Abbreviated day today...slept in while Benita patiently waited for breakfast. Charged up a sealed 8Ah battery with a 15W solar panel this morning and checked it out with the panning rig. Ran it continuously for over 3 hours with plenty of juice to spare.
Shutting down early tonight....heading to the Ghost Town for the evening - a farewell dinner for my upstate friend Kristinna - one of Terlingua's favorite summer visitors. She starts her long drive home to Albany tomorrow morning. Photo added at 1:45AM 82,93,71,0,B
