Truck Camper Solar

Every sunny morning. This is the set up. The wind took the panels the other day, so bungee cords are now attached to the panels.

I am very happy with the Jackery “portable power station”. It has a pure sine wave, which the Mac requires. It is SO light. The Jackery solar panels are snazzy and well made.

Cooking has been fun. This was a cabbage/tomato/garlic/egg dish.

The weather has been wonderful. Sunshine in the 70’s. During the days of restless winds I read inside the back as the truck rocks and sand peppers the aluminum topper. Feel so safe and comfortable.

I have been crummy at updating the blog. A friend (thanks Cindy) sent a big box of books. Delicious books. So I read. And read. The joys of being retired in the desert in winter!

Am running out of advice for truck campers. Any thoughts?

    We don’t need no stinkin’ tips. We just want to hear about what you’re doing even if it’s rocking and reading in the back of the truck. No matter what you are doing your posts are always uplifting. It’s your attitude about life that we enjoy. Have fun out there.

        Interesting list – only read one of the many (anything by Vonnegut is great). I’ll have to look the others up.

        From me;
        Anything at all by William deBuys (The Walk is short and powerful)
        The best of David Sedaris (from the library)
        The Kindness of Strangers (collection of essays about traveling)
        Fortunate Son by Rick Bass
        Anything at all by Ed Abbey (Especially Desert Solitaire)
        The Island Within by Richard Nelson
