My love for working on the Pathfinder will be slowing done for a good while but not just for any reason. b9d6ed1b1f64944d2dc6638f9e016a12.jpg i bought 30 acres of land in Show low, Az ;) not bad for being 26! So my new deal is a off grid ranch.

Haha donkeys, Pathfinder has enough done at the moment. I need a diesel truck!

No, actually, you need to go solar/electric and not look back. Keep the Pathy as well to supplement the golf cart though! ;)

 

Congrats on the purchase and I wish you the best of luck. That is a dream I can't realize here...

That's what am saying @ Precise1, doing wind turbines and solar. Will never get rid of my Pathfinder, ever. I'll restore it as it get older. 30 acres for $6500, just the wrong state your in. 069dfa168c2e6199e0d2a25c18eabaef.jpg my ranch gun haha

When the shtf we will all head your way.

 

$6500 for 30 acres, yeah not possible in ca. I don't think $6500 would buy much of anything here.

 

Good for you.

Nice, but hopefully you won't be needing that. ;)

Well, wrong state for some things, right for others; never seen where you can get it all, especially cheaply... :D

 

So one cool set up I have heard of is to have 2 water holding tanks in series, say 5,000 gallon tanks. The first is on a short tower, because there is no substitute for head... stay with me... and is piped into into the lower one via hydro generator/water wheel, etc. The lower has a sump pump type pump with a small solar panel/battery combo and a float switch that will pump up to the top tank when ever it is set to. This just tops off the the elevated tank for use in cleaning/livestock/irrigation water and as a suppliment to whatever battery system you will have. Have a heavy load or want to top off batteries? Use the hydro suppliment! A poorly made system with 50gpm and 10' of head should net you 500 watts for 100 minutes, and that is a good reserve.

 

I'm happy for you, I hope it works out the way you want. :aok:

That's awesome man!. Same here with the never going to own a house here. Going either south towards your new area, or north, outside of Bend. I like desert, and the mountains and woods. Cheaper south, but trying to think about how it's slowly getting warmer in summer and wetter in winter. Tough call.
