzsite in January also runs a pretty nice solar workshop. Pretty cool gathering, too.

I can give folks a rundown of my setup if they'd like to do solar workshop, Andrew is still learning
I was just about to say the exact same thing. I'm not too knowledgeable about solar power systems just yet, because I haven't set one of my own up yet.

@Cornelius Vango knows a SHITLOAD more than I currently do about how to setup these systems; so far, I pretty much just know how to maintain the system that they set up for The Library.

I'm totally, 100% down to learn more, though!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
