Tuesday, June 23, 2020 – Search for Cell Signal

Hi Sweetheart,
Lola was restless all night, what with the thunderstorms that kept coming in, so my night was interrupted numerous times with her scratching at the bedroom partition. Ended up getting up lat because of that. I decided to put the electric fence up around the back end of the site, since I hate leaving tied to a hitching post, and I couldn’t leave them on their anchors without being here to watch them, and I knew I was going to have to go out and find a cell phone signal and get some computer work done. I managed to find a hill with a pulloff not too far up the road, but I was there for a lot longer than I had planned, but at least I got some stuff done. When I got back to camp, I did put the horses out for a few hours, which they appreciated. Toward the evening, Apollo decided to go on walkabout, and I had to go fetch him back all the way from the other side of the campground. The rest of the day I spent reading and playing computer backgammon. I’m in a nice sunny spot for most of the day, so I’ve been getting a lot of power from the solar panel, even with the clouds this morning. Once it cleared up in the afternoon it worked well. I’ve been watching the voltage on the inverter to see how low it can get before the generator won’t start, but so far, I’ve been able to, and I’ve been running it for about 10-15 minutes twice a day. So far so good! Of course, I haven’t been using much power anyway, so it will be interesting to see just how low I can let the batteries get before I have to bring out the BeatIt battery jumper. I remembered I had some stuff on the Dish PVR, so I watched a one hour movie from 1936 just for fun. Now I’m ready for my shower and bed. Good night, babe! Love you!
