Interstellar Orchard: Leadville Color and busy two days

Interstellar Orchard: Living on 100 Watts of solar

(April 18, 2018) -- So I mention quite frequently that when I boondock, which is over 90% of the time these days, I live on 100 watts of solar. The next question asked is usually: “What can you do with 100 watts of solar?” So today I thought I’d answer that. Read More »
