    You had to remind me about that video, Tom . I just looked at what was so crazy everybody was talking about . After watching that again , I must'a been crazy to be up there .I agree with you all, yup I'm one crazy dude. I won't be going up there for a couple of months . That mild heart attack and the stents slowed me down for a month or two. I can't wait for that oimet canyon zip line opens in spring. It's like almost a half mile long. That's going to make an awsome youtube flick starring yours truly.LOL My little tower is nothing compared to that. What are these little faces on the right of the screen for? I moved one and it put an address or something on this reply . posting.php?mode=reply&f=25&t=571#:mrgreen:

    You've got a beautiful location . Reminds me of north west Texas. flat and windy. Im sitting here in a major snow storm April 3 sweeping off my panels every hour . My Turbines are collecting snow .( praying that they don't just quit) You must be off grid with your system . I didn't see any grid tie inverters in your system. You can check out my channel at (http://www.youtube.com/user/bubblytubebob ).LOL Rob
