Around The Rocks And More Solar

We are generating power!!!  The cowboy found it very easy to program the MidNite solar controller and before lunch time yesterday he was powering the extra refrigerator we carry in the trailer off the solar system!!

After dinner last night with the ATV gang we all decided it was time for getting back out on the machines.  Just before lunch today we headed north toward Congress out behind Al and Kelly’s house.  The rock formations and colors are spectacular out there plus there is a forest of saguaros.   

Geri looks as if she is taking a nap, I think if we had been stopped long enough she would have! SmileIMG_1008

And this is NOT a southern belle--

IMG_1019Even Emmi was ready for ATVing—not sure how I managed to catch that tongue in action!! 


The weather was perfect for being out in the sunshine—building up our Vitamin D!  Jackets and vests were the order of the day.



IMG_1032IMG_1036Another wonderful day spent in the desert with great friends!  Back in Congress we stopped at the Congress Junction for ice cream, Larry broke speed records getting back after someone mentioned “ice cream!!” Winking smile


  1. Looks like you covered a lot of terrain today!

    Steve asked how much does the fridge draw?

  2. Our system isn't large enough to run anything as large as a fridge. We are lucky to get a few lights, and charge our phones and laptops. Of course, in summer sun we can get more during the day, but at night electricity is still in short supply. Looks like you had a great ride. Too bad our trails don't have any ice cream stops. - Margy

  3. I love that photo of Emmi and her dad! Isn't it wonderful that you are able to bring her with you!! She is clearly enjoying herself! (she heard the word ice-cream...hence the tongue!! haha)

  4. Your photos are wonderful! Love the group shot and the saquaros in the rocks. Emmi is priceless with her doggles and her bright pink tongue!!

    Congrats to Michael on another successful project - sounds like you've got plenty of power now :-))

  5. I do believe ATV's are necessary if one spends much time in this area. Boy, you all have so much fun out on the trail:) Emmi is way too cute with those shades:)

  6. Like Paulette said - great photos! Now, if Mike can get solar working on those ATV's then he'd really be on to something big!!
