Day 5: EPIC FAIL!!

23 11 2016

I went to bed last night in Amarillo, TX to the house power being out. The Interstate batteries that looked (relatively) new, turned out to not be so… We lost power just after finishing the second movie.. with just a computer, a screen, and a dvd player using house juice, no lights. Plus the power to the refrigerator.

IT WAS COLD, Awoke to 41 degrees! We had no power for the fridge, and none to power the fan for the gas furnace. SO, we bundled, and I awoke to michelle in 2 blankets, pjs, and her sweatshirt with the hood up! She was so cute… but I digress…

First thing, I went into the “blue box”, returned the movies, and got 2 new house batteries, replaced them, and I think that we are A-OK… Good deep cycle marine batteries, that will keep us powered up until I get the solar back in place.

Today was also a moving day, in several ways. Made our way from Amarillo, TX to Oklahoma City, OK and finished at sundown at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial. It is something that I have been wanting to so (bucket list item) and I am glad that we did. Very humbling experience. That was a very electric time, sun going down and the lights coming on, it was a very humbling experience. See that part at the end of todays’ video.

Tomorrow, off to Little Rock, AR!

See you then..

Steve
